Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
The older and theoretically wiser I become, the more I realize the
fundamental perverseness of essays such as these. My ego already
has enough hold over my being for me to stroke it further by
writing an erudite, witty and engaging synopsis of who I am.
And how does one fill it out? A resume of what I have accomplished?
My deepest desires? All my untapped potential?
Let's try a little gratitude. The Universe is quite fascinating in
its incessant insistence upon giving us not what we want, but
exactly what we need. It's our responsibility to figure out what
that means. Yes, we can spend our time whining and screaming and
pounding our fists. And I do a fair amount of that myself. But when
the quiet comes, so does the openness to the potential wisdom
inherent in all situations and the faith that helps us to open
ourselves to it. It's a process, not a place, and I believe it is
one that takes a lifetime.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
So is this the spot people bravely put out their best side? Noting
their incandescent smile, their deep dark eyes or their
The answer depends on the situation, like always. I don't present
the same face so I cannot say with any degree of certainty what
people notice, and whether that is a positive or a negative. Am I
dressed up as in my profile pic, or am I running to the store in a
natty t-shirt and dirty hair, engulfed by fatigue and irritation?
I'm guessing the reactions might be different.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Best way to sum it up: literary and musical whore. And damn proud
of it. Of course there are favorites--among authors Neil Gaiman
would be one. Yet new ones are always being discovered--Edward St
Aubyn being another. (Thank you Esquire!)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Yes, I could live without these things, but their presence makes
life a joy
Goat cheese and Dark chocolate
My furry, cloven hooved and webbed footed children
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why time is moving so incredibly fast. And I am told on good
authority it just gets worse. Not near enough time in the day for
all I would like to accomplish. I'd love to journey back in time
and be 7 again, facing a long summer vacation of endless days with
nothing better to do than ride my bike to the back woods down the
old country lane where the bridge went out and was never fixed.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Decomping from the week, meaning nestled on my couch with a
monstrous tub of popcorn (made with oil and butter on the stove,
people, not some cardboard microwave version) and netflix.
Saturday, however, is another story........
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am a huge, monster Vincent Price fan. Love love love him.
As regards photos and the lack thereof, I can empathize with a
reluctance to post photos, but physical chemistry is part of the
equation and difficult to assess from words alone. Since I have
been brave enough to post photos, I expect others who might be
interested to do the same. Otherwise, we aren't operating from an
