I'm 38 years old, I'm educated, I like to think, to dance, to feel. I'm a dreamer and a hypocrite. I've accepted that I won't reach enlightenment in this life. That's cool. I'd like to get a little closer though, at least I want to feel more connected to the world I live in, less caught up in my own head, and when I die I want to feel that I did what I could to help a hurting planet. And since the world may come to an end soon, I want to get in a lot of dancing and laughter while I'm here. Nah mean?
I'm ready to meet someone, but dang it I just don't feel compelled to look much. It's a lot of work, looking. A lot of mental energy.. It's not that i want to skip the exciting fun who-is-this-amazing-woman!? getting to know each other part... nope it's just knowing that what I really want is that woman I still want to be with (and vice versa) afterwords. To enjoy knowing and being known, sharing that platform from which we discuss the events of our days and lives. That whay what I look forward to most right now.

Nonfiction Authors: Derrick Jensen, Michael Pollan, Raj Patel, George Sessions, Warwick Fox, Ken McLoud, Bill McKibben, Theodore Roszak, Biil Bryson...
Movies: The new Karate Kid, Pulp Fiction, Thunderheart, The Station Agent, The Last Temptation of Christ, The Harry Potters, Children of Men, Hero, Wedding Crashers, Dances with Wolves, Maverick, Dazed and Confused, Harold and Kumar... Either fun or meaningful (I'm sick of how so many Hollywood movies dissolve into plotless action)
Music: There's two types of music, good and bad (of all genras).... That being said: Reggae. Not just the old classic stuff, but the new era of amazing upbeat conscious reggae. I'm not really into popular American music. I also love old accoustic blues, bluegrass, some folk, West and North African traditional music, Indian sitar stuff. Some hiphop, some funk. But really, I love conscious dancehall passionately.

And that leads to the second reason Friday night doesn't hold much significance for me, which is it doesn't have to. I'm my own boss, my work schedule is not defined by the 5/2 week structure. I'm at the front end of a start-up and I both have the freedom to come and go as I choose - the caveat being that i have to 12-16 hour days 6-7 days a week because that's that's what it's going to take to to do this thing. So.. Friday? Ain't nobody got time for that
You'd enjoy having some drinks while waxing philosophic.
I don't know, you tell me why
