My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Nature loving guy seeking similar in a partner for this adventurous journey through life.

My son, whom I adore, is now beginning his second year of college, and while I miss him terribly sometimes, I'm suddenly free all the time.

I love the Northwest. I have been playing outside all summer, heading to the lake with my kayak(I do have an extra!), swimming and paddling, and taking an occasional hike. Hoping to do more hiking as summer transitions into fall.

I have a true passion for the outdoors, for nature, both recreationally and in a pantheistic sense. I am always up for an adventure, whether that be a trail run/hike in the gorge, backpacking and sleeping against the belly of the earth, climbing a mountain, swimming in a river, kayaking, skiing in the winter, or simply throwing the Frisbee in the park.

When in this great city I call home, I can be found hanging with friends, seeing a movie, sometimes catching some music,
or simply staying home and watching a movie or reading.

I'm full of kinetic energy. I'm a down-to-earth romantic,
who is sensitive, perceptive, and passionate about life.
I have a great sense of humor,(sometimes sarcastic),
and am young at heart.

At 52, I don't pretend to have it all figured out, but rather, am enjoying the ride whilst still growing.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Enjoying summer! Swimming every weekend in lakes and rivers. Figuring out this empty nesting. . . Trying to cleanse stuff, both physically and mentally. Looking to grow, to expand my horizons, meet new people, do new things.
Still want to take dance lessons.
Attempting to be more mindful.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Friendliness, making people laugh, being curious and playful, listening, being a friend, perceiving, and appreciating the simple things in life. Making oatmeal. Massage. Being outdoors. Camping. Planning adventures.
Being physically active. Overanalyzing. Procrastinating!
The first things people usually notice about me

Recently read Wild and thought it very good.

Movies: I Love movies, even romantic comedies(if they're good!). Faves include Love Actually(I watch it every Christmas). Recently viewed Enough Said. Blue Jasmine. The Book Thief. Babel. The Motorcycle Diaries, Foreign flicks.

Music: All sorts. Dylan, Natalie Merchant, The Band, Dido,
Greg Brown, Lucinda Williams, Neil Young, Ryan Adams,
Ray LaMontagne, etc. Along with Classical, Jazz, and Folk. I often keep Pandora streaming cause it's easy. .

Food: I eat pretty healthy most of the time, a little meat, a lot of veggies. My son and I always ate a salad after the main course. Good beer, and maybe a burger, after a hike in the gorge. Pasta.
I love making a crisp with fresh fruit picked out at Sauvie's Island.
The six things I could never do without

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to better myself. My next adventure. And when
I'm going to meet you.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Going out for a movie, music, catching a beer,
or simply staying in. Love cooking and sharing a meal.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I own a lot of shoes?
