I am a teacher, an activist and someone who loves to have adventures in wild places. I travel much, and tell good stories. I appreciate all of the good things and see the spiritual in everything and everyone. I am looking for a woman that can be my partner in adventures and enjoy living life to its fullest. I greatly appreciate folks who love themselves and practice respect and compassion for others always. I love to garden, cook, make things, imagine a better future, work towards that future, use natural materials, drink and eat high quality food and have adventures. I brew my own beer and make all kinds of other things. I know how to sew. I think how one sees the world is very important. I think we all need to open our eyes a bit more- both to the suffering and hardship of many around us (as well as our own privilege) but also to the beauty and wonder that the world has to offer.I love to be in the outdoors. I bike almost every day and really like it (even in the rain). I know about my local geology and natural history. I am connected in the community. I know about well and gather wild plants and fungi, often. I believe this is a good thing for my health and my connection to the environment in which I live.I am very opinionated about many things that I have learned about, but I also listen very well to those that I do not agree with. It is important for all of us to be open to folks who are from a different political, cultural or class background. We all have so much to learn from each other.That said, I will work tirelessly to practice what I preach regarding sustainability and positive living. I think part of this is enjoying it all.
