My interests are varied and I am quite curious. I'm social and
nonjudgmental. Gentle and contemplative. Fun-loving; silly to
serious. Respectful. Warm and unpretentious. Intelligent. The glass
is half-full in my eyes. Nature is a source of wonder and renewal
for me. After soul renewal, I go for the cultural stimulation of
the city, including great food. I have great friends; close family.
Originality and quirkiness attract me.
What I’m doing with my life
I truly enjoy my work. And my play!
I’m really good at
Listening to others, supporting others, enjoying people, baking
desserts, hearing musical subtleties, dancing (pretty good), fixing
things, solving problems, being disciplined (more or less), being
responsible, telling time without a watch, taking care of myself
and taking care of others. More? Petting cats, playing with
children, calling my mother, finding great restaurants,
appreciating good food and wine, and stopping to smell the lilacs.
Oh and listening to Johnny Hodges (I happen to be doing that now).
The first things people usually notice about me
Not that people often reveal that information, but my warm, sincere
smile gets commented upon.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Whoa: there's not enough room. Ok, just a few through free
association. Austen's Pride and Prejudice, The Wizard of Oz, West
Side Story, M Butterfly, Sidney Bechet, Johnny Hodges, most fresh,
well-prepared food plus all kinds of single origin dark chocolate,
rich, smooth, bold complex coffee, and interesting and varied
complex wines. Can't forget fresh, sweet, juicy fruit (no, not the
The six things I could never do without
The sounds of beautiful jazz as well as those of other music. The
woosh of, the salty, fresh sent of, and the sun sparkling on the
ocean. The varied tastes, textures and scents of good food. Much of
the beauty and wonder of nature. The companionship, support, and
fun of friends and family (including hugs). A good story to get
lost in, touched by, and enlightened by through novels and films.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
people who are important to me.
On a typical Friday night I am
maybe having an interesting, delicious dinner with friends or
family or watching Monk reruns (I love Monk!) or reading or
watching a nabe movie. Mostly relishing the relaxing feeling of
having two free days ahead.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My user name just came to me through free-association.
You should message me if
you have sharp intelligence coupled with a kind soul. A positive
attitude, an interest in life, and a direction. Curious,
fun-loving, yet respectfully serious about the deeper things in
life. Warm and down-to-earth. A good listener and a supportive
person. Gentle and sensual. Someone who enjoys sharing and
independence. Someone interested in developing a serious
relationship. Fairly attractive and in decent shape. Too much to
ask for? Probably! But, if a number of those qualities sound like
you, say hi! (Btw, if we know each other professionally, you are
welcome to let me know you saw my profile.)
