About me: I am an unconventional thinker, a truth seeker who loves to ask those big questions about life, like, why does sour cream have an expirty date?
Ok, but seriously now, who am I? A passionate guy who is in love with the wonder and magic of "life" in all its forms. A "cityfied" country boy who grew up on the west coast in the sixties and seventies with people who went their own way and lived off the grid most of the time, connected to the land and the sea, their many forms of artistic expression and each other.
As a result I have a profound tolerance and appreciation for whatever way a person wants to live, to be, to express themselves and to view the world. I value very highly, diversity and individualism, people who are not afraid to be different and to question anything they are led to question. I do the same all the time. Sometimes it gets me in trouble and sometimes it leads me to wonderful new experiences and people, but it's always worth it to be open to what ones intuition tells us.
I'm a person who can't wait to go on the next trip to immerse myself in a different culture and experience life throught their eyes, ears, mouth and spirituality.
I am a lot of fun and very spontaneous, especially when I get comfortable with you. My libra nature brings calm, balance and passion to the relationship and I approach it with an intention to know you, to understand you, to appreciate who you are and how you are wired, without trying to change you to suit me. I have learned to support my partners willingness to change at her pace and in her way.
I am confident, spiritual but far from religious, always growing and evolving, take good care of myself and those I care about, especially my family.
You want your partner to be your rock, your ear and your refuge, oh yeah, and the clown who makes you laugh & giggle all the while, don't you? That is who I am.
Consciously creating the life that I want rather than spending too much energy avoiding or fighting the things that I don't want, is where I'm at. That means that I know what kind of partner that I'm looking for far beyond "she must be attractive, like the outdoors, and be sincere".
You are: motivated by sincere appreciation for those things which life has granted to you, love children, know how to communicate and forgive and accept foregiveness, be open to just "being" and not always "doing". You aren't motivated by what you perceive others to want you do do or be, but rather by your own sense of purpose and inspiration, and ethical grounding in life. You are also funny, laugh at yourself a lot and enjoy being spontaneous...ie your life does not have to be pre-planned every day, every weekend, you enjoy looking out the window in the morning and being inspired by the sky!
"Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself
But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night
To know the pain of too much tenderness
To be wounded by your own understanding of love
And to bleed willingly and joyfully
To wake at dawn with a winger heart and give thanks for another day of loving
To rest at the noon hour and meditate loves ecstasy
To return home at eventide with gratitude
And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise
upon your lips"
Kahlil Gibran, from "The Prophet" one of my favorite writers/poets
What more can I say here? I'd rather talk than type so I'm going to leave it at that
for now....I hope to hear from you soon? Otherwise, enjoy your journey and tread lightly on this home of ours.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Why don't we go do something that peaks our imagination like do some photography, visit an interesting bookstore where we can be stimulated by books, ideas...and coffe! Or, take in the Monet to Dali exhibit, go shopping a bit and have fun trying things on hats and making faces! ;) you know see how the other person communicates? Then a walk on the beach or the park and talk about what we love to do outdoors. Then after we go somewhere quiet and comfy and have some dinner and a glass of Red!
