My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Me as of Autumn 2014

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 and now relocating to center city Philadelphia. 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.

Addendum/Oct 14
The move to Philadelphia is just exactly the right thing. No question. I could not, in planning this transplant, envision how radical it would be. There is a slow integration into my new (old) environment and while I do not long for my (former) island life, the challenges inherent in this move are such a privilege to have/experience. While many are winding down, I am winding up and I am honored/fortunate to be of the spirit (see below) to initiate and more importantly, embrace this change.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Still learning. Really! Expansive, inquisitive. I work in design with success, I'm a musician, sail, kayak, cycle, cook (well). I regularly question my status quo which keeps me on an ever evolving path.

Nothing is static. I am Metaphysically agile.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
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 honing my aesthetic. I am good at living and loving life.
The first things people usually notice about me

is my smile, and upbeat attitude. People note that my demeanor belies 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
Help your potential matches find common interests.
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 and pair wine with what I prepare.

I listen to KCRW, KEXP, WPKN, WXPN - to name a few - 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 Wolf-Alice. Polica, Future Islands, Alice Russel, Radiohead, Zoe Keating, Richard Thompson, James Hunter, Nick Drake, Arvo Part, Lou Doillon, Bon Iver, Bill Henry, King Sunny Ade, Meshell Ndgeocello, Silversun Pickups, Jim James, Alt J, Anouar Brahem, Fela Kuti among many 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 collaboration and obscure artists .

Social interaction is a favorite of mine. Probably the favorite.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
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
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
being and experiencing now.

I think a lot about this new chapter in 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 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
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
My life is changing radically due to my move to Philadelphia but 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. I maybe away for a sail or having friends for dinner, I might be listening to or playing music.
