My self-summary
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 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.

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!

I disagree with a couple things in the "Personality" section here. There's more spirituality flowing than meets the eye. More independence, too. Thrifty should not be confused with a lack of generosity. Otherwise, not half bad in the accuracy department. Some of the thriftiness comes out of the lack-of-kindness-to-myself stuff, I'm learning. I'm slowly realizing that I deserve to be treated well, particularly by 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
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.

The two biggest highlights were meeting Jimmy Carter in Plains, GA, and seeing lots of gators in the Everglades. Got pix to prove it!

I could live in Bandon, Oregon - the prettiest beaches in the northwest, but overall, I saw no place nearly as appealing than Maine. Add to that incredible luck in finding a beautiful piece of land, a good builder, and a darn good design, and I think I'm slated to own a place in paradise.
I’m really good at
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 really tall. Two meters exactly. Tall ladies are welcome to wear heels.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
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
My 22-yr. old son (Assistant Technical Director at Ken Burns' Florentine Films), coffee, my laptop, my cameras, good food, my Miata (currently in storage).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
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 Marga, is which is Sanskrit for "Path."

A lot of thought is going into making a home where the love will be so thick you can cut it with a knife. I bought 3.4 acres of waterfront land in Maine, and am building 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
On my trip, 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?

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?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
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.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 40–58
  • Located anywhere
  • For new friends
You should message me if'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. 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!
