My self-summary
I should have lived in the Victorian Age when elegance and strength were more complementary. Also, no one would have mistaken me for a hippie.

Be confident in your qualities and direction even amidst social pressure. I value my space and the time to pursue my goals, but like to reconnect regularly. I enjoy hiking, running, stair climbing. Perhaps we can share a few of these. Perhaps we can visit the orchestra. Perhaps a good poem thrills you a little.
What I’m doing with my life
Striving for a second poem publication
Training for my next half marathon. I'm still not brave enough for the full and would miss my toenails.
Attending new and wonderful performances at the Colorado Symphony Orchestra.
Learning patience
Improving my meditation
I’m really good at
Viewing the world in dramatic terms and writing in the traditional poetic forms
Creating an experience during my presentations; I am a performer
Selling financial products
Seeing the world through others' eyes
Memorization, particularly verse
Working out until I am soaked
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair: it's different, but it's connected with my history
It often appears as if I'm frowning, but my mouth turns down naturally unless I smile.
I might seem aloof or cold, but it's only I prefer getting to know people gradually.

Six things I could never do without
My sister
My books
My poetry
My Faith
The seven hills of Constantinople (that counts as one)
The stairs in my office tower
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The links between this world and the next
The beauty in all things
Being a faithful friend
Rising to my potential
Staying healthy
Leaving a legacy
On a typical Friday night I am
Drinking a Tom Collins, smoking my pipe and reading Sherlock Holmes. I might dork it up and play Final Fantasy on PlayStation.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I always liked the prince from Beauty and the Beast because he looked like me.
You should message me if
You feel you possess complementary qualities to these. In the interest of honesty, I'm not into the skinny model type. I prefer curves, muscle or both. I'd love to be purely ethereal but I am human, after all.
The two of us
