Intuitive, fun guy somewhat introspective and philosophic, who
likes walks/hikes, appreciates design and arts. Broadly
knowledgeable and very progressive - meaning liberal. I'm
intelligent with witty sense of humor - sardonic at times, always
in good fun. I like people who are engaged in life and maybe even
have a thing they are passionate about (butterflies, world peace,
who knows). I don't have a particular mission and you don't need to
either, but I pay attention to what's going on and try to change
what I can - I guess I'm saying I'm a greenie to some extent.
I realized awhile back that I am much more citified than I ever
thought I would be.
What I’m doing with my life
My career goals are in the bag so I am working on me. Making a more
vibrant me. I'm learning to sail and broadening my social sphere
(sounds like MBA talk). Hanging out with friends more and taking
more time off for vacations and fun. I am new to travel and like
it. I still prefer the three or four day get away to the 'vacation'
but I have some Icelandic plans and maybe New Zealand.
Oh yes, I must go to Bisbee before its gone.
I’m really good at
Form and function. I have a writers mind so I am an interesting mix
of dreamer, practician and observer.
The first things people usually notice about me
That guy seems to know what's going on. Maybe he can fix that
dilithium crystal thing once and for all and get the holodeck
working in time for movie night.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Life of Pi was a great book. Kurt Vonnegut is my all time favorite
I guess. Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance had a profound
influence on me at the time. Now I read fiction, short stories and
environment/health/cooking books. I spend a lot of time on BookTV
listening to podcasts of author interviews on current political
I'm into movies. My pat answer to the favorite movie question is
'Dr Strangelove'. It holds up don't you think? I like foreign
movies. Any movie really, except shoot'em-ups with gratuitous
violence.' There is enough of that in real life who needs it.
Lately I'm getting into sound tracks but I have no classical
background so I don't know what's going on. Netflix is golden.
Movies have had such a large influence on my life its hard to
describe. Fortunately for me, I have good taste in movies.
I'll eat about anything and I like to go out and try new cuisine.
Still learning to cook here at the house. Would like to go local
and have already gone organic (at home anyway). Quality of life
related to food depends on how busy I am at work - I like cooking
but don't like grocery shopping. What a quandary. I'm not very
eclectic musically. I know who Fitz and the Tantrums are, but
mostly I'm stuck in the sixties and eighties. I like some swing and
jazz but no rap/hip hop for me.
The six things I could never do without
lemon fizz water
the idea of inherent grace in humanity
modern utilities - notably plumbing
escaping into nature on occasion to recharge
the circle of people that care about me
unnatural fiber - I'm talking polypropylene (you know what it's
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My experience of being. Mostly how expansive the universe is.
Magical and indifferent. Here we are, experiencing passion, strife,
love, depravity, despair, joy, elation while floating along on a
indifferent cooling cinder called earth. I wonder about that
I never want to lose that curiosity about life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Winding down from the week and getting ready for the weekend. Might
find me at the hardware store, catching up on news with friends/
family, lounging around the house or in the kitchen attempting to
prepare a fabulous meal - why not just go out for a fabulous meal?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
We'll talk .....
You should message me if
Your enjoying life and want a fun stable easy going guy who is
affectionate and intuitive to share some escapades with. Honesty,
trust, spark need to be there. You have either people smarts or
book smarts or both and like sharing ideas and needs. You like to
be engaged in personal growth but also like to relax and savor the
moment as well.
