I'm adventurous - but not risky for its own sake - love to try new things, go to new places, learn about new stuff. When someone asks me to try something new, a place, a food, an experience then my answer is usually "Yes".
My work is in my main passion - working to sustainably eradicate poverty, especially around access to energy, but I balance that with a passion for dance (5 rhythms or contact impro) and the outdoors (hiking, camping)
Definitely a "glass more than half full" person, and like to be around happy positive people, especially those doing something about making the world happier and more positive.
I enjoy exploring the differences between myself and a lover - we don't have to be the same !
I moved back to Marin a year ago to be closer to nature (esp hiking) and in a quieter environment, but love being just 15 mins from San Francisco.
For books how about The Blue Sweater by Jacqueline Novograd, or anything by Osho.
I spent 2.5 years recently living out of a single carry-on bag and knew every item in it. Two years ago I was in a cyclone in India and learned that I could do without almost everything else material or non-material as long as you have people to connect with.
