Since moving to British Columbia, nothing has been more important than surrounding myself with nature. I care more about sunsets than possessions. At the end of our lives, will we wish we had played more Farmville, spent more time on the internet, made more money? Reaching the end of a challenging hike, standing atop a mountain staring out over a vast landscape, now that’s living.
I’m a scientist at heart, always wondering, always questioning. Concepts and ideas are the crux of life. I’m looking to meet people who are not afraid to think outside of the social “norms” that western society has imposed on us. People willing to have discussions that extend beyond the surface experiences of everyday life. We live in a culture of instant gratification, but the most important things in life take time. To that end I am trying to be more patient and present, not lingering in past or future, neither of which really exist. It isn’t easy.
This is where I am right now. Take it or leave it.
