Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Not going to attempt proper grammar here because this is but a
sketch: It all depends on chemistry, the mystery, and maybe a
little fate thrown in, but you never know until you meet! I have a
big generous heart or so I'm told! I've been in a few relationships
in my time and I'm proud to say I am still friends with most of
them which to me is the foundation, the anchor, the essence, and
everything else grows from that. I'm a left leaning eco omnivore,
gardener, poetic musician fellow, strong reverence for Nature. I've
lived in the Northwest for most of my life. Its difficult for me to
describe myself in this context and I find myself being a little
gun-shy in this particular realm, guess I'm kind of old school
living in the new school. To press the button or not press the
button?? Oh, and for all you dog and cat and horse lovers out there
I love our four legged companions too, just don't have any of my
own right now so don't hold it against me, same goes for kids, with
the exception of little hellions ;) but so far the children of the
world give me greater hope than most of the adults. So... are you
the one?? I try to make the world a better place in the landscape
design and musical realms, or with a kind word to a friend or
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have my hopes, visions and dreams of rural grandeur though
they've been tempered by this sweet city. Mostly I'm doing with my
life whatever is happening that day. I have a small
landscaping/stone masonry business, play in a band or two, I study
on my own and learn as I go. I love nature and love to ramble. This
doesn't make me a hippy.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
songwriting, working with plants and stone, communication, getting
along with most (nice) people and being a good friend, enjoying
life, cooking certain dishes, being spontaneous, creating rain
gardens, ponds, habitat, good with my hands, going with the flow,
camping, canoeing, getting high on wilderness.
The first things people usually notice about me

well thats kind of hard because I can't be inside their minds the
first time they perceive me though I do believe in the possibility
of telepathy if there is no deceit involved. Maybe that sounds
weird. But mostly I think people notice an openness or a healthy
level of enchantment

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
music, friendship, dreams, a beautiful landscape/ecosystem, books,
camping, the change of seasons, snow, sunsets, bizarre moonscapes,
stars, gardens, love
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Friday nights haven't been typical in a while, I don't work 9 to 5
mon thru fri, I like my nights not to be typical but my default is
a nice dinner, maybe a glass of wine, some sort of inspiring
cultural entertainment, but it really just depends on who I am with
and what we feel like getting into
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you want to grab a beer or go someplace fun! oh and as a side note
if we find each other interesting I don't mind answering a couple
questions here but after that I'd prefer to keep the on-line chit
chat to a minimum, its not my thang. But if we meet I promise to
look you in the eye, that I'm a good listener, and I'll be present
which I find it hard to do behind this screen :)
