I am a compassionate person with deep convictions who likes to think deeply (sometimes I need to be brought back to earth and reminded of daily matters) , learn about other people and how I can help. I like to meet people of different backgrounds and nations. I love beautiful ethereal music (classical sacred music, piano/chopin, the arts etc. . ) , and music like twila paris/rich mullins. and a little secular stuff too. I like to read spiritual books like thomas merton, nouwen, and cs lewis) and exercise with tennis and bikeriding. Nature is one my favorite things to me and I am up for most outdoor activities (it affords exercise, fellowsip, worship, reflection- eg. camping at mount rainier is like watching a painting in motion (from sun up to sun down) . I strive to cook creatively and healthy. I put all the good stuff first, but like all us, there are still things that need work and improvement (nothing super bad) . I have learned alot about myself, and would like to find a person who can articulate things about themselves (iron sharpens iron). I very rarely get angry because I see the eternal perspective, I am looking for someone with similar communication style/connectedness. Sometimes communication trancends word (such as music, enjoying something beatiful together in silence).
