I am independent, creative, fun, open- minded and introspective. A person always evolving personally and interested in meeting those who like to communicate and talk about both the inner and outer life. I play guitar and write music, poetry and prose. I love the outdoors, gardening, and walking in nature. I lived in Alaska in the 70s and was a gypsy hippie, then a school teacher for ten years east of Seattle and a grant administrator for an arts nonprofit. I enjoy cooking and entertaining, music (anything from Dylan to Death Cab for Cutie), my latest favorite movie was Midnight in Paris by Woody Allen, and my current favorite TV shows are The Good Wife and Big Bang Theory. I like Thai, Japanese and Middle Eastern food. I know there is more, but you will have to discover it later!
