I have followed my dreams and have worked extremely hard to accomplish my goals. Now, I'm learning how to work less and spend more time with friends and family. It would be a perfect time for me to meet someone who shares a lot of the interests I have and who is ready to travel the world and see this amazing planet! I have had the great fortune to get an amazing education and I've also been able to travel many places in the world. I lived on the East Coast for quite a few years, but am really looking forward to my life back in Michigan where I am hoping to meet someone who shares my interests. I have had many years to date and see the gay community at its best and its worst. (I'm a realist) Now, I want to build that family unit that most of us have missed out on in our early adult lives. It doesn't have to mean kids, though I am definitely not opposed to that. It could be me and my partner and a dog and a close group of friends... something wonderful like that. Ideally, I am looking for a guy who enjoys outdoor activities and who has a thirst for knowledge and adventure. I am in the process of building an art retreat center on my property in Michigan. In a couple of years, I plan on living there for six months a year (summers - which are beautiful in Michigan) and then being able to live in different parts of the world the other six months (winter)...preferably some place warm like Australia or Chile! Not a fan of winters anymore. I know this sounds like a fantasy life, but I'm making it become my reality. Anyone like to join me?? I am looking for a guy who has a curious mind (who seeks new knowledge or interests on a continuum. I like smart guys...Education is irrelevant if it means that you're still ignorant. I'd prefer a self-educated guy who knows what and why he thinks the way he does to a college educated guy who can't think critically for himself. In those cases, and there are many, "education" is a waste. I am aware that I am taking some risks by changing my life the way that I am, but I believe that this is our one and only shot and we don't have any "re-do's" I want to live in my way, experiencing freedom and my life fully while doing what I love to do.
a good book
