My self-summary
Never one for cliches like "living it to the fullest" and "must like animals", and no inspiring vista will be desecrated by mugging some yoga pose for the camera. The goal is the journey and here I am, as always, in the midst of it.

The world of people is big,intriguing and there are some wonderful women out there. To me, relationships cover a big spectrum and I'm able to appreciate where each resolves. The perspective of "take either all of me or none of me" has always seemed limiting.

But...I wake up with a smile. I'm clever, light-hearted with a dash of irreverence, and you'll giggle. I say hi to others when out running and they look at me strangely. I harass the cats and they come back for more, purring. Underneath I’m one to challenge my beliefs, refresh my assumptions and create new challenges. My routine isn't at all based on the 40-hour kind. Seems my life has always been some type of semi-retirement: I'm nomadic, curious, frequently come-and-go from home to absorb something, somewhere, new.

I'll notice your scarf, and remember the little things you mentioned last week. I'll find good words when times are tough. I'm drawn to connections and meaning. Time resolves the eventual direction but I'll root for you from day one. ISFJ...and pretty true to form. Secondary type: ESPN ;-).

Not an A-lister: I won't know if you 'liked' me. But if you do, it will still make me smile.
