I try to keep my life grounded. I remain casual to a fault. I've worked in education for twenty-years. I possess a soft-spoken and kind of Zen qualities (I am not a Buddhist). In a past life I sold my paintings in a few mid-range galleries.
Sincere compliments and laughing at my jokes and smiles are the gifts I value most in others. I enjoy serendipitous journeys through thoughtful conversations or curious locations. Though I often exploit opportunities to provoke a laugh or take a bunny-trail during conversations. I like things simple, I keep a few clothes and don’t own anything that might be called a “man toy,” especially, if it’s loud, on wheels, or has the word “jet” in its description. However, I keep camping gear in or near my midsize SUV for spontaneous getaways. I am hoping to attend the Jackson Browne concert this Fall and travel to LA in the Spring to see Daivd Giolmour.
I do have an eye toward a long-term relationship, but for now, conversing with new people and exploring their world is my main interest.
I read non-fiction. Live music is best. I have a diverse taste in music. In general I don't care for most of popular music today that lacks that "hand-made" and genuine quality. I can do adventure movies, but like documentaries and usually anything that rates high among critics has something for me. I do like discovering hidden gems.
