Recently I rented a big warehouse with old wooden floors. I'm building elements of a Spanish house I'm designing in the South Bay.. Most days I like to design for my clients and play in my studio, yet it's mixed with lots of contractors and road trips. I'm not one of those sit around kind of people and one day I'll pull out my sails and travel. I would love to live in far off places.
I bought a 300 count collection of classic albums and I play them throughout my day in the shop.
I'm a bit more curious and ask more questions than most people I know, but it's because I love to learn new things. So I suppose you could say I am energetic. (I'm taking advanced algebra so what could be more ambitious than that for an artist type?...ugh...)Sometimes I think the best person for me, is someone similar, kind of artsy and full of surprises, but then again, slower more methodical people intrigue me. I'm working on moving at a bit slower pace. I like balance and I try to make that a daily routine. Energetic, and yet contemplative. I like to go into the city late at night and check out the nightcrawlers...listen to blues and drink coffee in North Beach. I also love to get up in the early morning and hike the hills of Marin. I like to meditate and don't enough. I love to cook for friends on gas burners out on my porch. Chile rellenos is the most requested. Let's go to Mexico and discover wrought iron! It's my new thing. I did that last month and bought lots of hardware in Tijuana, but I want to go again.
I'm pretty bad at meeting people on internet sites. I find the process so boring, and would prefer to go out and listen to a new band and mix with people I meet. But here's my problem: I stay in my studio and build things and have a good time and the idea of dating is paralyzing. Ok, confessions of a studio creeper. Would you like to see my wall of blueprints I put up? My grandfather's drawings make me happy.
I'm suppose to talk about my goals and aspirations: I only whisper those things in your ear at the appropriate time and they change often...yet some I've been working on for years, so I guess that will have to wait....
Ok, and POF suggests I talk about what makes me unique: Unique is all in the eye of the beholder, don't you think?
What would I like to find in a man? Someone who is happy to be alone with themselves so I can play by myself. Someone who loves to share what they do and will spend hours talking about things, maybe other people put to bed after three sentences. (with breaks in between to snuggle) Ok, and last because this writing is way too long: Here's the big number one: Someone who after witnessing the jelly fish in the Monterey Aquarium, is so joyful of the wonders of nature, he wants to skip over the tide pools with me. That's not asking a lot is it?
The day will reveal itself I'm sure...but if I had my way, I would probably like to see something you've made or find out what you read or what drives you, over a cup of tea or a glass of wine.
