More About MeI try to work hard. I try to love freely. I try to understand. My children have done their best to teach me how to dress so as to not look silly. Left to my own devices I am so aware of the world of ideas and spirituality that I sometimes seem to lose touch with the world of physical reality. When that happens I have learned to ground myself - often by hanging out with trees, plants, and such. When writing poetry I prefer sonnets; the highly structured form makes me feel free to focus on expressing my ideas. I love God but believe formal religion often misses the reality of knowing Him. I am unoffended by those who use a feminine pronoun for deity. I believe God is Spirit. Both gender neutral and somehow gender inclusive. I personally relate to God best as Father, so I use the traditional masculine pronoun. I enjoy nice things when I have them but if I had no family could be happy living like a hermit (I think Thoreau is awesome). Sometimes I am just plain goofy. I can seem like a hundred year old man and a twelve year old kid at the same time. How can I possibly describe myself of any person? We are the image and offspring of God, therefore we defy description. I considered leaving this blank, but decided to let it all hang out. I really think this way so I suppose it is only fair to offer some fairly representative sample for your consideration. :)
Political AffiliationI am registered Republican but actually very independent. I suspect it is impossible to move forward in either party without compromising one's integrity. And voters typically argue their party's position without any real knowledge of the issues. I vote for whomever I believe is the best person..
Who I Would Like to MeetI like kind people, honest people, faithful people, spiritual people (even if we approach spirituality from different angles). I enjoy curious, bright people who continue to ask questions even as adults. I like agreeable people who are strong enough that we can disagree without either of us feeling threatened or diminished by the disagreement. I like people who are in awe of the glorious world around them. I like people who deal with me authentically. I like people who see this kind of thinking as cool rather than weird.
