The Greatest Artform is the Cultivation of Peace in Ones Heart.
Regarding the Metaphysical
A little about me
Artist. Environmentalist. Spiritual. Brainy. Communicative. Practical. Rational. Open-minded.
I love to design houses using natural materials and techniques, things like earthbag building, earthships, cob, and strawbale. I'd like to learn more about permaculture and eventually buy a small piece of land to build an earthbag/earthship house and grow most of my own food.
At first my ideas about life and the way I like to live may seem idealistic, but if you talk to me, you will see that my ideas are actually well researched, grounded, and very practical. They stem from a philosophy/way of life called voluntary simplicity. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simple_living
I don't easily go with the flow of mainstream thought/ways of living. I am quickly bored by small talk. I would prefer one DEEP, philosophical conversation to a thousand conversations about the weather or Jersey Shore. I am constantly searching for answers to complex questions - fully realizing that our biggest questions are unanswerable. It's the thrill of the conversation that drives me.
I am 5'2", height to weight NOT proportionate, long brown hair, blue/grey eyes. I don't wear make-up usually and I freaking hate high heels. I like to have my feet flat on the ground thank you.
Let me tell you about you
Who I'm looking for:
Someone who gets that life is about more than working at a job they hate so they can buy material objects that will never satisfy them till they end up as worm food.
Spiritual, creative, social, open-minded, likes to have deep philosophical conversations for no other reason than that it's damn fun. Someone who loves music, art, writing, anything creative. Romantic a little. Cares about the environment enough to live differently. Someone who has the courage to stand by their convictions.
Physically I am quite open-minded. I am attracted people of all races/nationalities. I would prefer someone who is a little taller than me (5'3"+).
Someone is my age range (28-40) would be good but I am open. I'll talk to anyone ;-)
And most importantly, you have to have a spark in your eyes (don't worry - I can tell by looking at you). Some people have dull eyes.
Others see these qualities in myself
Walking in nature, eating a vegetarian diet, cooking for friends, caring for those I love.
I don't have bad habits but you may notice
Alternative history, spirituality, gardening, architecture, psychology. One of my favorite books: The Mission of Art by Alex Grey.
Too many to name. A few favorites would be The Blues Brothers, Andy Goldsworthy's Rivers and Tides, Office Space, Waiting for Guffman, Garbage Warrior. I really enjoy watching documentaries. Strongly dislike gratuitous violence, horror, war films.
Don't watch a lot of shows. The Daily Show, Downton Abbey, New Girl, The Office, Parenthood are a few I watch, but nothing religiously.
Huge category. Here are a very small few of a MUCH larger list.
- Florence & The Machine
- Aretha Franklin
- Bonnie Raitt
- Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros
- Otis Redding
- Patty Griffin
- Nina Simone
and the list goes on...
What I DON'T like - metal, rap, bluegrass, techno (for the most part), country (unless it's alt country or something respectable like J Cash), most mainstream pop music.
I eat a vegetarian diet. Eggs are ok but NO MEAT of any kind. I love Indian, Chinese, Italian, Thai, Mexican. I'll try just about anything, except meat. I am a great cook - especially Indian food.
For work - I have had my own business doing graphic and web design, video production, photography, and tech consulting/eduction for the past five and a half years. I am currently looking for a 9-5 because I want to be able to leave my job when I am done at the end of the day (and things like a steady salary and benefits would kick ass).
Other than that, I am a visual artist. I paint, draw, design jewelry, do crafty stuff like sew and knit. I like to grow plants. Spirituality is important to me. I read tarot cards and am constantly exploring the areas of spirituality and consciousness.
