I'm vagabond of sorts and have done this stuff a long time, coming and going from Portland. You don't have to be this way. Forty hour, year-round work left me burned out and unfulfilled and a new life emerged. Hobbies, volunteering, self-improvement, home projects keep me busy.
Recent life events have me challenging thoughts about people and lifestyle: who belongs in or out of my circle; boundaries, possessions, monogamy vs. non-monogamy, fears, more. It's good to challenge and refresh one's beliefs. I'm drawn to connections, learning about people, understanding and letting time resolve the eventual direction.
My interests go far beyond the outdoors, jeez I'm in my 50's -- I can remodel a bathroom, read some history, create something in my workshop, distinguish art nouveau from art deco, name the notes of a minor 7th chord, and definitely know better than pitch to David Ortiz on a 3-0 count. I clean up in trivial pursuit.
I'm actually pretty light-hearted. I giggle at little nothings throughout the day. I smile and nod to others when I’m out running.
I won't mug for the camera and desecrate an inspirational view by striking a yoga pose.
