Happy 7th!

It's my birthday! I've had a complete Swedish breakfast made by surprise as I slept by my wonderful boyfriend. This same hot man showed up at my office with flowers this afternoon following the champagne and cupcake party thrown by coworkers that followed shopping and a meeting with Richard Conlin, head of the Seattle city council on how to make Seattle a carbon neutral city. Now finishing a happy hour with Brandon at maximiliens at the market. Mussels are delicious. Now to head home to the pool before dinner with 16 of my closest friends. Life is beautiful!

5th of July

I used to say I didn't know how to relax or go on vacation, but it's not true. There are merely different methods to achieve calm and a break from daily life. I've found one version that works for me... a beach house with good food and friends. Never a lack of conversation, excellent tastes throughout the day and laughter all the night long. Darryn isn't here, or this would be perfect. It'll make that next trip into relaxation with him that much better.

Love and longing

I've been a happy guy lately, for many reasons including my work, nonprofit, home, family and friends. But the biggest deal to me is that I'm in love. He is charming, kind, funny and handsome... And out of town last weekend and this weekend. So I miss him and not wholeheartedly succeeding in viewing this as a chance for personal growth. I just want my boyfriend back, at least in cell range.

Reset and Go

After a long absence from this blog, I'm going to try and get back to sharing my thoughts with whoever wants to read them. I'll aim to be quick, witty and personal as I contemplate love, life and community.

From the train on the way to Puyallup to meet my family for my 30th birthday.

When I encounter an issue, a room, a store... I want to know the layout, assess all the options and then go back and enjoy the process of exploring. When people ruin movie endings, especially on scary movies, I like it. Apparently this is indicative of going a bit OCD. It works great for getting most things done, I gather information and dive in.

Dating does not work this way I'm beginning to gather. I need a new game plan, a way to just "be".
