This profile is horrendously our of date, so if there's confusion on any points, especially the poly/not poly thing, Ask Me! (For the record, I form loving relationships with women based on physical and psychological chemistry first, and on the basis of partnership type or status secondarily- which means, essentially, maybe I do, and maybe I don't, depending on the person. If I do get involved in a poly relationship, I prefer polyfidelity to what I have come to call "Buffet Style" - I believe in love, commitment, and closeness, and taking care of those you love. If all that doesn't freak you out, By all means, read on!
I'm a grown-up child of the 70's, who is into all things geeky and interesting. I grew up in the wilds of Northern Minnesota, and have a healthy respect for the environment and an abiding love of the outdoors. . I abandoned a life of long, stressful hours and hung-over mornings (Yes, I was a professional cook for 20+ years, how'd you guess?) to go back to college and get a degree in renewable energy engineering.
I play guitar, both electric and acoustic, and while I try to have an open mind and came up in the Punk Rock/New Wave years, I'm firmly convinced Rock Music had some of its finest hours in the 70's, when bands like The Grateful Dead, Zeppelin, Floyd, and the Stones were doing their best to re-interpret American Blues Soul, and Gospel. . I'll listen to anything that has Art at it's soul, so bluegrass yes, but no commercial pop for me, thanks.I revel in the obscure, and I'm very opinionated about what I know.
My Politics are left-leaning, but there's almost a libertarian streak in my liberalism. I believe in growing one's own food (as well as other consumables), and was raised doing so.I love bicycling or walking around Portland, Going out to the local hot springs, a good cup of coffee in the morning and a good pipe of herbs in the evening.
I'm kind of a mixed-up jumble of contradictions, both spiritual yet atheistic, geeky but warm, mellow yet rockin'. I despise Ignorance and love adventures, and laugh out loud when I hear "You can't do that." I believe when it comes to the big questions in life, any claim to know "How it all works" is patent B.S. I like Kitties and Dogs, and have a hard time trusting people who don't. Bonus for you if you know who Gram Parsons, Larry Niven, Ray Kurzweil, or Brian Cox are; double bonus If you know one or more of the previous AND dig pinball.
