A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF... Writer, Performer, Singer-Songwriter Musician, One who lives, thinks, knows, intuits...WAY outside-the-box ... some would call...a Renaissance Man. Nature-lover.

A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF... Writer, Performer, Singer-Songwriter Musician, One who lives, thinks, knows, intuits...WAY outside-the-box ... some would call...a Renaissance Man. Nature-lover. Into natural alternative healing ways... from healthy eating to living giving ways that give back to the planet and to the world... on a unique path that, to the very blessed of my ability, I hope is heart-centered, soul-aware...and equal parts spiritual and sensual. I speak Japanese fluently ("Hontou ni Nihongo o waritou futsuu ni hanasemasu. Denwa de hanasu toki wa Nihonjin janai koto ga barenai baai ga oi desu. Nihon no chanto shita kyoiku o uketa koto ga nai no de, Yomi, Kaki no hou wa yowai desu kedo, hanasu hou wa nantoka.... Kodomo to wakai otona no koro...Nihon ni 17 nenkan sunda ita no de..."), and I can get around some in Spanish. In both Japan and in the U.S., I have taught English as a Second Language...and did English-Japanese translation work ("Dohji-Tsuuyaku", etc.) for many years. As much as possible, avoiding ways that look and smell like a "tourist", I do love to travel and take in many cultures and connect in heart-to-heart ways with real people everywhere. Travel will likely be a big part of my work and life...as I seek to find ways to brighten the world a bit through what I do. ( I plan to visit Japan often in the near future...and also... between many travels, I love Japan, and I'm open to living there part of the time as well. I'm not typical American, or typical anything. I'm just "me". A very "free spirit". Very unique. Very global. I send much love to the world every day that I live. It's a "good vibe" thing--the way I live..as much as possible...from my heart. I hope to meet someone who can really appreciate my unique way of being...just as I know that I will honor and "celebrate" the beauty of her spirit and heart as well! = warmest, hopeful-est smile =) I have a deep sense of "calling" and purpose about what I do in my work that is all about "personal growth" and inner journeys...yet I tend to do it mostly through playful performance and music as well as speaking and writing. It's a big part of who I am, so I tend to look for someone who shares a "big picture" view of life...or at least someone who is very open to receiving and expanding with me as we learn and grow together. (For more about what I hope for in a partner...please see my heart-sharing words below.)

WHO I'M LOOKING FOR... Since some say sometimes it seems like I'm "married" to my work, it's important for me to find someone who can honor the big part of my life that it seems to take up. Yet, although when alone, yes...I do tend to "throw" myself into my work much of the time, my goal, overall,...
WHO I'M LOOKING FOR... Since some say sometimes it seems like I'm "married" to my work, it's important for me to find someone who can honor the big part of my life that it seems to take up. Yet, although when alone, yes...I do tend to "throw" myself into my work much of the time, my goal, overall, is just to have a beautiful balance of work and play with my loving-est partner...and create a life that radiates much joy...from a deeply-shared heart-and soul connection that enables us to live "in the moment" and from our hearts, in the most loving ways that hopefully we can discover two-gether..as one! Much of this may sound too "mushy", dreamy or unrealistic to some. But it's a big part of where I come from. I really want to make a difference in the world while I'm here...and I know that it works best to do my best to "just be" what I hope to see in the world...and hopefully have the privilege of sharing this with a partner who feels the same way...as we know how to be quite "happy" within. (Another person can't really "make" you happy. Happiness is from the inside out. Another person can only add to the happiness that is there. Like yummy "icing" on your heart "cake". Unhappy people will usually not become happy with a partner. They will only create unhappiness together. But once you know how to be at peace and have joy and love in your own heart, then it's likely you can multiply whatever you have with a deeply loving partner!) I look for someone who has a very playful, fun-loving and sensuous spirit and yet has a depth of soul where we can share deeply as well. And much of this can be "beyond words". In matters of soul connection, words often feel very small anyway. So it will likely be more of a "telepathic" kind of connection...where we'll just "get" each other. That may be a lot to ask, I know. = grin = And finding our way to each other through these tiny word-boxes may be quite a miracle to begin with, so why not be very clear about what kind of miracle or magic" or amazing connection it is I'm dreaming of? You never know...until you dream...what you might be able to "dream up" or create! And you'll never know what you might experience that's "beyond your wildest dreams" if you've never dreamed them! Someone with a gentle spirit, a warm heart, a caring soul... someone who looks to develop inner beauty in herself...and tends to see this in others...would be a delight...to get to know as a "heart friend"...or maybe more. All starts with the "foundation" of genuine, respectful friendship. Any REAL-ationship would be built on this very solid foundation. Someone who may be younger, older, very unique...(I've been close to beautiful transgender souls as well.) doesn't matter...what matters most is that you know how to "just be" you...and being open to learning from each other and growing, expanding together. Genuine friendship is a rare gift. I hope to cultivate that with some very authentic people...and "unwrap" that gift in each "present" moment shared together...and, while expressing plenty of respect for each person who graces my path...maybe I will have the privilege of finding someone who is the rarest jewel. I'm hoping that I will find her soon. I'm hoping she will think of me as a rare treasure as well! No, I'm not looking for anyone perfect. For then, I would be mis-matched, for sure...since I'm far from that. But it would be amazing to be with someone with whom I can grow and expand...in a heart-union that will enable us to really grow and expand and be all we can be instead of limiting or suppressing each other as many relationships tend to do. For me, it starts with mutual respect and heartfelt, warm best-wishes. In that kind of setting...Who knows? Maybe beautiful things can happen! Wow! You're still reading my words? Thank you! I'm honored by all of your time, keen focus and kind attention! = warmest, gladdest smile = If you are someone who can receive this kind of deep, heartfelt sharing...and would love to overflow from your heart in the same way--with or without words... then, maybe we should talk. It might be possible to create a beautiful heart-friendship. And once that "foundation" is there...who knows what is possible? Whatever you "make" any of this... I do wish you much peace... much joy...and most of the love in your heart from which all else flows. And once you know and feel deeply the love in your own heart... maybe you will have the privilege of finding a partner who will help to multiply the beauty of your loving heart and spirit that is already there! I wish you all the very blessed!

More About Me

Favorite Movie:

HALLMARK HALL OF FAME Movies ("What the Deaf Man Heard", "Scarlet Pimpernel"), ROM COMs, many DOCs, BIOs, heart-warming, inspiring fare

Favorite Book:

I could narrow it down to the top 50 for you... = grin = Some that stick out in my mind off-hand... TRANSLUCENT REVOLUTION, ACROSS TIME AND DEATH (Bio), SCIENCE OF MIND, etc. etc. Mostly personal growth, bios, much non-fiction. If traveling alone...I enjoy doing listening to audio books for fiction sometimes on long road-trips...in bite-size pieces... between great music which is the most important companion for such events...other than the biggest blissing-blessing--a beautiful heart-and-soul-mate.

Favorite Food:

I'm fish-etarian, mostly...with occasional dips into "happy" chicken...not big on cows...even happy ones...and no pork. Big on healthy eating, overall. Whole grains, much "lighter" fare...as long as I can get the protein need taken care of which I tend to do better to get more of, it seems...as long as it's "lighter" (more easily-digested) protein.

Japanese food is likely my best "soul food" although I have some American favorites...and many other Asian favorites.

Safety Tip - Love at first sight?

Be suspicious of online dating acquaintances who profess their love for you after just a few minutes or after a few emails or instant messages; love is generally an acquired feeling. Claiming instant, undying love for someone is a ploy often used by scammers who prey on the emotions of online dating users. Report anyone who you are suspicious about by clicking the "Report Abuse" icon.
