My self-summary
I'm an easy going, kind-hearted soul who enjoys being with people, especially those who are reasonably intelligent, humorous and self aware. My tastes are simple. I'm happiest in nature, but also enjoy the urban life. I like to be active, especially outdoors, but I'm not a slave to the gym. All things in balance.

I don't own or particularly enjoy television. I find it far more interesting to geek around on the web, take photographs, go for a walk, stretch, play my guitar (badly), futz in my garden or even just watch the light change in the sky.... I'm easily amused and don't take myself too seriously. Well, most of the time. I laugh easily, and think our capacity for joy comes partly from understanding sadness.

I feel pretty strongly about doing what I can to be part of the solution not the problem regarding our environment and living in the Anthropocene. In practice, this means small lifestyle changes that may not really make much difference but do make me feel slightly better.

I'm interested in genuine connections. Not into anything casual - not for moral reasons, I'm just busy and don't find them worth my time. I'm ambivalent about this online dating world, so I haven't worked up a slick 'all about me' pitch. I'll add more later or better yet, in conversation.
What I’m doing with my life
Working at a job I like. Yoga. Bike riding, forest walking, book reading. Pondering the great mysteries of existence. Loving my friends and family and all that I am blessed with. Plotting where to explore next. Aspiring to being a good human amidst the shifts we are undergoing as a civilization.

Listening
Being a loyal friend
Being considerate
Napping
Keeping things light
Being serious
Procrastinating
Getting things done
The first things people usually notice about me
No idea.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like all kinds of music, especially if its live, but not so much metal, hard rock, punk or cheesy country. And silence. Silence is golden.

Food? Ideally, real and happy. Local, organic fresh. Nom nom. I'd rather skip the GMO or mean-to-creatures menu. Was a vegetarian for 12 years and mostly that way now. I'm not overly fussy - just incredibly grateful for such an abundance of choice.
Six things I could never do without
Aside from the givens, like air, water, food, and shelter -
Meaning
My bicycle
Humour
Compassion
Quiet time
Wild and natural places
Connection
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The state of the world. How to be real in an unreal world. The things that warm my heart. What to make for dinner. Where you are.
On a typical Friday night I am
It varies. Winding down from my work week with friends, solo chill time, beach time, or taking in some live music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm willing to admit I don't admit private things online.
You should message me if
You're genuine.
Not interested in casual encounters.
