My self-summary
The poet Hafiz says, "Love sometimes wants to do us a great favor, hold us upside down and shake all the nonsense out". Loved ones would describe me as: sensitive, honest, funny, warm, intelligent, compassionate, creative, empathic, without guile, magical, intense, easy going, passionate & soulful. I have taken the road less traveled for the last 20 plus years of my life. A path of heart, body, mind, and soul inquiry to continually gain awareness, embodiment, and stay present to life.

A bit of a paradox as I embody both salt of the earth/homebody and freedom loving/traveling soul. Translation: I love to travel, and stay open to growing, exploring new experiences with you and I'm happy and content to be home with you cooking up a yummy meal. I'm seeking my life partner who wants to continue growing together, yet also share hot monogamy. Nature is my healer, especially the ocean. This is very much a part of my lifestyle, staying close to nature.

My ideal would be a partner who also knows the balance of intimacy and solitude, that is knowing the subtle difference between being alone and being lonely.

I value honesty, transparency, depth, and loving kindness. In partnership I seek an inner resonance based upon depth, pure love, and growing ever deeper together. To live our aliveness and passion every day as well as our tenderness. To share a life based on shared values of joy, beauty, mutual respect, daily laugher, creativity and sharing our gifts with others. To have the willingness to work our edges with compassion, communication and love. We all come with wounds from our childhood, the vital ingredient is if we can be "aloe vera" (a soothing balm) instead of "salt" to one another's wounding. A line from an old Carlos Santana song sums it up nicely, "give me your heart, make it real or else forget about it".

P.S. If you have read this far, there are aspects of this "on line" procedure that for a woman can feel intrusive, thus the picture I've selected as I don't want my likeness displayed for just anyone. I'm happy to send more photos once we connect.
For the record, my eyes are sometimes blue, sometimes green---my mom has one of each. My hair is dark blonde and in a braid in this picture.
What I’m doing with my life
Living it with as much awareness, wonder, passion, joy, laughter, innocence, beauty, balance, creativity, heart and soul I can muster in any given moment.

And attempting to finish this profile!

I'm self employed and work deeply with others. You need to be the type of man who is contained within himself and can trust and hold space for a powerful (true power from the heart--not false from ego) woman with deep intuitive gifts, transparency and who continues to grow. I also travel a lot---you can join me or you can celebrate me, but you must understand this part of my Soul.

And as Rilke wrote: "I want to unfold. Let no place in me hold itself closed. For where I'am closed, I'am false. I want to stay clear in your sight".
I’m really good at
Living from my heart...
Trusting my intuition...
Seeing the beauty/depth/joy/paradox in life...
Helping others do the same...
The first things people usually notice about me
That would entirely depend upon the person and their focus in life now wouldn't it? Usually it's the color of my eyes or my effervescent energy or so I've been told.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
David Whyte, & Rilke are some of my fave poets.
On my nightstand currently is: A book about Jesus & his disciples, Seeds of Awareness by Bob Pedersen & several books by the mystical desert fathers.
Music: Way too many to list, love all of it (save heavy metal/rap/techno).
American Movies I've enjoyed: Ladyhawke, Chocolat, Dangerous Beauty, Practical Magic, Little Miss Sunshine, The Illusionist (with Ed Norton not the recent animation one with same name), Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Somewhere in Time, Powder, The Mission, The Last of the Mohicans, The Last Samurai, Dances with Wolves, The Green Mile.

What I've noticed the last 20 years with friends is that with a deep essence connection these favorite things just seem to flow naturally and easily...as if an inner harmony already in place simply moves us toward both wanting Thai food or Indian, or a foreign film, etc...it's a fun discovery and a vibrant way to live life...
Six things I could never do without
Feeling Grace and my connection to God...
Love in all it's myriad of forms...family, friends, animals.
Sustainable planet which provides a beautiful ocean, trees, abundant organic food, clean air, etc...
My beloved once I find him...
Dancing, swimming, hiking, loving, meditating, cooking & baking all count as one don't they?
Seeing the profound preciousness/beauty in life...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Is it possible to find a needle in a haystack?
And what would it be like to live in extended community and we share some land in which we are growing our own food, have a center gathering space, and are giving back in a myriad of ways with creative projects, retreats, service, joy....perhaps building a small hospice for conscious dying?
And lately....how do we as a species wake up to what we are doing in regards to our planet...(war, oil, gmo food, economy, tsunami) and how do we keep our hearts open & responsive despite all the incredible suffering that seems to be happening now?
On a typical Friday night I am
My life is not typical...
You should message me if
You have a pure heart, are looking for your life partner, have no addictions, are healthy on all levels, are happy with your life, and embody a deeply masculine essence. Also, you enjoy & celebrate your partner being in her deeply feminine essence. (Refer to David Dieda's books to further understand masculine/feminine essence the way I'm using it here). You've read this profile and feel a stirring in your heart. You love to laugh and see the beauty in life each day. You can sustain deep intimacy and have been looking for a partner to not only meet you there but to continue growing together. You have learned, as I, to plant flowers not weeds in the "cracks of your heart" through out this life journey. You are deeply honest, emotionally available, and have an awesome sense of humor and old fashinoned manners as well! And you want to be of service to others on this planet, you have a desire to grow ever deeper into doing the Father's Will while you abide here on earth.
The two of us
