I am a very curious person, especially intellectually, and probably a lot more romantic than I'd care to admit.
I am pretty damn queer. I could try and describe what kind of a queer I am, but you can probably tell from the pictures. Some of my friends tell me I look like Arthur Rimbaud--I don't know about that, but it might be the coolest compliment I've ever received.
I love putting my body into nature, especially water--swimming in the Aegean (whenever I have the opportunity) has been one of the most thrilling experiences of my life.
I am adventurous, I love to take risks, especially ones where I have a feeling the experience or encounter will push me in a new direction. I don't ever want to become too comfortable in life.
I love to travel whenever that is possible. I am also creative (I am poet in the spirit of Gertrude Stein, Walt Whitman, Arthur Rimbaud, Emily Dickinson, Wallace Stevens, Hart Crane, Sappho, and the other great Greek lyricists). One of my ambitions for 2013 is to learn French so that I will be able to translate (respectably) some of my favorite 20th c. French poets. I would also love to go to Paris someday soon.
