Looking for a lady to respect, build a relationship and share life with.
I'm creating an off the grid farm in SouthEast Queensland, Australia(West of Brisbane) with large orchards, vegetable gardens and dams.
I'm at 600m above sea level, living in the clouds, with beautiful views of mountains, surrounded by colourful birds, thousands of acres of state forest, national park and rock pools to swim in close by.
I'm a Machinist, Diesel Fitter and Blacksmith and enjoy using my hands to build and repair things.
I love permaculture
, syntropic agroforestry, ancient trees
(my blog- dinosaurtree.blogspot.com), regular trees, plants, beekeeping
, ecology, learning about and photographing wild birds and animals, culture, anthropology, history, astronomy/star gazing, philosophy
, swimming in wild places, through hiking, exploring(I've travelled globally), all types of music/collecting records, vintage hifi, motorbikes, four wheel drives and I also play guitar.
I was born in 1981 and was once an Australian soldier(serving at times in various idiotic oil wars). Now that's all behind me, I work as a Mechanical Fitter in heavy industry every now and then(in power stations, on trains etc), to pay for the things that I can't produce myself. I plan to run my own business at some stage. I hope to have chickens, ducks(I have a duck deficiency) and pigs one day too.

I guess one of my main values is the use of inquiry, knowledge and lived experience
to evaluate what others say, and using those tools to form my own opinions about a subject before readily accepting someone else's. That goes for centre left, right and mainstream media. I guess it's what some would call exercising a level of objectivity.
I aim to hold truth and knowledge as paramount above any sort of political
correctness. I think
if more people
wanted to learn more about everything in their world as well as each other, the human sphere would be a much happier, less violent place.
Without nature, we have nothing and are nothing. A world in which the best financial decision is aligned with the best ecological one could really be something. Especially on a planet with finite resources and a dominant species living the lie of unlimited financial growth.
Apart from that, love, friendship, family, treating others(humans, trees and animals) as you'd like to be treated, respect for each other and creating a society where people can live free of needless violence and persecution are some other ideals worth pursuing.
Our miraculous world and existence, with it's platinum sunrises, sunsets, towering forests, colourful birds and butterflies, soaring clouds, lightning, and the glow of an ancient cosmos above really is something. I feel very lucky to have eventuated and to have been born, out of every other possibility. Being grateful for that is important.
