FWIW, I understand the reluctance to talk on the phone right off, but if your idea of communicating is one sentence emails back and forth, we will most likely not be a good match. It takes communication to get to know someone, txt like emails aren't going to cut it.
I'm artistic and creative. I currently own Renaissance Fine Framing (15+ years). I've done everything from stone carving to woodworking to framing. I can fix damn near anything. I love gear head stuff, cars and bikes. I have been a musician most of my life, I play bass, and guitar and drums (but not so well).
I've done everything from Fire Fighter / Paramedic to Chimney Sweep. Sold cars and trucks, musical instruments and solar and wood heating equipment. I love learning for learning's sake and seem to know a little about just about everything, which can be a little handy and sometimes annoying ;-)
Most who meet me would swear I'm early 40's and over the phone my 30's. Go figure?
I love nature and like to be outside except in the severe heat 90+. A walker more than a hiker.
Spirituality is the foundation of who I am, but we can talk more about that if we communicate.
Giving some thought to where I might want to live if I left NM or the US.
Vilcabamba Ecuador, looks like heaven 55-88 degrees year round and moist enough to grow anything with out being soggy and tropical. It looks like a green New Mexico. I guess I should learn some Spanish first huh ;-)
I would not claim this just by myself, but I've been told I'm the best Framer around Albq. I have a different set of values and ethics. And to me it's done right when it can't be done any better. That might have something to do with it. But I put my heart and soul into it. After it's said and done I let my work speak for itself.
Understanding the concept of communication. That it entails not only talking (or writing) but listening ;-)
Movies: Just about anything, but not to into overly gory horror, seen it first hand, don't need it for entertainment.
Music: Open to almost anything except for Rap, hip hop, and whinny country. I really still dig. 65 thru 75 hard rock.
I'll pass on the required, Air, Water, Food, Shelter.....
Nash now ;-)
Learning cool new stuff.
Adventure, doing cool new stuff.
Motorcycling (haven't done much since I got Nash, my dog) If you're into it. Nothing beats our wide open spaces and mountains like seeing it on a bike, not through a windshield.
Exploring 4x4 stuff trails forest roads, places the bikes can't get to.
Music, playing and listening.
Exciting new foods.
But I'm open to going out if there is something to do. Well, someone to do something with.
Ideally I would like to find someone who is artistic / creative / musical that would like to share the home, workshop, and life I've created here in Corrales.
I think at this point, I would prefer someone who doesn't drink regularly 2-3 beers or more a night, do drugs and doesn't smoke. Bad experience last time.
