I am not religious, nor do I moralize, but I do have a strong ethical code. I don't lie, I don't cheat, and I only steal from the rich to give to the poor :-)
I read voraciously, and have a plethora of interests, particularly political and social history. Growing up as a lonely only child, I'm very comfortable and confident on my own, but I light up in the right company. I prefer small, intimate gatherings where one can really talk and connect - the best, of course, happen when I am talking all night on a beach with just one special person. And I'm very mature - probably because of growing up by myself.
The outdoors are very important to me. I sea kayak, rock climb, trail run, backpack, hike and snowshoe, and am on my boat, on a rock wall or running on the trail every day of the week. I'm not a thrill-seeker, but I do tend to push myself - which might explain why I've had to be rescued by the Coast Guard twice while paddling in exceptionally rough conditions :-)
Although I enjoy human powered exploration of the outdoors, I'm not a big fan of travel - and that, I realize, sets me apart from most of the people here :-)
