I have come on down to the pond for a few years now, to have some fun, and exchange ideas about Art, Creativity, Life, and love, and have come away with a few incredibly great friends, but one can never have too many friends, so, . . . .
I am a early middle-aged (yeah, right) Bohemian (really!) artist (fat, old hippie dude), designer, and dreamer, trying to make the best of my short journey on this Third Rock from the Sun.
I have a generally happy disposition, blended (hopefully in your eyes) with just enough sarcasim to flavor most situations. I am also creative, young at heart, spiritual, and positive, with a slightly off kilter sense of humor & style. I have been told that I have a thirst for knowledge, a heart for romance, an eye for beauty and art and a fairly open mind.
I am especially interested in Native American art, crafts, culture, and spirituality, and have always been drawn to nature (the woods) and touching the Earth. Photography is one of the ways I express myself, as well as art. I am looking for a special friend, confidant, accomplice, lover, kindred spirit, and possibly soulmate, to help me pass the time while waiting for paint to dry.. . . .exchange of art and ideas. . . .and the senses.
. . . .Recently back to Mich from three years in NC, where I did custom paint work for a few of the NASCAR drivers on their toys, ie. motorcycles, offshore race boats, street rods, and recreation trailers. I love designing and painting show and race vehicles, murals, and designing 'out of the ordinary' graphics. Art IS my life.
"If it packs a wallop!, . .it's ART. If it don't, . . it ain't!"
Most of the time, I tend to think with my heart, and have a passion for nature, music (sorry, can't do Country or rap), life, and love. I try to be 'down to Earth' while keeping one foot planted firmly in the air!
I try to enjoy life to it's fullest through the beauty of nature, music, art, and special friends. My Zest for life provides me pleasure out of most of the things that I do, a quality I've learned directly from my late father's up beat personality.
I believe that "Most of the shadows of this life are caused by standing in our own sunshine." (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
Every once in a great while, if you are lucky, someone touches your life in a way that is so familar, comfortable, and inspiring that you want to learn everything about them, and share the ups and downs of life, as well as discovering each other. I hope you all have the good fortune, to find someone you have always dreamed about and get to spend time walking thru this life, discovering and enjoying what dreams may come your way.
~Peace, Love, Blessings & Balance~
P.S. . . .what am I looking for? . . .
A friend gave me some advice once . . .she said, . . . . women are all CRAZY, the key is finding one of us that's LOW on the crazy scale.
Maybe some women aren't meant to be tamed. Maybe they need to run free until they find someone just as wild to run with them. ~from Running with the Wolves~
"The most wonderful of all things in life, is the discovery of another human being with whom one's relationship has a glowing depth, beauty, and joy as the years increase. This inner progressiveness of love between two human beings is a most marvelous thing, it cannot be found by looking for it, or by passionately wishing for it... It is a sort of divine accident."
~Sr Hugh Walpoe~
H O W E V E R . . . . . .
"It is wrong to think that love comes from long companionship and persevering courtship. Love is the offspring of spiritual affinity and unless that affinity is created in a moment, it will not be created for years or even generations."
Is it any wonder we're sometimes confused? . . . .
Must insist you have a picture, after all, why wouldn't you? It's much easier seeing who you're talking to, isn't it?
You wouldn't walk into a 'mixer' with a paper bag over your head and expect people to be drawn to you, would you?
