My self-summary
I'm a kind and active, healthy and fit guy with a zest for life!
What I’m doing with my life
I have recently returned to Hawaii and am ready to explore Oahu now that the last 3 months' new job learning curve has levelled out a bit. I would love it if you have a favorite place on the island to show me.

I am also at an exciting crossroads where it feels like I have the opportunity to create a lifestyle of abundance more on my own terms than before.
I dance passionately, and I love all conscious movement - whether a good long meditative swim, cycle, hike or yoga session. And yes, physical intimacy, yes indeed.
I love being creative with music and healing. And climbing trees when I get the chance.
I’m really good at
Finding solutions. Cooking. Using my body effectively. Teaching others to use their body effectively. Fixing things. Applied physics. Thinking (and doing) 'outside the box'. Shining metaphoric light so others can find their way more easily (as in sometimes personal coaching).
The first things people usually notice about me
My light energy and the way I can easily connect with people and make them feel seen. How fun I can be. That I have a well-developed, quirky sense of humour and am willing to use it. Oh yeah, and the legs...there's the occasional comment about my legs. I love how well and the many wheres they have carried me thru all these years. And now they dance me, too.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Most memorable recent books -Musicophelia (a neurologist writes about music and the brain), The Brain That Changes Itself and One River (and anything else that Wade Davis does) - which is ethnobotanically-oriented travels around tropical America - did I say I want to explore Amazonia some, soon!?) Love reading Kingsolver, a good historical or dramatic fiction. Words rock! Rumi, Hafiz, Rilke, EE Cummings. Italo Calvino. Dianne Ackerman. Naruda. Marge Piercey's 'Woman on the Edge of Time', and 'He, She and It'. Herland by Charlotte Perkins Gilman. Still curious why feminist utopian novels caught my attention for so long.

Music! Anything I can harmonize, jam with or dance to! Unusual time signatures and clever syncopation. I love the rich spaces between musical notes.
Sting, Joni Mitchell, Beatles. Tchaikovsky. 70s rock, Jazz (esp swing), tribal world beats that take my feet to frenzy. The deep harmonies of chorale music (esp Faure), some folk - and most anything with devotional content. I play/sing a bunch of different stuff, and have just started "playing well with others". My favourite songs as a kid was Debussy's "Claire de Lune" and Puff the Magic Dragon.
I've seen too few good movies. Loved 'What dreams May Come', 'English Patient', 'Contact', 'Princess Bride', and I have a vintage DVD called 'Microcosmos' (bugs up very close!), Never owned a TV yet, but I know there are worthwhile shows to watch sometimes when I'm near one.

I really enjoy good food! Prefer local and organic and aspire to be live-foods/vegan. My diet is generally eat what ever and whenever I can (and try to keep the sugar component as low as possible). Seldom eat red meat. And did I say I'm an excellent cook?
I have hedonistic tendencies that present in my enjoyment of food (and sometimes elsewhere). Ethnically, I love Thai and Indonesian most. Love to enjoy a perfectly cooked and herbed fresh filet of wild salmon.

The six things I could never do without
Music & Dance.
Earthly & heavenly beauty.
Human ingenuity & touch
Sunshine & Bees.
How many things r that?
Human Ingenuity =/> a couple thousand
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Music. Other cultures and languages (always want to learn the local language and enjoy it). The pursuit of Right livelihood (I think I found some) and lifestyle. Finding solutions to problems.
finding pleasure. My growing 'edge'. Where to find the best chocolate (dark, of course), and the next awesome adventure/travel.
On a typical Friday night I am
Not much 'typical'
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have allergies - if you have a dog that you share your bed with, we are definitely not a match, but good luck!
You should message me if
You like fun, poetic wordplay, music and movement,
And are willing to be at least a bit fitness-friendly,
Accept and express yourself well, and listen effectively,
And if you can show up and fulfil at least some/many of your commitments.
