I have an artistic soul ; I'm funny and light-hearted, but also have a deeply serious side...I embrace the sublime and the ridiculous, the light and the dark......And I'm a realist more than a pessimist or optimist. My creator made me a deeply passionate person, and I'm still a believer in finding a forever love (guess I'm still the optimist here).
Also, the "other" religion that I'm "somewhat serious about" is not really a religion per se...I adhere to a strong sense of spirituality that includes teachings of various religions, with a healthy dose of pure, old-fashioned hippie ethics and spirituality, and although I definitely am not stuck in the 60's, I AM grounded in what I learned from those days, both politically and spiritually.
I have a youthful outlook on life . I've always heard that I'm supposed to become more conservative as I get older. Hasn't happened yet, and I'm positive it's never going to. If anything, the current political climate in this country has me feeling more radical than since I was in my 20's, and I remain progressive and open minded in other areas of my life too... I'm hoping to meet someone who can say the same about herself.
BTW, I feel I need to address the fact that OKCupid's characterizations of my personality as being "more this and this , and less that and the other", are somewhere between baffling and absurd.I hope my profile and Q&A will be more enlightening as to who I am and what I'm about than their arbitrary characterizations.
