Trying to get more wow in my life again. Fun too. Looking for like
minded exploring buddies to enjoy life. You get more out of it when
you see things through multiple sets of eyes. Bending and
questioning your perspective is a good thing.
I like architecture, museums including modern, good food and
, some shopping,
and any opportunity to see how the rest of the world is making
happy. I've been to Paris, south west of Ireland (finally), South
Africa (want to go to Stellenbosch again), Beijing, China (1x only
thx), South East England, Edinburgh, Oban, Glasgow, Paris, Munich,
Sydney and Melbourne Australia, Taipei, Switzerland (Zurich,
Innsbruck, Interlaken, Davos), lots of the US.... all in the last
few years. I love to drive - having driven across the US 7 times
(all the major east west routes except 10 - too damned hot). This
might make me crazy or just a great road tripper. Case in point - a
10 day, 3600mile circuit from San Francisco to Cody, Wyoming -
through Grand Teton and Yellowstone, doing top-down wide open
speeding on highway 50 - quite possibly my new favorite road. I
have a convertible that I love in all weathers above 30F.
I took a year to explore what I might want post-tech - relaxed,
learned a little about how to build houses, barns
, and stone walls, and spending some
time getting in touch with a 3D as opposed to virtually driven
world. I took a week working with a team to cut a 22'x32' hammer
beam lofted barn out of white pine - with chisels and a circular
saw. Still building out my nest again - 3rd time in 5 years. Went
back to work August 09, tech program manager for a large internet
company. No, not that one. Trying this time to do it with a little
more definition between the job and me.
Somewhere in there I'll be reading, cooking
, hiking, sailing
, and generally enjoying myself.
