HeadlineAre you happy to not live together? I have a strong social conscience, smile and laugh readily and am kind and loving.
Soft and fun on the outside, strong and resilient on the inside, I studied music and then enough philosophy to not want to live life in a regular way. Until a few years ago I really found my passion by throwing myself heart and soul into challenging war, nukes, injustice etc and doing all I could to help build alternatives. I have now moved away from organised politics. I guess the time most people spent in their twenties and thirties working I spent studying and doing political activism, only working enough to survive.
Now I am fifty-four I am prioritising ensuring I can spend enough time with my family and friends - particularly my six gorgeous nephews and nieces who range in age from 7 to 17yo. I still hold strong progressive views but I'm very glad younger people are taking up the leadership roles now.
I've been lucky to have spent six and a half years overseas - living in England and New Zealand, backpacking through South America and Africa and teaching English to Tibetan refugees in India. A few years ago I was in the Palestinian Territories, Egypt and Jordan, but more recently have been to safer places - hiking in the Tarkine, visiting the Arctic and walking in the national parks of Canada and Alaska.
I have a healthy lifestyle. I don't drink alcohol or coffee but I don't mind if you do. I eat lots of delicious organic food and I try to keep myself fit by swimming and doing yoga and pilates classes each week. I also love bushwalking.
I have reduced my piano student numbers to only sixteen a week now. I can't believe that I had the energy for fifty-two! This year I plan to smell as many roses as possible! Would you like to smell them with me?

What I'm looking for
Someone I'm stimulated by and attracted to physically, emotionally and mentally. He would be kind, loyal and have a broadly similar outlook on life and the world. We could relax, connect and laugh together doing things we both enjoyed.
- I have an intense relationship to music - if I love it I tend to get very absorbed in it. If I don't like it I don't want to hear it. The music I love is usually either classical, alternative or soulful/meaningful.
- I read The Age and online political articles most days. I also have many mostly 'heavy' books waiting patiently on my bookshelves - The Australian Constitution, History of the World, International Relations, War and Peace etc.
- Movies & TV
- I like films with some depth and insight into the human condition and enjoyed some MIFF films. I'm watching too much television at the moment but it's so relaxing!
- I swim, do yoga and pilates and get around by bike. I love bush walking and want to do as much as possible this year.
- Other Interests
- Trying to get completely organised (joke), making my apartment as sustainable as possible, feeling light, free and lucky and trying to be and do the best I can.
