My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm kind, very intelligent, well educated, reasonably well traveled, born & raised in NYC, curious, psychologically minded (like to know what makes people tick), intuitive, philosophically & spiritually inclined (raised Catholic, now with Buddhist tendencies), honest, communicative, straightforward, and a good listener. I'm in excellent physical shape, very active, like to get things done, learn new things, experience new adventures; love to be in nature, swim the waters, breathe the air, walk the terrain and do it often. That goes for art museums and galleries too (many friends who are artists). I also like to laugh and make others laugh. Politically I'm very left, not afraid of the concept of social democracy, with liberty and justice for all, though I'm not a dogmatist and know how to respect other perspectives. The arts are very important to me (literature, painting, film, music, architecture) and I'm drawn to people who share that predilection. I'm looking for a good, soulful connection with a curious, attractive, intelligent woman, ideally for the long term.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've been self employed since birth, work as a General Contractor, a builder & maker of things and transformer of living spaces, currently finishing up a 5 yr. long rehab of my own place in the Berkley Hills: structural changes, interior design, landscaping: big fun but way too many decisions.... I'm also a writer, a parent, friend, and fellow wanderer of the pathless path. In my off time I love to go for road trips, Napa/Sonoma, Carmel/Big Sur, or locally, Mt. Tam/Bolinas/Tomales, etc. Good food & wine along the way, sun blazing on the ocean, what more can you ask? Further afield favorites include NYC, New England, the Southwest, Paris, Italy, anywhere Europe. Like to be present in the moment, live & enjoy the simple pleasures, fleeting bright moments, each (intimate) other.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing, listening, building, joking, doing nothing alone or in tandem, walking & talking, wise cracking, complaining, cat napping.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My height, I guess, but come to think of it, I've never really thought to ask.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I've had a lifelong love of books, so I wouldn't even know where to begin with that, but if you have a writer you really like I've probably read, or at least know something about, her or him (if not, I can fake it). Love film, especially foreign/indie, especially French & Italian. I like rock, jazz, classical, world music. Pretty eclectic in my tastes with food, but Italian always does the trick. And paella. And needless to say, great wine.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friendship, love, good conversation, the arts, the fireplace, children, any kind of water, clouds in the sky.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I'm gonna retire in this broke down American casino, just like everybody else.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Reeling with joy at the promise of the weekend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Will be revealed to the right person at the appropriate time, given the proper stimulants.
