In their own words

A simple guy into poetry, nature, arts, reading, learning.

Hello. درود بر تو همزبان. گرچه همدلی از همزبانی بهتر است. I'm a simple guy; somewhat naive, kind, useful, aware and a leftist. Looking for someone simple, kind, and curious about the world. I’m plain yet sophisticated, mature yet young; serious yet could be funny (at times); curious about people and places, almost like a child. I've lived at and worked in many places on our beautiful planet and have learnt from and shared experiences with people on many different lands. I care about the well-being of my body and mind. I'm a nonsmoker, nondrinker, and a vegetarian. I'm into nature, arts, cinema, reading, and poetry. I definitely don't care that much about the little things in life, like possessions, what's fashionable, or looking good. My desert island essentials are books (John Berger, Bertolt Brecht, Molana, and a few others) pen (a good fountain pen with a smooth nib), paper, strong fragrant tea, a bicycle, and maybe fizzy water; a samovar would be a luxury. I read a lot. I love everything in nature, the woods, mountains, waters, plants; watermelon, pomegranate, papaya, mango, passion fruit, and spices and chilli (lots of it). William Blake said everything that lives is holy, and I feel one way to live a fuller life, is to love everything that lives. I value kindness; especially kindness to strangers. A sort of kindness that would lead to sisterhood and brotherhood between all of us. And it was Blake again who observed: "...nor Man can exist but by Brotherhood".

Insights
Do you believe in love at first sight?
No
How important is someone's physical appearance to you?
Very little but I care about cleanliness and being health-conscious.
If you could have one super power, what would it be and why?
Making sure all children all over the world, no matter how affluent their parents were, had basic food, education, health, plenty of fun and play, and received love and nurturing in a safe and peaceful environment to reach their potentials.
What is the most important lesson that you've learned?
You can never do a job well unless you love what you do. Shut up and listen. You cannot force people to see the world you see it. Do not depend on/insist to be liked. Never stay at a job that makes you unhappy. Never lie to yourself.
What turns you off?
glamour, self-righteousness, ignorance, lots of make-up ( that includes very long fingernails, plastic or silicone or Botox in any of a person's bits, fake eye lashes)
What turns you on?
intelligence and sharp mind, being a leftist, authenticity, kindness, depth, wit, honesty, nice eyes,
