Some of my most exciting experiences have been; snorkeling in Belize and ST. John, watching Sea Turtles as they leisurely eat sea lettuce, eagle rays majestically swimming deep out in the ocean, hiking in a Rain Forest, exploring Myan Ruins and white water rafting in the Forks in ME. I would love to do more exploring and would enjoy doing so with a travel partner. I don't always need that level of excitement as reading a good book out of the back deck in the summer or snuggled with a blanket in the winter feels wonderful.
I have asked for people not to "meet me" as I don't have that feature, however it seems as though they don't get that far (actually read my profile) But I would also ask that you not "favorite me" I have had many "reasons" why this happens, too busy etc. however if you are on the site and looking please take the time to at least say hi. I have lived my life with too many people who wait for me to be the one to take initiative. I take initiative when I see someone that I want to meet by saying hi, so please do the same.
Life has taken an interesting turn for me over the past several months. I am moving back to Maine from CT to start a small farm and hopefully teach some herbal classes. I have been in CT for over a dozen years as a Director of a non-profit and feel ready to slow the hell down
I have learned, at least for myself that true beauty comes from the condition our soul is in, how we meet each challenge presented to us, our attitude and not physical features.
I am pretty low maintenance, very independent, well balanced emotionally and very self aware which means i am still screwed up i just know i am and I spend time on what I become aware of. I don't believe there is a time limit on self growth.
Although I do workout, eat quite healthy, do yoga and meditate it is simply only a part of who I am and these things don't drive me. I am pretty balanced and choose to live my life in the way that is not driven by what others think I should be. This in and of itself has taken a lifetime to embrace.
.In my spare time I love to garden, camp, read books for pleasure,play tennis, swim, canoe, make up new recipes, hike and spend time with family and friends.
I actually know music like: Rihanna, Jason Derulo, to; Queen (ive seen them, hell ya) Megadeth, Van Halen, and Poison (seen them), also, Fleetwood Mac (seen them), James Taylor(yup him too), Indigo Girls(yup). So this is weird but grew up listening to; Charlie Pride, Glen Campbell, Loretta Lynn, Hank Williams etc. I don't like it all but I have to say I appreciate a lot of artists even when I don't like their music
I don't know what the next chapter of my life will bring but I am certainly open to the possibility of love and happiness and I do know that I want companionship with someone who can't wait to see me, someone who has the ability to see 53 years of beauty and challenges and accept it for what it is.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
My first date could range from a cup of tea or coffee, perhaps a walk on a trail or the beach. As long as the setting gives an opportunity to chat and get comfortable with someone I am open.
