Like grace and class and elegance, craftsmanship and art nouveau.
Looking for people to go to events with for good company.
-Warm hearted is the most attractive to me.
-I like to meeting smart people.
-Don't show well in photos... -
- Have good hands--did jewelry for 7 years, massage for several, (Both swedish and Japanese) and was an emt.
-Am a rationalist and a meritocrat.
-Don't really understand racism and sexism. The existence and facts yes, the why, not so well.
-I want to own my own place out in the country, with lots of room for dances and pets and for guests to come and stay for a week or three. Want to get building, Right Now. :}
-I have lots of milage. A few screws and such, trivial compared to people who've really been banged up. But a few scars here and there.
--Enjoy nurturing and being nurtured. :)
--A little whimsical. *Sigh* :}
Find the butterfly's stomp that will change the world for the better. Thats a big deal.
-Lets go to Paris for breakfast, or walk around SF, or the marin headlands, or santa cruz.
-Dance at Fezziwig's Warehouse at Dicken's faire, or build the latest steampunk toys. :}
-Ponder words like falling stars on warm summer nights while the lotus blooms in deep pools of still water.

Virtuosity cuts across all genres. :}
Very few people seem to look up, isn't that strange?
From San Francisco, with all that implies, and ussual SF kinks and open mind--
