The one thing I am passionate about...
I've noticed that there is an ebb and flow to these things, and my "passions" have evolved with time. I see them more as a story, and not as enumerable bullet points. So I figured I'd fill this space with one of my favorite quotes:Wisdom is knowing I am nothing,Love is knowing I am everything,Between the two my life flows.
I typically spend my leisure time
A good book, a funny movie, a tennis match, real conversation, yoga, introspection, playing with (i.e. bothering) my cat. Haven't traveled as much as I would like. Almost all my travel has been of the work-vacation variety, and I'd like to be able to share traveling for its sake with a partner. Have recently been feeling a re-kindling of interest in cooking. Hope that lasts, and that a Vitamix is all that is cracked up to be.
The most influential person in my life has been
The first thing people notice about me
Eyes? Sense of humor? Just general awesomeoness? Actually, I have no idea.
The last book I read and enjoyed
"Outliers" by Malcolm Gladwell. An interesting take on what it takes to be successful. Have just started reading "The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down" by Anne Fadiman. Am just a couple of chapters in, but it looks fascinating.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- good fortune
- life experiences
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me

A little more about me
Describing myself in a space such as this compresses me into one-dimension. Instead, I will be succinct and say that I don't have life figured out and it appears as though this process of figuring out never ends - a thought that is strangely both comforting and challenging. Perhaps the experiences in this journey are the point of it. A partner in this journey is what I am seeking. It could begin with a cup of coffee, a nice dinner, or a relaxing evening walking by a lake ...
