I’m a long-time Southeast Alaskan conservationist who is in the Port Townsend area this fall/winter. I’m healthy, happy and emotionally mature. I eclectically study Vipassana and Shambhala Buddhism and meditate most mornings. I love being outside. I walk lots, hike along the ocean or up moderate mountains, sea kayak with porpoises and whales, and X country ski. I play old-time banjo and sing (and some flute too). I’m learning to sing harmony. I like to garden. I eat organic food as much as possible, including wild salmon, and enjoy sharing cooking. I’m pragmatic and liberal.
