-I'm really 58 and changed my age to get included in searches up to 55. I look, act and feel like a 45 year old.
Update Spring 2014:
A Clarion Call to The Like-Minded
I’m finally doing it. This year I’m selling my business and house and plan to go on an extended road trip through the US, probably ending up on the west coast then down the coast to Nicaragua where I’m looking at the possibility of setting up a retreat with friends. I’ve known that I needed to do this for a long time now and have only recently summoned up the courage and faith to do so. The recent passing of Maya Angelou and her ideas about not just surviving but thriving sum up why I need to do this. All I have been doing for the last several years is existing and leading a restrained life of caution. If this is all there is then I say “It’s not enough, and I need more”! So I’m throwing off the bowlines and setting my ship to sail wherever the wind takes me. I could drive anywhere in North America actually, and that’s the point of this wanderlust experiment. I’m completely open to new experiences and want to explore, embrace new adventures, and make new connections. Yoga and Intentional Communities, Starbuck’s, Couch Surfing, and anywhere where I can meet interesting people and experience new thoughts, feelings, and ideas are the driving force behind this radical but necessary shift in my approach to life.
If any of this resonates for you get in touch, share you thoughts, and perhaps we can meet up. Open to suggestions, new ideas and places to visit and settle.
I'm on this web site to see if I can find someone that has a mutual connection with me leading to my goal of a meaningful relationship. I'm not here to use this site for chatting. I see it only as a tool. If you are serious about meeting up in person after only a very few emails then please message me. I'd love to hear from you!
I am engaging, energetic and enthusiastic about life (most of the time).
I approach life from a position of wonderment and adventure. I yearn for greater experiences that allow me to connect with people, places, feelings, and ideas. What I'm missing is the presence of a partner to share this with.
I'm driven to get to the heart/truth of the matter, to fully understand it and my part in it even when it’s painful. I find pretence and subtext tiresome. I'm energized and love it when someone is open minded and emotionally brave and I strive to continue advancing in these areas. I work at being aware of my own issues so that I can chose to let them go and be fully present. Sometimes I’m excellent at it and sometimes I need some help. Either way I'm ready to hear respectful feedback and have developed the ability to laugh at my imperfections.
I am one of the bravest people I know. Not bungie jumping brave but the kind of brave that is willing to look at how and why I resist. The kind of brave that is about making connection. All of this is based on the fact that life is short and if I'm to embrace my creative expression of self, grow, and contribute to my community then I'll need to move past these limitation.
I am an eternal seeker, looking for the deeper meaning within each moment.
I need someone who is emotionally open and willing and able to meet me. If you are emotionally guarded or defended please pass me by.
My two most favorite quotes:
I do my thing and you do your thing.
I am not in this world to live up to your expectations,
And you are not in this world to live up to mine.
You are you, and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, it's beautiful.
If not, it can't be helped.
Fritz Perls, 1969
There are those who look at things the way they are, and ask why... I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?
I am present, available, and thoughtful
