Grew up on City Island in the Bronx , never got an accent though .
Lived in Washington Square Park and various punk Squats on the Lower East Side... I miss the old NYC.
Boarding school in Vershire VT , following the Dead , college in western NC , all lower 48 traveled through.
MN the land of 10,000 treatment centers.
Back to NY, working in a local hospital, living in the burbs, and wondering how /why I managed to make it to 4x.
That's the abbreviated time line. In amongst that time I : Played Banjo professionally, learned how to build/wire/plumb a house, owned and lost 2 businesses, took care of horses, traveled in Sri Lanka/India/Nepal,fell in love, fell out of love, outlived all my childhood friends, guided fly fishing trips, worked on an organic farm, cast bronze bells, climbed trees , cut trees down, managed a forest, taught myself how to build computers, and got clean.
I'd probably make a good muse. I have a sprawling family/extended family that I adore, lots of nieces and nephews that I get to play favorite uncle to. I've been in some very healthy long term relationships , just none recently .
I managed to come through all my excesses with at least my health intact. I currently work the 7pm to 7am overnight at a local hospital , on my days off I am usually out paddling/peddling my kayak on western LI sound or Jamaica Bay . Most days that's 6-10 hours on the water with 5-10 miles covered ...keeps me pretty fit and moderately sane.
I am honest and above all forthright with my partners , I am also deeply skeptical of this online dating thing.
If you managed to read all this and it sounds at all interesting or familiar drop me a line, at least we can have a laugh about the 80's in the city or maybe meet to kayak somewhere .
