Wannabe artist, aspiring wordsmith. Sorta nerdy, but hip. Tries to avoid bad taste but--sigh--sometimes just can't avoid it. Talented photographer who loves to share skills. Sings (badly) in the truck. Lover of animals. Places a high value on trust and respect, would appreciate reciprocation. Honest, moral, ethical, responsible, and clean (ditto). It doesn't have to be new, but it does need to be clean. Former bicycle mechanic recovering lost skills, and avid cyclist (I don't race. I'll typically ride 20-50 miles or more, but I won't compete with you unless you specifically ask me to. I know the difference between riding "together" and riding "at the same time," and I know which I'd rather do ). Loves nature and the outdoors. Self-deprecating. Trying to focus on friendship before anything else.
A word about my diet: I try to keep it healthy, but I DO let myself indulge. All too often.
And about my education: I graduated high school and from there it's been all over the place: a tiny bit of college, Marine Corps schools, union apprenticeship, photography class.... I'm not an academic, but I am intelligent and I like to learn.
And YOU! If you have any of the traits I mentioned about myself, that's a plus... though you don't need to precisely mirror me (that might be weird). Think about the things you say, and listen to others! Love deeply, fully. Be aware, and pay attention to not only the world around you, but also to yourself and your place in the world.
I should also mention that yes, I've looked at your profile thirty-ish times. I'm very sorry if you're uncomfortable about that, but there's no hidden agenda. When I'm thinking about details (like when I'm considering if I want to write to you, and all that could follow), the repetition helps me to remember details. I can't help it. It's how I'm wired.
By the way, I'm totally cool with you initiating contact here ;) Feel free to write!
