I would like to meet someone special who is on their own path to self-discovery and is living honestly and fully. Relationships require attention, mindfulness, and above all else, communication.
At this point in my life I am focused on being mindful of the present and opening my heart to experiences and opportunities. I enjoy eating out and cooking in, watching college basketball, long walks, travel, talking over a glass of wine, good independent films, museums, and more.
All of this might sound hokey and idealistic, but I'm just hoping to find someone who isn't looking for a cheap thrill. I'm not perfect, far from it. But I do try to treat people well, with respect.
"For one human being to love another human being: that is perhaps the most difficult task that has been entrusted to us, the ultimate task, the final test and proof, the work for which all other work is merely preparation." ~Rainer Maria Rilke, trans. By Stephen Mitchell
Movies? I have several favorites: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind; World According to Garp; Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (the original); and most of all...Harold and Maude. As you can likely tell, I enjoy darker films.
My musical taste tends more towards Americana/Bluegress/Alt-Country. Favorites include Patty Griffin, Neko Case, Gillian Welch, and Jessica Lea Mayfield. Also adore the Decemberists, Zola Jesus, Mark Lanegan, Laura Marling, Hem, Gergory Alan Isakov, Feist, Angus and Julia Stone...
Food? I love to cook. I'm a one trick pony when it comes to baking- the shortbread cookie. For a long period of time I did the pesce-tarian thing. I'd like to get back to that for health reasons. As often as possible I use only fresh food. There is too much processed food in the world and I believe humans are suffering because of this. I am willing to try any food once, but I know what I don't like. Eggplant disgusts me!
