I'm originally from Atlanta, but made my way out to Cali in the summer of 2011 and now regard SF as the promised land. However, I will always be a southerner. I miss the seasons and to an extent hearing diphthongs, (eg: Outdoors = Outdaawrs). Fun.
I'm fairly active - love biking in the country and running around Lake Merritt, as well as Redwood Regional in the Oakland hills. I also do a good bit of music composition and recording at home. Otherwise, long dinners are fun, stimulating conversation, wine, etc.
I like this;
“As I contemplate the blue of the sky … I abandon myself to it and plunge into this mystery, it ‘thinks itself within me,’ I am the sky itself as it is drawn together and unified, and as it begins to exist for itself; my consciousness is saturated with this limitless blue … ” (Merleau-Ponty, 1962).
