Waiting for a Bastard with a Direwolf...
Just a simple girl that likes simple things in life. I am learning to ride a motorcycle. I like to fish, camp and hike. I like swimming and other water activities. I am a bit of a rock hound. I moved from North Carolina in March of 2004 to sunny north Florida. While in North Carolina, I discovered my love of rock hounding and collecting. Although there are not as many opportunities here in Florida as North Carolina, I still like to search for rocks, finding mostly fossils.
I'm currently in an online university to get my degree in Environmental Science with a minor in Information Technology. I'm a geek, what can I say. I've been very into computers for over 20 years now, I build them, fix them, upgrade, you name it.
I'm very mechanically inclined and can fix most things around the house including my vehicles.
I love animals and have 4 beautiful dogs. I would love to have more animals but I've got so much on my schedule right now that adding to the menagerie is not feasible. In time I will need other animals but for now, the dogs are great company and entertainment.
I have a very eclectic taste in music. I listen to classical to classic rock, country to metal and everything in between. It just depends on my mood as to what's on the stereo.
I am a single mother of an adult daughter. I live in north Florida between Tallahassee and Jacksonville. I am a leather artisan and have my own business making tools and toys for the BDSM and other alternative lifestyles. I am a bit shy but can be very outgoing under the right circumstances. I'm just trying to make the best out of life and learning to experience new things and actually live instead of sitting back and watching life pass me by. I love learning new things.
I have been married twice before, both ending in divorce, the last ended in 1995. I am searching for a life partner that wants to work together towards common goals. I would like to find someone that knows that a relationship is a partnership, that we help each other and we are on the same team.
I am very active in the BDSM lifestyle community, attending munches and events nearly every weekend to promote my business, meet new and interesting people in the community and further my knowledge about this lifestyle I love and live.
I have some limited BDSM experience, enough to know that I've finally found the correct path, one that I've searched for all my life. I'm honest to a fault and work very hard to please. I have a quiet demeanor with the occasional boisterous moments. I'm very easygoing and loving.
I'm about a year into my 5 year plan to build a sustainable intentional community. I will probably start some construction and do some preliminary experiments with regards to construction this spring (2015). I've done quite a bit of research on construction methods and will likely end up doing a hybrid design of 2-3 different methods. Because this is Florida, climate control is high on the priority list. I hope to mitigate the need for any traditional climate control mechanisms (air conditioning/electric heat). I plan on using materials that are recycled, recovered or naturally/readily available on the property. Wind and solar will provide electricity and everything will run on a 12/24 volt system. The plan is to build as money and help are available and I hope to start with about 4 people here and growing to possibly 20, maybe more if the land will support us all. We will be growing most of our own food here.
I'm looking for friends, interested in learning and living in a sustainable community. It would be preferable that they can work from home or have a source of income that is not dependent on punching a time clock somewhere. Jobs are scarce here or there would be a hell of a commute involved. Not saying that I would exclude people for having traditional jobs, but it defeats the purpose of being self sustaining. We will be growing organic herbs here and other things that can be sold online or at local farmers markets, etc. to support the project, pay taxes and purchase things that we can't make or that would be too labor intensive to make.
I'm open to men and women alike, from any background, ethnicity, sexual orientation etc. to join in the sustainable community project. The main criteria is that they are open minded, free thinkers that believe like I do, that there is a better way than this over commercialized consumer driven selfish society we live in.
