Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This profile is an on-going venture. It will continue to develop
and evolve as I reflect on these essays.
I'm intelligent, curious, and always adventurous. I enjoy traveling
and new experience. New, different and exciting is my pursuit. I
believe in mutual respect, openness and equality in a relationship.
I have did the significant other. It had its moment, now I'm
looking for friends. I'm semi-retired and looking forward to doing
all those things I set aside for family and career.
I am Bright, Fit, and Adventurous
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I do some consultation with a variety of school systems. I taught
emotional disabled children for twentyfive years. Primarily I used
behavior modification to help the children obtain control of their
lives and find educational success. I now consult other states
educational facilities on behavior modification programs.
My real passion was the arts. I went to art school before I join
the Army and served in VietNam. When I came back I couldn't fine
the passion to create art. Since my semi-retirment I have been
trying to regain that passion. I sometimes find writing poetry
spawns thoughts and ideas for creations I can transfer to the
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Many things; Educationally, I received a Graduate Assistantship for
my post undergrad. studies.
Athletically I played multiple high school sports, after Vietnam I
played basketball and baseball for the USArmy in the greater
Washington DC arena.
I was a non-commissioned officer and a member of a Military
Intelligent Special Operation squad in Viet Nam.
I can draw a straight line (try it sometime).
I can draw and paint portraits (but I'm terrible at clothing, so I
don't do clothes) lol .
I can express my thoughts on paper in an interesting matter,
sometimes even grammatically correct.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The way I carry myself, my walk, my poise, how I look and dress.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorite Books: "The little Prince" by Antoine de Saint-Exupery;
"Lord of the Rings" trilogy and "The Hobbit" by JRR Tolkien; "Mere
Christianity" by CS Lewis; "Lord of the Flies" by Wm. Golding; "One
Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" by Ken Kesey; "The Prophet" by Gibran
Khalil; Five People You Meet In Heaven" by Mitch Albom; This list
is very incomplete. These are just a few books that have had a
special place during my life. Some no more than pleasure, use of
imagination, others profound influence on my thoughts and feeling
of that time period, most were both.
Movies: "Nightmare Before Christmas", "The Rocky Horror Show",
"Arsenic and Old Lace", "North By Northwest", "Saving Private
Ryan", "Dirty Dozen", "Glory", "Stagecoach", "Butch Cassidy and the
Sundance Kid", "Magnificent Seven", "Seven Samurai", "Samurai",
"Schindler's List", and "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest". One
"Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" is the only movie and book that I
equally valued. The movies like the books are never ending.
Music is a later task! There is so much.
Foods, spirits and liquid refreshments: There is no food or drink I
will not try. I believe in curiosity and adventure in almost all
things regarding my life, none more so than food and drink. Fish
and Shellfish prepared in a multitude of ways; Most all veggies,
fruit and nuts prepared or raw; Soft cheeses and butters with an
abundant assortments of breads; Then there is a variety of honeys
and jams; On and on I could go,
need it be said, "I appreciate fine foods".
Drinks and spirits must be for another time.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
6.The Senses; seeing, hearing, touching, tasting, smelling.
7.Laughing, crying, living and dying( I kinda like that lyric and
seven is a lucky number, RIGHT?)
Then there are those other things: SEX, BEER, and ROCK N' ROLL.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Dining out at a place of choice rather than convenience. Going to
movie, theater, piano or jazz bar, a occasional sporting event,
something with a theme of entertainment.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I like new experiences. I fine things that are different far more
interesting. I believe adventure helps give purpose to life.
