Personally I am :

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!

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
