Hello balance seeker. I'm Ziggy, a 28yo guy living in berkeley. I'm looking for someone who can breathe passion back into my life. It's sad when you get so used to being alone that you almost forget the feeling of being close to another person.

I'm a veggie, looking for the same. Politically i'm very far to the left, but i'm also a believer in not forcing my morality onto others. I'm an aspiring musician, but now work doing theatre tech work.

I want someone who is fun and exciting, adventurous, passionate, yet yearning for someone like me. I'm probably unlike most people you'll meet. I'd love to chat with you more. I naturally have a warm spot in my heart for all vegetarians. It's just so gross imaging kissing someone who eats meat! Talk with you soon!
peace and love

Thanks for replying. Good to meet another vegetarian in Berkeley. Where do you do your theater tech work? I used to be involved in theater when I was younger - I'd like to get back to it, but I fear it would be too time-consuming in addition to my full-time job and music rehearsals.

What instrument(s) do you play? Or do you sing? I'm taking jazz classes at the Albany Adult School. We have a combo called the Albany Jazz Project that has done some local gigs. I also sing open mic at Anna's Bistro in downtown Berkeley every month.

Hey, I like that poster behind you in your picture. I'm intrigued by dragons - I have a novel about them in the works (very early stages though). Have you read any books by Anne McCaffrey or Ursula Le Guin (my favorite)?

Is that ad on craigslist about breast enlargement yours? I agree with you completely - I have no interest in and am saddened by that sort of drastic body modification. I don't even wear makeup or jewelry, myself. It is nice to find someone who isn't primarily interested in physical appearance.

Well, check out my web site (in my sig) if you'd like to find out more about me... there are some photos on there if you poke around a bit... hope to hear back from you soon...

- Julie

Forgot to respond to this bit. I am leaning pretty far in that direction myself. I am currently a Green Party member but I'm really borderline socialist. I don't even invest in the stock market. I do believe that financial integrity is important though - for individuals as much as for corporate and government entities. I'm planning to put up some web pages on money and transportation (I don't own a car) that will further illustrate my views in that direction - probably won't get them up for a few days yet though.

Tis Ziggy again. I'm so sorry for dropping you like i did. You wrote me earlier and you completely intrigued me at a time which i had none. I didn't respond quickly and before i knew it i forgot about your email. You sound like an incredibly kewl and spiffy person though, one who'd i'd really love the chance to get to know more.

I'm still a busy little bugger, but i promise you that if you write back to me i won't drop you again!

I love your website. I feel very close to you artistically. :)

Write soon
peace and love
