I love to learn things, particularly things that can be useful. Which is how I learned to run a planetarium, test laboratory monkeys, drive a semi and host a spiritual radio show for over a year. There's always a new passion to discover.
I'm seriously overweight, but have lost 30 pounds so far. The rest will peel off as I get back on my feet - trust me, I've gone from obese couch potato to sexy athlete 3 times in my life, I know what it takes. The difference this time is that I've overcome the chronic, major depression that made it a cycle; I GUARANTEE once I get down, I'll stay there. If you're the type to want a woman to remain large, I'd rather be alone than fight you over it, so please let me take care of myself, and find someone who's more suited to you. Yes, getting it going takes time, but I've got a lot of projects; my career, my body, my harp, et al.
I would love to be part of an intentional community. I'm looking for property to put some alternative buildings on and live off-grid while doing some low-impact small-scale farming. I'm researching raising bamboo for construction and rabbits for meat right now. At least I'll believe that until I get a chance to do it and find out it's harder than I bargained for... lol. I don't believe there's an armageddon on it's way, but I know lives are lost every year due to loss of power, shelter, clean water, and so on. With jobs less secure these days, being able to take care of myself no matter what happens appeals to me much more than the thought of reverting to welfare, which has no appeal whatsoever. My ideal house is an earthship or a tumbleweed tiny house in a tree. Or both. A spiral staircase down the center of a treetrunk between the two? HEAVEN!
I value amusement to the point of seeming silly, which causes many people to underestimate me. I'm probably the most intelligent airhead you'll ever meet. I want to learn about everything; how it works, why it works, how to make it work if it's broken, how to build it, how to make one for less money or simpler or... everything!
I have a twelve year old son in Denver who is in a nuclear family. I don't get to spend enough time with him, but as he grows older he can spend more time with me. YAY! (I miss him like crazy!)
I've done my spiritual work; I'm not broken, don't need fixing. I'm no drama, low maintenance (not to be confused with NO maintenance). I just want someone whose got more yang in him than I do so I can be the grrl, and follow a strong leader through the forest undergrowth. You run into the spiderwebs, thanks; I'm right behind you... lol. I like scrabble, cycling, hiking, geocaching, fishing, celtic music performance and renaissance re-enactment. I like to discover new places with a good friend and believe adventure is the best way to stay fit.
I'm a devout Christian/Pagan/Zen Buddhist spiritual agnostic. I enjoy sewing, raising animals, designing and building things. I've been a planetarium lecturer, administrative assistant, technical writer, musician/singer (celtic/folk), dream interpreter, bat wrangler and various other things to earn a wage, and a volunteer when not earning. I figure life is an adventure, and every day there's something new to learn and experience.
