A couple of weeks ago I was:
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.
I'm in my little nest, listening to the rain on the skylight.
As you will have already deduced, I stick stuff on here when the fancy strikes me, which is very occasionally.
Looking for unusual, genuine, smart, adventuresome and attractive. Why not shoot high? Improbable unpredictable chemistry? Of course I really have no idea. Love that rare moment of enjoyment and attraction from wherever it comes. Backpacking. Music. Sailing. Travel. Asia. Reading. Irreverence. Economics. Education. Walking out the door and thinking "that's so amazing, and right outside". And, first, 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. Mostly not a dress up guy. Tux? No. Suit not worn often. Yoshi's, bluegrass, blues, rock, symphony etc. I like good restaurants. 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 fashion, but am genetically (although not educationally, never went to church) an Irish Catholic. Ex hippie, but so not a hippie since the early 70s. I'm low maintenance but would love to have the company of an interesting and charming 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. 20,000 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. Things we're not supposed to admit?.
