I'm one of them.
Someone said that we are our dreams, that if we do not dream, we are dead. I am runner, an adventurer, an explorer, an artist, a poet, a dancer, roadtrip taker, bookworm, nerd, goofball and lover of great smiles and loud beautiful laughter: a dreamer.
I feel very passionate about running, I put my blood sweat and tears into it daily; I love to run. Every new day is a beautiful day to be alive and if you decide you want to do something well, you should do it with your whole heart. That is art.
Things I love: all things ridiculous, nights where you meet someone new and talk forever into the night, used bookstores, sex, love, politics, mountains, trees, the ocean at night, romance, New Orleans, Big Sur, pies, rain storms, working with my hands, living by my heart, Mexican restaurants & margaritas... meeting someone great when you least expected it.
I think that though all adventures are great, the greatest adventure is the adventure of love.
There is not a bit of cowardice here, my heart is on my sleeve. My head very often in the gutter.
I'm fairly simple; I believe in love and loyalty, in saying what you think what you feel and being honest with your words, true with your heart, and passionate in your life. Kindness is big with me, life is hard for a lot of people, no need to make it harder. It costs you nothing, and yet it has value.
When it comes to love, I think, at the end of time, if I were to ask the woman whom I have loved- Is your heart full? And if she were to take my hand and look into my eyes and say- Yes.Then I'd have accomplished something far more than just meager success, I'd have done something truly great. Because isn't it a thing of immense beauty to have contributed to the happiness of another's life in this world?
In the end, I guess I want what we all want; a bit of magic in a world that often times seems to have lost all magic; to have shared this life with someone who inspired love and living and the better man in me, inspiration not only in our dreams and goals but in wanting to leave the world a little better than how we found it, in living life more robustly than how we imagined it could be lived.
To know what it means to be alive and in love. To leave nothing reserved but to dance, dream, think, say, be, burn, learn, and grow. To be wildly me, passionately, whatever I may be or become. This is what I want. And maybe to win the Pulitzer and Nobel prizes ;)
