I'm looking for someone to make me laugh, and to make laugh. Someone to share music with, wander through the wilderness, dance with, dream about, teach, and learn from. Someone who knows why she's here, and follows her passion.
This poem sums it up best:
….Are you there?
I have a request
I want a love that tastes like the crunchy bottom bits of lettuce
That smells like rain and freshly cut cedar
A love that isn’t daunted by morning breath kisses
That doesn’t desire cake shoved in its face
Or a diamond ring
I want a love that is full of zaniness
A love where our souls intertwine fingers
Smile with glee and make our ice cream cones smooch
I want a love that doesn’t flee from work,
Yes, I said work.
A work that maintains euphoria
A work that strengthens connection
Outlives the momentary excitement of a honeymoon
I want a love that wants to be exposed
Taken into the daylight
Shouted from mountaintops
Undressed in a smile
That is defined simply by its existence
Barefoot in vulnerability
I want a lover that tends the fire in my heart willingly
Nurtures it patiently
Stokes it up
Lets it howl
And smolder slowly
I want a love that can sit quiescently
I want a love that can surpass distance
A love that scoffs at insecurity and jealousy
Saturated in rapture
A love that demands more imagination than dinner and a movie
I want a love where we make forts,
Throw pasta on walls to see if it’s finished
Make love on counter tops and let dinner burn
I want a love where we tickle ’til we bruise and may just burst open
I want a love where we can make love with our finger tips and our toes
I want a lover who shows up
I want a partner who can carry my mountain and their own
Across rivers, and over prairies.
I want a lover who knows the importance of space in our togetherness
I want a lover who never quits expanding
I want a love where our spirits dance
And we wake up with I love yous and fall asleep in gratitude
And that’s enough.
~ Janne Robinson
I grew up rafting, backpacking, and snowboarding...I love the outdoors. I was in a bad motorcycle accident in 2009 (got run over by a truck!) from which I'm remarkably unscathed by all appearances, but I have to be a bit gentler with my back now. It's been an adjustment.
Lately I'm feeling some wanderlust, wanting to travel. For some reason New Mexico is calling me. Or maybe South America. Perhaps just toss a dart at a map?

I don't have cable anymore...yay! I used to enjoy the Daily Show and the Colbert Report, Futurama and the Simpsons. I get stuff like Mad Men or Pillars of the Earth on Netflix but don't spend much time in front of the tube.

I try to avoid processed food. Other than that I like almost everything. Love new experiences but definitely a sucker for sushi! I love to cook and throw dinner parties with friends to mark the seasons. I also like to plant a veggie garden in the summer.
