I'm in search of a Companion, Explorer, Co-creator
Someone that seeks a loving, devoted friendship with emotional intimacy, someone that is willing to take a risk with their heart. I want someone that shares the values I aspire to and is also enthusiastic about some of my key interests listed below.
This book describes you . . .
Powers of Two
Finding the Essence of Innovation in Creative Pairs
By Joshua Wolf Shenk
New York Times Sunday Review
I don't have any race/ethnic preference.
Several people have asked about my views on religion . . .
I suggest that systems of belief based on faith instead of reason must not be given any greater or lesser due deference than any other form of artistic expression.
Far from a dismissal of faith it should tell you something of the high esteem upon which I place the arts.
A gestalt of my personality would be: passionate, creative, eclectic, and erudite.
I love all the arts and sciences and keep abreast of new developments in the arts, fashions and latest technological developments. I would love to find someone that likes to chat or even debate the feasibility and validity of these sorts of things .
I am searching for a special someone that is ready for a committed relationship. Someone that is into creative culture (music, design, dance et cetera), has a studied interest in one or more sciences, someone that can hold up a good conversation but is also comfortable with shared silence. Extra points if you read science fiction, fantasy, history, science textbooks.
Bonus points if you have a motorcycle so we could ride together. I've also recently purchased a 600cc sportbike, specifically a 2013 Yamaha YZF6R sport-touring motorcycle. I want to get a new GPS and saddle bags so I can take off on overnight trips on impulse and have room for fresh clothes and such. It would be great to find someone else that likes to ride and feel the wind.
I am really interested in surrounding myself with other creative people that are self actualizing and chose to live, work and play beyond the pale of convention
My interests . . . writing, political activism, sentient rights, sex and gender minority rights, community development, science fiction, computers, environmental sciences, environmental psychology, graphic design, material sciences, outsider art/ tech couture, culinary art, motorcycles, fast cars, and corsets . . .
I also am a computer graphic designer with more than 30 years of experience in CorelDRAW, Corel PHOTO-PAINT, Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop. Actually I stopped using Adobe products after they moved to a totally web subscription software as a service based system.
I don't really mind SaaS but I simply can't afford the staggering sum that Adobe is asking for Photoshop, Illustrator and Dreamweaver combined. I'm still testing alternatives as of this update.
Right now I'm learning how to program in Java which like C is an almost universal language for computers these days.
So basically I'm a social activist, scientist, science fiction writer, computer geek, graphic designer, and guitar player living in the valley of the sun, the land of perpetual summer.
"You never change something by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete."
~ R. Buckminster Fuller
My primary focus these days is called Project: Ancient West. To be brief it's the creation of an experimental, intentional community. Right now that means while I continue my scientific research I am also composing several successive stages of business plans to achieve funding without government assistance in the form of federal grants or loans.
This community has a special mission to support sex and gender minority people and their allies. There are perhaps a couple of dozen such communities around the world which are organically grown gay communities that thrive in a certain sense but they don't offer comprehensive features that would be common for a Cissexual, Cisgender community. No schools, hospitals, and the only jobs generally in the hospitality industry working in small shops, restaurants and bars. These communities offer a great night life but don't offer the things that people need to build a family as many gay, lesbian, gender variant people do with greater and greater frequency. They lack the specificity of purpose to remediate lives as is my intention.

About email and chat?
If you aren't interested in a reasonable period of communicating via email and chat to initially get to know each other than I am clearly not the girl for you. I am compatible with people that are literate and patient. That means more than simply being able to read and write.
I shower in the dark, love electrical storms, walking in the rain. ;-)
