Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A friend told me to put my age in the 40s but I can't lie. I've
been told I am a bohemian. I live for beauty rather than wealth or
posterity. Beauty in language is poetry, in movement is dance or
yoga, in vision is painting or photography... charging the world
with Imagination. Beauty is health and vigor: action. I am
ultimately looking for a deep whole energy connection with a lover,
but respect and appreciate the playfulness of honest pleasure; I've
found happiness in many places along this spectrum.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Playing and arranging music is the most important thing: very
diverse creative projects, not a 'career'. If we can play music
together AND be lovers that would be excellent, but not necessary.
Traditional/'folk', jazz and rock and weird stuff. Fiddle, guitar,
song, acoustic/electric. I earn a humble but sufficient living as a
substitute teacher, so I am never broke and very free. Enjoy
practicing massage: I went through school and might yet do it
professionally. Visit England regularly, and other countries when I
can. Trying to spread a culture of intelligence, beauty and joy.
Life was not meant to be dull. And I love wilderness: it's the only
way to appreciate the city.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making a picnic hamper. Irony. You be the judge of that. Sincerity.
Improvising music and food. Precise and exhilarating language
(Poetry). Puns. Meeting new people and finding common ground.
Keeping fit and balanced (biking, yoga, chi gung...).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
They may wonder where I'm from. Face as well as accent. My humour
and wit?? Possibly an eccentric article of clothing or two.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Intelligence and taste! I used to meditate and read tons, spiritual
philosophy, poetry, healing arts. Less now. William Blake. Thomas
Traherne. Poetry in translation. 50 Shades of Grey. Anais Nin.
Hollywood went to hell (or vice versa) about 40 years ago. Foreign,
arty, or older movies are more likely. Ditto music: wide-ranging
and specific. And not hideously loud. Folklore. Anything I've
recently discovered (currently Turkish and Portuguese music).
Forget TV. Thai food! Taco trucks and my own-cooked omnivorous
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I could do without a lot of things, and sometimes even do. But
fresh air and exercise are pretty helpful. Variety of experience
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How best to spend my next hours, weeks... Music. I try not to spend
much time "thinking": where does it get you? Much rather be engaged
in utter relaxation, or getting some good exercise on the yoga mat
or the bike or a decent walk, good company, cooking, or reading
some superfine poetry, probably from a long time ago.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
...well, there ought to be a gig (not too loud) or a party. Or a
dinner. But nothing is ever typical. If I had a sweetheart...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
You mean what I would never tell my friends? OK here goes! I am a
genius, unique and humble, and I love my body and my self, they are
strong and beautiful and sensually alive, very sexy. But I would
never say these things.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Well, if you know yoga or related arts you'll probably have a
richer sense of experience, physical and otherwise: I like that.
But,er... also if you do not say 'like' every other word, and go up
chronically at the end (up-speak). If you refrain from doing these,
we'll probably get on fine. Also if you spend too much social time
noodling with your phone I won't want to talk no matter how sexy
you are. Call me old-fashioned. But call me.
