My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
What I love: writing; playing music (free improv, jazz, classical); being with people I care about and talking, eating, watching movies, going places, etc. with them; children; nature; concerts; museums; massage (giving and receiving); conversation; encountering new people; talking to beautiful, smart women; finding a new author or composer or musician or artist or film director whom I've never heard of and who turns me on my head; listening; learning; seeking; wondering; breathing....

I'm looking for a woman who is secure in herself (as much as any of us can be), believes in herself, likes to talk and touch and engage in that wonderful emotional, physical, intellectual, spiritual connection that somehow magically materializes when two people who are attracted to each other get together.....

I was born in NYC, grew up in Jersey, and have lived in the East Bay for a while now. I'm half Sicilian Catholic, half Irish Protestant. I've been divorced for almost three years. I'm fit and trim, do yoga, mediate. I like to go to movies, concerts, museums, as well as go hiking. I'm affectionate, like to laugh and have fun, as well as have discussions about life, the universe, and everything. Indeed, they're interconnected for me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I write for an educational software company as well as write and publish creative work, and also play music, currently in two improv quartets. The quartets have played in a number of venues in the Bay Area, as well as in Santa Cruz, Sacramento, Boulder, Denver, and Portland, and one of the quartets has had two CDs come out from a couple of independent labels. It's been great and very fulfilling.
Last summer, I went to Italy for two weeks: Perugia, Florence, and Rome, and had a wonderful time seeing great art, eating great food, drinking great wine, and brushing up on my ability to speak that great language.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing, music, talking, listening, being affectionate.....

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Music, poetry, love, people, air, food.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Creating things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
