I'm a kind and genuine person & laugh easily (and almost always with you!) I enjoy helping people and hearing their stories and value warmth and compassion. I am also open minded, drawn to the fringes and wild places, am articulate, and think silliness is very under-rated! Originally from east coast, I've transplanted to the Bay Area well. I have a calm and gentle presence, and a non-compliant mind. I think of myself as a person with a strong and passionate will and an understated style of expression.
I love learning about new things and try to cultivate a sense of wonder and fascination for life. It could be in finding a fresh perspective on the familiar or in stimulating my mind with new books, or classes, or conversation. I also like to have lots of little projects going: I'm currently enjoying making plant medicines, learning to ferment foods, slowly piecing a quilt together, sculpting with clay, growing food and making compost! I'll drop lots of things to be outdoors In the garden or hiking or camping (especially when I can be near the ocean or a river). I like sharing adventures and meandering around town, hearing/seeing live music, going out to explore the deliciousness of our local cuisine, searching for treasures and useful things at the flea or thrift or curb, dancing, cooking yummy meals with/for people, giving and receiving massage, going to the farmer’s market, tide pool hopping ...
I'm seeking people who are grounded yet able to see the magic in the everyday, who know themselves well, enjoy conversation, are caring and affectionate, and seek meaningful connection, and who know how to laugh at life with compassion.
A chance to meander and see where wandering goes. A relaxed teahouse, delightful eatery, or an outdoor foray... there are so many nice ways to meet, as long as there is room to relax and get to know each other.
