    I am 27, and I live on a shy 5 acres between Mt. Raineer and Tacoma. I am in love with the land.
    I am building something of a shrine to nature, to the cosmos, divinity. Working to plant a food forest with special shapes and patterns. Studying the stars, etc.
    There are two streams on the property and 12 species of edible wild berries. Wild cherry rootstock is abundant. There are cedar trees, fir trees, hemlock, alder, big leaf Maple, cottonwood,  vine Maple, Douglas Maple, and a few other trees. We have a 2 acre private clearing in the forest.
     This land is sacred to me and all the life forms and beings that inhabit it. I am working to protect and nurture the wilderness and work in harmony with it to create co-habitat for people and wildlife. Working from scratch is challenging, and I am working part time outside to finance this.
     I am self-employed and have several sources of income, and am very close to getting a business license.
I enjoy going to festivals and co-creating with other artists. I dabble in every medium of art and see the way I choose to live as an art.
    There are several lakes and 100-300ft waterfalls within a half hour from here and rivers with Sandy beaches. I am working with my neighbors to help them get ready for horses and goats.
     We have owls that live here, bats, elk and deer visit frequently, we have an ancient prehistoric mammal called the appladontia living here, Hawks, eagles, so many birds and beings. The ocean is near, the mountains are here, and we live in a rain forest.
    There is a lot of employment opportunity especially for the entrepreneurial type.
    Other than being strictly interested in women, I am pretty open romantically. While I am open to falling completely in love with a woman, I am equally interested in genuine friendships and other partnerships.
    I could really use help here, and a woman who shares some of my passions and interests is really the only thing lacking to complete my dream. I have been working on this for over 3 years. It has often been lonely, but I'm mostly past that. I am very busy. I enjoy my privacy and space, but something is missing.
    I do dream of one day having a family. But I would want to have known my mate for several years before hand and have built a cozy, nurturing environment for the family to grow with. I have many dreams.....
    I could write a book about this land and all about my unique way of life, but some things you can only experience.
   Hiking, picnics, motorcycle, ocean, festivals, dancing, community events, travelling, waterfall rappelling, living with nature, Seattle, Tacoma, Olympia, library.

Hey Orion, I'm a man but live relatively nearby (Lewis County). I'd love to touch base and make friends with you. Do you go to Morton often?
