I'm flattered that a woman wrote this to me: "I realize that the way you speak your truth and how you seem open to the mysteries all around us is what I am drawn to in you. You seem so comfortable with getting close and really showing up. I just want to tell you how refreshing and special that is for me to be around."
A lifetime Right Coaster, I originally came west to assist at personal growth workshops for the Human Awareness Institute (www.hai.org). The Bay area's rich variety of growth opportunities (and weather!) kept drawing me back. I'm excited by how much there is to learn out here about myself and my relationship towards others. I recently moved permanently, and am now deepening connections and exploring this beautiful region.
So what else can I tell you about me? My world is expanding daily and I'm growing by leaps and bounds...for me the glass is 3/4 full!
I'm in great shape and health. My friends made sure that I joined them hiking Mt. Katahdin in Maine, and it was quite a challenge in the rain - have you ever climbed up a waterfall?
For me, almost every day is filled with new adventures. A while back I solo-explored Ecuador and would love to share with you the amazing photos I took in The Galapagos. And had you joined me on the drive to CA you would have seen the over-the-top Christmas lights exhibition in Tulsa, the sun igniting the rocks in Sedona, and a light snow nestled quietly on Painted Desert.
I'm keenly aware that life is short and I'm thrilled at how I've blossomed over the past few years. I'd love for you to join me on this adventure. Where would YOUR dreams lead us?
Music brings me to a state of bliss, especially rock and Jambands, and also blues, jazz, classical, and folk. I love going to concerts at intimate clubs like Ashkenaz or festivals such as Dead On The Creek in Willits and JazzFest in New Orleans. I see Stu Allen frequently, as well as such varied performers as Amanda Palmer, Arlo Guthrie, Pat Metheny, Nellie McKay, Phish, Santana, and Springsteen.
Food? Italian, Mexican, Asian, bagels & pizza from NY, cheese steaks from Philly, and life would be a gustatory shadow without great ice cream!
Also, I've lowered my age on the profile by 4 years to open up to women who specify a younger age range. I believe most people aren't precise when stating age ranges, and I play younger than my years. If you do have a firm boundary I respect that.
You have reached goals and are happy with who you are. You're independent, financially secure, and have some close, supportive friends. You realize that I can't make you happy, but that I can provide a compassionate ear and honest, caring support. Together we can enrich and bring joy to each other's lives.
