How to start? Well, I'm single, sane, healthy and sort of normal looking on the outside, but creative on the inside, or at least nimble enough to feed myself and pay my rent without doing harm to the world. I have a brain bent for science but fell into art and I can't seem to get out, which is just as well since I enjoy making things, including my own hours. I prefer to be active, exploring trails, paddling the lake or swimming in the Springs when I'm not making something or helping someone else make something, or trying to keep said creations from blowing up or causing NORAD to raise the DEFCON threat level.
I'm adventurous and uber-inquisitive about the world around me, to the extent that I have been known to trek to the middle of nowhere in Death Valley to see places where the rocks move by themselves; jump onto a bus taking biologists into the Chernobyl exclusion zone; or take a three day side trip through Bosnia to the site of appearances by the Virgin Mary, despite not being Catholic, or even religious. I'm skeptical and agnostic, but intrigued by all that there is we don't know, awed by nature and the universe and complete humbled by my small place in them. For those who want to know, I generally score as INTP, with occasional forays into E and S.

Examples: I find it beautifully hilarious that bridal showers in Latvia include the washing of socks (there's a story, of course), and that there is a word, Mamihlapinatapai, that means, approximately, "a look shared by two people with each wishing that the other will initiate something that both desire but which neither one wants to start." How fantastic is it that there is a word for that?
...are smart as hell with a smart-ass sense of humor, insatiably curious, and in a life that's a bit unconventional in one way or another (don't be bored).
...enjoy spontaneity whether or not it's well planned.
...are in the habit of taking care of yourself, eating reasonably healthy and staying active.
...are strong of mind and will, or have ever been told that you were intimidating, outspoken or opinionated.
... are ready to teach, learn, and explore together.
...know where your passport and your towel are at all times.
*A love of moving water, radical politics or guys who shave their heads are worth bonus points. Formidable kissing, scrabble, or thumb wrestling skills automatically get you past the bouncer and in the door.
