I'm deep yet simple, serious yet playful, soulful yet irreverent. Yes, I'm an unsolved mystery. I enjoy nature. Hiking the Na Pali coastline was a great adventure; I vividly remember the joy I felt from the seawater washing over my legs, the waves crashing everywhere. The Valles Caldera gives me a similar experience of the majesty of nature in a totally different setting. The fertility of the earth, the palpable silence, the expansiveness that seems to go on forever.Day trips are great. A drive down the turquoise trail, the hunt for the elusive white sage, used bookstores - these great outings remind me of a time when needs were simpler, where simple pleasures filled our hearts. Dogs are great friends; I find their presence to be the most potent way to soften my heart, and to get me to smile uncontrollably. I don't currently have a canine critter but would be thrilled to receive a wet and sloppy kiss from yours. Silly movies, bad puns, playful bantering, laughing for no reason ... These all remind me that not much in life is as serious as I fantasize it to be. I'm often up for intimate conversations, all kinds of music (as long as it's not loud), cooking us a fine steak, or a mathematical diversion (yes, I'm a geek). I'm always up for surprising you with a tiny yet priceless gift that leaves neither of us with any doubt that I care about you, that our friendship touches me very deeply. Touch is a core part of who I am; holding hands, massage, slow dancing, cuddling by the fire, lingering embraces - it's all good. My perfect match appreciates the masculine and enjoys expressing her feminine. You celebrate life - the ups and the downs. You enjoy the adventure. You respect your body and stay healthy. You are emotionally strong yet soft. You are available. And, yes, the magical ingredients of chemistry matter very much as well. Intrigued? Drop me a line and let's explore one another.
