My self-summary
I enjoy the movies, opera, and concerts. From Billy Joel to Beethoven, Mozart to the Motown. Recent trips this past 15 months: Venice, Italy; Washington D.C., Toronto, Canada. Recent Books: “Comfortable with Uncertainty”, “The Power of Now”; “Biology of Belief”, "Buddha's Brian", I go to “chick flicks”. Although the “Twilight” movies about killed me :-). San Francisco is one of my favorite cities in the U.S., I think its because my chances of getting a date are double. LOL.

The kids are grown and out of the house. I have a pool that would enjoy more use. Want to go for a dip? Lets look up at the stars together. The basics are well established; steady job, drug fee, all with warmth and humor. I worked for Johnson and Johnson and IBM in the past. I have traveled over 2 million miles, but I am no longer on the road. By the way, that makes me permanent platinum, no waiting to board a flight with me! I have a ton up upgrade stickers. However, the frequent flyer miles are all used, well maybe I have enough for one more trip, are you ready? Is your passport up to date?

I have a spiritual side, and meditate daily, I have been doing it for over 37 year. I been known to hang out with monks and yogis and then go dancing.

I have gone years, at times, without any illness.
What I’m doing with my life
Learning how to run/create a non profit organization. I recent built a large meditation hall on my estate.
The first things people usually notice about me
Even though I travel a lot, I have little baggage. To explain:

"A senior monk and a junior monk were traveling together. At one point, they came to a river with a strong current. As the monks were preparing to cross the river, they saw a very young and beautiful woman also attempting to cross. The young woman asked if they could help her. The senior monk carried this woman on his shoulder, forded the river and let her down on the other bank. The junior monk was very upset, but said nothing. They both were walking and the senior monk noticed that his junior was silent for most of the day and enquired “Is something the matter, you seem very upset?” The junior monk replied, “As monks, we are not permitted to touch a woman, how could you then carry that woman on your shoulders?” The senior monk replied, “I left the woman a long time ago at the bank, however, you seem to be carrying her still.”
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music .. Somewhere in time I started moving my CDs and vinyls to iTunes. I have in the neighborhood hood of 2,400 song (and not everything is converted). I pipe them over the my intranet to my stereo system. As I review my collection I am clearly a child of the 70 and 80s (to a lesser extent, the 60s). The collection includes: the Stones, the Boss, Streisand, Midler, Cher, Dixie Chicks, the Beatles, James Taylor, Led Zeppelin, Michael Jackson, Bob Dylan, Elton John, Rod Stewart, the Beach Boys, U2, Devo ("whip it good" .. who remembers that one? LOL), Willie Nelson, Jonny Cash, ... need I go on. There is also a Motown component, The Supremes, the Big Chill album. However, I also like classical music: Mozart, Beethoven, Bach, and Chopin. On the spiritual side I often find myself playing "new age music", Celtic harps, and the Chant CD (Benedictine Monks). Looking at this, I am at a loss as to what to make of this, I guess I leaving it as an "exercise to the reader". However, it might explain why I occasionally hear the music the planets make as they rotate around the sun (LOL).

I own an extensive library some where in the neighborhood of 800 or so books. Recent readings: Buddha Brain, Biology of Belief, The Power of now, The Brian that Changes it Self, Tough Love, William James Psychology, Heaven is for Real, A few Tom Clancy's books, "Blink" - and other of Malcolm Glandwell books, Bad Money - Kevin
Phillips. I purchased one of the first eReader that Jeff Bezos created. I often give them away as gifts. I have the Wall Street journal delivered .. For some reason I like to have the paper addition ..

Most of my daily content is from the web, I love the Ted lectures:
My current favorite is the from the neuroanatomist

The six things I could never do without
The joy of that comes from Being, some call it Ananda, my boys, although they are men now, and the stars.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What the universe is expanding in to? What would someone who loves themselves do? What would someone who love others do?
On a typical Friday night I am
I work in Fort Worth. Friday night's often finds me attending a Bass Hall performance or one of the "Off Broadway" venues such as the Circle Theater. Sundance square has fee parking in the evening and there is lots to do in this area.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have been wearing the same style of socks to work for 5 years. Oh my, I feel a need to explain this. Well, it all started with the Laundry God. It seemed that every time I washed my clothes, a sock came back missing. Research on the Internet (always credible) yielded that the Laundry God, has a male personification; the Washer Machine. It runs hot and cold, does a lot at thrashing, and can't be disturbed during a football game. Then there is the Female personification; the Dryer, warm and stable, but can get hot quick if she is not treated right or taken for granted! My spiritual friends were surprised that I did not know you had to perform a periodic sock sacrifice to appease them. Ok, me being a transcendental pragmatist, and a busy single Dad, I decided to buy a box of socks. When I say box, I mean 40 pairs of the same style. So now when the sacrifice happens, I no longer care. I never match them up; harmony and balance is restored back to the universe, they get their sock and I get the repeated time savings from not having to match them!

If you like to travel or your interested in going to the DMA or the Kimbel, I have memberships to both. Also, I am alway looking for someone to go to the theater with (The Opera, Bass Hall, or the ATT Perfoming Art center). Liking to ski, meditate, or scuba would be a plus! If you're a yogic flyer, I'll take to to Paris!
