Favorite travel moment’s n places-
San Miguel de Allende’s Santa holy week procession, laying in the middle of St Marks’ Square staring at the moon drunk with my brother, The Ganges in a small fishing boat at dawn, high as a kite in Esalen’s dojo with rain and a view of the coast, Dinner with dancing girls on Indian palace rooftop with fireworks and flag burning protest below, Private moonlight tour of composers’ park in Vienna, The Madonna Inn's Merry Room, running in the redwoods, Golden Gate Park picnic on New Years day by Conservatory of Flowers when all the windows were still broken.

2) close friends
3) great food
4) sun and nature
6) lots of intellectual stimulation in conversation and media
2) my zero debt goal
3) the politics of politics
5) and lately my Gwenyth Paltrow envy (let's hope this passes)
I want someone educated, my age ish, politically progressive, financially and mentally stable, a keen mind, intellectually curious, attractive, non religious, honorable but they gotta have an edge and a bit of a punk rock ethos; thinks for himself, non conformist but supportive. Oh right and after alllll that - I also want someone who is not pretentious. Yes I realize this is an issue and yes I am planning on freezing my eggs, or maybe I will just buy a cute black baby and call it a day.
