I can do a lot of things and can generally figure it out if I can't. I wonder if describing myself, I will seem bi-polar.
I live in my head a bit and it suits my lifelong goals of writing. I am fanciful and quick to grab healthy dose of the imagination. I can be light-hearted and fun-loving.
However, I live in my body a bit also which makes me more of the artist, and I have the true artist's eye. I eat well and consciously, try to work out daily and am an eleven year firefighter, giving a lot back to my community. I like to dance.
I can be both serious and silly, sometimes at the same time. I have a strong sense of the practical but can mix it up with a bit of whimsy. People have always said I'm funny, but sometimes I can slip into the obtuse.
I am content with my life and would be happy to be on my own, for a couple years at least. But a recent experience showed me how much I love good connection.
I tend to go for women who are very smart, and especially those with a bit of irreverent humor.
I would probably be most inspired by someone whose viewpoint captivates me in some fashion and with whom the talk comes easily, once we get to know each other.
I would also like that person to be interested in life, both the internal and external terrain, and be able to talk about and share experience without being critical.
I'm well-traveled and, though I haven't been able to get away as much as I used to, do enjoy traveling. I find the people and cultures most interesting, and generally prefer swag-style to luxury - one tends to see more. I love food.
I'm also well-read and a literary penchant of some sort is a bonus.
