ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

I've been thinking a lot about the following quote lately: "There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered".

I'm originally from the bay area, though only recently repatriated after seven years in Europe, and another seven years on the East Coast before that. I've been back for almost two years now, but in many ways I still feel like a stranger in my own land; it oscillates between feeling surreal, humorous, frustrating, and even novel at times.

Ultimately, I'm really happy to have returned. I'd like to think that the cumulative experiences I've had along the way have shaped me for the better, and given me a wider foundation for my own philosophy, world view, sense of ethics and life priorities. At the same time... I never stopped missing California.

But let's take a break from the prose. Here's some fun random trivia about myself:
* I've travelled to maybe 25 countries, on 3 continents, probably a good half of them backpacking.
* I travel with multiple passports, it makes me feel like a secret agent :)
* I have a weakness for good belgian beer and quality stouts, porters, etc, and from time to time brew my own.
* I'm pretty handy in the kitchen, I have a pretty tasty repertoire of indian and southeast asian dishes i can cook. And cookies.
* I feel equal parts hippie and nerd (okay, maybe a slight disposition towards the nerd end lately), with interests spanning the spectrum between the two.
* I've performed on stage at Carnegie Hall (barefoot, I should add -- you'll have to ask!)

What I'm looking for here: I think I'm still figuring that out. I'd love to meet the love of my life (who wouldn't?), though I might also have some reservations about jumping straight into a super serious thing (recently out of a LTR). I'm not opposed to the notion if it feels like the right thing, but I think I'd also be happy just to meet a new friend if she made good company. So, no round pegs in square holes -- I guess I'm happy to just take things organically and see where they go.

In terms of what kind of person I'm hoping to meet... In reality I think it comes down to simple chemistry (both physical and intellectual), and a sense of general reciprocity. I'd hope that we'd have some common ground on the things that are most important to each of us, but I also place a high value on being with someone who has a strong sense of individuality, with her own interests and passions in life. That's to say I'd hope there would be things that we'd immediately enjoy about each other, but that we'd also see the potential for growth and exploration, both in the relationship and in ourselves. Overly sentimental maybe, but there it is :)
