Been playing seriously for a couple of years. Blues guitar, electric.
Backpacking. Music. Travel. Asia. Reading. Irreverence. Economics. Education. Walking out the door and thinking "that's so amazing, and right outside". And my kids.
Programmer back in the day. worked on a drill rig on an island off the coast of British Columbia, Traveled. Tibet, China, etc. Did tons of other things.
Often found in jeans. Yoshi's, bluegrass, blues, rock, symphony etc. I like socializing and parties, but kind of low key about it. I’m happy with my life and I don’t get upset about things. I'm really fortunate in having great kids with whom I have close friendships. I have practiced zen meditation since I was 18, in a relaxed, on & off fashion, but am genetically (although not educationally, never went to church) an Irish Catholic. Ex hippie, but not a hippie since the early 70s. I'm low maintenance. I'd love to have the company of an interesting and wonderful woman. So, cup of coffee? Glass of wine? Take a look? I remember fondly when I was young, and love would happen spontaneously, just walking around. The invention of the microwave was a wonderful thing, but in some other ways I long for the simpler world of my youth.
Me- combination of intensely concrete and intensely theoretical. Casual, well educated and thoughtful. I live in the woods surrounded by park. 10,000 acre back yard. Thank you EBRPD. But 10 minutes from west Berkeley. Anyway, we all can get up each day, look around, and say "ah, another day in paradise". Let's email or, better, chat over a cup or glass of something. Damn, it's hard to get this stuff into the little wire that goes between my computer and yours.
Point Reyes? Sierras? Vancouver Island west coast beaches? Born and raised in the northeast and midwest. Can't go back after living in California. And Oregon, and BC.
I use OK Cupid for those book recommendations more than dates. Probably be good to check out my "questions" before you conclude that I"m mellow and kind of normal. Sorry about that. Gotta update the profile.
Different times; Just back from 4 days on the PCT north of Kings Canyon.
Just back from a couple of trips through Desolation, the parts nobody goes to.
Just back from a 3 day backpacking trip east of Lassen. How many stars at night? Lots more than 50,000?
Just back from a 3 day backpacking trip in Desolation. Sounds so desolate, but wonderful (missed the fires). The high Sierras are a lifelong better universe.
