Love the ying and yang of life. Looking for someone who can enjoy it all, from the little daily pleasures to those big moments that come along every so often. Love to learn new things and have my senses reawakened through open-minded daily living. I don't think life is a series of quick fixes to get somewhere, but rather a set of stories, each with their own plot to reveal. I strive to fill my life with joy and gratitude, living in the moment rather than projecting expectations for the future.
What's important to me in a partner: someone who can laugh til they cry, cry til they laugh someone who likes to touch and can't live without mine someone who can plan a great night out but doesn't mind a spur of the moment detour. Passion is a must for me and comes in many fashions, but it's still passion--it's that fire that keeps life lit. And, of course, there are those "givens"-- integrity, intelligence, humor and giving to others.
Guess I would describe myself as a contented, grateful, creative, giving and passionate woman. More of a jeans girl, but I've been told I clean up really well! No drama, confident. Things I can't live without: my family and friends, being outdoors, daily exercise, reading and writing (100 pages into first novel), the arts and music. Love to explore things off the beaten path--a hole in the wall restaurant, roadside stands, etc. Well-traveled, many life experiences, different jobs...ask me about my fish market!
Quote from my favorite poem, The Path to Nowhere:
Bids me dream and bids me linger,
Joy and Beauty are its goal,—
On the path that leads to Nowhere
I have sometimes found my soul!
Are you that someone who will take the path with me?
