I decided to provide everyone with a little more insight about who they are looking at so bear with me!! I am a normal member of the human species with some imperfections, but with the strength and tenacity of ten as well, I strive to live fearlessly and not merely to see life in black and white. I see the many grey areas around us and try to make sense of this wonderful, sometimes wacky world of ours.
Among my many passions are surfing, bits of hiking, camping, running, and exploring caves and open spaces. I love tuning into my senses (not the common ones) optimally- like smelling cinnamon, the damp earth after a light rainfall, and freshly cut grass, feeling the warmth of a loving hug and tasting the sweet in between the sour.
My interests include, but are not limited to, music from Bach to rock, biographies, history, sharing and listening. Challenges that ignite the spark, theatre,( including football and baseball) art and art galleries, wine tasting, recipe books, travelmags, novels and movies, children and the vunerable - the least, last and the lost among us.
I'm adaptable, honest, transparent, don't hold grudges, and enjoy times in the rugged outdoors and much as I do the comforts of my safe haven. I'm open to daring, sporty challenges, animals, children and great music. What I'm not down for is sulking, fighting, cheating, playing games, charge accounts, clubbing, fake nails and fake people.
I love the quiet moments that offer a glimpse into the beauty in art, people, nature, words, and actions. Huge trees, fireplaces, the beach at sunrise or sunset, bonfires, thunderstorms, butterflies, rural places with their rustic charm and charming people. Long dirt roads and crossword puzzles all hold a charming fascination for me with their mystique and the many stories they carry. If they could only talk!!
I believe that passion along with compassion are probably the most important dimensions of the human composition - without that we are left without those dreams and aspirations that keep us going.
So with all that said, I guess what I am looking for is someone who is normal and respectful, honest, stable and consistent in thinking and behavior. Someone who has a curiosity about the world and a joyful passion for life. Someone with humor and integrity.
