I am dorky, gentle, quiet and observant. and strong.
i've always been more attracted to people's kind energy than their gender, orientation, prestige, possessions or looks. if i have a type it is for nerdy gentle naturophiles.
physical chemistry only happens for me when there is a comfortable emotional and intellectual chemistry (and sometimes not even then, but enjoy the other kinds of chemistry with gratefulness and joy)
i've recently retired and am enjoying some lifelong avocations (writing, making little art things, travel, enjoying nature and being curious about people).
i am often out walking local trails in a leisurely way, taking photos.
i've had a pretty time consuming cancer hobby the last five years (and don't mind questions about it). like all other humans, i am terminal. (just maybe sooner than later). this means i'm very focused on the joys of now, and am not looking for a traditional connection.
i don't need a caregiver or a rescuer. fortunately, i have a beautiful support system, and am taking good care of myself (nutrition, exercise, sleep). sometimes i have treatments to do (and a new hairdo). often my cancer is behaving, and i'm feeling all right, and can enjoy adventures.
even though i have this big thing going on in my life i am interested to learn about another's life, to celebrate their joys and care about their concerns. however, i am honestly not available for unnecessary drama in any form
noticing nature. realizing the utter strength and utter fragility of life.
listening to and eliciting your thoughts, day and night dreams, goals, worries, ideas, stories
seeing the loveliness of gender and orientation without a preconceived notion.
writing has been a lifelong pasttime for me. lately i've been expanding my creativity to other arts too
movies: a room with a view, ma vie en rose, antonia's line, emma, carwash, breakfast on pluto, together, biloxi blues, to kill a mockingbird, muriel's wedding, pride and prejudice
music: van morrison, marvin gaye, kd lang. t-rex. leonard cohen. the music made by young people i know.
at the same time i know asking others to connect with me deeply is a risk for their heart and mine.
my situation and being an introvert can sometimes make me a flaky friend. very present sometimes and then suddenly less available. i'm not good as someone's only or main friend or intimate. and i kind of hate talking on the phone. (email and text works much better). i also have a preference for people who live close by, so we can get to know one another, in person, at a slow pace.
you are comfortable talking about your feelings/fears of a possibly time limited connection.
you pledge allegiance to the world.
you are a gentle person who needs occasional solitude.
you like written words.
you are nature's bride or groom.
you are kind of romantic and kind of practical at the same time.
