Is your journey more important than the destination?

in his own words...

My dad once said..."Life is a series of perfect moments. It's up to you to string them together." It took me a little while to discover that the trick was not in making the moments given to you perfect, but in recognizing that they already are. I've lived my life and made my choices, the good ones and even the ones that turned out poorly, with the intention to experience as much as each moment had to offer.

Be prepared for someone who has extraordinarily varied interests... from Sunday mornings with a killer cup of coffee and Chet Baker on the stereo, to long roadtrips with no destination, a cold beer on opening day at Camden Yards to flip-flops and champagne on the beach, a studio apartment with a roofdeck view of DC to a New Mexican mountain cabin fireplace, and hole in the wall dives to amazing restaurants, or better yet, dinner for two at home, prepared together.A strong, independent woman who values a mannerly, traditional man with strong family ties; who isn't intimidated by intensity, loves passion and the occasional impetuous act, and who implicitly understands that "traditional" doesn't fall under the category of "neanderthal".
