Oh and if I am looking at your profile and I am not in your part of the world it means that I am planning on coming through there on my travels. I may contact you because you seem interesting and I am looking to get a coffee with someone. Also who knows maybe there will be a connection too.
Hmm Self-summary. I feel somewhat compressed by this. There is the usual stuff of hiking and blah blah blah but I will not bore you with that. What I really enjoy is passion, conversations, art, and humor. Not necessarily in that order, but possibly in that order, or one close to it. I can have a slightly dry sarcastic wit, but I can also be really silly and I have no problem being highly self deprecating.
I am lively, introspective, have a few brain-cells left, which I have burning on high (most of the time). I can identify and even feel my own feelings. I am honest and really am not into playing games. If I like you, I'll tell you. If I want to call the next day I'll call and I do not call repeatedly or text too often. If it is working out then hallelujah! If not then no worries we can both move on and I wish you all the best.
Here is the bit that is not trying to be clever or really trying to be anything. In the end I genuinely care about people. I think too much about art pieces yet to be made and poems and prose that have not yet been written. I work hard but I am by no means a finished product. I am still figuring this whole thing out and probably will be to some extent until I expire which hopefully will be in another sixty or seventy some odd years.
Until I come up with more for this summary that is my nutshell. I welcome you to crack it open and venture farther down the rabbit hole. Cheers,
P.S. On the questions section I feel that there are some questions where I would not ever think about answering the question another way and other questions that I couldn't care less about. But here is the thing, big John Locke fan, this means that I am always open to the other side of the debate to either prove my point or to take on another world view. There is always room to shift or learn something new.
I draw and paint and sell some of my pieces on the side and do commission pieces. With this said, art is a constant in my life and even when I am practicing counseling in the future I will always be creating art pieces on the side.

Not that into gangster Rap but I do like some rap and I even like the occasional country song. I prefer classical to opera and movies to live theater but that is mostly because I have seen some terrible theatrical productions.
answer you were really looking for...
Good Friends, Love, conversations that are expansive in nature, sex, a wonderful novel, the earth.
