By night: Flying people and occasionally getting to fly myself. That's code for acroyoga. It looks like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x64Qn6_ax3s
On vacation: I've been to a ton of transformation festivals (Envision, LiB, Lucidity, Serentiy, Enchanted Forest, Symbiosis, Beyond Wonderland). As much as I love them, I'll probably be going to more Acroyoga events. Divine Play 2016 was a lot of fun.
For maintenance: Kundalini yoga every day. On my off days from lifting people (acroyoga), I lift weights at Equinox. The diet is relatively healthy: mostly organic, no sugar, no processed food, no fast food.
When I get a chance, I try to squeeze these in:
- Writing creative stories (short stories and a few novels).
- Canyoneering (= rappelling down waterfalls and the occasional office building).
- Offroading (drive a Jeep Rubicon; coolest trip was three days through the Mojave Desert with camping).
- Leading hikes for the Sierra Club.
- Taking communication and relationship workshops.
- Doing massage and Thai Yoga (850+ hours of professional training)
- Swimming in the ocean with a super thick wetsuit.
- Taking UCLA Extension classes.
I'm good at learning anything. I've learned the geekiest in computer science. I've learned to be super goofy with comedy improv. I've learned to be in the moment and connect with massage.
Because I'm tall, I can be intimidating to people. In one comedy improv class, a girl once raised her hand to complain how towering and scary I am to be in a scene with. All the girls in class chimed in because they felt like that as well. The teacher smiled calmly and said that it can be an asset to have impact. And going out, friends sometimes notice melting looks in girls' eyes when they see me. Some girls are turned on by dominance, and I like that.
My own food is definitely my strong preference. There is something special about the food after spending hours with it in the kitchen. Of course, the first tries of a recipe sometimes end up in the trash.
I can be serious and logical in day to day life. It's a good strategy for dealing with business and outside life. It's also a bit of a professional hazard of dealing with technology all day. When I kick off the shoes in the evening, I really appreciate being emotional, playful, and wild. I'm really happy to bring my logical side to fixing a flat middle in the desert, and you bringing the right brain/emotion.
Our shared intention should be connection and intimacy both emotional, psychologically, and physically. My ideal Saturday would be to lounge in bed cuddling, screwing brains out, talking deeply about how feel and experience the world, and going between that. I like physical touch, skin conversations, and sex. Sex the first time tends to be special in its own way. Yet, the best sex usually only happens after getting to know each other and the deepest, darkest kink fantasies. Somewhere, we'd squeeze in a workout.
Sunday would be going on an adventure somewhere, a road trip, nature thing, urban exploration, workshop, SUP paddling, etc.
I do want a kid or two. Details are negotiable. Having the experience of at least one kid is such a special human experience that I want it. This isn't quite the starting topic: "Hi, what's your name? Okay, let's get started making a kid: 1 - 2 -3." At the same time, it would be better to be friends if that's complete nonstarter.
