Down to earth. Not materialistic. Low maintenance. No drama and avoids dramatic people. Thinks outside the box. Passion for nature, dogs, travel, and music. Fitness and health conscious for life. Cheerleader for Mother Earth :) Would love to live out West, or somewhere it is warm with big mountains close by. I reside in Maryland to help care for the Mom for the time being. No worries .... She doesn't live with me.
I am a very giving person and love to pay it forward. I have been volunteering with a program called the Box of Rain for several years . We work with kids in Annapolis area that have a challenging home life. If I could quite my job and volunteer for things I am passionate about that would be sweet ( kids, homeless, animals, special olympics ).
Tend to avoid TV as I am disgusted at our society watching violence for entertainment, and the commercials just bore me to tears. Movies I tend to enjoy are the ones that are based on a true story and shows how the human spirit can overcome anything with passion .
Thinking in Pictures about Temple Grandin. Gifted Hands about Ben Carson. Apollo 13 . 127 Hours . Into the Wild. Those are a few of my favorites.
I am a peacemaker, or at least I do what I can to try to be. I am not perfect and try to keep the ego in check with some meditation . My favorite place to stop and breath is on a quiet trail while listening to a river running over rocks.
In search of a gentle man who enjoys being spontaneous and is a kid at heart. Layed back, but not a couch potato. Caring man and giving to others. Responsible for their actions whether good or bad. Sense of humor is a must as we have to laugh at each other in this crazy world. Living simple and enjoying the free pleasures in life, such as watching a spider spin it's intricate web. Must love animals and at very least appreciate music if not love exploring all the genres that are out there ( from bluegrass to world ) . If you don't like dogs then I am positive we would never work out.
Their is a spectrum of folks on this POF. I must mention that if you smoke cigs, are a racist, materialistic, have selfies of you chest down, have a confederate flag in your house, and/or can't run a mile without crushing chest pain then we will not be a good match for friendship. Sorry if that sounds callous. And If you had to look up the word callous then possibly we would not work out either ;)
I don't mind being a single woman as I am comfortable in my own shoes. I don't need a mate, however it would be nice to find one to share the same interest and experiences. Someone to share this beautiful world and often very ugly world. That's all. Friends first and let's see if we can grow and compliment each other. I also have to mention that unfortunately due time I am only interested in meeting folks in the near-by area.
Plus I hate the interstate.
All the best in you search. Be kind to each other.

and break clear away, once in awhile,
and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean. "

Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Something fun and layed back. If it involves dogs then that is great because then if the date doesn't work out at least I got the dogs walked :)
I like walking on a trail. Playing a game of tennis. Pint of ale or cup of java at one of our many local establishments.
I am up for anything different and turned on by creative and unique ideas.
