My self-summary
Bob Dylan once sang, "The country I come from is called the Midwest." Definitely me--in my case the St. Louis area, despite having left it many many years ago (like 1980s!). But I've also called Alaska, Chile, Oregon, North Carolina, France, New York, California, Montana, and a few places in between home at various points in my life too. Washington is a place I have come back to frequently--four times now. What else? Curious. Healthy. Fit. Unorthodox. Often-times stubborn, mainly because going against the flow requires a certain amount of stubbornness.
What I’m doing with my life
Hopefully making a difference one day at a time and being mindful of every moment that I've got. Sometimes this can be a challenge, but the journey is very rewarding. For what it matters, I am now working in public health.
I’m really good at
Dancing (Afro-Brazilian of late), running, swimming (my new passion), cooking, making connections in far off places with complete strangers, trying things that challenge me.
The first things people usually notice about me
My ears stick out. They come from my grandpa. I like them a lot. And I like to smile when I feel good.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: Groundhog Day (perfection), Chungking Express (defines cool), The Shawshank Redemption (when I need a pick me up), Casablanca (must I explain), Raiders of the Lost Ark (as a kid I wanted to be like this), Lawrence of Arabia (desert mirage, much more), The Unbearable Lightness of Being (fell hard for this when it came out).
Books: Kon-Tiki: Across the Pacific in a Raft, Life on the Mississippi, Never Cry Wolf, any good poem that rhymes, and so much more.
Music: Duke Ellington famously said: If it sounds good, it is good. That means I have an incredibly eclectic music collection. By the way, Duke is good. Live music tastes have leaned to Seattle's vibrant west African music scene of late.
Food: Pasta and my brilliant red sauce, a fresh salad with a vinaigrette, and, on occasion, red wine, is one of my favs. Mainly anything wholesome, minimally processed, spicy, and fresh. You won't find junk or processed food in my cupboards or fridge.
The six things I could never do without
My three alarm clocks. My running shoes. My bikes (all three of them especially my beater road bike). My passport. My cameras (all of them including my beloved analog Nikons and Leica). My friends. My life story.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
That today is the only day that counts, and that I need to live today as if it were the only day I have in this life.
On a typical Friday night I am
First and foremost, winding down a long week exercising around Greenlake, or maybe Discovery Park. Then......
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
This isn't private, but I figured folks should know: I am adopted--a rare club of the mythical, famous, and perhaps even infamous. As some might say, you may not understand unless you're in that tribe.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 30–48
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You think that people are like onions and are revealed slowly, layer upon layer upon layer. If you enjoy getting muddy while exercising, that's a huge plus. If you're a cowgirl, or think you're a cowgirl, and have a ton of sas, but aren't afraid to take it like you dish it out. And, truth be told, if you can find Moroti and Byron Bay on a map, and have seen a sunrise at Varanasi, and perhaps even have huge brown eyes (it's not required), then we likely will have things to talk about and perhaps laugh about.
