As one person, I can learn anything I want. But it doesn't matter if I don't have someone to share my knowledge with. Until my knowledge is shared it sits there on a shelf like a read book that isn't useful (but it really is). But when I get to share it with someone who is interested, it's like the best mental adventure ever. Our minds expand beyond their own boundaries and the outcome is far greater than the sum of its parts.
As one person, I can experience endless beauty. I can appreciate nature in the most awe-filled ways. I can be so grateful and enjoy the peace and silence. But I can't describe the purest beauty to anyone, there aren't words that capture it, it's an experience that has to be shared. And when I'm experiencing beauty, all I want to do is share it. And it makes the experience even better if my hand is being held.
I LOVE stories. As one person, I wouldn't have anyone to share stories with. A life without sharing stories is a life that would be meaningless and empty to me. I'm a Jew, we're storytellers. And I'm a Jew that comes from a long line of ancestors who were great rabbis...it's in my blood to love stories.
I play. I laugh. I'm goofy. I'm crass...and everything in between. And I can't do that by myself. I need someone to play with.
I love sailing. It's an experience that is meant to be shared. In that picture of me pulling up the sail, someone had my back and was tailing for me and making sure we stayed on course with the wind so my strength could pull up our massive sail. It takes two.
There are so many more things that are important to me that I could have written about, but this is enough to give you just a taste of who I am.
