I am a kind, caring, and compassionate man who is looking for ways to enjoy life, make connections and share meaningful experiences with like-minded individuals. I value honesty, open-mindedness, and willingness in myself and others. My sense of integrity and self-belief comes from my awareness of my strengths, my ability to learn from my mistakes and most importantly through my connection with spirituality.
I try not to take myself too seriously and I try not to sweat the small stuff but the trappings of my everyday life sometimes get the better of me. To regain perspective, I will spend time out in nature on walks or hikes, go swimming in the rivers when the seasons permit, listen to the birds, look for plants that call out to me, go for a bike ride, watch a good movie, listen to music, go dancing, make some pottery, cook or bake some yummy food, do Qi Gong, play tennis, or hang out with friends. These activities (as well as others I've either forgotten to mention or I've yet to discover) help me revitalize my passion for life, love, and health.
I should probably explain that I generally resist being labeled and put in a box and checked. I believe in order to live life to the fullest one has to be willing to get dirty or messy. Rarely do I experience life as simply black or white; it appears to be many shades of grey.
I live a fulfilling life and would like to share friendship, intimacy and love with a woman who seeks partnership and is open to the possibility of growing in a relationship that can one day support the foundation of a family.
Following my intuition
Making the best of a bad situation
Seeing beauty in others, in the mundane, and in mundane others
Doing nothing and calling it work
Spotting rainbows - but terrible finding pots of gold and leprechauns
Sleeping in late
Internally, my heart.

Sci-Fi, Comedy, Action, Sports, Drama, etc... When it comes to movies I like watching all types but 5 minutes after they are over, I can hardly remember what it was about. My brain just doesn't hold on to much of them.
I like some of everything when it comes to TV shows. I have a TV but I do not have cable so if I wanna watch a show I get it on my computer and link it to my tv monitor. I like watching True Blood, The Office, Game of Thrones, Fringe, Dexter, Deadwood, Battlestar Galactica, The Wire, Breaking Bad, UFC/NFL and The Voice.
I love to listen to most any type of music which moves me, makes me feel, and touches my soul. This can be in any genre including but not limited to Rock, Bluegrass, House/Dance/DnB, Jamband, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Reggae, etc...
Artists I like are The Dead, String Cheese Incident, Cheb i Sabbah, Yonder Mountain String Band, Beatles, Stones, Bassnectar, Ben Harper, 2Pac, Bjork, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Bob Marley, Bob Dylan, Foo Fighters, Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, Johnny Cash, Peter Tosh, The Black Keys, and Thievery Corporation to name a few.
I love all types of food! I like to cook and bake at home and when I do I prefer to eat organic, free-range, and best of all out of my own garden. I am not a food "purist" or "snob" and I will occasionally eat less nourishing foods but I generally feel better when I eat healthfully so that what I prefer on a regular basis. I also like to go out and eat any ethnic food from nice restaurants, food carts and everything in between.
...If I am the one listening who is that speaking in my head?
...How this wheel just keeps going around and around and around...
I like singing contest reality TV shows (guilty pleasure).
