My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
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, Seattle, and a few places in between home at various points in my life too. Recently relocated from SEA to PDX. What else? Super curious. Healthy. Fit. Unorthodox.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
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.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Dancing (West African and 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
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
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
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies: Groundhog Day (perfection), Chungking Express (defines cool), The Shawshank Redemption (when I need a pick me up), Casablanca (must I explain), and more.
Books: I love the American private detective genre (an underappreciated and American art firm); Kon-Tiki: Across the Pacific in a Raft; Man's Search for Meaning (just read, love it), any good poem that rhymes--rhyming is EVERYTHING.
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 west African music of late.
Food: Anything wholesome, minimally processed, spicy, and fresh. You won't find junk or processed food in my cupboards or fridge. I eat oats for breakfast and live for Earl Grey tea.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My three alarm clocks. My running shoes. My bikes. My passport. My cameras (all of them including my beloved analog Nikons and Leica). My friends. My brilliant life story.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How am I living a life that has true meaning and honoring what life truly wants me to do, and am I doing that as if today were the only day I had to do that. It's actually not a complex idea. It's boldly simple. Doing, now that is the hard stuff. Refer to book above: Man's Search for Meaning (Viktor Frankl).
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
None of my recent Fridays has been typical.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I believe in the school of hard knocks. Here's one gem I just found that fits the bill: “You think that you can only establish true practice after you attain enlightenment, but it is not so. True practice is established in delusion, in frustration.”
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
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.
