My self-summary
Maps are for the lost.

I try to keep my life grounded. I remain casual to a fault. I've worked in education for twenty-years. I possess a soft-spoken and kind of Zen qualities (I am not a Buddhist). In a past life I sold my paintings in a few mid-range galleries.

Sincere compliments and laughing at my jokes and smiles are the gifts I value most in others. I enjoy serendipitous journeys through thoughtful conversations or curious locations. Though I often exploit opportunities to provoke a laugh or take a bunny-trail during conversations. I like things simple, I keep a few clothes and don’t own anything that might be called a “man toy,” especially, if it’s loud, on wheels, or has the word “jet” in its description. However, I keep camping gear in or near my midsize SUV for spontaneous getaways. I am hoping to attend the Jackson Browne concert this Fall and travel to LA in the Spring to see Daivd Giolmour.

I do have an eye toward a long-term relationship, but for now, conversing with new people and exploring their world is my main interest.

Rethinking what life ought to be about.

You will have to discover that for yourself.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am looking forward to you telling me what you notice.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Since the hamster died from my leftovers, cooking by myself offers diminishing returns. However, I will slice, wash, peal, and mix anything, I will get the beer, tell dirty jokes, and clean the pans -- but I probably should not be left unattended when the burner is on - just kidding about the hamster.

I read non-fiction. Live music is best. I have a diverse taste in music. In general I don't care for most of popular music today that lacks that "hand-made" and genuine quality. I can do adventure movies, but like documentaries and usually anything that rates high among critics has something for me. I do like discovering hidden gems.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Anything that attracts my curiosity.
On a typical Friday night I am
Happy Hour, hanging with a dear friends, or the labradorable four-year-old puppy.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am not telling.
You should message me if
If anything you just read or saw sparks your curiosity.
