A little about me...
Do we ever stop exploring; wanting to learn & grow? Discover more about our world, ourselves, the people we meet? I certainly haven't! It would be tgreat to meet a woman with whom I strike a chord; one who wants to see where our worlds,ways goals may complement/enrich each other.FY.I, I'm active; well-educated both in life & formally; am creative. I love good conversation & am a pretty good listener to boot. I'm competent in practical/intellectual arenas; not wealthy but "ok"
If I were looking at me from your viewpoint ,I'd say that while I’m spontaneous in life activities, I also set goals I DO accomplish. I, like many of us, am a travel lover. I enjoy both the simple, and the "luxurious"- rom fine hotels to hostels/camping/sea-kayaking in the rain- and PBS mysteries!
I've tried my hand at a number of things: teaching, public/university/gov't admin. commercial fishing, entrepreneurship , volunteer work, building my home. I've advanced degrees from some great schools [Harvard, USC, ASU, U-Hawaii], & gained incredible education at the feet of amazing rural people who are masters in things "un-learnable" in traditional schools.If you've youngsters in your life I'd probably like them, & odds are decent they'd like me tool
About the one I'm looking for...
I'm definitely spiritual, humbly prayerful, creative, love to play, & to contribute to my world.- but i also handle the "tough&tedious" things that arise for all of us, & I don't rely on a creator to be my conscious or "cop out" to dogma to substitute for my responsibilities . In fact, I regard taking up ethical, physical, emotional intellectual challenges-as well as seeing,& taking deep delight in all the small & great gifts that cross our paths constantly, as 2 of our rich purposes on this earth Is that you too?
I'm perhaps almost too loyal, attentive to friends; into kindness, "real" communication, laughter, intelligence, spontaneity. I’ve a strong sense of ethics that craves honesty mutual respect. I need the same in a possible partner.- Walks on the beach are great - but deeper things are the glue and the positive work of relationship..Intelligent and frequent communication is critical. Lack of fear in expressing concerns, and in feeling affection and in showing it are important too... I appreciate "norms" and conservatism in showing public affection- but I don't want your or my honest feelings to not be expressed because of too-steep inhibitions.. And, I think I'm done! If you've taken the time to read all this, thank you
I'd just like to add...

My Top Interests:
Nature and Outdoors
Seeking and learning all about life has guided me almost always..and that includes learning from spending long times in wuiet wilderness palces, or in wee communities of people who I can give t and lern fro.. I've had gr4at wilderness times from the Arctic, to the high desert; spent long times getting acquainted with critters I onlybread about as a lad.. and the peace and stillness sooth and enrich my soul.
If you lkeep the doors open, opportunities for personal and intellectual growth can be limitless.. body, spirit, mind nd community are all arenas were growth and richness can always be available.. And I've always loved learning, from books to building; from learning and living a range of different kinds of commercial fishing, to attending a half-dozen grqad school.. sometimes an expensive hobby, but it's always been worth it to me..
Like a lot of us, I came to Alaska on an adventure quest... but that's also what made me live in and travel deep to so many places.. when I travel, my plan has always been to stay for a while.. and I have.. to a bunch of State;s sailing around the Caribbean, camping and exploring still jungle-covered pyramids and temples in Central America, or beaches and friends plcaes in South America,exploring Iceland, ireland, and the Alaska Artic.. I'd like to grt abck to that a wee it, and I've a few pala
