I revel in long, intimate conversations with trusted friends, while family members turn to me for avuncular wisdom. I am strongly relational, seeking depth in a partner.
I am at peace with myself. If I don’t find the right partner, I will remain happy. Although I currently have no formal spiritual practice, I am deeply committed to truth and self-discovery. I have strong ties with a wide variety of people, from devoted Christians to pagans, Buddhists, and New Age hippies.
My extended, local family includes a loving mother, three siblings, four wonderful sons, and numerous nieces, nephews, and grandchildren.
Music is essential in my life. I play nursery rhymes for tots, sing old-time songs for seniors with dementia, and lead singalongs with my guitar and my own songbook. I compose tunes for piano and play bamboo flute in the forest.
Dancing – the shortest path to joy in this world! Swing, contra, rock, Scottish, English Country, expressive. I have enormous energy: you won’t find me sitting on the sidelines. And what sweeter dance than a flirtatious waltz! And yet, there is more to dance than courting, more to love than romance, more to eye-gazing than meets the eye.
I grow flowers and perennials, as well as growing and canning fruits and vegetables. I correspond with far-off friends, deftly handle finances and bureaucracies, attend philosophical cafes, cook vegetarian meals, give balloons to kids, solve problems of every kind, attend elegant English Country Balls, scramble up mountain streams with my biologist son, play frozen tag with the neighbourhood kids, eat too much chocolate, and play scrabble with my mom. I am little interested in TV, competitive sports, celebrity, dining out, amusements, shopping, or luxury cruises. I have enjoyed in the past, and am open to, other healthy activities, such as hiking, camping, bicycling, canoeing, tobogganing, film, meditation, and self-growth retreats.
I’m a handyman and philosopher, artist and scientist, believer and skeptic.
I edit academic papers as well as creative fiction for friends, and my writing skill you may judge for yourself. I am looking for a woman who can similarly express herself – and thus reveal herself – on the written page, on the phone, and, of course, in person. I am truthful and open, sensitive and diplomatic. Oh, and frugal.
If this profile resonates with you, we match in lifestyle, and my photos please you, I would be delighted to hear from you.
By the way, if you view my personality profile, it charts my spirituality as "less than average". That's crazy. Spirituality is very important to me. I think the wording of some of the test questions are suspect.
