My goals are to be happy, learn, write, and travel - in that order. I value creativity, open-mindedness, efficiency, mindfulness, liberty, uncommon-sense, wisdom, and health - not in any particular order.
First of all I am looking for new friends in a new city. If something more develops then all the better.
I am looking for someone who kicks-ass at whatever they do, is willing to teach what they know, is peaceful, mindful of others, seeking to get in better touch with their self, wants to experience new things, is a student of life, is open to new ideas, is comfortable with their and other people's sexuality, likes to travel on little budget, creates more then they consume, eats healthy and stays active.
I spend a significant amount of my free time writing. I have a novel in the works as well as many other projects including screenplays, short stories, TV scripts, and children books. Recently I have been concentrating on finishing some of these. I have a tendency to be working on one project and then get a new great idea and then switch my focus. The result is lots of different pieces all making slow progress.
Some things I enjoy: hockey, seasons, cooking without recipes, bartering, blue cheese, my typewriter, sunrises, foliage, couchsurfing, owls, hand percussion instruments, shiny things, tiny things, the aurora borealis, thunderstorms, sailing, figs, knots, new foods, vocabulary, grammar, elephants, flotation, lucid dreams, metaphysics, thinking, baths, nature, the ocean, shorelines, tides, new socks, fantasy sports (it's a vice), hats, tea, post-modern novels, to be continued...
I am not without my quirks and flaws. That being said, I make a conscious effort to identify these and make changes towards being the man I wish to be.
I read often, on lots of different subjects (thanks wikipedia), which can manifest as being a bit of a know-it-all when having a conversation. I have no shortage of antidotes or fun facts that I have picked up along the way. I am actively working to improve my listening skills.
I like to consider myself as adventurous. I am a firm believer in experiencing the world NOW, while we are young, and not waiting until retirement. I like to travel to places I have never been to meet new people and learn about their culture. I most recently spent the summer living in Costa Rica. I have also lived and worked on a private sailing yacht in the Caribbean. I have been known to take many extended road trips. Although I have undertook most of these adventures alone or with a good friend I would relish the opportunity to do so with a partner whom I love.
