You're a slightly goofy hopeless idealist cemented in realism.
You feel deeply and strongly about things. You have strong opinions and a passion for *something*. You want to share - to teach (me). You're creative and a little edgy. I love self-expression. Be comfortable in silence. Be comfortable being open and present.
Once in a while be comfortable eating with your hands. Once in a while be comfortable eating your own words.
Don't get me wrong - bugging out and being sad is perfectly acceptable. If you don't do it sometimes something isn't right with your universe.
Random stuff about me:
I grew up on the east coast (NY) and went to college smack in the middle of the country (Iowa). I love the bay area but miss New England's seasons - the smells and colors - wood smoke, apple picking and maple syrup candy.
I'm nostalgic but teaching myself to purge. I'm pretty idealistic. I put down deep roots.
I've seen a tornado and been through the eye of a hurricane.
I've floated on my back in the Dead Sea and watched the full moon rise above the hills of Jordan to the east (magnificent) only to have the experience interrupted by 4 IAF F-18s split the air above my head.
In the summer of 1977 my Dad and I were on the Long Island Railroad on our way to a Mets game when the great blackout hit. NYC shut down for three days. It was really hot on that train.
I remain to this day a pretty intense baseball fan (A's).
I'm getting back into skiing a finally bought a Tahoe season pass.
I hate the sound of mosquitoes buzzing around my room.
Eggplant makes my mouth feel prickly but I love babaganush.
Sometimes my house is messy.
I've mountain biked Nepal and Sri Lanka. I've been all over Europe, to Israel, New Zealand (2x) and to 48 states - all but but Alaska and N. Dakota.
I appreciate BRC as much for forcing me to shut down all electronics for a week as I love it for its self expression and the kindred spirits in my 40 person camp.
At 24 I drove from Key West to San Francisco in 45 hours (accompanied). Beaumont, Texas is an awfully long way from El Paso, Texas.
I think that's enough.
