Q: How many surrealists does it take to change a light bulb?
A: A fish.
My second favorite joke is this, taught to me by my daughters:
Yes, I love to laugh and be silly. I think we humans are goofy. I've done stand-up comedy and I teach improv comedy to adults to help them reclaim their sense of fun.
My partner and I are non-monogamous and she is happy to talk to any prospective lovers about her support. We don't live together. I am looking for adventurous, open, and sensual women who are okay with non-monogamy. Extra points if you're bisexual or bicurious. I love the complexity and possibility. It's okay with me if you have another primary relationship or other relationships, as long as we are safe, kind, and responsible, and respect agreements and boundaries. I bring my my whole self to the party (body, mind, spirit, heart) and I hope you do too, but that doesn't mean we have to be heavy and serious. I am also looking for people to play and sing with for grins, and to start a band with.
I am not your standard number ten envelope.
I've been struck by lightning. I've hitchhiked across the U.S. I write and sing songs in the tradition of John Prine. I love being a DODO (Dad Of Daughters Only) to two teenagers. I love people who are different and exceptional, especially creative people. I do contact improv dance weekly and it changed my life and got me in my body. I spent 20 years writing advertising. My life has been a cross between my two favorite movies: Aliens II and Raising Arizona. I usually read about 10 books at a time. I've written a book or two myself, called "Perfect Phrases for Sales and Marketing" and "Marketing, Advertising, and P.R., both published by McGraw-Hill. I have made many mistakes, most of which I have learned from. I can't bear meaningless suffering. I'm the person strangers walk up to ask for money or directions. I had a stroke at age 49 and I started waking up with entire songs in my head, which had never happened before. In the E.R. as I lay dying, I vowed I'd leave something beautiful behind if I lived. I just put out my first album of songs, recorded with some amazing musicians in Nashville, and my health is good. You can check them out on itunes. I'm living proof it's never too late to start over again!
So many of my women friends have commented on this that I feel I should mention it. I have a strong masculine side and I love women, but I also have a strong "feminine" side that is emotionally sensitive and articulate and compassionate, and I love beauty and and conversation and feel deeply to a degree that is apparently unusual for dudes. I am not a wuss, but I do have a pretty high Emotional Intelligence. If you don't like this, you should avoid me.
I am Open, Soulful, Sensual, Courageous, and Improvisational
