Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Off the market. Thanks for your interest. OK Cupid worked for me!

Why am I still active here? The Matches are an interesting mirror. What does the profile on a high-percentage match lady say about me? Assuming OK Cupid "Gets" me. I'm still in a mode of self-discovery, and this is at least helpful, if examined with a clear eye.

I did it. 39,583 miles around the US in a Chevy van, and have returned to Maine. The trip of a lifetime, and every day was magical.

The reporter just won a statewide award for her article!!!

Trusted advisers tell me I'm courageous, with a tender heart. Even my son agrees. They also speak of great emotional depth, which, I think, cuts both ways. They also think I'm pretty smart, with an active imagination and a huge capacity for love.

Advisers also tell me I'm incredibly kind, but need to work on applying some of that kindness to myself. That takes practice, I am finding. We'll see how it goes. They also tell me I'm a quick study. Good thing, because I keenly understand my impatience with myself!

Oh, and in the interest of full disclosure, I am an ordained minister (did it myself, free, on the internet), with my own church:

If you don't at least smile within 30 seconds, we won't get along.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have moved into my little house on the coast of Maine, now making it a real home, and writing a book. Where did all this stuff come from? I thought I had shed all of it! Well, I'm shedding now, as a lot goes out the door.

I stored bare necessities and a mattress in a Chevy Cargo van, and from March 3, 2013 to the end of October, toured this magnificent land. No set destinations, no set schedules. A lot of photography, and a book to write now, I hope. I called it The Bucket Trip, since it was the top item on my Bucket List. Counter-clockwise around the perimeter of the country, with detours at whim. I slept in the back of the van, mostly, with the occasional motel for showers.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Seeing the big picture. Analyzing. Photographing. Not a bad writer. Pretty good at getting stuff done. Listening. Not taking myself too seriously. I am an excellent cook, and bake fabulous bread.

Oh, and a pretty good driver...unless I have to back the van up. Backing up is terrifying in that vehicle, even after 39,000 miles.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm really tall. Two meters exactly. Tall ladies are welcome to wear heels.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Young Men and Fire, Blue Highways, Blade Runner, Robin and Marian, Buckaroo Banzai, A Wizard of Earthsea, Apocalypse Now, The Lord of the Rings (both the books and movies).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My 23-yr. old son (Assistant Technical Director at Ken Burns' Florentine Films), real books printed on paper, introspection, my cameras, good food (love my own cooking), my Miata (out of storage, reunited!).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My Bucket Trip, around the edge of the country, a la Steinbeck (Travels with Charley) and Heat Moon (Blue Highways), that has given me fodder for a book, which gives justification for my Writer's Cabin on the coast of Maine, where I will live a simple (thrifty??) life. My van's name is Marga, which is Sanskrit for "Path."

A lot of thought went, and is still going into making a home where the love will be so thick you can cut it with a knife. 3.4 acres of waterfront land in Maine, on which I built my little house.

Let's just say I'm easily entertained. 39,000 miles, and not one minute bored. As previously mentioned, every day was magical. Now that I'm back, I want to make every day as magical.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
These days, back in Maine, watching "Shark Tank." I'm thinking of applying to be on the show, and make my church for-profit. What's more American than religion and profit? I would donate all my own profits to help veterans. What's more patriotic than that?

On my trip, I was eating at some out-of-the-way place, eavesdropping on America. Has anyone else been to the Gullah Grub Restaurant in the Low Country of South Carolina?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I love to read to special people out loud, only good books with beautiful language. I love to brush a woman's hair, with a good boar bristle brush, for hours. I think both of these are incredibly intimate activities.

And, well, uh, I nibble frozen Cool Whip as a substitute for ice cream. As a child, I put applesauce on pizza, but no longer.

...you're curious, you're a photographer or artist, or just want to have a friendly lunch or dinner and conversation. A one-meal-stand, no strings attached.

...you were able to read all this and get to the end in anything other than a state of catatonic boredom...

Looking to make new friends for now, sans romance. I'm covered in the romance category, thanks to OK Cupid!
