My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a deep, intelligent, loyal, affectionate, tough (and tender) guy--earthy but sophisticated--whose passions are editing quality motion pictures and being an active dad to my 8 yr old son. I am fit and sensual and have a healthy attitude with regards to my sexuality. This doesn't, however make me a player (I'm monogamous not poly.)

LIKES:
Children, quality movies/tv, kissing, whole organic food, baseball, underdogs, Charlie Hebdo, water, directness, wit, joy, tomboys, curly hair, deep divers, trampoline-ing, iconoclastic thinkers, affection, those who have one's back, clay-mation (vs. computer animation), mavericks, fine craftsmanship, great books, order, bucking at propriety, high culture, routine, plays, big hearts, making love, scatological humor, minimalism, random kindness, women with strong male energy, egalitarian relationships, good Samaritans, women with husky voices, self-reliance, old folks who've lived, unique voices/accents, and MORE!

DISLIKES:
Political Correctness, harming the young, pretension, cravenly commercial films, marketing (except with a basket), religion, consumption that harms the planet, greed, phonies, poor quality goods, rackets (legal and illegal), plastic bags, travel junkies, food with a million ingredients, comic book movies, the notion of fashion, identity politics, party thinking, propriety, green-washing marketing, the increasing leverage of the 1%, encouraging panhandling by giving change, knives in the back, pretension, video games, skin color bias, indirectness, urban folks with big dogs, PC "thinkers", the term "people of color" and--I promise, not too many--MORE!

THOSE WHO SHOULD SKIP ME:
The religious, conformists and the mainstream-conventional. Those who live > 10 miles from Lake Merritt (I'm a bike traveler.) Those who would minimize a father's role in a child's life. PC folks.

GOOD ASTROLOGY MATCHES FOR ME:
(Yes, I'm proud to use this ancient tool of natural science.)
In--or on the cusp of --or with significant planets in:
Virgo, Pisces, Scorpio, Cancer, Aries, Capricorn

ENNEAGRAM NUMBER:
6 "The Loyalist" with a 5-Wing "The Defender"

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
my son, water, whole food, good shelter, physical play, quality motion pictures
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
A multitude of things philosophical, spiritual but, most of all, practical. Motion pictures I'm working on or viewing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sometimes I have my son and sometimes I am free for grownup activities.
