Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Mary Oliver writes, "What are you going to do with your one wild,
precious life?" Something about who I am is how much this speaks to
me... I'm gentle and kind and passionate about people and things
that matter to me. I'm smart and easy to be with, and there's an
intensity about me. Perceptive, attuned, musical, a yogi. I have a
quirky sense of humor and am playful and in my body kind of
playful. I have lots of interests, some of which I wrote about
here, many not. I had written a more substantial profile but
shortened it for various reasons which you can ask me about.
I am really looking for a kindred spirit, a natural and deep
connection that grows over time. You will probably really like me
if you're an evolving type of man...
A note that I don't have children, but only because of where my
life took me earlier on, and would welcome yours with respect and
an open heart.

I am so distant from the hope of myself,
in which I have goodness, and discernment,
and never hurry through the world
but walk slowly, and bow often.
Around me the trees stir in their leaves
and call out, "Stay a while."
The light flows from their branches.
And they call again, "It's simple,"they say.
"and you too have come
into the world to do this, to go easy, to be filled
with light, and to shine."
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Connecting with people and putting them at ease, singing, dancing,
being healthy, my work, being serious and not being
serious...actually both are true.
