A little about me...
An unusual combo of artist and techie...was a self employed artist for 28 years, now in web design/technology. Have a great job with a government agency running a large website. I also manage contractors producing educational products for the website.
Still an artist at heart and after working with clay for many years found I loved working with watercolors, printmaking and collage. Spent a few years dyeing silk and other fabric. Creating beautiful things is deeply satisfying and exciting to me. Art, like my spiritual practice opens my heart. Photography also is an interest of mine.
I am loving, honest, trustworthy, willing and able to do what it takes to be in relationship with someone. Laughing, deep sharing, finding joy in unexpected moments of grace...I have a daily spiritual practice for five years in a contemplative tradition. One of the things I love about it is that it is not dogmatic and is accepting of all traditions.
About the one I'm looking for...
I would like to date someone who is interested in a mutual exploration of who we are and who we might be together. I like creativity and heart connections. Qualities that are important to me: loving, respectful, fun, loyal, able to share feelings and be gracefully honest. Emotionally mature. Spiritually inclined would be a plus...
I'd just like to add...
Some things we might enjoy together: hiking, being at the ocean or on a lake, sailing, walks anywhere, being cozy at home, special trips, museums, dinner out...

My Top Interests:
Crafts and Creating
It is soul satisfying to me to create something or see colors and shapes happen in a beautiful combination. Beauty is very important to me, I am a visual person.
Religion and Spirituality
My spiritual life has opened up since I found the contemplative tradition that I have been following for 5 years. It has deepened my understanding of myself, helped me change old habits of thinking and given me a depth to relating to the world of nature and people.
Travel is great, although I tend to be a bit of a wimp when it comes to going to exotic places. I have traveled to Scotland, Italy and Spain and would love to do more with a partner. (Although my job limits my time off)
