I'm creative, intelligent and have a wickedly witty sense of humor.
I do not sabotage my journey and extend the same courtesy to others.
I'm an excellent listener and communicator.
What I am searching for is a kindred spirit to dance, love, play, flirt, laugh, and share life with.
ONE OF MY FAVORITE QUOTES:
"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit." -- Aristotle
I've also held positions of researcher, investigator and paralegal working for a "people's attorney" in Wisconsin and Minnesota.
Currently I'm a media consultant, writer, and photographer for a small liberal arts college in West Virginia.
My ethics and integrity aren't for sale...even when it would appear it would be in my best interest to not say anything, or just go along to get along. Sorry folks, that's not me!!
I make a conscious effort to support environments giving everyone the opportunity to make the best choice for all concerned.
I was brought up in a home filled with love and encouragement -- including planting and caring for the seeds which prepared me to find my own voice in this world through reinforcing my independence.
There were never loud angry voices in our home. The kind of sounds I remember most from my childhood are the happy sounds of my mother, grandmother and father all cooking together in our kitchen.
John Lennon said, "Life is what happens while you're planning
to do something else."
Understanding that "heart-quality" trumps mental acuity at every turn is a few degrees nearer to the center.
If you have an appreciation for Sun Tzu, Rumi, Kundalini yoga, The Dalai Lama, Meher Baba, Baba Ram Dass, The Fourth Way, Alan Watts, Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn or other alternative "old school" means of honing our awareness and clarity would get bonus points -- providing you aren't on a mission to convert anyone to anything.
And then if that person has a playful sense of humor, compassion for humanity's predicaments, and be reasonably pleasant to look at.... I suppose that might be Nirvana.
