Too often I say something that feels real, but than feel compelled to qualify what I say because it feels misleading. I feel my words make me sound like a traditional romanticist. I am not. I am not polyamorous, but at the same time feel that a deep trusting and giving relationship makes room for the exploration of self, desires, and dreams. To me, loyalty is huge. It is not about rules, but about heart. I would love to be at a deeply connected and open place where trust was a non-issue. When there is real trust and connection, I feel same exploring our deepest dreams and fantasies.
I get my greatest joy out of doing and experiencing new things. I enjoy morning jogs, gym workout, hiking mountain peaks and desert canyons. I appreciate the journey, but do enjoy the challenge of the destination. I have hiked Whitney, Half Dome, and the Grand Canyon rim-to-rim. That said, I love to read and learn.
I am attracted to those with similar qualities of curiosity, adventurousness, openness, cerebral, cultural, physical, and have a chronically youthful soul.
There are a lot of things I do not do that I aspire to. I would love to be a great dancer. I love watching Tango, and would love to be able learn to get lost in that sensuous place without ending up on America's Funniest Videos. I would love to hike the Pacific Crest Trail just like Cheryl Strayed, but would also like to explore the planet, nature at its wildest, and humans in the most creative and passionate states. I love the National Parks and the local mountain trails (though less so at the moment as I recover from a mountain biking accident).
As much a cringe admitting this, I do love technology, and technology is my friend. I love social media, not as a way of narcissistic exhibitionism, but as a tool. I love my Twitter feed. It brings me all the stories of life, news, and experience of people who inspire me right to me. I love artistic tools that allow me to express myself, dig into my feelings, share, experience, and learn.
