Look for beauty wherever I am, and especially love art, nature and writing. Spiritually fit, artistic, intelligent, attractive and mature. Hobbies include painting, reading, movies (not too much violence), art shows and museums, healthy organic food, occasional dancing.
Love to laugh, which I do often. Wake up smiling and find it easy to continue all day… I try to listen to the music of your heart singing beneath your words, and I love discovering what makes each person unique. Enjoy thinking outside the box, trusting people until they prove themselves untrustworthy, and have never met a stranger, since I believe that in Reality, We are All One. I'm a dreamer, a passionate participant and an interesting human.
I'm a Quaker, am interested in metaphysics, practice Open Heart Meditation, am involved with the 12 Steps and am a Meher Baba lover. I am politically liberal.
Enjoy doing things with a man; also enjoy just being in the presence of a Present man. Seeking someone wise enough to know what he does not understand and understands the infinite depth of not knowing. One who appreciates paradox.
I'm looking for a partner with whom I can grow spiritually. I believe that Spirit is everywhere present, and want to connect deeply with a kind hearted, spiritually curious, monogamous man. A good sense of humor and intelligence are very important to me; Spirit dances to the tune of shared laughter...
I believe that nearly all humans want to give and receive love. Would like to partner with a man who is interested in discovering the places within himself that resist connection, authenticity and love---and who wants a safe partnership space to heal those places. I am willing to be kind, supportive and to reciprocate in ongoing deep healing.
I eat a healthy, organic diet, am blood type O and find that prolonged vegetarianism doesn't work for me, so I eat humanely raised animal products. Cooking is a delightful art form, and even more fun when the kitchen is shared by two friendly hearts who are curious and committed to health and kindness...
Music: Prefer classical, folk, and classic rock. Don't understand jazz---guess I'm like some people who don't like modern art because they don't understand it. I recently read that while plants thrive while listening to Mozart, they die when exposed to rap and jazz. perhaps there is not a nurturing melodic component?
Love my two daughters and five grandchildren who all live in Chicago.
Am currently going deeper in studying and practicing Non-violent, Compassionate Communication. Listening, really listening with empathy and an open heart, is a skill that I value and practice. True intimacy comes from kindness, honesty and empathy. I am very interested in deep intimacy, the kind David Deida talks about in his books on human relationships and sexuality.
Any active addiction is a deal buster for me. Before exploring sexual intimacy, there would need to be deep friendship between us. If you are any kind of fundamentalist or are politically "conservative" as opposed to "liberal," we are not a good match. Also no active addictions, and and not 420 friendly...
Communicating---listening and sharing.
Smiling. Art. Writing. Appreciating nature. I'm kind.
Have a grateful, open heart, and am a loyal, trustworthy interesting friend.
Have been interested in energy healing and alternative medicine for a long time. I know quite a bit about these subjects, and am interested in learning more.
Am intelligent and have a good sense of humor--and appreciate the same in a man.
That I love to laugh, am kind and have many interests.
That spirituality, not religion, is the focus of my life.
My friends often tell me how courageous and kind I am.
I am not afraid to do deep inner work and feel growing pains...

I read the Hunger Games trilogy and found them riveting, disturbing and at one point, deeply and spiritually moving.
Read "Truth in Dating" and am interested in authentic, transparent, honest communication from the beginning. Interested? It's risky and has the potential to open the door to deep intimacy...
I always try to eat healthy, organic food. enjoy some raw food, and interesting vegetarian and fish dishes. Cannot eat hot, spicy food. I have quite a few food sensitivities and allergies, so I'm a bit "high maintenance" in the food arena.
Love good drama, comedies, non violent movies, especially true stories that are inspirational. Liked True Grit, The King's Speech, Something the Lord Has Made (true story of the first open heart surgery on a "blue baby"), Off the Map, Freida, films about Christo, Whale Rider, The Secret of Roan Innish, Big Fish, and especially The Fountain. When he lived here, I enjoyed going to "Waking Up to the Movies" as John Mark Stroud's home. Google him; you can download some amazing films with his deeply spiritual and revealing comments as the film progresses. John Mark is "awake" to the All One consciousness.
Like classical music, classical guitar and piano, oldies, Willie Nelson, not much into jazz, and don't enjoy rap or heavy metal. I love the sound of shared Silence, where hearts are singing, and there is a nearly audible duet between us...
I particularly enjoy live theatre, opera, ballet. I think that maybe Cirque de Soleil is the way of the REAL world. What a creative and inspirational experience... anything is possible if we expand our vision and dive deeply into what COULD be... if we dare to dream it.
friends and family

My life would not be as rich if I didn't have a computer and access to art supplies.
