Favorite Quotes"What matters is not taking it easy, but taking it right and true. The mind does not tire from true work, nor the body from moving efficiently.

But I see things that never were, and say "Why not?". --Edward Kennedy, spoken in the eulogy for, and of, his brother Robert Kennedy. "I see now that that there is not just one truth;--it is all true..." -Ernest Hemingway

Who I Would Like to MeetCompassionate, loving, worldly, open-minded, thoughtful, curious, inspirational, motivating, considerate, faithful. Oh, and patient and self loving.
Where You Were RaisedOregon. I have traveled to many states in the NW and Florida and I have spent some time in Europe. I would like to spend more time in Europe and travel in Asia.
Others Noticepassionate, some say shy at first until I Feel comfortable with them. It depends on the person. I am not a social butterfly but I can be. I study groups before I respond. Difficult question because everyone I meet thinks different about me. I have no idea.
Favorite FoodOh my! Another vast topic! I love food from all over the world and I love to cook it. I go to international markets and ask the people who work there about secrets. I buy whole spices and pick up odd ingredients to cook with because I love food and culture. This topic is way to big to type out for me.
Favorite PlacesI like trying out new things and experiencing new cultures. I am very open-minded. Seeing local bands or going camping or spending time with family or checking out local events that support our economy. I don't know how to answer this.
Life GoalsWell, get back into my career since the economy changed it. I want to do what I have been doing in the printing industry/commercial sign business. I like to built things behind a computer and work with my hands. I hope to find a woman to love and get married and have a house, maybe take on her children or have children of our own if I haven't run out of time, or spend that money on traveling with my lover around the world to enjoy food and culture when we can set vacation time. Life is short. I want both. Time will tell. Either or.
