My self-summary
Think of me as a lover of nature. I garden, fish, hunt, gather and as a master naturalist spend as much time outside as I can. Highly educated, both formally and through a lifetime of reading and experience, I try to live my life according to what I've learned. My interests are multifaceted. I practice tai-chi, dance zumba, hike, bicycle, kayak and spend much time with my hands in the dirt or trying to ID the latest plant or critter to cross my path.

I am very liberal and socially and politically active. Life has been incredibly generous to me and I hope to give back at least a little to make up for what I have gained.

Please do not message me if you are a conservative, into organized religion, a tea-bagger or think that human influence on climate change is a vast liberal conspiracy. We will not get along and I don't want to waste my time or yours. And I'm not interested in a one-night-stand. Just being honest.

And PLEASE, write in complete sentences so I know you have at least some education, half a brain and are willing to take the time to communicate.

I am a partner in a 35 year long-term relationship with slidingportals. We are a committed couple, deeply in love. We share most activities and social values, one of them being the belief that sometimes there are other persons who can give each one or even both of us something that we can't give each other. We are polyamorous.
What I’m doing with my life
After spending many years living in various places throughout the country, we have settled on the Eastern Shore. I am a health professional and have also shared numerous careers with my lifetime partner including but not limited to artists, prospectors, writers, teachers and entrepreneurs in a number of ventures. We still dabble in some of the above.

We now lead a subsistence lifestyle as much as is possible in the 21st century: hunt, fish, garden, orchard and collect wild plants and mushrooms. As advocates of permaculture we attempt to grow our food in an adaptable and sustainable way that improves the surrounding environment not only for ourselves but the wildlife that is a part of it. We are locavores promoting the growing and consumption of local food.We write books and articles on subsistence living.

My latest passions as a naturalist have been promoting native plants and being an ambassador for reptiles and amphibians: promoting increased understanding and advocating for their importance in our environment.

As mentioned above, I volunteer for several social and political causes.
I’m really good at
Trying new things, attempting new adventures and getting involved.
I enjoy working with my hands including art, a variety of crafts and building projects such as cabins with my partner.

My partner and I have been good at almost everything we ever tried. We often take on new projects with which we had no previous experience. I also like to think we have learned from some of our failures and have never regretted any new ventures.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am usually quiet at a first meeting but am independent and assertive.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: sci-fi, nature, ecology, politics, mystery. Music: folk, classical, some new age, latin, local artists. Food: we love to explore new tastes when we go out. Ethnic foods are favorites. At home we eat what we grow, pick, catch or shoot.
The six things I could never do without
More than Six: Each other, The Earth, loving, sex, our fishing rods, hunting guns, shovels, hoes, Tai Chi, books, our dog and computer. And dancing in general and Zumba in particular. Many more.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Our personal and global environment, politics and how to bring about change. How to improve our garden, our fishing our hunting. Where to go on another adventure or hike. Sex and relationships.
On a typical Friday night I am
Never typical. Sometimes sipping a nice glass of wine, eating a fine cheese and having a spirited discussion.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
It's private
You should message me if
If you like nature, enjoy outdoors activities, are politically liberal, don't participate in organized religion and do not smoke tobacco. If you think we share enough interests to develop a close relationship even though I have a life partner. Preferably, if you are interested in a friendship relationship with both of us. If you do message me, I would appreciate it if you would give me a few reasons as to why we might be compatible.

At a minimum, I will not date anyone separately that my partner doesn't also like and respect. In an ideal situation, we'd love to have long term loving relationships where everyone would be entirely comfortable and happy with all present at any given time.

If I message you, please choose civility and respond. A simple yes or no would do. Thanks!
