My self-summary
I like creating things and helping people. Knowledge and joy keeps me moving forward. I use my hands, creative insight and resources to benefit myself and others.

I am respectful and sharing. I don't hold expectations for all relationships and interactions. Avoiding fantasy and working towards goals is better than creating an imaginary future or destiny. I am spontaneous, active and full of ideas and creations. My life is flexible and willing to allow things to happen. However, I can be stubborn and at times too confident. I am assertive and appropriately encouraging to most people. Everything changes and how one seeks to improve each opportunity is my genuine concern.

I enjoy husbandry tasks; the production, preparation, and preservation of food. Live music and building projects. Being in contact with nature is very important to me. Walking through the forest, hiking in the mountains, skiing, sea kayaking and fly fishing is where I am most content. Intimacy and a deeper understanding of each activity and interaction is my constant objective.
