I'm a Pacific Northwest editor, writer and author living a meaningfully green, liberal, interesting weather life in Seattle, a city quite like San Francisco.
I'm pretty typical of my city and my region. I grew up with nature, the water and a love of knowledge and these traits characterize me today.
I'm considered open-minded within boundaries and generous as long as it's not presumed upon and can take as good as I can give. Smiling.
University educated, I've been a journalist most of my life, with time off for honest work at Boeing, fighting forest fires, pulling green chain in a lumber mill and working grapes and hops.
I live in a big house with friends on three wooded acres and the landlord is a friend of mine. It's a good place to be while saving up for the down on a place a lot smaller and closer to the ocean.
I enjoy meeting people on here and sometimes from here to in person. I play, however, by the same rules I do offline. So if you're sincere, have looked at my profile and want substance rather than show, let me know.

minstrel312: Meet Rocky (short for a famous Russian composer) He is a member of the Russian Raccoon Mafia and we pay him and his Family protection money. In return, they stay out of the trash and are the reason we do not have an intrusive rodent pest problem. Not one domestic animal has been lost to them and the "bribe" is about a cup of dried cat food a night. It's amazing sometimes how little it costs to show respect.
