I do have values and a belief system which fits both being a conservative and a hippie ,though I'm really neither because I am who I am and I'm as individual as it gets so I fit no mold.
As to "Lost/Saint" it is a reference to a combination of two songs known to be played together by the Grateful Dead - "Lost Sailor" and "Saint of Circumstance". Yea I did a few tours way back when.
Been widowed a number of years now. I don't do the club seen or organized religion so not that many places for me to meet new people and find that special someone to enjoy life with.
Always been somewhat of a loner anyway in that I've always felt humans are a virus eating away this wonderful planet we call earth.
That doesn't mean I'm anti-social or hard to get along with. Actually I'm extremely polite and easy to get along with. Unless given reason otherwise I treat everyone I meet with total respect. I am honest and will tell it as I see it whether you like it or not. This doesn't mean I'm not open to others views, I listen well and I am open to change.
I like to hike and enjoy nature. Though fully capable of hunting my own food if need be I prefer picking up a nice steak at the supermarket these days.
I'm very easy going and take life as it comes without letting things stress me out. I am a survivor who has been through a lot over the years both good and bad.
I see life as a journey of learning and discovery. Throughout my journey so far I've learned much and done my best to pass on knowledge gained whenever I could but I've never stopped learning and hopefully never will.
I am what I am and I'm looking for someone who will accept and love me as I am knowing I'll do the same in return. I don't feel that is too much to ask for. Is it?
Carlos Castaneda comes to mind,1984 by Orwell, O'Henry's short stories,pretty much anything that teaches the various mythology and religions of the world,anything I come across that looks interesting and something I'm in the mood for at the time.
Movies...I like Action,Horror,Sci-Fi and comedy mostly but will give anything a chance.I have a somewhat large DVD collection that covers many subjects and many years.
Music...I've traveled with The Grateful Dead a few times over the years , but Frank Sinatra has many a song I can relate to as well.
Other then that I'd say mostly classic rock and southern rock but I've been known to listen to just about anything and everything.Don't care for opera and most rap (not all) sucks.Other then that I'll give any music a try.
And food....What can I say? Food is not only something you can't live without but it can also be an art form. I enjoy trying new things.I've been told I'm a pretty good cook.I can cook just about anything/anywhere from a camp fire to a microwave,from road kill to Filet Mignon and make it taste great!
You'd be surprised at what can be done without and still be able to not only survive but enjoy life.
Six things I'd rather not do without:
Spending time enjoying nature
Water as in oceans,lakes,rivers and even a good rain storm from time to time.
Animals, because a dog will be your best friend even when your down and out. Plus animals whether living in your home or in the wild will accept you as you are without passing judgement or trying to change you.
Being with that special person who makes me feel complete and content.
What it's been and what it will bring as well as it's meaning and purpose.
If you're a fan of the Grateful Dead or at least have an understanding of the "Lost/Saint" concept of who I am than we have a great place to start. If not I would be happy to explain if you are interested.
Whatever you decide to do from here I wish you the best and hope you find whatever it is your looking for.
