Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love life! I'm described as funny, smart, adventurous, daring
(!), self-effacing and a good true friend. I've been in Oregon
since 2001, moving up from Big Bear Lake in the So. Cal. San
Bernardino mountains, and have never regretted the lifestyle
change. Oregon is simply magnificent and Portland especially, is
exactly what I was looking for in a small, vibrant, artistic,
multi-cultural city. Inside this 68 yr old body is a thriving 40 yr
old spirit longing to soar up into the sky, like a bird on the
wing. I volunteer my time for good causes, make friends easily and
carry no bad baggage to complain about. The present and the future
are what excite me!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Diligent in my work life and finding time to play as much as
possible. I'm always excited to experience new adventures. My own
life has been filled with many amazing events and I hope they will
continue forever. I'm healthy and blessed with an abundance of
energy to devote to everything I enjoy; tennis, racquetball,
dancing, kayaking, sailing, singing, volleyball, plays, movies, HH
gatherings with friends...all of these and more. I went to Burning
Man two years ago, armed with a pup tent and canopy. Met some
amazing people, witnessed beautiful art creations. I want to go
again next year -- with an RV, this next time. Found that I needed
more space and shelter options, to be comfortable.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm a people person and easy to get to know. I don't feel anxious
around strangers and usually always feel comfortable in new
situations. My maternal grandfather who died before I was born used
to be known as a man "who knew no strangers". I think his spirit
must live on in me and that's not a bad legacy to be labeled with,
don't you agree?
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I think my eyes, smile and happy demeanor are attractive to others
upon meeting me for the first time. Then comes laughter and
playfulness if the situation is open and comfortable. I am very
attracted to casually touching and being touched, and love to hug
people when the spirit moves me, especially when I feel that my hug
would be welcomed by the other person, right at that very moment.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

My list would be way-too-long to include in this section. Suffice
to say that I LOVE movies that touch my soul, make me laugh, think,
sing or even shed a tear. The theatrical plays in Portland where I
have the privilege of ushering for, are, for the most part,
outstandingly creative productions and I am in awe of the talent
assembled in this small city. Jazz, blues, rock, folk, gospel,
latin music, classical = I love all types of music with a few
exceptions; rap, heavy metal, etc. Guess I'm too old now to
appreciate these, but that's OK with me! :-)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
spirit/soul ~ friendship ~ love ~ peace ~ bliss ~ empathy
I had the adventure of living on the island of Ibiza in the early
1970's, in a white-washed finca -- no utilities, no bathroom, no
phone, no TV. What did I miss most of all? Good tacos! Call me
crazy, but I'm just sayin' that little things mean a lot when you
can't get them.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The possibility of world peace and my role in making it
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually out, ushering at one of my local performing arts gigs,
having an evening with friends, doing some interviewing for my
survey work, watching TV to catch up with my favorite shows on
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I feel it's time to meet someone special and begin a new life
adventure, with him by my side.
