In my spare time, I like to hike, listen to and play music, learn foreign languages, study history, science, philosophy, etc. I enjoy video games (good ol' SNES is still probably my favorite system, I still have the one I got for my birthday in 1992). I play golf, build model ships, read and write poetry, work on cars, go swimming, sit by the river and watch the tide roll in and out, enjoy the change of the seasons, and I love to laugh and make others laugh. Right now, I'm working on learning to speak Telugu, the language of the Andhra Pradesh state of India. Just because I think it's a beautiful language.
I love the way the sky glows white at night when it snows, I'm surprisingly good at baking. I like working in gardens and sitting and relaxing in cool hemlock groves. I love swimming holes, cruising down the highway on a spring day with classic rock blaring on the radio, holding hands and snuggling, playing word games, amusement parks, plum brandy, barbecues, and women who have an excess of personality. I think the human imaginations is one of the more powerful forces in the planet.
As far as romance goes, I've very affectionate, and I love giving kindness and attention to a special lady. I'm very loyal and caring towards my friends and girlfriends.
A warning: I'm prone to burst our singing at any time, particularly when listening to an oldies station on the radio. Other times, it might be in a foreign language, just because I love the sound of the words. It's not a pretentious thing, I just love language and the beauty of words.
My dream is to eventually retire on a large parcel of the land up in the Adirondacks and keep a few acres out of the developers hands, and just spend time enjoying the land.
Just one warning: I do not, under any circumstances, want to have children. Don't expect me to change my mind on this.
