People in my life describe me as easy going, empathetic, light on drama, a relaxed perfectionist, and I would add, as equally enthused about being on a remote mountain as staying at home to read a book or off on the next quest for a new adrenaline rush. I have always been something of a wallflower in groups but love one-on-one conversations. I can tolerate most forms of music and really enjoy some, mostly classical, international, and political.
I am quirky, serious, and artistic
Not that I am partictulary good at any of it mind you, I just love to move to music and am willing to work at it.
What I am not doing that eats at me, is making music, and spending time in the wild. We shall see if I can bring myself to give up enough dancing to get out of town this summer.

Music: The bands come and go. I really liked Consolidated back in the day. And Deep Forest, Enigma, and the Gypsy Kings. Most any world beat really. And I just discovered Abney Park. We shall see how long they hold my interest. But Bach and Beethoven are forever.
Food: I have been a strict vegetarian for most of my life. But with that restriction noted, I will eat most anything. With an extra fondness for Thai. I am not really a foodie, mostly just thinking of it as fuel, until forced to endure long periods of eating crap. Then I go stir crazy and get pretty snobby about what I will eat.
Are we already too late to save the planet? How fast will civilization collapse?
