My self-summary
I live in Seattle so by default I am deep, caring, sensitive, Politically Correct and entirely self-actualized; these are not necessarily traits I had from childhood but I had to show proof prior to being allowed to own property within the city limits. (Life is funny and I refuse to see it otherwise or allow an opportunity for observance to slip by, within reason.)

OK, now for the obligatory "online dating" stuff; you know, relationships, "LOVE" fer cryin' out loud! It's clear to me that I had a good take on this way back when I first noticed members of the opposite camp. I see someone to whom I am attracted, I engage them in conversation and, based on the person revealed and their level of interest in and to me, I evaluate my level of interest in them and so forth; 'simple. The amount of money someone has or makes has no bearing, nor does some arbitrary level of social status. I am interested in what, how, (sometimes whether) people think; the amount of work they have done on themselves; their enthusiasm for life; their CHARACTER.

I knew from pretty early on, (4th Grade to be exact) that I didn't want a 9-to-5 life. I pursued a career as a professional musician and it has turned out to be a wonderful, life-long learning experience that has afforded me a comfortable existence to boot. A few years ago, I added vintage motorcycle restoration as a "day job" of sorts and that has proven to be an invaluable adjunct. Long story short; I get paid to do things I really, really like, (everyone should have my problems!) Having come through the insecurities of my 20's, the uncertainties of my 30's and the realities of my 40's I find myself well ensconced in my 50's with an ever-clearing view of what is of real importance to me.

So, in the midst of this abundance, I realize that life could be better with the right woman. That, however, is a tall order as this must be someone that attracts me physically, stimulates me intellectually, nurtures me emotionally and inspires me spiritually all the while dealing with my many shortcomings.

So, that's it. I'm having a great time and looking to share it with someone.
They will have to have their own thing going on, too.
The combination will be dynamite.
