Kind of awkward, so bear with me! ;o)
I just moved to Oakland from the city so tour me around!
Like most people that live in the Bay Area, I do love the outdoors, staying fit and traveling (I even prefer the road less traveled) - hiking, camping, snowboarding, tropical weather surfing and scuba diving, yoga, Pilates, kayaking, paddle boarding, indoor climbing... But I also do enjoy down time, movies, reading, listen to NPR every day, good coffee, cooking, red wine, food! I don't mind getting dirty camping and love sleeping under the stars, and can easily do elegant as well. You know, I think there's just no accurate description for the smell of mountain air after snow has fallen...or the feeling you get when you've seen an amazing sunset.
I believe in living a healthier existence without the need for constantly trying to reach the status quo..I strive for balance and like being inspired by little things each day ... truly passionate about life!
I'm easy going, independent, openminded, silly, quite goofy and pretty spontaneous. Passionate about all kinds of music. I like going with the flow and I love meeting people and gaining different perspectives and broadening my horizons which is probably why I'm trying this online thing as well, to enjoy meeting new friends and new folks.
On to the deeper stuff: i feel it's important to be on the path of developing my sense of self. I have immense respect for the intrinsic nature of people and events we encounter. "Let each moment be as it is" has had a powerful impact in who I am.
