How do you describe yourself in this little box? What I am is more than just words and a picture, I'm a person. I have lived a very full life so far and had many opportunities to see the world and experience the amazing diversity out there. I still get up everyday and find new things to go and experience and enjoy. I tried to think, if I passed away today what would my friends, co-workers and family say about me. Because really that is who I am not what I write in this box. Well I'd like to think they would say Jimmy was a stand up guy, if anyone needed a hand he was there. He has a big heart and showed it not just in words but in his actions too. He constantly learned new things and had a zest for life. He had a good moral code he followed and tried not to sway from it. He went out there and had fun experiencing everything he could. He wasn't afraid to take chances, stepped boldly in the future, and showed true courage from time to time in his life. He didn't give up when times got tough and overcame obstacles and reached for his goals. He was a great chef, teacher, and friend. What do I look forward to in the future? The next adventure of course! I find new ways everyday to appreciate waking up and still being here on the planet. If your still reading wow! Thanks. What I'm looking for is someone join me in my everyday search for adventure and enjoyment in life. Take each day what gifts and tragedies it may have to offer and support each other to get to the next day. I'm looking for someone I am genuinely attracted to deep on the inside. Everyone gets old and changes their physical appearance, it's the inside beautiful thats important. People can look "sexy" on the outside but have lots of inside uglies. I'm looking for someone that gets up everyday works hard, plays hard, and doesn't give up when times are tough.
"One final paragraph of advice: Do not burn yourself out. Be as I am-a reluctant enthusiast... a part time crusader, a half-hearted fanatic. Save the other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure and adventure. It is not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it. While you can. While it is still there. So get out there and mess around with your friends, ramble out yonder and explore the forests, encounter the grizz, climb the mountains. Run the rivers, breathe deep of that yet sweet and lucid air, sit quietly for a while and contemplate the precious stillness, that lovely, mysterious and awesome space. Enjoy yourselves, keep your brain in your head and your head firmly attached to your body, the body active and alive, and I promise you this much: I promise you this one sweet victory over our enemies, over those deskbound people with their hearts in a safe deposit box and their eyes hypnotized by desk calculators. I promise you this: you will outlive the **stards"
If the above quote speaks to you somewhere down deep in your soul send me a message.
Meet up somewhere for coffee or a drink, keep it casual and see if we jive. Would love to go on an adventure somewhere, hike, kayak, etc.
