I love aesthetic pleasure: paintings, prints, photography, architecture, various moments of sunlight shading and reflection, sounds (from music to the shrill howl of BART), warm beds and showers, food and drink,(but I hate the word foodie).
I’m pessimistic, sarcastic and critical but still very accepting when it comes down to it.
I just returned from what I referred to as my "sabbatical", in Spain, living the good life, primarily in Barcelona, with a few trips to other places, including Morocco (partly because I’m fascinated with nomadic cultures and becoming a land pirate (not in a “I’m gonna steal your land” sort of way, but in a way which you can find out more about if you ask.)) I miss it there already, and would probably still be there if it weren't for the impossibility of getting a work visa. I would say i have somewhat European sensibilities, and really value spending time abroad and travelling in foreign countries.
I of course think I’m funny, but I’m definitely not the funniest person I know. I particularly enjoy laughing at the ridiculous, the absurd and the witty.
I love road trips through the southwest in the middle of the summer with no air conditioning. The way one can leave their body behind when it achieves such a sweltering state of misery on an endless straight road is fascinating to me.
People have called me a scenester, a hippie, a jock, a butt-rocker, a preppie and a dork, but I’d like to think that I don’t really fit into any of those categories completely so that’s why I get them all.
I’m passionate and jaded, patient and restless, selfless and mildly narcissistic
