Time constraints are my bane, there just is not enough of the stuff to go around. So I am working on integrating a big bucket list into every day and could really use some help here trying to find a balance.
Having labored some years on a stuck business it is past time to get on with life. I need to warn you though, I am not an average dulled out citizen with 6 pack and t.v. sports.
I am more intense than most, say music for example, to listen to popular radio is a physical, painful, suppression of gag reflex event for me, on the other hand the right Santanna, Satriani or for that matter any style of music with palpable soul is a nearly orgasmic experience, seriously. Try Ain't no sunshine when she's gone, if that fails to move you deeply then please move on.
I'm not yet clear of my working obsession, it still consumes much of me, though less every day. It's not like there is a light switch here. Likewise finding a companion/activity partner/mate is a continuum that defies these stupid catagories. I for one do not fit into a box while still breathing. and seek only a girl who knows what she is about
