DISCLOSURE

I am in the process of moving to Philadelphia, I hope to be settled there in May, until then I am in Philadelphia twice a month.

Thanks

I can be best defined by the choices I made. Moving to NYC - from SF - 30 years ago, leaving NYC 10 years ago, living on Shelter Island next to the sea the whole time. Committing myself to creativity, design, answering my calling and not hewing to convention.

I love creating - professionally (print, motion, interactive, live action), in the kitchen, on a walk and interpersonally and I love indulging my curiosity in things trivial and profound.

It has been a life of amazing adventures.

I appreciate each one and look forward to more. My life is informed by these experiences and while most have been good, some have not, yet they have created a beautiful tapestry, provided great lessons and I would not trade a single one of them.
What I’m doing with my life
Still learning. Really! Expansive, inquisitive. I work in design with success, I practice ashtanga daily. I play samba, sail, kayak, cycle, cook (well). I regularly question my status quo which keeps me on an ever evolving path.

Nothing is static. Metaphysically agile.
I’m really good at
Design, music, art, social interaction, learning, playing, trying, succeeding, failing. I am empathetic. My aim is true. I love chance and spontaneity. I engage life with enthusiasm and I love expanding my spirit, my skills and my aesthetic. I am good at living and loving life.
The first things people usually notice about me
is that I neither act nor look my age. It doesn't mean that I am "young" for my age. It simply means that the path I travelled has yielded an individual who doesn't conform to archetypes. I have friends who are 75 and friends who are 21. And they both sit at my table for dinner. Together. It wasn't really planned or pursued, but the combination of circumstance, disposition and dosha has provided a resilient vessel and an insatiable curiosity which return a irrepressible and dynamic engagement with life. It is noted that I am smart, engaged, happy, well spoken. Maybe a tad loquacious. Oh well. And that I am a good listener.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Mainstream media - movies, TV, books or music - doesn't speak my language. I don't engage the news machine anymore because its the same story different year.

I love to entertain, cook (mostly Mediterranean - both sides) and pair wine (Rhone and Loire Valley varietals are my favs. But I love Spanish and Italian reds too).

I listen to KCRW, KEXP, WPKN streaming because they play, at best, really good mostly unknown music, at worst esoteric familiar stuff. I listen to an eclectic selection gathered over the years. I am currently listening to Polica, Alice Russel, Juana Molina, Radiohead, Zoe Keating, Richard Thompson, James Hunter, Nick Drake, Arvo Part, Lou Doillon, Bon Iver, Gary Clarke Jr., Meshell Ndgeocello, Mina Tindle, Silversun Pickups, Jim James, Alt J, Anouar Brahem, The Decoders among many others.

I fish around Netflix or iTunes for streaming movies, music or documentaries. TED can be interesting.

I am well spoken but am much more visually oriented. I collect art and love playing music live and experiencing artists and their art and creating with others. There is vibrancy in unknown artists and their spontaneous creativity .

Social interaction is a favorite of mine. Probably the favorite.
The six things I could never do without
living in possibility
options
curiosity
asanas
MUSIC
expression

I know none of the above are "things" but I can't really think of indespensible "things". I like this modern way we live, but if it were all to vanish, and it won't, I think life, living, might actually be better. And none of the above would go away if we were to lose iPhones/iPads/iCrap.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
being and experiencing now.

I think a lot about moving to Philadelphia. On a metaphysical plane, I think of the value of chance and change. What the universe will present. Is joy portable? Nature v. Nurture stuff. Am I happy/healthy due to where I live or do I live where I do because I am happy and healthy? I lean to the latter. See, things trivial and profound.

Community, discovery, travel. I think of food, music, friends and putting all three together in one place.

I am also currently fascinated by joy and if there are any limits to joy. Is joy like light? Seemingly Infinite?

How Ashtanga changed the course of my spirit/being. How something that is so quiet and personal can be so profound.
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday can be Monday and Monday can be Saturday. There is no chronology in my life. So I might be against a work deadline or at the farmer's market. There maybe a sail or several friends over for dinner, I might be kayaking or playing music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've kind of shared it all here.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 36–57
  • Located anywhere
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
if you are looking for an engaging, honest, expansive relationship. I am interesting, fun and enlightened.

If I have emailed you and you have good manners, you'll respond in kind. Just sayin...
