Yes, I guess that means I'm a nut! (most likely a combination of cashew and macadamia. Hope you are not allergic!)
I'm a nut because my sense of humor is prone to random acts of silly whackyness. (Charlie Chaplin is an inspiration!) I am very physically expressive and learn kinesthetically. (hence the 20+ yrs. of dance/performance art experience.) Yes, I love to dance (modern, contact improvisation, Salsa, Ballroom, ecstatic, ritual, to name a few.) I Love the ecstatic bliss of pushing my body to the limits of physical expression and discovering the depth of my creative genius! I love the music as it penetrates my bones and takes me on a journey in time, rhythm, space, and feeling. I love the quiet stillness that allows me to hear nothing but my heart beat and dive into the infinite possibilities between each pulse. I love the conversations of the body I have with people on the dance floor. I will speak a million truths with one gesture rather than one truth with a million words! I will know more about someone with a simple touch than a dozen conversations.
I experience the world through my body. I engage my experiences with all 10 (physical/spiritual) of my senses. The sight of vibrant flowers in the sunlight, the feel of the cold river current over my skin, the taste of chocolate strawberries, the song of whales, the fragrance of Jasmine oil, the ecstatic bliss of the ray of love coursing through my being when I hold your hand, The energetic glow of a pristine forest, The song of my spirit guides healing me, to name but a few of my favorites!
The other passions of my life are:
Studying Metaphysics- extensive back ground in meditation, ritual, and prayer. I have a series of classes I teach to adults and teenagers about Meditation, Sacred Geometry, Developing Psychic Awareness, and more. I have received extensive training in healing the energy systems of the human body as well as clearing negative energy from a person, place, or thing. Modalities such as: Light Body Activations, Elemental Energy Balancing, Reiki, Exhorcisms, Soul Retrieval, Chakra Activation and Balancing etc.
Music - I love drums, harmonic overtone singing, Kirtan, and any other kind of instrument I can get my hands on!
Everything to do with water! I love to swim, hike up waterfalls, white water kayak/rafting, body boarding at the beach (haven't learned to surf yet), flat water kayaking, boating, fishing, snowboarding (riding frozen water still counts!) and so much more all year round! Thank human ingenuity for making dry suits, cold weather, and rain gear! Especially in this state!
I'm an outdoor kind of guy, which makes it all the sweeter to come home after braving the elements and cuddle up in front of the fire place with a nice glass of wine and indulge in a pleasant conversation, a good movie, or whatever else our imagination can come up with!
If I'm not on an outdoor adventure, I am usually checking out the local performance art scene. I love a good Dance, Theater, or Music concert. (especially if they include my friends from college on the performer list)
I am currently working as an early childhood education teacher on the Eastside, south Bellevue area and enjoying it very much! I have been teaching for over a decade and love working with children. They are amazing, and in actuality they teach me more than I teach them!
If you have kids of your own, not a problem with me. Genetic material does not dictate my level of respect, care, and concern for all the children in my life. In fact I tend to respect children more than most adults because they actually deserve it and we often underestimate their intelligence!
So if you are looking for a man that likes to be held and supported as much I like to hold and support you (I love cuddle piles-you might say i am somewhat of a lap cat, meow), can be present and expressive of my feelings, speak my truth, willing to listen to yours without judgement or attachment, appreciate the beauty of this world, be creative and artistic, willing to change and allow change to happen gracefully in a relationship, be committed to monogamy, honest, loyal, desires gender equanimity, willing to learn from you, willing to share what I know, is an awakened self aware spiritual being committed to empowerment of the human race, committed to discovering the path to divine union with you, and can out dance you any day of the week! J/K!
If you have similar sentiments and commitments to your self and to building a relationship with me based on these principles then I would enjoy meeting you!
That is all for now. If you are still reading, thanks for giving me the time of your day and if you are potentially interested in any way romantically or otherwise, feel free to send a message. I appreciate women who are empowered enough to make the first leap!
The Butterfly and the Rose
I walk the dream
where the street
breathes in the shadow
the lovers night.
oh, sweet love
long time coming
longer time whispering
I sing your eyes
the ever passing winds
I speak the words of my heart
I sing the songs of my dreams
I see in the water
and it’s true...
as I ride the butterfly,
I offer the rose.

"The gift of truth excels all other gifts"
"To see the world in a grain of sand,
And Heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour."
"Look to this day!
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course
Lie all the verities and realities of your existence:
The bliss of growth;
The glory of action;
The splendor of achievement;
For yesterday is but a dream;
And tomorrow is only a vision;
But today, well lived, makes every yesterday
a dream of happiness,
and every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore, to this day!"
