Simply put, the dream: I want someone to go do stuff with on beautiful days and make it fun to go do stuff with even when the weather is crap, someone to go out to dinner with and cook with or cook for, someone to watch movies and enjoy music with, someone who appreciates me and whom I can look forward to seeing who will smile when they see me. (And the reality, a nice evening of wine or craft beer and food and conversation could be very pleasant and maybe a good start.) Might you be that man for me? Read along and see: I'm smart, strong, silly, vulnerable, able to fit in, but impossible to pigeonhole. I have a very wide range of interests and believe that life is too short to sit back and wait for it to happen. I believe in true love, but I have lived long enough to know that the perfect match doesn't mean a perfect person. Communication and honesty are prerequisite criteria for me. I love photography and all kinds of art. Visual, musical, verbal, written, art moves me and makes me happy, makes me cry, makes me happy to be alive and be so lucky as to be witness to and participate in creativity and imagination. Low-brow to high-brow, I appreciate all sorts of fun and beauty. Whipped up on the fly, labored over for days, or bought for cheap on the street, I love the pleasures of eating. I love traveling. I've seen a total solar eclipse in Bolivia, summited Mt. Kilimanjaro, jumped off the cliff at the southernmost point in the US (in Hawaii), hiked fjords in Alaska, chilled out in Thailand and Cambodia, made a whirlwind out of visiting Hong Kong and Singapore and Thailand in a week, swum with sea turtles and sea lions and sharks in the Galapagos, tried some rock-climbing, zip-lining, and bungee-jumping, and I want to do SO much more! I just need someone to do it all with. Really though, a lot of the time I find that life itself is all the adventure I need; I can be perfectly content staying home with just the two of us or spending quality time with friends. I've lived here for a long time, but there are still so many things to do and see. As much as I enjoy traveling abroad, I love traveling in Japan, too. I'd like to make it up to Tokyo more often. So ... I love to travel and do things ... Any fun suggestions? ;-) For the Golden Week holiday at the beginning of May a few years ago, I had an awesome 4 days with two close girlfriends climbing some peaks (checked off two more mountains on the list of 100 Famous Mountains in Japan), camping, and going to a couple of hot springs. That summer, I climbed mountains in Hokkaido and Hakuba, and dropped in on Tokyo to party. In the last two years, I traveled to Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand, Okinawa, the Galápagos Islands, Denver, and Australia's Sunshine Coast. Until something or someone otherwise occupies my time, I'll be working, working out, reading, watching movies and my favorite shows, taking photos, meeting up with friends, and checking in here hoping to uncover a rare gem. Who knows, maybe this open-minded, independent, thoughtful, fun-loving Texan woman in Japan will get lucky and find the man who will move heaven and earth and cross the seven seas to be with her!

More About Me

Favorite Movie:

I love movies - my taste is eclectic.

This could be a very long list. I watch a lot. Let's do 2015 so far: Jodorowsky's Dune, Edge of Tomorrow, Big Bad Wolves, Byzantium, Big Eyes, Unbroken, Wild, Berberian Sound System, Imitation Game, Gone Girl, Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi, Bad Milo, I'm Not There, As Above So Below (currently at 1 for worst movie I've seen in 2015. I don't know why I even finished watching it), I Saw the Devil, Interstellar, The Foxcatcher (felt like if I closed my eyes, I could imagine I was still watching Capote - same sound environment, ambience, and pacing from Miller), Nightcrawler (great acting), Birdman (just all-around amazing and an aural feast - I loved how it felt like a stage performance), American Sniper (Ok - even if Eastwood wanted to convey the message that war leaves everyone involved either dead or damaged, it nevertheless serves as propaganda with its killer hero), A Most Violent Year (it may have been about fuel and not garbage trucks, but this whole genre of NJ/NY turf battles just feels dated), Coldwater (surprisingly well acted and a good double feature with American Sniper as studies on assholes and the effects of aggression and violence), The Gambler (there wasn't really anything about this film that felt new or special. Gambler in over his head, suspense as to what will become of him...), Dekigokoro by Ozu with live piano accompaniment - the pianist was fantastic and I really enjoyed the experience, Fury (with all the talk about American Sniper, I don't know why there wasn't more furor over this. Yes, the Nazis were a fucking blight on the Earth that needed to go, but this fails as a questioning film as much as AS. It's well-done, but really still a very standard WWII film -Nazis are bad and the Anericans need to kill them. Hoorah! People die, but the lucky ones survive! Go spend more money on weaponry! From the sound of it, Kyle was an asshole, and at least AS shows that even racist assholes will suffer PTSD from the experience of war - and that is at least a message that needs to be better addressed by everyone.), The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness (an absolutely fantastic documentary about Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli - so beautifully shot, and inspiring. It'll make you an even bigger fan, I promise. I'd double-feature it with Jodorowsky's Dune), A Field in England (more interesting than The Kill List and made me want to watch his other films), Boyhood (Linklater's films are pretty much all the same, aren't they? While I admire everyone's 12-year commitment, that's really the only thing that sets this film apart. Also, I doubt I'm the only one who would have been more interested in a completely different story that focused on Patricia Arquette's character. It was because of her and the fun of Texas location-spotting that I enjoyed this more than most of Linklater's other films), Dark Touch (I sought this one out because the director is a woman, Marina de Van. I wanted something more than what she delivered in this movie. The acting was good, especially the little girl, but the movie itself just got a little boring. I'd double-feature it with Big Bad Wolves), Return to Oz (made in the early 80s before anyone realized the 70s were really over; and when Disney dropped some acid), Synecdoche (in two words, beautifully sad), As We Were Dreaming (about aimless east German teens who love booze, music, and each other. Not very watchable, but I learned a little about growing up in East Germany just pre- and post-unification), True Story (good acting and filmed well, but even as interested as I was in the story, I started thinking about halfway through that someone else should have written the screenplay and directed it), Samba (lovely and sexy romantic comedy that made me want to believe in the highly improbable in that perfect way that French films can), and the last batch I watched, I don't have time to really comment on: Ex Machina (mostly meh), Nebraska (absolutely loved this film), Oldboy (amazing), Shame (Steve McQueen and Fassbender are brilliantly talented, amazing film about the pain of shame), and You're Next (great for the genre).

Favorite Book:

Some Writers: Cormac McCarthy (everything but The Road), Margaret Atwood, Naomi Shihab Nye, Faulkner, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Ursula K. LeGuin, Stevie Smith, Ali Smith, Dorothy Parker, MFK Fisher, Stephen King, Barbara Kingsolver, Ballard, Burroughs, Raymond Carver, Haruki Murakami, Tolkien, John Scalzi, Peter Matthiessen, Alice Walker ...

Some Books: 1984, Animal Farm, Lord of the Flies, Fahrenheit 451, Charlotte's Web, The Little House on the Prairie, The Little Prince, Home Comforts, The Mists of Avalon, ...

Harper's and Granta are my two favorite magazines.

Favorite Food:

Food: pizza, ice cream, Tex-Mex, big salads, filet mignon, strawberries, eggplant, mushrooms, olives, gobo/burdock, yamaimo, shrimp, crab, zucchini, chicken, falafel, avocados, Italian/Thai/Japanese/Indian/Greek/Ethiopian ...

Drinks: pineapple/guava/mango juice, coconut water, coffee, Yorkshire Gold tea, green tea, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and many other fine beers, margaritas (Patron, on the rocks, with salt), wine, Cuba Libres, Bloody Mary's, vodka sonics at Centre Point.

Favorite Music:

I love it. Lots of it. All kinds. Again, I have very wide-ranging taste in music.

The only things I really can't stand are certain varieties of contemporary country and really cheesy R&B.

A mix of examples of things I love even if I don't listen to them often and music that's on heavy rotation: Nina Simone, Diamanda Galas, Cat Power, Bjork, Shovels and Rope, Interpol, Queens of the Stone Age, Fleetwood Mac, Beastie Boys, LCD Soundsystem, Run the Jewels, Pink Floyd, Rihanna, really, all kinds - these lists get long. I wish there was more live music in Hiroshima - it and live theater are the two things I complain about most living here.

Dress Style:

I hardly ever wear t-shirts (just a few favorites), but I do like jeans. I wear dresses to work all summer long and wear long pants in the winter (I'm practical like that!). I like to dress up for parties. I'm perfectly comfortable wearing a little black dress, black leather pants, or a black string bikini.

Humor:

Easy. I cannot remember jokes to save my life. If it's a good one, you can keep on telling it to me again and again. See what I mean? Easy. I like to laugh; I can be sarcastic and I appreciate wit.

Hobbies & Interests:

I love eating, drinking, taking photos, hiking, bicycling around town, camping with friends, traveling, going to the gym/ jogging, doing yoga, practicing aromatherapy, going to onsen, going to music festivals/DJ events/live shows, watching TV and movies, reading, going to museums, and trying new things.

Travelled:

I've only been to 13 countries. I'd like to go everywhere else.

Cultural Adaption:

If they are very flexible, I can be, too.

Romance:

You'd surprise me with flowers at work or when I met up with you on Friday evening, then we'd go for dinner and drinks. We'd spend the night together and have a lovely morning together on Saturday. Then we'd go and do something on Saturday afternoon - it doesn't matter where - it could be for a hike, on a drive, to a museum, bungee-jumping, to a great new movie - as long as it was exciting - and if we like each other, then doesn't that make everything more exciting? We'd enjoy eating and drinking together. Then we'd go back home or to our hotel and spend some quality time together. If we were traveling, then on Sunday, we'd do some exploring and sightseeing or maybe just spend the day at the beach. If we were staying in town, we'd go for brunch and then, either way, we'd go back to spending some more indoor quality time together. We'd listen to some music, take a bath and watch a video - and spend some quality time together. That all sounds very busy, doesn't it? Honestly, I'm flexible. The whole idea of "perfect" is a bit daunting. It's true, though, I want it all. Are you good at planning these kinds of things? You are? Terrific! Wonderful! Yay!

Personality:

I'm straightforward, flexible and easygoing, but I don't put up with a lot of BS. I'm thoughtful, caring, and pragmatic.

My Perfect Match is:

I like a man who is smart, comfortable in his own skin, straightforward, imaginative, has life experiences to share, who can tell a good story, knows himself well, is confident about his strengths, aware of his weaknesses, observant, sensitive, raunchy, likes to win but isn't a sore loser, and has the ability to both lead and listen. And who makes me laugh and smile and feel absolutely bathed in such passionate love for me that I can share myself completely with him.

If you write me with only one or two lines: "Hi/Hello/How are you" or some version of "nice photo" or "I'd like to get to know you", then I will know that you either just randomly fishing and not genuinely interested in me or you are simply lazy. Either way, the likelihood of me responding to a message that could be for anyone is slim to zero.
