I have a passion for creative movement arts (Dancing, Gymnastics, Martial Arts, Capoeria, Stage Combat) and any creative expression related to freedom of movement. I adore the crafting of stories and weaving of words (writing, acting, role-play). I'm a geek, a gamer and an open minded liberal. I'm into historical swordplay/fencing. I read a lot, mostly Fantasy or Sci-fi and enjoy writing in those genera as well. I adore felines and have been described as a bit catlike myself for traits like my insatiable curiosity. I am not afraid to ask questions and am honest to a fault. I've practiced transcendental meditation for most of my life, spent a great deal of time exploring philosophy (both eastern and western) and am fascinated with the way the mind works and the study of thought and perception (Epistemology, psychology, logic, Vedic Science). I'm very interested in holistic healing modalities and how the mind, body and spirit work in harmony.
Because such things seem to inevitably come up and some people consider it a priority in who they are willing to date, I'll say now that I'm not part of any organised religion. Two of my best friends are an Atheist and a Protestant, I stood in their wedding, clearly sharing the same Faith is not a prerequisite for love. My spiritual beliefs are a personal eclectic mix: integrating several different faiths, philosophies and outlooks, drawing on what speaks to me as truth from each. Overall it's probably closer to a lot of Eastern thought than it is to any of the Abrahamic religions. I'm rather open-minded and don't expect anyone else to believe the same as I do and enjoy intellectual civil debate about various spiritual paths.
I am a 'hopeless romantic' and have lived a full enough life to suffer my fair share of heartbreak. I'd like to think it's helped me grow into a caring, understanding and patient lover, willing to put in the time and effort to make things work.
