About Me
~Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass... It's about learning to dance in the rain. Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly... Leave the rest to God~

I need to rewrite this whole thing. I've been coming back to add things and modify this a lot lately.

Sense of humor is not only incredibly appreciated but required ;) Laughter is healing to the soul and creates beautiful energy. I love witty banter but I don't take kindly to humor that is overly negative or full of put downs.

Finally relocated to Oregon, near Albany (south of Salem, north of Eugene), from the Bay Area, California (north San Jose area). Surprisingly, I am in process of moving to Portland the end of September 2017.

South Bay Area, CA native but have lived other places. I'm 41 and a real, spunky, quick witted, self aware, multi-faceted, spiritual, compassionate, thoughtful, empathetic, funny, expressive, opinionated, passionate, intelligent, practical optimist. Kind of a spiritual hippie type but also kind of a nerd. I vacillate between being extroverted and introverted and am in the middle of every type on Myers-Briggs. I can be just as silly, goofy and light-hearted as I can be serious. Love music tremendously and nearly every type (music from every decade+) but not really into Rap, Hip-hop, angry or hardcore/harsh music like metal or punk. I have an incredibly smart, precocious, artistic and creative child who is nearly 13 and I would like more children (but that's not a deal-breaker). The biological father is not in the picture.

My passions include nutrition, naturopathic medicine, alternative & holistic health and helping others. I really enjoy researching and learning and read quite a bit, whether it be researching online or reading books (mostly on nutrition & health, psychology and spirituality). I love learning how things work. I have such fascination for physics, energies, thoughts & speech and how it all interacts within us, between us and others, and everything else in this world.

I like to cook and prepare meals healthfully... but that does not equate to low fat, low protein. I love vegetables but I am no vegetarian. I eat butter and beef - YUM - it's just grassfed. Think more along the lines of Weston Price organic whole foods plus Paleo type eating but I just haven't cut out all the carbs/grains. I don't eat "perfectly" and will eat out upon occasion but if you love to eat or drink junk regularly and have no desire to change that, we seriously would not make a good match. So much of our lives is centered around food and it would be too emotionally difficult for me to be with someone who constantly hurt their body and life like that.

I have always felt like a country girl at heart stuck in the city. The fast paced chaotic life is not my cup of tea. I'm not a "party" girl and don't want to go out more nights than I am home. Don't get me wrong, I like to go out and have fun and I do like to travel but I'm just more of a "home-body." For the right partner, that could change. I still want to see every state and visit a lot of countries - it's such a great way to broaden our horizons and perspections on people and life. I prefer a smaller circle of close friends as opposed to tons of acquaintances. I like small get-togethers and BBQs at home. I love a good movie and watch movies from all different genres - not just chick flicks only. I like "guy" movies too and the super-hero ones too. I'm just totally NOT into horror or gruesome stuff.

I love the beautiful unique position of living between the mountains and the ocean in gorgeous Oregon. I love nature, trees, lots of green things and also being able to breathe ocean air with a not-so-long drive away. Ultimately, I'd love to live on some land and have a large garden to grow some of my own food and have goats, maybe a cow and some chickens. It's not a deal-breaker if you are not interested in that type of life, it's just a dream of mine. I'd prefer to live on the outskirts or just outside of a major city. Either in work or play, I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty. And like most women, I love to get dressed up now and again. But I'm not a daily make-up wearer.

I have a very family oriented focus. I like to give to and help those in need. I'd love to do more artistic and creative things and learn to play acoustic guitar. I love sitting around a fire, singing songs while someone plays guitar. I don't have a lot of experience but would love to go fishing or target shooting (gun or bow). I'm very open to outdoor activities and playing sports if my partner has such interests.

Please have some form of an active spiritual life and perspective with a desire for learning and growth. My beliefs are definitely not limited to those held by mainstream Christianity by any measure. I don't put God or life in a box. It's all about love and relationship. We are all connected to one another and God. Please have a willingness and desire to help and love others and the ability to think outside of just yourself.

Please don't be shy. I may have a strong personality and be assertive in many ways but I am very sweet & thoughtful and have a very soft & gentle side. I would prefer a man to take the lead most of the time and have a more dominant and confident personality as opposed to being overly passive. Someone I can lean on and trust so I don't always have to be in charge holding the reins. Please have at least a little fire and a few edges to your personality; but that doesn't equate to being a jerk, negative or drama promoting.

I'm not here to meet people to just jump into bed with. But I am very affectionate. I'm looking for a best friend, relationship, love and real intimacy first.

If you are far left-wing, we would not make a good match. I would consider myself on the conservative side of Libertarian. In order for us to be a good match, you must be awakened to at least some degree. Those who are will know what I mean. One litmus test: if you believe what the media (and so much more) is trying to brainwash you with, then we would not make a good match.

Thanks for dropping by and reading. I hope you find the perfect match for you. Take care and be blessed! :)

Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Where we go or what we specifically do is not as important. As long as we are enjoying each other's company and laughing, then we will likely have a good time. Sense of humor is required. :) A walk, mini-golf, bowling, roller skating, walk on the beach, sitting and getting to know one another? But a meet and greet over coffee or tea is probably best for a first time meeting. I'm open - just bring some good ideas. :)
