I'm fairly new to the city and look forward to the discovery ahead of me. I am a fan of letting certain things happen organically. Getting lost in a new place, meeting people, accidently finding a corner of any city that I can claim as "mine," finding good chemistry because everything happens to work together, being surprisingly brought to tears because I heard the most incredible piece of music... I could go on but these are the sorts of things that can't be planned. They also teach me that life continues to unfold itself... as long as I keep paying attention.
A bit more about me. I could talk about hiking, camping, traveling, etc... all things I like to do. Rather than lead with that, I'll just say I like to do them and do them when I can. Yes there is much to be gained from these adventures but so too is there from our daily lives if one takes time absorb the world around them. The super talented street performer on the way to work, the smells of different foods as you dart your way though the crowds, the smile you get when you see someone listening to their ear buds rocking out without a care in the world, or that first sip of coffee in the morning. Yes I exercise and take care of myself AND I sometimes enjoy eating cookie dough ice cream by the pint (oh... and deep dish pizza... its SO good :o) . I like any number of outdoor activities AND I also like staying in and doing absolutely nothing. I tend to keep busy with life AND I love to sleep in late, drink coffee in bed, and let the day plan me for a change. I like listening to peoples' stories, I enjoy a entertainment that goes beyond entertaining and makes you think, and music is good if it gives me goosebumps, makes me cry, or just changes the entire direction of a day.
These are but a few thoughts that have hopefully sparked some curiosity about me. It is by no means all of who I am but a small part of me. There is more I'm happy to share in person.
