Yes, I'm honest, responsible, respectful and adventurous. I'm looking to make friends as well as explore meaningful relationships. Looking to meet people who appreciate, as well as, make arts and crafts. Smart, gregarious and spunky.
Comfortable talking about nearly anything, enjoy meeting new people and am very comfortable and where water and forests meet.
Craft is a term used to describe something well made, not quickly, and often by hand. I like that approach but also have a spurt-of-the-moment adventurous part to me.
I am looking for engaging discussions, bike rides, in-line skaters, walks, canoe trips, and galleries attenders. I'd say swimmers but there's not a lot of interaction in swimming laps.
I may be a bit understated in my approach to life and self description, I think it's my Nordic roots and living 2 year in Scandinavia, nevertheless I aim high. Visiting someplace like the Caribbean has been calling me lately.

under construction. Close friends and other people.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
