My self-summary
"I am looking for someone to ski with, have dinner with, go on hikes with, ride bikes with, just have fun with. Someone who wouldn't mind when I sing while I'm driving. (I'm actually not bad at it....) Someone who wouldn't mind dancing in public places. (I'm actually quite bad at it....) Someone who loves to travel. Someone with a passport.

I will make you laugh 27 times a day.

I have lived many different types of lifestyles so far, in many different situations. I have spent a great deal of time figuring out who I am (not in the context of a relationship) and finally, after much examination, finally know what makes me happy. That's been quite a big thing to get figured out, and took a lot of work. I don't intend to let it lie as it is, and I question myself every day; meditating, thinking, and reading. I want to find someone who also lives an examined life, and is at peace with herself, or at least is on that path. I am very open and honest, and I look for the same in a partner.

Drop me a line and let's take a hike and learn things about each other. Let's go somewhere neither of has ever been, or have an adventure and try something totally new for both of us, if we can think of something that would fit that qualification....

A question: Have we who read online profiles become too selective in our basis for responding to another? Are we expecting somehow to find our "perfect" match right out of the box, rather than allowing ourselves to grow into a relationship? Do we keep revising our profiles, tweaking this and that in order to have that person who we think is our "one" respond and sweep us off into the sunset, or do we leave an opening for creative, caring people that might be wonderful for us?

Oscar Wide said," Life is too important to be taken seriously." Is your mind light? Are you open to fun and discovery with someone? Are you able to move beyond the mundane on a daily basis? Drop me a line and let's talk!
What I’m doing with my life
Finishing raising my children in the best way possible, making a successful living doing what I like, trying to make the world a little happier, friendlier, healthier.
For a living, I currently have a bakery using local ingredients whenever possible, and making some other food products. I used to raise natural grass fed beef, but that part is about over.
I ski, ride bicycles and motorcycles (not a Harley in the bunch, sorry.), hike, climb, have had to cut down on running for the past couple of years due to an ankle injury, and I love to travel. Even after a bad experience or two, I will still try almost any street food almost anywhere.... That's what puts the adventure in adventure travel.
I’m really good at
Fixing things, kissing, being able to pick out what is the root problem of a situation, lifting heavy things, cooking, growing things.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile, my sense of humor, my intelligence.

And I can go from Jeans to a Little Black Dress in a minute .......Oh wait, never mind. Maybe I have been reading a few too many of these profiles....
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Intriguing thrillers, comedic novels, books on Buddhist thought and teachings, Christopher Guest movies, romantic comedies, Coen brothers movies, old movie classics (just watched "An Affair to Remember"... I always cry at the end when Carey Grant finds out that Deborah Kerr is paralyzed- go ahead, take away my man card.) and things that make you think. Watching Midnight in Paris reminds me that every age is a "golden age" and we need to appreciate this moment. Best Exotic Marigold Hotel puts the vicissitudes of life into context. Authors: Kerouac, Sinclair Lewis, Christopher Moore, Faulkner, Capote, Tim Dorsey, Bukowski, Vonnegut, H S Thompson, Persig, Dorothy Parker, Tolkein, Moon, Tom Robbins, Hyman Kaplan, Thoreau, Hemingway, Thurber, Carl Hiaasen, Auster, Wodehouse, Pema Chodron, Anais Nin, many many more for books. Old samba jazz, Nina Simone, Kate Wolfe, Leonard Cohen, Billy Holiday, Bela Fleck, Flim and the BBs, Stan Getz, Miles Davis, Van Morrison, Procol Harem, Annie Lennox, Shawn Colvin, Michael Franks, Don Williams, Django Reinhardt, Larry Sparks, Bill Monroe, Peter Rowan, Sam Bush, miscellaneous baroque chamber music, Vivaldi, Bach, Gipsy Kings, Holly Cole, John Prine, late Johnny Cash ( the American album with the NIN stuff, et al.), Lou Reed, Norah Jones, Santana, Drepung Monks, Tom Waits, Sting, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Nick Drake, Seal, CSN, Melissa Etheridge, BB King, Deva Premal... Lots of stuff. I love the different programs on KUVO when I am in the Denver area.
Six things I could never do without
My children, compassion, animals, growing things, meditation, nature
I spend a lot of time thinking about
loving kindness
On a typical Friday night I am
There is no "typical" Friday night. I might be hanging out at home with my son, making dinner, just relaxing, maybe finding some music, going out and dancing some salsa or merengue, or maybe on OKCupid... (have mercy on me and help me with the objective of online dating: getting off of online dating)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I eat chips in bed, I have never seen the movie "Frozen," I am a sapiosexual..... and sometimes I sing to strangers in elevators.

and other than that, I have no "private" answers in my questionnaire.
You should message me if
You are confident, happy with who you are, you are active, you live in the present moment, and believe that having fun is just as important as working. If you're one of the many women who are taller than I happen to be, I really don't care. Put on your heels, let's go dancing and have fun.

Oh, and if you believe that a woman doesn't have to wait for some stupid man to initiate a conversation....
The two of us
