Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My best decision has been to put the happiness, welfare and growth
of my children and family front, center, foremost. Everything else
got in line and has come along nicely. I live looking at what's
before me and just a little bit ahead while my thoughts of the past
are briefer than this sentence.
My early years were spent in two middle eastern countries where we
lived in the local economy and where I was clearly a noticeable and
largely unwelcomed outsider. "Yankee Go Home" was one of the first
sentences I learned to read in English. Fortunately I spoke a few
Those years guided me to pay attention to surroundings, people,
nuances, preferences and differences. So, I'm as American as one
can get while still not being the average guy.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Giving myself permission to be who I am.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Word puzzles and making outrageous, but not malicious,
I'm also good at cooking, from short order to fancy.
Oh, travel...I'm good at travel
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am not so sure since they may "notice" but they normally don't
"say." Although I will admit that a lot of people ask me "So,
what's your heritage?" To which I normally reply "American"

I read at least one book a week, almost always non-fiction. My
favorite book is the one I'm reading right at this moment.
As for food, movies and music I am strictly ravenous and
If you have a favorite movie you want to see, I will go with you.
If you've got a cuisine you want to try, I'm your man. If there is
a dive bar you must frequent, pour me a shot.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My lifelong quest is to hold dearly the six things I can never do
without, second of which is not limiting myself.
I'm not sure why the list goes to six. Does anyone? Why not seven?
Or five? Heck, three will make this question even more compelling.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I try not to overthink but sometimes I wonder if the answers I'm
giving here are attracting or repelling that partner I seek. And
then I stop with a "Well, if she is perfect for me she will be cool
with the answers I've written...so long as I'm being truthful." So
I spend a lot of time thinking about if I'm being truthful or
wishful or embellishful.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I have no aspiration to the typical and I wouldn't want to put so
