Also I really like journeys, mental and physical. A dream of mine is to tour Europe and the US in a van with the company of some good friends. Every time I try to articulate my concept of freedom or happiness, it involves that fantasy. There's something irresistible, almost archetypal about the idea of driving endlessly without a specific goal, surrounded by people you love unconditionally.
As for mental journeys, I have a very active imagination and fantasy life. This is an important part of me: if I don't give my imagination full freedom to express itself in some form from time to time, I feel extremely out of balance. As soon as I close my eyes, the darkness behind my lids becomes populated with characters and places. I am in love with my visions. It's definitely a part of me I'd want to share with my lovers.
Also, I really like art in general: I really enjoy going to art galleries and art museums. I especially like symbolist and surrealist art, although anything original is bound to interest me. I'm always searching for art which is shockingly honest, visionary, even crude and repulsive- anything as long as it's revolutionary and moving! I paint and draw myself, as well as write, mostly prose.
I adore the culinary world. Stimulating my palate with new flavors is orgasmic to my very sensitive taste buds. I'm absolutely a hedonist, and my love of food is definitely an expression of my passion for sensual experimentation. I really think eating is a spiritual practice, and a great way to connect and understand others. In fact, I always say that to really understand the soul of a country, one need only eat its food and make love to its people!
I love philosophy. I have a lot of personal ideas regarding life and spirituality: it would take too long to describe my personal philosophy here, but I like saying I'm an existentialist anarchist with a buddhist-hedonistic-mystic flavor. My spirituality is very personal and I live only by what I have learned from exploring my own heart (that's why I call myself an "anarchist").
I crave inner freedom. My whole spiritual outlook is heavily influenced by this very urgent personal need. I'm extremely introspective (waaay too much to be healthy, actually) because I feel self-knowledge is the basis for any kind of freedom. I am fiercely individualistic and independent. I can get very defensive if people try to control or dominate me (unless we're talking sex ;D). However, I am also very gentle and passionately affectionate. I try to be understanding and diplomatic at all times, so you'll never see me yelling or insulting others, even when I'm upset.
I love discussing philosophy with open-minded people, and I integrate my views with other people's perspectives all the time. In fact, I love tweaking my 'beliefs', and really enjoy people who can provide unorthodox answers to life's questions.
In general, I really love experimenting and pushing mental boundaries. I will fall madly in love with people who can blow my mind. Give me something I haven't yet considered! This is what thrills me.
On a side note- I'm a dual citizen (Italy and USA) and I go back and forth between the two countries all the time. I'm very flexible when it comes to moving around and living full-time in the States is definitely an option.
