Friends describe me as laid back, authentic, elemental, warm, courageous, witty, and willful. I see myself as happy, strong, smart, curious, and open-minded... A teacher of squirrelly middle school youngsters, I'm a mother, sister, daughter, as well as a jewelry and fiber artist. Inspired. Amazed. Content with a simple life. Enjoy jaunts to the city for a show as much as weekends in the mountains, listening to the crackle of a fire. Creative and in my element in the kitchen (and I can cook on an open fire!). Care deeply about the natural environment. Love LIVE music!!! ...almost any genre. Gardening, preserving food (there's nothing like going out to the yard and bringing in lunch). Walking and hiking are fun, and strolling along the ocean shore, when I can. I never wear makeup. I love to touch and be touched. My dream house would be underground, not too big, very energy efficient. Or maybe a darling Arts & Craft style in town. Hey, a girl can dream, can't she? Like you, most of my time is spent doing normal everyday tasks, working, seeing friends now and then, taking care of the home, the family. My grown kids are very cool, and the grand bebe is the best! Sure would like to share my wonderful life. I don't believe we are meant to be alone and since none of us are getting any younger, what are we waiting for???
I need space and freedom while knowing he will be a safe place to fall and, of course, will extend the same to him. Together, we will have lots of fun, build trust, communicate well, and work together to get through it all. I look forward to the connection and closeness of a relationship. While I'm good on my own, and have dear friends, I miss a partner and someone to come home to at the end of the day.
I enjoy being around fun, smart, and kind men. He is...
