I am my own flavor- As Micheal Franti/Spearhead sings "All the freaky people make the beauty of the world." I have the peace loving, environmental, organic eating side, but I also have a tough tits, tell you how it is, punk side. Some days I dress nice and classy. Other days i dress strange and funky. I wear crazy socks so I wont take life too seriously. My hair is a long hawk with green in it, because it makes me feel connected with my tribal side. I value individuality more than conformity. My rebel side gets in fights with my intellectual and educated side, that has studies sociology and psychology, and knows there is value to structure and conformity.
What DO I do for fun? Lately, my kids and I go swimming and roller skating a lot. I like to go tromping in the trees, go to a potluck, or cook a good meal and feed my friends. I would like to spend more time creating things- crafts, art, play music... I have gone to a few odd festivals and love the music scene, but find that I am not the biggest crowd person. I am more of a small genuine group person. I like to have inspiring and stimulating conversations. I would really like to visit some more countries.
I value honesty. I like to be very open book. I am great at keeping others' secrets and am someone people confide in often, but detest secrets of my own. They are too much work.
I am generous, compassionate, passionate, loyal, trusting... My kids have shown me what is important in life- love, play, patience, flexibility, structure, acceptance. Of course I can also be stubborn, rebellious, impatient... I am after all a real person.
THE NITTY GRITTY:
I have 2 adorable, and mostly good, kids, whom my world revolves around. They are 6 and 8, so they need me around most of the time when I am not working. I have had full time custody of these amazing little creatures for over 6 years. Though my energy is often directed toward my kids, I highly value all relationships I have and put a lot of work into them.
I am hard working and independent, so I don't NEED a man in my life. I just WANT one.
Perhaps it is the Pisces in me, but I am always dreaming and searching. I have detailed goals and aspirations, but am patient and grounded in the now.
If you think i am interesting, then say hi and give me something to respond to.
