I am interested in learning more about green practices, sustainability, natural living, cooperatives, machinery, engines, electricity, solar energy, ideology....
I am a musician -- have played clarinet for as long as I can remember, dabbled in many things, most recently Celtic (yes, I know, not the most traditional of instruments for that genre. Shock) -- love to sing -- along to the radio, karaoke, with others....music truly is the universal language.
I am interested in meaningful conversations with others -- to expand my point of view, to share my experiences, to move forward in my quest for greater knowledge
In the spirit of full disclosure, you should know I'm poly and have a HUSBAND. However, if you know what poly means, none of you are excluded by this fact - from friendship, romance and everything in between! I'm fascinated by the many ways to be poly; I like the aspects of openness, honesty and courage in those you're involved with. That being said, if you're curious or especially have been doing it for a long time (successfully!), I want to talk to you! Don't be shy!
Michiganwriter and I are still very committed to and interested in the poly lifestyle. We would both like to expand our 'family' - to meet like-minded others with whom we can explore spirituality, sensuality and an unbridled enthusiasm for life. If any of what I have written above and below grabs you, please do write and say hi! I promise to respond.
In my life I have traveled more than some; I very much enjoy the thrill of a new adventure. That being said, meeting someone new, who widens one's perspective or shines new light on the current reality, can have just as transformative an effect as a trip to the Amazon or two weeks backpacking through Europe. I have a somewhat restless soul and I'm always looking to be transported. Whether this is a mind shift or getting off a plane in Iceland - I crave the rush of the unknown and unexpected. That being said, I have not been to Iceland. However I HAVE traveled to Germany/Austria/Switzerland (with my 10th grade German class), Australia (as an exchange student w/ AFS), spent a semester in Ireland at the University of Limerick and also worked at the USS Arizona Memorial in Hawaii. A good start, but I am by no means finished!
NIN, Sarah McLachlan, Sheila Chandra, George Winston, Joss Stone, Daftpunk, Massive Attack, Dave Matthews, Drop Kick Murphys, Altan, Slayer, Supertramp, Donovan, Nick Cave, Swell Season, Delhi2Dublin, Joel Mabus, Josh Turner, Steppin In It, The Ragbirds, Julia Nunes, Metallica, to touch on my eclectic tastes. If it's done well, I'll probably enjoy it.
sushi, Thai, vegetarian, Italian, Chinese..... I'll pretty much try anything once!!
Just as I like well-crafted music, so too as it relates to writing. Currently reading 'Thd Silent Lure' - a murder mystery/thriller - I will have to get an official list of good books going, but for now it's all about entertainment. Mine.
-time spent outside
-people who challenge me
-water - ocean, lake, stream
One other note - in case this has escaped your notice - I'm happily coupled but still very much POLY. If you put in the time and do the work, there IS someone there for you. I'm quietly hopeful and boundlessly excited; in the spirit of full disclosure I feel I should be honest. I am interested in talking to everyone - that being said, I am not exclusive. If you're willing to be fully open and share me, the sky is the limit. Please don't be bashful - if you feel compelled, by all means, say hello!!
