I would like to learn to speak French or Esperanto but it's hard to feel motivated without anyone to practice with. I really would like to be fluent in at least a few languages.
I try to pratice Epicurean Hedonism, that is to say, seeking out pleasure but with an eye towards balance. "Send me a [slice] of cheese that I might have a feast." ~Epicurus It's about enjoying everything in just the right measure. ;-)
Although I often feel misanthropic, I am a humanist. And have a strong respect for human rights. Dictators, fascists and any who would oppress another human are at the top of my personal mortal enemies list.
I am in a relationship with a wonderful woman whom I love and admire. We have been together for many years but aren't married and don't have any plans to get married in the future. We feel that relationships should be private affairs not subject to governmental interference. Living without a marriage contract means that we know that we are together because we both choose to be, because we are happy together, and not because we are in any way obliged to keep the status quo.
I should hope that it is obvious by now that I am in an open relationship. I have many reasons to live this sort of lifestyle but it really just boiles down to a bit of spirituality and a bit of logic. I love my little bird and simply couldn't stand to see her caged. Wild things must be free. As for the logic, we just don't feel that we are ready (and may never be) to have children and a family of our own. But two people cannot live life alone no matter how close they are. People need to interact on a larger scale. We are simply built this way. And so here I am, seeking friendships of various kinds and depths. I don't know what I might find but I am curious to find out.
