I am a passionate person and have learned to trust my heart yet hold onto my head. I've found beauty in many rare corners of the world, as well as the everyday, and am looking for someone who realizes that transcendent moments are best shared. More concretely, I tend to go for more artistically and emotionally intelligent women, but am always open to new people. Down to earth, unpretentious, caring, conscientious women who have got their lives together, more or less.
Although I think of myself as a post-theist, many of the religious traditions I've intimately known are an important part of my identity, and I embrace myth and ritual as essential to a meaningful life. I have been blessed to have many wonderful teachers from all walks of life, and understand that there is no "Truth", but many truths. So I would prefer to date someone who is comfortable questioning and exploring ritual and spirituality in many forms, rather than strictly following a proscribed set of religious laws.
I have thoughtful opinions and come up with all sorts of ideas and theories, but I'm not stubborn and they are generally open to conversation and revision. I can go off on long monologues sometimes, especially if I'm nervous, but do eventually shut up and can be a really good listener too.
I keep a humble, but tidy and charming home. I cook and clean for myself, and take care of my two pups, while trying to do my best to uplift the world around me. I start each day with a bit of yoga, a good breakfast, and a walk with my dogs. I'm generally working on a few projects at a time, and try to balance my head out in the garden or cooking a new dish. Having someone to share in this daily beauty would be lovely.
