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 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. At the moment I am finishing up a graduate degree in healthcare. Whew, almost there! When there is time I like to have little projects going: I enjoy making plant medicines, fermenting foods, slowly piecing a quilt together, sculpting with clay, and I almost always have a garden going! 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.
There are so many nice ways to meet... It's the best when there's room to relax, have fun, and get to know each other... quiet cafe or bar, beach, park, art exhibit... you get the idea.
