Well as of June 9, 2011 this thing has been read like 2,000 times, so maybe I'll completely modify it and actually say more!
I am now entirely scratching my entry from years ago. (Doesn't that sound sad? Single for years? Alas)
I still don't want to say much about myself, because you probably Do already know me, or know someone who knows me. And real-life impressions will be much more accurate than what I can dream up to say about myself. I'm easy to look up online, but kinda feel weird about someone cyber stalking me. I'm friends on facebook with only people I know.
I really don't date addicts, it's a waste of my time. I really don't date guys who aren't respected by their community members or their family; I aim for partners who are really Good People to be around.
Over the years I've come to realize that my #1 requirement in a partner is that he have a solid spiritual foundation. Permaculture is nice and all, but if I had to choose I'd pick someone with spiritual tools rather than heaps of knowledge.
That being said, I've also noticed that I work well with smart activists who are passionate or skilled about something I think has integrity. And there are all kinds of different activists, and all sorts of things to be skilled in. I take a lot of action in the world around me and need to be with someone who 'gets' that.
I want my life partnership to be in a team that is well matched, and where we can support each other in a lot of ways, and where our community will want us as part of Their team and want to support us as a couple.
I get saddened by seeing couples who have to spend a lot of their love and energy for the world drained by a poor relationship. I want to be in a relationship that will expand and nurture my love and energy for the world around me, and allow me to grow. I want to be with someone who has a strong sense of integrity and is truly strong enough for intimacy, so that I can throw all my weight behind really supporting him.
PS. I also harbor the fantasy of Not being such a civically-active person for a few years as I help nourish children grow up in a garden.
Kelda, you are awfully cute and I really like what you say about yourself and what you expect of a relationaship.
I live in Ecuador, own a small hostel at the beach, persuing sustsainability in my life actions and also into academics with a nearby University. I think Facebook is a good way to "know" about each other vecause there is a "history" of events, photographs, etc that permit pèople to at lest "see" what others want to show..nevsrtheless, smart ones can reada between lines. I dont want to cyber stalk, but indeed is a smoother way of knowing people compared to this plain window of messages. If you want to be friends my name is Luis Fernando Chavez and my lodge is called Tagualodge at the town of Manglaralto.. Hope to keep in touch.
Hi Kelda! I really loved to read your words!
Well i dont know if you would be interested to come to Europe, my propertie its in Portugal. Its a very beautifull place, with lots of wilderness around, but also near from civilization!
Im starting my project now, its not all about permaculture, but ofcourse permaculture have an important role on it. ´
My three main ideas for the project are, organic farming, an eco camping and an Arts and Crafts school. Im really starting this year, and because im teaching in a high school this year, i only have the weekends and the school holidays to go to the farm, but when the school ends i hope to be there full time.
Well i hope to ear more from you, and offcourse if you want to know more about me, im open for it.
I must start by saying I am sad to see you modified your post! I am curious to know what may have changed for you over the past months/years? I think what strikes me most about your post is that you seem to have a very clear picture of what kind of person your partner will be. I feel that is a very important step to a successful relationship and I hope your post aides you in your search for a partner.
From what I can tell you seem like a person who lives her life to the fullest in every respect be it personally, professionally, or romantically. You have an immensely powerful presence which seems to command the attention of those around you yet there is a disarming, child-like innocence in your laugh and smile. I hope you find a partner who is equally as passionate about life. And, when you do, I imagine the things you two will achieve together will be immensely wonderful and limitless.

Fine. Since you asked my previous post was something like "Between the ages of 25 and 40. No cheaters, liars, or addicts. Must have good relationship with mother. Don't stalk me online please" that kind of thing. Basically noone really liked that kind of post, but that's what happens under duress of blackmail.
But hey, I'd also be open to dating really good looking ex-marines working their way out of saturn return. I mean not a lot of them, but maybe one. Must watch I heart huckabees again and pinky swear not to vote for any more bush relatives.
I think this thread has the potential to be one of the most epic threads in the permies repository. Screw setting the bar high, I say make it an epic quest!
First I think a title change might spice it up a bit maybe, "The Legend of Kelda"
Next, I think we need to form what you're looking for more into a quest. Don't ask me why but dude's like quests.
So sticking with the Zelda theme here...
The quest begins as the fairy Navi (character TBD) awakens our hero from a nightmare, in which he witnesses a stormy night where a man in black armor on horseback Monsanto chases after a girl on a white horse. Navi brings our hero to the guardian of his village, the Great Redwood Tree who is cursed and near death. Our hero breaks the curse, but cannot stop the tree from withering. The Redwood Tree tells our hero a "wicked man of the desert" Monsanto has cursed him and seeks to conquer the land of Pugent Sound and that our hero must stop him. Before dying, the Great Redwood Tree gives our hero the spiritual stone of the forest, thus proving his good standing with his community and family , and sends him to Pugent Sound Castle to speak with the "princess of destiny."
At Pungent Sound Castle, our hero meets Princess Kelda, who has been having dreams about the future of pungent sound and foresaw our hero's arrival. She believes Ganondorf Monsanto, the King of Thieves and Poison, is seeking the Triforce, a holy relic in the Sacred Realm that gives its holder god-like power. Kelda's description of Ganondorf Monsanto matches that of the man who killed the Great Redwood Tree, as well as the man from our hero's nightmare. Kelda asks our hero to obtain the three Spiritual Stones, as she requires her suitor to be one with a strong spiritual foundation . Once they are in his possession our hero may then enter the Sacred Realm and claim the Triforce before Ganondorf Monsanto reaches it.
End of Act 1
So there we go, roughed out at bit.
So far so good I think, but we do need to flesh out the cast of characters a little, any ideas for who can play Navi, our hero's faithful fairy guide? It seems amongst the group we have a rather broad cast of characters, but I'm not going to be the one to name someone as the fairy . I'm thinking Paul would be a great giant, because he's a friggin giant. Ernie and Erica might be great Gorons, as keepers of the fire.
Oh and if kids called you Zelda to tease you as a kid and this just brought up some awful, tragic, and horrible memories I apologize, that was not my intent. I was going for more light hearted and funny.
SE, MI, Zone 5b "Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work."
I have recently jumped into a project. I am planning to build a cabin and small farm or garden in true Permiculture style. I can't see myself stopping in one place yet so I want to rent my small house as cheaply as possible in order to give people a quality place to live but also a demonstration of how we can live comfortably with all the modern world offers without having to harm the natural world that has so much to teach us.
In the spirit of waiting to get to know people in person I wont say too much about myself but will try to give you a feel for myself. I meet all your requirements I am very spiritual or try to be, it isn't something I always continuously do but it is the source of peace and progress in my life that grounds me even when I am not actively trying to listen. I don't believe that age should have any affect on judgement it is only as real as we make it in my opinion however I do hope to find somebody who shares my youthful energy and loves being active. I am trying to be more of a participant in my community but it is a little hard because I tend to keep entering new communities in order to experience more and challenge myself more. I am looking for someone who might want to help me on my project but I hope that I can find a woman interested who might also eventually develop into a life long partner.
My project wont start for real until spring of 2017 and it wont be easy to start i will be camping on my land and working a part time job to pay for the construction. It will be a lot of hard work, learning experiences, and difficulties but I am excited and I would love to have someone just as excited to try new ideas join me.
I hope your search for the right one brings you the person you are looking for,
I think It will show to the side of my post but just encase my name is Elias.
