My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello and thanks for reading my profile :-)

I am an optimistic, intelligent, introspective, outdoorsy, athletic, kind of guy. I enjoy strolling, hiking, trail running, and cycling.

I also like to write; usually about political and social observations, sometimes about philosophical topics, and occasionally about love. I recently wrote my first children's book. My friends seem to think it's pretty wonderful.

I also like to sit down at a piano and wander about with my hands until I find something beautiful. I like to cook and cooking together is one of my favorite things to do.

I am well read and well educated. I'm quick to laugh and abhor the idea of being mean or spiteful or deceitful to anyone. I can be extremely intuitive. I tend to cycle between interaction and reflection.

I enjoy wine, cheese, fruits, vegetables, and nuts. I like the feeling of having good energy throughout the day. There's a lot of life ahead and I'd like to remain in a good state of health.

I'm looking for a long-term relationship in which two people support each other's efforts to become whole and complete individuals. I'm an O who wants to roll next to another O, as in Silverstein's book. Setbacks and conflicts are opportunities to learn more about ourselves and each other.

I am very stably employed. I am also considering new career paths in resource efficiency upgrades for commercial buildings and writing children's books. How's that for range?

I have owned and lived in a large house on ten acres of land. I'm interested in a smaller, more authentic and more meaningful lifestyle that affords time for adventure and leisure amongst genuine friends.

I am aiming for a life that includes much more traveling in a humble way to authentic places with beautiful people. I want to experience how other people are keeping the sweetness of community alive. I want to see more beaches, rivers, forests, and mountains. But for the moment, it would be nice to just spend time with another person who is stable, warm, and curious about our world and wants to live in an authentic, meaningful life; someone who enjoys good food, good wine, good conversation and the arts; someone who is emotionally mature and also capable of sighing with wonder like a child when enjoying a meteor shower or enjoying the good humor of a round of mini-golf. Fun is good.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Looking for intelligent, thoughtful women who would like to just meet an intelligent, thoughtful man. Researching PACE financing. Attempting to get my first Children's Book published. Distance fathering two incredible teenage daughters. Eating well and exercising so that I have the energy to do what needs to be done.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Questioning, seeking, dreaming, writing, thinking, composing, inventing, creating, strolling, skipping, kissing, petting, applauding, laughing, yammering, bullspewing about my mini-golfing prowess, stargazing, caring, appreciating, massaging, tripping (as in losing my balance and recovering, not dropping acid, I was not very good at that when I tried it in 1987), listening, being openhearted, reviewing, apologizing, adjusting, recovering, evolving, and working towards a better understanding of the people that I care about in my life.

I'm really not good at playing interpersonal games, being deceitful or manipulative. I can be a little shy in the beginning. I'm also a terrible dancer who loves to dance and a terrible singer who loves to sing.

In the past, well-written series have captured me; Northern Exposure, Six Feet Under, Deadwood, Mad Men (so far just first and second season). Also the number of Nova, Nat Geo, and Nature Docs I have seen in my life has to be in the hundreds. I love learning about life on Earth in all of its forms.

Recently: Game of Thrones. Orange is the new Black and House of Cards. True Detectives ... A well-written, well-directed, and well-acted series is like crack for me so I have to be careful about starting one. I have a real life to live.

Radio: NPR's This American Life, Radiolab, Snap Judgement, Selected Shorts and the Moth Radio Hour. These shows are producing some phenomenal stuff these days.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Oxygen and water, preferably from clean sources.
Fruits and vegetables, preferably old school organic.
My computer and the electricity to run it (dammit).
Time with my daughters.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whether I am doing all that I can do to be all that I can be.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There's no such Friday night. I'm always aiming to do something new or go someplace I haven't been before.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Admitting something that qualifies as private on a public forum? Hmm ...
