My self-summary
Okay. I've been here awhile and it's not been producing what I want. I get real uncomfortable writing these things because I don't care too much for advertising overall, especially this. Advertising is dishonest, IMO. Trying to show upsides, hiding the downsides. And I got a flaw of honesty. Seriously. I am a gentle person in, many ways, but sometimes I am harsh with honesty.

So here's the most honest thing I can say right now. I got a busy life. Too busy to share it and give it up. What I would like, for now, is someone who wants to do something for fun. But I don't have money. I thought I'd wait until I have money to be fair, but that's just getting me older faster. I really have lots to give in other ways.
But given those conditions, it brings up the rift raft. People have different ideas. The trusted woman is the one who will toe the line and want a long term relationship devoted to a man. Decent men don't want just a partial relationship, so goes normal thinking. Here's the thing. I don't do stranger sex; that is, sex with a stranger. So I'm asking something the disrupts normal procedures of opposite sex initial meetings. I've thought it through. What we've inherited deserves disruptions. That's my dose of straight up honesty for now. Next is my lame attempt at selling myself. But realize that any few paragraphs will never cover who I am. Ask questions.

I'm an adventurous, unconventional, creative artist of life.
My loves are nature, music and travel. I spend time working with visual images (painting, drawing, photography, computer), writing, enjoying nature, gardening, creative cooking, reading lots of books - intellectual and emotional work, expanding consciousness and ways of being, exploring conscious and honoring sexuality, gardening, dancing and enjoying music. I am open minded and love learning and exploring life and the depth of souls and boundaries of being. I live by environmental principles in all areas of my life as I can. I care a great deal about people and the planet and live within the alternative healthy choices. I find the boxes limiting and the questions/answers inadequate in given accurate descriptions. There are too many underlying assumptions that go into the questions that do not fit or facilitate my answers, but I am trying this anyway.

I am creative, intelligent, and caring.
What I’m doing with my life
I am living my life as a creative journey. I enjoy seeing and doing new things always. I spent a large portion of my life caring for the needs of others and then doing creative research and creative artistic projects. I've found the answers I was looking for, now I'm ready to have some fun. I've been involved in personal, social activism and have developed ideas about visual culture and cultural environmentalism. I spend lots of time on the issues of violence prevention which is also just healthy, environmentally based and higher quality relationships. I've lived on a farm most of my life and sometimes live a Thoreau kind of existence. I'd like to travel...and share my art.
I’m really good at
(need to ponder this more) It's the word 'really' that throws me. Not sure how to 'grade' myself on all the activities I do. What I do know is that I got 'outstanding' and 'excellence' comments with my painting, photography. I think I do fairly well on all kinds of things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I do not know what people notice about me. Depending on the situation, I'm a bit shy at first. I just need time to warm up sometimes. I've been told I look young for my age frequently. I've also been told I'm 'different' and unusual.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love reading and so I like a variety of books too endless to mention, plus I like different things at different times, so my answer might change as I lean toward one thing or another. My latest phase of reading has been on books that break up the mythological, dominant ideas we are living in as a society. For example, Making Sex by Thomas Laqueur which gives an historical account and puts the opposite sex theory into place.

For movies, I like comedies. I'll watch all kinds of movies too, but lots of violence, and blood and car chases get real boring, really! It takes an inactive mind to watch the same scenario over and over again.

For music, my favorite is classic rock; the stuff I grew up on. But again, I can listen to just about anything. Beatles, Supertramp, old Kansas, and Moody Blues have to be my all time classic favorites. I listen to things depending on what mood I'm in. Heavy metal to new age instrumental. I prefer live music to recorded music and so I've spent a good amount of time listening to the unknowns; local musicians that are very good.

As for food, I was raised on Pa German recipes, but I've enjoyed all kinds of ethnic foods. I tend to eat healthy but my favorite junk type foods are pizza and ice cream. I like seafood anytime and I don't like spicy foods very much.
The six things I could never do without
I read a quote that said you are as rich as the things you can live without. I think I can live without just about anything. Janis Joplin said, Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose, and I've made some leaps towards freedoms in my life. Right now I'm wanting some comforts.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
many things. Talk to me and find out what they are.
On a typical Friday night I am
usually home relaxing, watching a movie or involved with my creative work or listening to some local music and dancing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
nope. I like some privacy, thank you.
You should message me if
you are open minded and looking to really enjoy a creative mind and spirit. It takes a while to know me and understand because I've been on my creative path for many years now. I've found the road less traveled definitely isn't paved but it is absolutely better than the beaten path.
