I have a full life and incredible friends. Then, every once in awhile I wish I had someone in my life that I care about in a more romantic way to share time with. I'm giving it a go by completing this profile to check out the possibility. I love life every day, enjoy everything I do and am interested in bringing more into my life. I'm seriously curious, meaning I approach new things sincerely wanting to learn and understand. Because of this I have a life with a broad array of experiences and interests. Usually if I get interested enough I end up competing or at least have goals to meet. Most of my interests involve nature.
Nature nurtures my spirit and renews me. I was awestruck when I visited Stonehenge and equally in awe swimming with dolphins and snorkeling in Hawaii. Well, actually, I can't swim so the benefit of a boogie board and a noodle enabled me to make those work. I once made a full size replica of a Sioux tipi and then sat quietly while livestock and birds came around the camp that never had before. A horse even tried to peek inside. This experience was companion to a love for archery and black powder guns. I successfully competed and hunted although I felt the hunt was just as successful when I became enough a part of nature that a squirrel would scamper up my leg before he realized I wasn't a limb. I believe in eating what you kill or releasing it.
I love to travel whether it's actually going, which I do, or reading about possible places to visit. I love to move and can't think of anything more wonderful than dancing, which for me is the physical expression of music. And I love all kinds of music, especially Zydeco that originated from Southwest Louisiana, along with rock, country, blues, easy listening, new age, classical, Reggae, jazz...
I've always had animals in my life. Horses and dogs mostly. I used to rodeo, barrel racing and a little roping, along with showing. I got heavily into dogs some years back, breeding and showing dogs. Now I have my last two champions and a puppy I adore. Once again, as in rodeo and hunting, the pleasure has evolved.
I give back through volunteerism as well as fund raising. I ran a half marathon to raise money to fight HIV/AIDS a couple of years ago, which also supports my love of running. I am currently tutoring in an adult literacy program, which also supports my love for reading. I'm a frustrated farmer with a beautiful yard. Due to the fact that no amount of Sluggo can get rid of the snails, I'm limited to vegetables in pots - blue berries, tomatoes, squash and strawberries. And roses all over my yard along with other flowers, birds and squirrels.
I've noticed that most everything I've talked about contains the word love. Well, my overall goal is to have a life I love living. And I do.
