I was born in a tiny country town in Oregon you've probably never heard of and went to art school in Seattle...educated country boy, I feel comfortable in the woods camping and fishing, but can appreciate the theatre and a meal that looks too pretty to eat. Living out here at the coast has been a pretty good mix...beautiful countryside and a good arts community.
I'm pretty open minded about most things, easy-going and laid back. I love trying new things, travelling to places I've never been and making adventures out of the mundane...amazing how much fun you can make a trip to the store if you're willing to set aside a few social conventions!
Movies: back to Tolkien's Lord of the Rings...Many of Tim Burton's works, The Princess Bride, Monty Python movies...A Christmas Story, the first 3 Indiana Jones movies (nostalgic reasons), Star Wars movies and a variety of anime...Akira and Ghost in the Shell got me started. I am willing to sit through a good chick-flick...but if I cry, you have to pretend you didn't see it. I still haven't lived down Moulan Rouge...she had tuberculosis...it was tragic...(stop laughing).
Music: Everything except vulgar rap, extreme-twang Blue grass and German baroque Opera. I grew up on what they call "classic rock" now, but dig grunge, alternative, indie and country...hard to find a radio station I wont listen to.
Food: Pretty much anything! I'll eat (or at least try) just about anything people call food. I have a good palate, but like to abuse it occasionally. I love a huge range of food from Thai food to a good German sausage on a roll with sauerkraut...Lately, I have been hitting the wilted spinach salads pretty hard...is spinach habit-forming?
Updating this to:
A small bit of earth to sew and reap
A house and hearth where I can dream and sleep
Air that's clean and smells of pine or sea
Where rains fall soft...but not constantly
A partner who wants to share these things
And hope this is what tomorrow brings.
A little less of a cop-out than my last response.
