I've been told I'm a great listener and a calming presence. I value sincerity but have an absurd sense of humor and a pretty ridiculous uninhibited laugh.
I love the energy of the city, but appreciate stillness and silence and the outdoors even more (I'm from Maine, it's in the blood). The beautiful things in life are what interest me most.
Any beautiful things you'd like to recommend? (music/books/movies/dance/art/nature/volcanoes/kinds of laughter/videos of sloths/acts of kindness/etc.)
I'm also surprisingly practical.
Trying to be an empathetic, compassionate and generous human being overall.
I'm pretty liberal and try to be engaged with issues of social & economic justice. And I find myself being increasingly engaged considering the present circumstances!
