Winter is dug in and I’m thinking of sunshine. It could be sun over snowshoes, sun reflecting off a beautiful warm beach, sun shining through a coffee shop window onto the pages of a book, sun lighting up a hiking path, sun warming the pavement in the city. I'd just like it to shine in my vicinity! Last week, on a 30' morning, I opened my balcony doors and put my bicycle trainer right in front of them so I could ride in the sunshine. (It worked! Sunglasses, tank top, heat, sweat, muscles, tan, Ahhhh…)
What are you doing to get through winter? Ski trips? Tickets to warmer climates? The Gym? Lots and lots of movies? Projects? Very serious poetry? Chocolate?
I like to do and try new, fun things. For me, life is kind of one big adventure. And it doesn’t matter whether I’m doing small, quiet things or I’m being active, because ‘adventure’ is really a way of looking at the world. It’s being open to the experience. So floating down the Colorado River, cycling through Tuscany, or exploring a city is Adventure. So is simply trying a new route to work, reading a new book, noticing the clouds before a storm, watching a lizard, or looking at stars.
Adventure is also experiencing another person on a deeper level. And I am looking to share life with someone who is my best friend, playmate, and lover: You can talk with your best friend about almost anything because you respect each other; you have great fun and play well together when you're good playmates, and just a simple touch from your lover gets your attention. But most important, you LIKE each other. I believe that when there are the inevitable bumps, problems and sticky places along the way, if we have those four things going for us, we’ll work through anything that comes along.
That’s my philosophy, anyway. And that’s the kind of person I’m looking for. I love a guy with a curious mind, a great sense of humor, and a relaxed, genuine way with people. I’m attracted to slightly geeky guys because they’re interested in many things (and, honestly, because I’m slightly geeky, too). I’m very fit (although not a superb athlete), active, outdoorsy, reflective, healthy and playful. If you are too, I would love to hear from you!
