My self-summary
My friends describe me as independent and nurturing, adventurous and creative, kind and balanced. I love water, warmth and sunshine. Bright days and socked in rainy ones. Also: a good story, espresso in the morning, growing my own food, building a fire, red wine by the ocean, sleeping outside, cycling to get places, picking berries, snow storms and washing dishes by hand.
I'm interested in people who are both interesting and interested. People who care for themselves and others.
What I’m doing with my life
Remembering to surface, endeavouring to dive.
I’m really good at
Creative problem solving, keeping a positive and humourous outlook on life, being spontaneous and grounded, cooking delicious food, building a fire, Scrabble, multi-tasking, flexibility, long distance skiing, swimming, walking
The first things people usually notice about me
Curly hair, blue eyes, smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love fiction and am guilty of reading many books at once. I love the magical realism of Haruki Murakami as well as contemporary Canadian authors like Michael Ondaatje. I love what Thomas King says about stories: "The truth about stories is that that's all we are."
Six things I could never do without
-Red wine and spicy tuna rolls
-Books and bikes
-A device that takes photos and connects to the internet
-Good coffee
-Fresh food like kale and tomatoes and basil
I spend a lot of time thinking about
These days: technology and what it means to be human, 5 year old art and wisdom (I teach kindergarten), what I'll put into my smoothie tomorrow. Often: thinking about not thinking - challenging.
On a typical Friday night I am
Not usually typical but a glass of wine with a good friend or book on the beach is always enjoyable.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You should message me if
...want to commit to a deep and connected relationship - if the chemistry is there, of course
...are open-minded, curious, caring, creative and kind
...you are interested and interesting
...are funny, find humour and beauty in life, you aren't a victim to your circumstances
...your general outlook on life is positive and yet you know and accept the ups and downs that are life
The two of us
