I'm geeky, and I get along really well with people who are geeky as well. Renaissance re-enactors especially well. I'm fascinated by a wide variety of things, and will throw myself into something for about a year, then find something else to throw myself into. There are so many things to learn! A few constants throughout my life, however, include writing (poetry, fiction, occasionally memoir) and music (I'm working on getting back to decent skills on folk harp and viola.) I also always have a novel in my purse so I have something to read at will. On occasion it's something heavier, like self-help, or a classic.
If you're looking for a typical woman who loves shopping, buys a lot of shoes, has multiple purses and loves bling, I'm not a good match for you. I'm a minimalist, which means every item I own should have a truly needful purpose, and I work to have as few as possible. At least that's my goal; I have a ways to go yet. I'm also a frugalist, preferring inexpensive things, and finally a resourcer, very much preferring to find uses for things that would otherwise be thrown away, or find ways to use what can be found freely to do things one might buy another object for; for example, building furniture with bamboo instead of with PVC pipe.
If money and time were no object, I would love to to build a treehouse resort off grid homestead retreat education center for preppers and ecotourism with some alternative buildings and low-impact demo small-scale permaculture farming as well as zip lines and ropes course in the Willamette Valley. I would love to be part of an intentional community.
I value amusement to the point of seeming silly. I'm probably the most intelligent airhead you'll ever meet. I'm a devout Christian/Pagan/Zen Buddhist spiritual agnostic.
If your idea of polyamory is multiple monogamous relationships, I find monogamy preferable.
After a 30-year battle with depression, I have reconfigured my attitude so that I can be happy EVERY day. My past has left me with a BBW body, and I really want to atl east get fit enough to go hiking in these gorgeous woods and mountains. I like to get out for camping and fishing.
TV - Discovery channel primarily. Also entertaining ancient aliens stuff, animal documentaries, "Oddities".
Movies - Pirates of the Caribbean, Lord of the Rings, What the Bleep, anything funny, independent films.
Music - Celtic, 80s & 90s pop, spiritual & new age (Linda Webb-Khakaba, Melissa Phillippe, Michael Gott, Enya, Jean Michel Jarre, Andreas Vollenweider). And performing music is important to me; primarily Scottish and renaissance harp. I enjoy anachronism such as Metallica on the harp. And music, like sex, is more fun when you do it with someone else.
Foods - Thai, Italian, grilled anything.
Note to OKCupid; How about adding a Bucket List section?
You see an avocado and think, "six point oh two times ten to the twenty-third."
You play the cello. Especially if you've been thinking about harp accompaniment.
You want to go fishing.
You do hobby taxidermy and want to teach someone.
You`re a mystic, and want to meet another.
You think you might be interested in me, a couple of acres by the shore of a nearby lake and/or off-grid living.
If you have a clear picture of yourself in our profile, and you don't say, "ask me" as an answer to a question. I'm the listening type, not the asking type. If you're keeping sex a secret or think you need to go to confessional, you probably shouldn't be doing it. In other words, if you act like it's your "dirty little secret", I'm not interested in you at all. I just can't see having a relationship with someone who doesn't have what I consider a mature attitude about being an adult.
