Personally I am :

* Looking for opportunities to grow

* Meeting new people......

* Learning new things.....

* Laughing and living .......

* Getting back to my creative roots....

* Knowing what I want and having a plan to get there.

I am both intense and carefree; well educated and fun.

I enjoy living life out loud.

I love the outdoors and all the riches that come with living in Oregon; the beach, the mountains, the valley, lakes, rivers ,all the great towns, the wonderful food, the world class libations, an accessible & vibrant arts and music scene

There is so much to explore right here in our backyard.
I want to continue to explore 'this and that'
I am totally comfortable spending time with myself and need that space to reflect and grow, yet, all in all I like the idea of having someone to share and experience lifes explorations!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Running my own Business.
Learning, Laughing and Having Fun.

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My energy, smile & eyes...or so I'm told.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
So many great books... classics from vonnegut; kerouac; j.d. salinger; hemmingway, steinbeck; henry miller, charles bukowski
modern classics of pop fiction from the likes of hunter s. thompson; cormac mc carthy; william gibson; barbara kingsolver; tom robbins; annie proulx; anne pachett; robert pirsig(zen and the art of motorcycle); david Sedaris et al;.........

and so many great movies... and music

I love music, it can and does set the tone for your day/moment.

I owned a live music venue/ pub and we hosted local, regional and national acts-across all genre

I like to listen to music and go to shows; I'm willing to travel to hear what I want to hear when I want to hear it ...( within reason)

I love watching live dance & theater

I enjoy tasting beer & wine and talking to those that make it.

In fact I think that people who take the time to express themselves artistically are fascinating ( cooks, winemakers, brewers , dancers,actors, artrist, artisans, performers..etc.)

Good food with nice music and good friends, ah now thats livin'......

Food wise most anything e.g. italian,spanish(tapas), all kinds of seafood, cheeses, cuban, thai, sushi, lebeneese, vietnameese, chinese, greek , french, mexican, bbq, southern hi and lo country , peruvian , modern american farm to table, classic american...etc -however, no insects, or super slimy sea stuff !

We are blessed to live in an area with such a lush culinary landscape. The beer, The wine, The food ...OH MY!!
I love dining out...and yet it is one of those activities that is better shared than alone.....alas the quest for a dinner date.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
family & friends
good conversation
cooking for other people (good food w/great atmosphere)
water (to drink,to play in, help things grow...)
mountains,lakes,rivers and oceans to explore
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
**see all of the above**

...specifically though;

How to be great.
How to better relate and connect with people and their ideas.

TIME and how it starts and stops, freezes and explodes.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Relaxing after a long work week.. cooking, eating and talking with friends....... and wine, don't forget the wine (ok! sometimes its beer and/or burbon). Perhaps going out to a show or performance.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
" I'm the one that's got to die when it's time for me to die, so let me live my life the way I want to while I'm alive" ~Jimi Hendrix

You've gotta sing like you don't need the money,
You've gotta love like you'll never get hurt,
You've gotta dance like nobody's watching,
you've gotta come from the heart if you want it to work!
~Susana Clark

...spend quiet time with someone around
...have a friend to talk to or go out with
