About Me
A heart in love with beauty never grows old
Let the beauty we love be what we do and see.

I'm looking for a friend, a confidante, someone who might like to moondance, explore Vancouver and the world, hike the North Gully, take in an exhibit at the Teck, watch an early morning English soccer game at Abruzzo, loll about in a very small boat, make a little romance (possibly in that same very small boat), discuss the days events (passionately) ... someone to make a little history with. Someone to ask - Prête-moi tes yeux pour voir tes visions (http://youtu.be/tkV1W_4-bjc) ... and someone to lmao with. Not looking to push the river. No agenda, just a heart open to finding love. If you are open to seeing where things lead, if you don't need to know what's around the next corner, if you prefer the scenic route, as a start, then please read on.

Bohemian, vital, gentle, passionate, thoughtful, considerate and wry ... and occasionally awry:) I will hold a door open for anyone and hate people when they're not polite. I like to enjoy the finer things in life and by that I don't mean the usual trio of suspects - fancy restaurants, expensive wines and posh hotels, but family and friends, connecting with strangers and fast motorcycles, oops, I mean spontaneous generosity (kind of like Scrooge at the end of A Christmas Carol). I also enjoy both types of humour: Dry (witty) and Wet (where you piss yourself laughing) and like bright people; especially when they're bright enough to let you figure that out for yourself. And if you hadn't noticed, I'd rather be silly than uptight. I can also dress myself nicely without any help.

As a true sagittarian, I am a lover of life and would rather regret something I did, and apologize for it later, than regret not having tried at all. I'm not going to feed you a bunch of clichés about being as young as you feel. Instead I'll repeat what I started with - I am vital, passionate and very full of life. If you are spontaneity-challenged, then I'm not for you.

Although I have flirted with buddhism in the past, I am a content atheist at heart. I am a spiritual person, but tend to reject things that come with a "spiritual" label ('spiritual' music for instance - bleh!!). I have no trouble at all in finding the sublime in mountains, music, people, art, science, the ocean. All can inspire awe and gratitude. At any rate, I love the mountains and the water and have a background that gives me a special appreciation for both. This love of the outdoors, however, does not extend to golf ... or 'sport?' fishing (something I really don't get the point of).

Music is a huge passion. All of it. It's in our DNA. Try typing to La Valse d'Amélie and you'll see what I mean. I like Grinderman and Chopin (and almost everything in between) and try to take in as many live shows as I can. I'm still smiling from seeing Bonobo twice last year. There is a line in a song of theirs that I love - "Happiness is on her face; it's the man that greets her". Here's the link ... http://youtu.be/3wxJu-X0zVo Enjoy. As for dancing ... don't get me started unless you're ready to make a night of it.

Other passions ... PDA's, EDA's, Harper's magazine, environmentalism, activism, CBC radio, food, film (http://youtu.be/Au02p8huOuU), English humour, non-fiction, footy (see DNA comment above).
And my favourite saying - "Don't Panic"

Other than fit, fun, lighthearted and curious, I'm not going to spell you out - surprise me.
Also ... I have two kids of my own that are pretty much grown; if you have kids of any age that's totally cool.

Cheers and good luck.

Dating shouldn't be an eeny meeny miny mo process. All those wonderful intangibles that are present in person, like smell, touch, vibe, glances (tender or awkward) are absent here on the shopping channel. We are left to small pictures, words, and our intuition. A hunch. If your hunch tells you I probably wrote my profile while soaking in a tub of lime jello and that I'm not for you, so be it. Likewise if you think we might hit it off and I don't reply, then mine is probably saying something similar. All that to say that no hard feelings will be taken ... and none given.
