My self-summary
I’m looking for an open-minded, inquisitive, independent companion to share outings, adventures, and growth (personal and together) that enriches both of our lives.

I have a enthusiasm for life, trying to be fully in the present while I can't deny that I'm excited about what's ahead. I've always had a lot of appreciation for how fortunate I've been and continue to be.

I’m comfortable in my body and believe in taking care of it. I enjoy movement in many forms (cardio machines, weights, yoga, bicycling, walking, and this year, maybe, just maybe, I’ll try again to learn to dance – I’m a real piece of work but with patience and persistence…) I also pay attention to what I put into my body, eating healthily (but not being dogmatic about it). I’ve always enjoyed cooking but recently have been getting a little more creative.

I’m a big fan of outdoor music festivals and concerts, and other events that are so plentiful from May – October. I also like to get out of town on day trips to Whidbey, Vashon, etc. and overnighters to places up and down the Sound. Being near water is a high priority. (From early July, I’m always looking for a lake swim on a warm day.) Beyond overnighters, I’m looking to travel a lot more in the years ahead, in the states and abroad. I’m struggling with learning Spanish for trips south soon.

I’m an optimist who ultimately finds humor - or lessons - in most things including the hardships along the way. I recently had one: a severe car crash but it changed my life in positive ways and I am almost fully recovered. It gave me the excuse/reason to move in with my recently divorced brother in a big house in Ballard and be a live-in uncle to my two nephews, and niece (9, 4, and 7) who are here about 50% of the time. It’s a great situation all around as I get along with all four beautifully. I’m currently not working but am quite stable financially.

I've always seen profundity in the mundane and awe in the mystery of life. I like conversation about a variety of topics and I find that my passion for life has not dimmed with the years. I'm happiest with people who are not easily contained by a narrow range of experiences and are both curious and in awe about life. I want to be intrigued emotionally, intellectually, and aesthetically.
What I’m doing with my life
Balancing living in the present, fully enjoying my current life...with planning and having fun anticipation for the years ahead. I can afford to take off some time from a working life. I'm excited about all my future possibilities while staying grounded in the present.
I’m really good at
listening well
thoughtfulness
laughing easily
expressing myself
taking care of myself
enjoying myself in many situations
cooking a delicious and nutritious meal for a friend
The first things people usually notice about me
Tall, lean, bald, easy smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Beck, Black Uhuru, Bob Dylan, Casandra Wilson, Duke Ellington, Gotan Project, Handel, Led Zeppelin, Neil Young (& Crazy Horse), Sarah Vaughan, Satie, Sleater-Kinney, Talking Heads, Telemann, Vivaldi, White Stripes, Brazilian, Blue Note jazz, reggae, plus a whole bunch more.

Passionate about songs in many genres but in movies, my taste isn't as wide (favorites are usually with richly-drawn characters), and I watch no television (not a snob about this though!) Besides listening to much music, I also read a lot, and have a handful of podcasts that I listen to.

At home: Vegetables prepared in a multitude of ways, fish, and, in moderation, modest amounts of well-sourced poultry and meat plus a nice variety of other healthy things. Out: quite flexible but partial to Thai, Tex-Mex, and seafood.
The six things I could never do without
1. Fun deep banter
2. Music
3. Enjoyment of nature
4. Exercise
5. Healthy and tasty food
6. Quiet
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I believe that I've written plenty already :-) Please see the above sections: there is a lot in there that I do spend time thinking about.

But, regularly, I want to spend less time thinking as well (quieting my mind.)
On a typical Friday night I am
Nothing typical. I could be with a friend at home or out, at the gym, out to eat by myself, at the gym, doing a project at home, etc.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 48–65
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You are willing to invest an hour or two walking with me at one of the beautiful parks around here. I find that this is the most comfortable way of meeting (and most agree.) It may be the start of something big or not but at the very least, it will be an interesting connection.

You can stay open to someone who has lots of possibilities ahead, comfortably situated in all ways - and at the same time, open to any number of paths.
