A little about me...
Family, nature, honesty, integrity, compassion, outdoors, horseback riding in the Wind Rivers, good chocolate, the wisdom and patience that come with age, being insatiably curious - these are a few of my favorite things. I like spending time in bookstores, particularly used bookstores. Used to love spending weekends tent camping just below treeline - it's so invigorating! - cross country skiing or snowshoeing. Now try to grow trees, shrubs, flowers, and garden. Like travel to new places, museums, plays, time with family, working outdoors, reading, writing, and learning. Last Sunday was sunny and warm, and I sat for a while on a wooden bench in a winter garden, and watched the clouds against the brilliant blue sky. I soaked up the sun while the clouds' wispy edges reached toward one another. It might be nice to have someone to sit beside me and do that. I listen to npr a lot when commuting, sometimes switching to classical, various kinds of rock, or the "blue plate special"; am a Myers-Briggs INFP personality type. I read a lot (primarily non-fiction), and write a lot when I'm not working on something outdoors. Am a loyal, honest, communicative partner. I'm comfortable as "me" but think life could be richer as "we".
About the one I'm looking for...
Honesty would be right up there on the must-have list. So are good communication, great friendship, integrity, and making family a priority. Enjoying animals and the outdoors would be good. And possibly not thinking that one religion is all right and the others are all wrong. Am looking for that special someone to say, "you make me melt when you look at me like that."
I'd just like to add...
I'm in Colorado Springs on a regular basis, and consider people / places there to be quite convenient. I don't go to the gym and "work out" - I actively work outdoors, with the side-effect that I stay fairly well in shape. I've been to the "lower 48" except Maine, worked my way across Wyoming on the Sesquicentennial Oregon Trail Wagon Train, and once - not now - lived a very primitive but life-enhancing four years off the grid. If you're interested, please write!
