Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"Two heads are better than one ... for getting lost, planning, and
just about anything in life". Looking for my counterpart for
outdoor travel adventures and navigating thru the rest of life.
Must know which way is North - not necessarily up - and not run
faster than me with a bear in hot pursuit ( kidding).
I have traveled extensively and have been fortunate to have lived
in various parts of Europe, Middle East, New Zealand and even
visited the Antarctica. I have eclectic tastes and tend to be an
“out of the box” type of thinker. As a MB type, I would be an
E/INFJ-– I’m intuitive, care about people, and believe in humanity
I believe in the "one earth, one people" concept and European view
of "working to live" vs US view of "living to work"! I blend in
well with most situations-- I'm house trained and you can take me
out! (I know, it sounds like I'm talking about my dog!) I tend to
do the "off the beaten path" type of trips but I am starting to
learn to appreciate the "tour guide/camera over the neck" types
also-- it's a wonder what maturity (i.e., old age) will do for
I’m not into sports but I do appreciate talent. I choose
indie/foreign films over the Hollywood types. I love sushi and rock
n roll, but not together. I’m politically and religiously neutral
most of the time – but don’t get me started!
I am actually very grateful and feel blessed (not in the
way) that I have been able to be where and what I am today. I value
communication, commitment, compromise in a relationship and the
core values of honesty, integrity, and compassion in living an
authentic life! I've lived on the block most people have "been
around" and rarely walked away from "fighting the good
I am looking for the un/usual - joy of life and sense of self.
Baggage even the airline type should be limited. Melodrama should
be on the screen/TV - where it can be turned off! Everything else
is negotiable! I presently split my time between Cupertino and San
Francisco ( still have a house in the Outer Sunset/Ocean Beach
area) and haven't decide which to call home?? You could be the
9/2014 update - I have now officially moved back to SF. no more
long commutes to Cupertino! 8~)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Often at odds with authority, bruised and battered after "fighting
the good fight"! Trying to live with integrity and still believe in
the goodness in people! Also more recently, thinking how great it
would be to be labeled an "expat" in Europe! 8~}
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Everything and nothing! The hardest is being good at nothing - it's
very elusive. It'll take a lot of practice and effort but for now,
I'll give it a try! Living the "authentic life" and also being
upfront with people and intuitive!
The first things people usually notice about me

My smile and presence! Or as above - more recently, maybe my
"absence" ! 8~}

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Hard to answer since I'm not sure there's anything that truly
into that category at present. You could top the list!
The "things" that I value however - passion and compassion,
needless to say - kindness, integrity, authenticity, and may be -
intuition/empathy ( could be a curse though!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
our crazy world and paradigm shifts! how do we get our humanity
back! and where will I go next on my trip (and more recently,
should I come back)!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Recently no real typical Friday nights or even days for that
matter! Like they say - I'll tell you later once I get some
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
that I am a product of our society and all too human! Even though I
am an ABC, I'm more of an A than a C

compassion for all living things! And as above again - you might
like living in another country on a part time basis! 8~}
