I enjoy both introverted and extroverted activities—I love people, creativity and the popular arts, spiritual teachings and practices, and exploring the Bay Area (love that GPS!).
I enjoy spending time with my friends, family, co-workers, and the clients I work with. I value quality conversation, going to restaurants or coffee shops, going to movies (including the Stanford Theatre), new and used book/CD/DVD stores, museums, and an occasional concert. I like to watch old (and some new) TV shows and movies, listening to music of all kinds, e-mail, Facebook, Wikipedia, and amazon.com. As a cartoonist and self-publisher, I write, draw, and color my own comic strips and comic book stories. I am also a comic book and comic art collector/historian.
I enjoy nature and would like to do more hiking. I do not have any pets right now, but I do love animals. I engage in a variety of spiritual practices, including meditation, journaling, reading, DVDs or MP3s of spiritual teachings, as well as going to satsangs and spiritual talks & events, movement meditation, an occasional conference, and a local Buddhist group.
I’m looking for a healthy, conscious relationship with a self-aware woman; someone I can cherish and love deeply; someone who is open, loving, affectionate, and loyal; someone who is emotionally mature (who has insight into her emotional world and does not project negative emotions onto others); someone who is aware of her own divine perfection and human imperfections; someone who can provide support and encouragement for my creative endeavors.
Favorite books/audiobooks: Ken Wilber, Alan Watts, Adyashanti, Caroline Myss, Cheri Huber, Tara Brach, Robert Holden, Harville Hendrix, Warren Farrell, David Deida; Buddhism, Jungian Psychology, Spirituality.
