I'm fully immersed in that whole "Renaissance man" groove, and taking time to enjoy...it all. If anything below catches your eye, chances are there's a lot more to be said about it!
Over the past few years I've been extremely lucky with travel: I've wandered the streets of Paris, hiked in the Rockies, and read Dickens on Isla Mujeres. New Zealand is next on the list (to satisfy my love of landscapes and LOTR), and in the meantime I'll plan a few road trips around the U.S.
I have a lifelong love of camping, hiking, and Frisbee, and if you have an outdoorsy bone in your body, we'll get along just fine...you, me, nature, and Uncle Sid.
If someone's feeling down, I'm usually able to cheer them up with a joke that's dumb and requires an explanation that tends to nullify said joke.

Traveling. I have a goal to see the literal South Pole.
A sense of humor. Mine is a mix of satire, dry wit, and only the worst of puns.
A good bourbon....not much more to say on that.
Outdoor activities: camping, hiking, canoing, Frisbee, disc golf, swimming...
Snickers. Again, it's all been said.
How to incorporate spirituality in my life without making a label of it.
Is it selfish to pursue artistic dreams over active humanitarianism, or does being your passion make you even more capable of positive momentum in the world?
And if you like bass players, because I've heard we do it deeper...
