My self-summary
I love living in Portland. Love the coast too.

I enjoy simple things like a beautiful hike or bike ride. I love a happy cat (or two) on my lap, an evening picnic in a park, sunsets at the ocean, a walk in a forest, a warm woodstove in the winter.

Friendship, experiences, adventures, and my animal family are the most important to me. I also like art around the house. I would love to meet someone who finds great joy in simple, beautiful things, and who values friendship, loyalty, and respect. I don't care much about your resume (or mine). Much rather know what you think of the scent of sun-baked pine needles, or the best place to escape city lights to see more stars.

Tinkering and fixing things
Finding agates on beach walks
Building a bunch of my own furniture
I have been told I have a good eye for art
Making cats happy
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Six things I could never do without
Friends, pets, a place to retreat (home), a bike, ocean visits, all forms of art/creativity.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
That there is no perfect map. How one friend can lead to so many others. Stars on a dark night away from the city. At some point, I think I will need to live where stars are out more often than Portland (sorry, Portland). How the heck the Universe happened?
Finding Shangri-La beneath the summer moon.
On a typical Friday night I am
Just about anything, at home, at work, having fun, ...?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I named my bicycle after a cat I loved and had to say goodbye to a while ago-- I had it painted his color and had his name is painted on it. Maybe not too private, but it is pretty personal to me, and it is probably the most precious non-living thing in my life. I painted my house about that same color too. There may be a pattern here...
