Hello friends! More and more I realize one of the most important qualities to me in a desirable companion is a commitment to--or open-mindedness towards--things spiritual (though there's no separation between the spiritual and physical anyway.) A man's ability and desire to humble himself enough to accept and want to live according to principles that may not be so en vogue (I am realizing) may be finding its place at the top of my list of desirable qualities I would want in a companion-- even above intellectual curiosity & artistic passion-- which are also immensely important to me. Which is why I find myself here. I may still have questions, but I am not bothered by questions. I am a truth-seeker, a lover of light & goodness, looking for same.
I write poetry, which may feel somewhat odd to say out loud. I completed an MFA in creative writing a few years ago and am currently working on getting my manuscript published. I work at a literary agency by day, and often find myself practicing mixing records on my turntables at night (I love electronic dance music, except not the commercial horrible stuff you probably thought of as soon as I wrote that.) I love art in all of its forms; creation is to me the supreme activity without which life would feel far less meaningful.
I've been lucky to have had the opportunity to live and travel all over the world. I've led a full life and continue to, and I feel immensely grateful every day. To be able to share more of this beauty with someone intimately is why I'm here. If any of what I've written resonates, I'd love to hear from you.
