My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Factually, I am a geotechnical earthquake engineer living close to the city in an old ship building once upon a time maritime town. I grew up in Queens, went to City College, participated in concrete canoe races and comedy roasts, left for the midwest to graduate school, and went to teach and research engineering in Boston. II have a good sense of humor, an active curious mind, and an interest in new things. I like hiking, walking, sitting outside when it's nice weather cool and dry.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Finding myself, reinventing, always. My current job has been offering challenges through running a group of engineers and technicians in an environment with in essence multiple clients with differing views; the understanding of individual's strengths and weaknesses, a bit of politics, and myself comes to the forefront of the work challenges. I'm enjoying music, art, and the occasional film, and the outdoors near home for the moment. I like to learn, among other things, about engineering, about its technical, legal aspects of unfortunate failures, managing, working with people...

It's important to relax but not so much important that it get in the way of relaxing.
It's useful to be a bit introspective from time to time, just not all the time though maybe just a little bit most of the time.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Thinking on my feet, and in a chair as well. I have a talent, a skill, at things technical, having been interested in such things innately, independently from childhood, and having pursued an education and for some years a teaching career in engineering. I like to read about science online, in the Science Times, and via Corrierre Della Sera. The third allows me the pleasure of my oft time too neglected interest and hobby of dabbling in learning more Italian.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I like The Long Hot Summer and Welles', Woodward's, and Newman's performances.

I was enthralled with the cinematography of Cinema Paradiso, and intrigued with hearing my grandparents language throughout.

I enjoyed the dialog in Whale Rider, it being realistic to family and intergeneration relations.

I devoured Long Walk to Freedom (Nelson Mandels's original autobiography), which covered much of the politics of the players involved and more impressive was the attitudes he held toward building sound, practical bridges. *****

A few favorites have been Long Walk to Freedom, a fascinating recounting of Nelson Mandela's life and colleagues and acquaintances and his impressive attitudes in his part in the struggle against Apartheid; roughly the first half of Waiting for Snow in Havana, the childhood years of Clinton's autobiography, The Power Broker, my favorite chapters being with Fiorello LaGuardia the mayor at times at emotional loggerheads with the book's real life main protagonist, Robert Moses. Also East of Eden, Cannery Row, A Moon for the Misbegotten, The Iceman Cometh, and Macbeth. In "fiction," I enjoy plays especially, I think because they get at the core of what the story is about: the people, the dialogue, the conflicts and emotions and even agreements and passion with the scenery and staging in place of what would be so much descriptive passages in for example, A Tale of Two Cities or much of Dickins works.

Some favorite movies have been Cinema Paradiso, a sleeper called Dark Star that could have become a cult classic if it had been marketed at all, The Last Wave where modern culture meets Aborigine climaxing in a climatic ending of the world wave, Whale Rider which I enjoyed the well written dialogue, and a few hundred more. My Favorite Year and My Favorite Architect (sometimes called The Architect) are two wonderful films I can watch again and again between some delay. Born Yesterday and some other Billy Holiday performances are priceless entertainment. Many of Billy Wilder's films. Also Marty and some of Frank Capra's films, the Mel Brooke's version of To Be Or Not To Be.
Rainman.
Midnight Cowboy.

I already described some of my music interests in my "self-summary" and add here some artists I appreciate are Marcus Roberts, Chick Corea, Cyrus Chestnut, Oscar Peterson, Ellington, Ella...Thelonious Monk, Herbie Hancock, Ornette Coleman...

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Ah, this seems silly to select things. It's the life, relating to people, through work, family, and recreation, though the challenges my mind engages. Some of these come through a camera, my grand nice and nephews, hiking, toying with Italian news articles in everything and especially science and technology which are easiest for me to decipher what the writer is talking about.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The composition of my OK Cupid profile.
How poorly they ate on the Roseanne show.
Coaco, sex, caffeine, work, Buddhist teachings, in any particular order.
My work.
About bodhichitta. A quote on it says it well: "An analogy for bodhichitta is the rawness of a broken heart. Sometimes this broken heart gives birth to anxiety and panic, sometimes to anger, resentment, and blame. But under the hardness of that armor there is the tenderness of genuine sadness. This is our link with all those who have ever loved. This genuine heart of sadness can teach us great compassion. It can humble us when we're arrogant and soften us when we are unkind. It awakens us when we prefer to sleep and pierces through our indifference. This continual ache of the heart is a blessing that when accepted fully can be shared with all."

The person I'd like to meet is the person who would know my heart, and whose heart I could see, and who would find enough interesting in each other to be willing to take time to see.
