Words, I hope, that would describe me: curious, vivifying, optimistic, thoughtful, (com)passionate, animated, adventurous.
As for what I'm looking for, I tend to be drawn towards women who have a good blend of moxie, curiosity, quirk, intelligence and passion. I'm also far more compelled by photos that seem to capture moments than those that seem to capture looks, if that makes sense. Here's to hoping it's you!
Also, entitlement is a deal breaker and the everything-happens-for-a-reason mantra drives me batty.
I can sniff out funk from a long ways away. Likewise I'm quite adept at finding really cool folk to befriend.
Too many to list. But here are a few that I've tackled of late
~NYTimes (a daily affair)
~Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth
~After the Music Stopped: The Financial Crisis, the Response, and the Work Ahead
~The Power of the Dog
MUSIC (just a smattering...like 'you' my interests run far & wide):
~In my car - Elvis, NPR
~In my apartment - War On Drugs, Tycho Radio, Bach
~In my earphones (read: at the gym or when riding my bike)- sundry DJ's
~Lebowski (this Dude abides)
~The Lives of Others
~Safety Not Guaranteed

Fresh Fun Food & Lovely Libations
Marvelous Music Making Me Move or Mellow (out)

The Schist disk. If you have any good explanations for what the hell that thing is, or why it was made, please tell me. Immediately.
The herd mentality and how it terrifies me. And does this explain why I eat meat with gusto and verve?!
So whether it's a picnic, a play, a dj, or a date
I'm mostly up for anything.....provided it's great.
Speaking of authors, I'll probably judge you based on your booklist.
The Bay Area is hands down the most flaky place I've ever lived in. I'm hardly a perfect actor, but flaky I am not. Please move along if you are.
You want a life that isn't wholly defined by convention. This isn't to say that you seek, or want, a life completely outside of it. Simply that your curiosity and zest for life is such that the idea of doing something outside the proverbial norm is something you're interested in.
You are curiouser and curiouser. Put another way, yours is the examined life.
You aspire to decency and understand how hard that can sometimes be.
You find that people -young and old, rich and poor, and normal and abnormal- take a shine to you and are apt to reveal parts of themselves because they trust your soul and know that you're generally interested in what they have to say and share.
