I enjoy life and living. And I enjoy making other people feel good! I value honesty and sincerety above everything else. I believe that most (All?) people have a great, sometimes hidden, potential to acheive great things. They just require the right catalyst in order to fully bring it out.
I live though my senses: whether it's a listening to lovely piece of music, going for a run down a forest track until my muscles ache and sweat is dripping off me whilst breathng in the damp, musty forest smells and enjoying the sunlight that trickles down through the leafy canopy above me. Or baking a delicious. calorie-ridden cake from the very finest ingredients. Or resting my head on the shoulder of someone I love. Reading a book, a novel, a short story. Enjoying the way someone uses ink on paper to build worlds, characters, stories and poetry. Travelling, seeing and feeling a place that is new to me, or a place that is familiar but that I have been missing for far too long. Running my fingers across a beautiful piece of clothing or the glossy surface of a new pair of shoes.
I strive not for perfection, but for improvement. And improvement requres change. I am not afraid of the new, and I try to see everything that happens, good or bad, as an experience from which I can learn something.
I do not travel lightly: I like to bring souvenirs back home with me, and I like my creature comforts. However, I am not fussy, and as long as things are clean, I get a good night's sleep and some exercise I am usually happy. I am a foodie of great proportions, so good tips on restaurants, coctail bars or quality grocery stores are always welcome. Oh, and feed me a piece of really good chocolate cake, and I'm yours forever! ;)
