What I Want to Do:


 
A Moment . . .
I am currently a web programmer; however, it just puts food on the table. I have no passion for my current job – it’s just a support bridge to help me get to where I want to be. Unfortunately, I’m very good at what I do, and thus I am in high demand with by employer. I suspect I’ll stay at my current position for the next 5 or 6 years, until then …

I am a naturist – a lover of nature (not so much a nudist). When I was 4 my family moved from Eastern Iowa to a farmhouse just outside of a small town in North Central Missouri. We lived there for many years, and some of my fondest childhood memories are set in that magical place.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a zeal for nature – whether it flora or fauna. I believe all living entities have a spirit and that we should respect and nurture those spirits. I am not, however, a vegan or vegetarian – as I believe the natural process of nature is to consume a once living entity. This is seen in all life (herbivores or carnivores), with the exception of some organisms (consumption of metals, i.e. rust). I do not support or purchase meats from producers who use inhuman methods (i.e. veal or foie gras).

I am in a relationship with a wonderful man, Jeff. We are engaged, but don’t have any firm plans on when to get married. We both agree we do not need a license to tell us we are happy. We hope to have a child or two … but we’ll see what the future brings. Right now, our hands are full with our two cats (Princess Polly Prissy Pants & Jasper) and two dogs (Atlas & Baron). Jeff and I have been compared to Dharma & Greg. I’m a bit of a hippie and he is a bit straight-laced. But fortunately, we have the same political views … Drop Bush Not Bombs!

I also have a fascination for the rural Japanese Culture. In addition, the Shinto religion – since it is similar to my current beliefs. I hope to one day travel to Shikoku and make the 88 temple pilgrimage.

As of now, I really don’t have much more to say. It’s hard to sum up 24 years of a person in a few paragraphs … but hopefully this gets the idea across.
