About Me
On the surface, I'm just an outdoorsy, country-bred gal, yet I've traveled & learned & become a bit cultured over the years; uncomplicated yet complex... I approach life with irreverent reverence & take responsibility for my happiness despite what's going on around me. My mood, feelings, beliefs & actions don’t depend on what others do, think or say. In any moment I seek joy, ecstasy, gratitude, intimacy, abundance, excitement, creativity, peace . . . all pointing to the only real feeling: love. Yet I so desire to share these feelings with another, becoming dear friends first & building a relationship from there.

I desire for my beloved to realize his wildest dreams, fostered by 'allowing' him total freedom of choice in every moment . . . of course the same must be true of him for me. Relationships are held together by laws of attraction, not by obligations - marital or otherwise - or by control, which squeezes the life out of a person & eventually squeezes that person right out of your life. Relationship holds opportunities to love deeply & unconditionally, without restraint, with generosity of spirit & compassion for human 'beingness’; to fully know oneself in the intimate presence of another. I seek compatibility & a good 'soul fit' based on mutual attraction & admiration, interdependence v. dependence, a meeting of minds, a sacred dance of two souls.

Still, I don’t hold unrealistic expectations. I’m simply a woman desiring to know a man who, like me, is passionately engaged in life & chooses to remain wisely innocent despite the challenges we face in this illusory world; who is open-minded in allowing the possibility there may be something we don’t know, the knowing of which would change everything. Words may be the least reliable form of communication, yet if you’ve persevered to read this far you’ll know if I may be the woman for you. Despite all this serious stuff . . . bet I’ll have you smiling within 15 seconds of the first hello ;-)!

Peace.

First Date
Well, it might include a place of natural beauty and the holy trinity: crusty bread, fine wine, aged cheese.

Later on a perfect date might last for days, snowed in at a mountain cabin, chopping wood for a roaring fire, something savory cooking on the stone hearth, snuggling in to wait out the storm . . . hmmmmm . . . of course you smell good and are a great kisser ;-)!

I am your lover, come to my side,
I will open the gate to your love.
Come settle with me, let us be neighbors to the stars.
You have been hiding so long, endlessly drifting in the sea of my love.
Even so, you have always been connected to me.
Concealed, revealed, in the unknown, in the un-manifest.
I am life itself. You have been a prisoner of a little pond,
I am the ocean and its turbulent flood.
Come merge with me, leave this world of ignorance.
Be with me, I will open the gate to your love.
-- Rumi

Some favorite quotations:
=> Emancipate yourself from mental slavery; none but ourselves can free our minds. -Bob Marley
=> For an average man, the world is weird because if he's not bored with it, he's at odds with it. For a warrior, the world is weird because it is stupendous, awesome, mysterious, unfathomable. A warrior must assume responsibility for being here, in this marvelous world, in this marvelous time. -don Juan Matus
=> A soulmate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, & keys to fit our locks. When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out & we can be completely & honestly who we are; we can be loved for who we are & not for who we're pretending to be. Each unveils the best part of the other. Our soulmate is one who makes life come to life. -Richard Bach
=> If you attempt intimacy with another person before you have done the hard work of becoming whole yourself, all relationships become an attempt to complete yourself. -Leslie Perrot

=> Now let us play hide and seek. Should you hide in my heart it would not be difficult to find you. But should you hide behind your own shell, then it would be useless for anyone to seek you. -Kahlil Gibran
=> There are only two ways to live your life . . . as though nothing is a miracle . . . as though everything is a miracle. -Einstein
