My self-summary
If a person could be truly objective and of course we can't, I would say that physically, not bad for my age. By that I mean that I try to take care of my appearance although I am far past that "pinch my cheeks and go" phase. Being brutally honest here, I seem to have replaced work, the love of people, my dog and good food with the little empty places that only the love for a man can fill. One of these things shows by about 12 lbs. Since summer has finally shown and the reality that it's time to shed a layer of clothing has hit home I am focused on losing that. That being said please know that I am not needy or desperate. I am a strong and happy person who tries to not confound others with untruths.
What's inside? The spirit of the woods, the sea and all that is beautiful in the natural world. It comes back out in the form of drawings, sculpture and other things I refer to as art.
Aspire to be a charming conversationalist when I grow up but can't quite get into the martini bar thing. A gin and tonic on a summer night full of stars by the campfire is just about perfect. Am fascinated by wild edibles, medicinals and think I could do a few months in the woods providing the bear keep their distance while I am in their back yard.
Was a floral designer for much of my proffesional life and am now an Innkeeper. Am socially conscious and involved with helping people in tough times especially young ones when I can.
Prefer the company of a small group of excellent friends to a throng of strangers but am not a shut in by any means.
Love junk shops, yard sales and Craigslist. A great find always thrills me and creating wonderful spaces with this stuff is another art form I enjoy.
That's enough for now I think.

I am curious, happy, and grateful

Six things I could never do without
My family
the forest
the ocean breeze
the prarie lands
real love
the senses by which I enjoy these things that I too often take for granted
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Today I wonder about the amazing feat of choosing a mate or a partner in a place like this. Not that eye contact tells another everything but being in the presence of another sets a mysterious power into motion that we call a 6th sense. Of course it can be charmed into giving either or both parties false readings but as far as our evolution has taken us it is our only defense against those that choose to use us as toys in one way or another. And yet we persevere. We reach for love.
As far as we know we may be telling the absolute truth about who we are and yet this information moves between us after seeping through baffles of past experience and can not be objective.

Think about this with me.
On a typical Friday night I am
My Friday nights are rarely on a Friday but I hopefully will be doing whatever my heart, mind or body needs in my free time. It is often drawing or reading or gardening. These things are great decompressors for me. I might choose to go prowling around second hand shops or a gallery more for ideas than content. I tend to see things like a photographer sees things I think. Always framing a set of visuals that please my sense of balance.
There are times when I want nothing at all around me except perhaps the company of a person dear to my heart. I love to experience the creator's hand in the grandest or the most miniscule of things. Now THAT is art.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Just discovered that I am a DGLD for those who care.
The two of us
