My favorite quote is by Ralph Waldo Emerson-- "To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment".
I live in a simple cabin I built in a beautiful forest in Ohio with wood I bought from the Amish. I'm vegan for ethical reasons because I care for all living things. The dog in my pic is one of my Newfies. I'm a hard worker but I'm not a workaholic. I graduated from Ohio State but choose to be a craftsman and work with my hands. I like cooking, playing music and singing, reading or watching a movie or a documentary. I don't get any t.v. stations. I love my pets. They are my anchor. I will rescue any animal I find in need, wild or domesticated, even butterflies in the road, as I don't like to see any living thing suffer. I also try to help old people if I can, like my friend and neighbor Velma who is 96! Her grandfather was in the American civil war!!!! I try to help her and keep her company sometimes since she is isolated and lonely.
I'm really an outdoorsy person but I don't believe in hunting and fishing. I'm horrified by these and can't understand how people can derive so much pleasure from violently murdering other species.
I'm pretty goofy at times. A lot of people say it in their profile but I really am. I love being silly just to be silly, and just to make myself and others laugh.
I'm fascinated by astronomy and the universe. I'm very curious about everything, science, art, music, psychology, medicine, law, justice, history, the environment, weather, permaculture, the list is long...
For me, the acquisition of wealth is not the driving force in my life. I am interested in life-long learning and sharing my life with someone, and all that entails, the good and the bad.
I'm looking for someone that I can be best friends with. I value intelligence and kindness above all else. I also value honesty, loyalty, humor, playfulness, silliness, generosity, selflessness, sentiment, emotion, and the ability to laugh at oneself, to name a few. I'm also looking for someone who can just sit and do nothing sometimes, just relax. A lot of people can't do this..
One of the things I find attractive about a profile is someone who doesn't try to convince the reader that her life is all smiles all the time. I admire someone who has the courage to list the good and the bad about herself. But not many are willing to risk scaring off a potential partner by listing anything negative. I'm more attracted to reality.
I admire a woman who doesn't yield to the pressures of what mainstream society and Madison Avenue have decided a woman should be in America. She doesn't need this kind of validation, and has the confidence in herself to march to her own music. She rejects the role of being subservient to men, and instead attracts me with her naturalness, intellect, wit, sincerity and kindness.
My future partner and I respect each other, a lot. We laugh a lot together and also have serious talks. We can work out disagreements calmly and both of us are eager to compromise for the good of our relationship. We work well as a team and we would really like spending time together doing things, from the mundane to the adventurous. I like doing little things for my partner and not just on holidays. Pick you some flowers, or surprise you by cooking you something or writing a song for you. Maybe just start dancing in the kitchen with you while dinner is cooking. Or maybe just out of the blue tell you I love you. Romance is the best...
What I’m doing with my life:
Trying to leave a small carbon footprint, helping the vulnerable and those in need, pondering and daydreaming about things I need to do, as well as things unrelated to the tasks of everyday life. Like how far is it to the nearest galaxy from ours? (4 light years), Why is there injustice? Why is there such runaway consumerism? I also dream about crazy, funny stuff that cracks me up.
I’m really good at:
Building things, fixing things, expressing myself, compromising, admitting when I'm wrong, saying I'm sorry, making people laugh, staying calm in an emergency.
I'm also pretty good at doing impressions of people, like non famous people I might be talking to...I really don't do impressions though. It's more like caricatures, just for fun. I can do funny things with my voice-probably because I've been a singer all my life.
I'm really bad at keeping my desk and my truck organized, staying focused, saying no to a begging pooch or cat, admitting I'm mortal and will one day die, tolerating any of these: machismo in men or women, racism, sexism towards men or women, ignorance, passive aggressiveness, dishonesty, speciesism, cruelty, narcissism, arrogance, selfishness.
The first thing people notice about me:
I guess that I'm tall... No one has ever told me.
Favorite authors, movies, music, food:
authors- Thoreau, Emerson, Wendell Berry, Phillip Roth, Bukowski
movie- the best of youth (Italian and the movie is 6 hours long)
music- right now I love the Hollies(an early and mid 60's band), and a cd I have of bossa nova lounge music from Brazil.
food- fruits and veggies
Things I could never do without:
my animals, the quiet, beautiful forest I live in, a positive attitude, humor, kindness, emotion, hope, music, dreams.
I spend a lot of time thinking about:
finding love, how big the universe is, injustice, the fate of the planet, how lucky I am to live in such a beautiful forest, how different I am (sometimes it's hard being so different), how cute my new Newfie puppy Emma is, and how fast she's growing, it's amazing...
On a typical Friday night I am:
watching a documentary, talking online, playing or listening to music, designing something I'm going to build.
The most private things I am willing to admit:
I'll share four things: First, I like to chew on Sassafras leaves while I'm walking or working in the forest. It's like nature's candy. Second, I cut my own hair, sometimes at home and sometimes while I'm driving. Third, I'm searching earnestly for peace of mind and inspiration. And fourth, I believe there is a kind, unique, earthy, really smart woman somewhere on this planet searching for me, just as I'm searching for her. Maybe it's you...
You should message me if:
My profile interests you and you want to get to know, and learn from each other. Maybe you feel that I might be the one you have been searching for.
I'm looking for someone kind, honest, affectionate, sentimental, hard working but not a workaholic, loves animals, is passionate about what she does and believes in, likes to talk about things and can compromise sometimes. Likes to cook. Is playful and goofy, laughs easily, cries easily, might be nerdy, is really smart.
