to be fully present in the moment
I like antiquated words, the smell of bleach, and dancing idiotically. Not necessarily at the same time.
I'm trying to take life in one moment at a time.
I am respectful, a good listener, quirky, and openminded.
I've travelled extensively, but prefer immersion over dabbling. I grew up all around the world, USA, South Africa, and Poland, spent a semester abroad in Turkey, and am now living in Peru .
the world is so much bigger than just you.
music, esp live music.
art museums, libraries, and other quiet spaces.
bicycles, early morning rides or late night rides.
lazing around outside.
cooking real meals.
trying new things.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
In the southeastern part of Turkey at the Tigris River, we stood in golden wheat fields rustling at the top of a hill, staring out at the old cave houses and ancient Ottoman tombstones. This was the beginning of all civilization.
