Well, here it goes-
I have spent the last 30 years working to make a difference and become myself. I have had some success at both. I was lucky to have powerful and transformative help from many people, most of all from lushlifeseattle my vixen/partner for the last 23 years. She is the most amazing artist, mom, teacher, traveler, lover and human being.
I have learned that kindness, authenticity, empathy, patience and integrity are incredibly valuable and central to being a whole person and I work to practice them.
I know that you have to have heart, soul and hope to live a meaningful life.
I have been knocked down more than once, but I get up again- I am persistent and resilient.
At midlife the most important thing I want to know is are you kind?
I am in no particular order a cook, father, organizer, traveler, autodidact, fisherman, a lover of art and music and even more the people who create them.
I have an overwhelming interest in the edges where people, cultures and worlds come together interact and transform- crepuscular moments, cloud lines, tides lines, vernal ponds, city neighborhoods, and new countries.
I am a font of mostly useless knowledge. At the same time I’m a little non-teleological – you have to understand things as they are before you understand their roots.
I ride to the sound of the guns and I am always for the underdog (sometimes even when they are wrong).
I was picked on as a kid and I hate bullies, so I‘ve made helping people fight back my life’s work.
I love my kids and they make me crazy.
I love to derive.
Fishing makes me happy and helps me balance my world.
I’m attached to situationists, primitive Christians, kids,wise old folks, rebels and real human beings.
The nicest things people say about me: you can count on him, good guy to go to dinner with, old school and , the greatest compliment of all, mensch. I try to be worthy.
I’m really happy cooking for people.
I have much of my life crossing lines or class, culture and race. I am most comfortable living on those edges and having my feet in multiple worlds.
I am also quite proud to be both shameless and silly.
So why am I here?
I/we want to make intimate friends who share values and some of our interests ( just some because we like learning about new things). We would like those friendships to include sex when we have that connection. We have been adventurers together for a long time and this has been next step in our story. We mostly want to do this together and even if we relate to you individually, we would want everyone to know each other. We want to meet sex positive, life positive couples and women. We are fun, warm and open.
Talk to me if you like affirming, kind silly and engaging people who are fun even when they sleep.
A last thought- what do I like – well I have a type, (curvy) but I really like souls and energy. I also really appreciate people who fish...
