    Softening people, making sure their needs are met, and that they feel validated and safe, this is just how I am. I take care of lovers I have been with, nurturing the relationship and help us grow together. Meeting someone with my same skill set has been amazing. We treat...

    Now I wait. ;-) Hundred of seeds are sown,

    filling up all my sunny windows. From here on out, first thing each morning I will go see if any seeds are breaking ground. wow... I can't wait. It's so intense for me to watch something so tiny as a seed, grow and breathe. Oh happy days!

    as I work as a gardener but all the XP's I see here are from hobbies. I've been doing it since I was 10 and started full time by 15. I had no place in school and my dad told me if I didn't go to school I'd have to pay rent and that's when I started working. I earned good money...
