I also spend my time reading books, (fiction and non-fiction), watching films, (dramas and documentaries), sharing coffee shop conversations with friends, enjoying good food & wine, (love going for brunch), going to the farmers market, art galleries, gardening on my rooftop deck, going for a leisurely walk/hike/cycle preferably in a forest or near water. I enjoy learning, and going to talks, workshops, courses. I also volunteer at a community art gallery.
I am very laid back and easy going.... yet very curious. I do ask questions, and I am a great listener, as I am genuinely interested in people.
I am very independent, perhaps too much so at times, so "interdependence" is what I'm aiming for. I would love to meet someone who could start off as a good friend, and perhaps lead to more.
I like this quote by Martha Beck:
"Buddha once said that just as we can know the ocean because it always tastes of salt, we can recognize enlightenment because it always tastes of freedom. There's no essential difference between real love and enlightenment. While many people see commitment as a trap, its healthy versions actually free both lovers, bring out the flavor of their true selves, and build a love that is satisfying, lasting, and altogether delicious."
