My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I suppose that we all feel uncomfortable describing ourselves. I come from Argentina (lived for one year in Israel) where praising oneself is frowned upon. I have been in the US for more than 30 years, but my native culture conditions me. I'm a normal guy, no more, no less, with a bit of nuttiness sometimes (Alan Alda, Robin Williams and Michael Moore come to mind). While we obviously feel closer to what we like, we also learn a lot about ourselves from what we don't. Probably quite a bit more from what we don't. In this sense, I'm very respectful of diversity except when driven by lunacy, selfishness, boredom, cynicism, vulgarity, republican or democratic dandruff (you know, every time a politician is ranting, it feels like s/he is generating so much dandruff that a fog is enveloping you no matter how much you wave it away) or sheer evil. Ergo, if you belong in either of these clubs, is available for free.

Good, and sometimes raucous and indecent episodes of laughter are (I confessed that I took this sentence from the late John Galbraith, great economist and humanist) a good companion. Besides fun shared is more fun.
I believe that, despite present political times that may look so gloomy, goodness, sense and common goals among all peoples can flourish. I also admit that I need to remind myself of what I just wrote to keep on going and smiling. Whatever you may think of these words, and despite the seeming gloominess of these times, I still am certain that dire times will just be transitory if and when we make them so.

Likes and dislikes, etc: I don't drink alcohol or coffee and I don't mind others doing so within public norms. De Gustibus non disputandum est, but smokers or druggies need not apply. Of course I like good movies, dancing, walking, biking and I am sure that there are tons of surprises to find and enjoy of which I know naught. Surprise and learning are a great part of the thrill of life, and the path of life becomes one when you walk on it (Machado), since the joy of the way is the journey. And life has a great way to bring up new adventures that once we get used to them, feel natural, necessary and impossible to leave behind.

There's the quick and unforgettable moment. I search for a person with whom to cherish those little moments that in olden days seem to come out of sepia colored photos. But also let us all cherish for future and better ones, for us and for all good people around. After all, we all feel good when people around you smile for no specific reason.

Likes/Dislikes: I like NPR, WBAI (except when they become whining morons, sometimes too often), The Nation, the Atlantic monthly, classical music, "classical rock", not much jazz -sorry-, tango (Gardel sings better every time), movies, books, some TV, backpacking, theater, etc. Kayaking and canoeing are also fun but haven't done much in those areas, nor spelunking or levitation for that matter, but I'm open to all these adventures, except for bunjee-jumping and discussions on the immortality of the ants. I did go fossil hunting a few times as well and I actually like it.

Being a soccer-loving Argentine, I was a soccer coach for kids for 5 years. I have a 22 year old son whom I adore and is away in college. I also care for my rock garden that contain some fossils, and I tend for my roses and other flowers. Alas, I also have to cook.

Still, all this ranting doesn't tell much of what I want. I don't know what my ideal partner would be. I believe that the partnership is made by being there and sharing moments and interests that eventually form a bond. That is, a relationship grows and changes, it is not a given. It's not a partnership, but companionship, the feeling of belonging, and of sharing a present and a promising future.

In a deeper way, I want romance both as a feeling and as an energy, with affection at its core. I believe in being swept off my feet and in the exhilaration of being with somebody expecting the unexpected, feeling tingles and electricity in small details of daily life. A relationship is far more than going out, beach, concerts, and the usuals; if the necessary energy is not there, they are mere outings. If the energy exists, it doesn't matter so much where you go and are with your companion and lover.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I keep on living, better than the alternative, at least until somebody proves otherwise.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Spelunking and levitation, plus Klingon opera oratorios in stacatto mode sometimes in a karaoke environment on Tuesday evenings. Renowned for giving haircuts while singing Figaro's aria and for cooking whole wheat with quinoa pizza from scratch. I love crossword puzzles.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't know, it depends on whom you ask.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
books: Cervantes, some Shakespeare (especially Hamlet), Boorstin's trilogy, Lucretius, Poe, Doyle, Melville, Borges, and many others, recently Kahneman. Movies: too many to record. Food, is food, tending towards healthy.
Shows: The big Bang, House MD.
Music: classical a lot (Beethoven, Mahler, Schubert, Dvorak, Schuman....), Arvo Part, Loreena Mckennitt, Gardel (the mute, he sings better each time), Beatles. Pretty clueless of present pop culture however.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My glasses and contact lenses, my mate (south american tea) in the morning and herbal tea throughout the day, the gym, raucous and indecent laughter, a sense of non-insulting sarcasm and the inability to count to six, imagination, a sense of the ridiculous, Bronx cheers and the special wonder that things can always get better.
Klingon opera and the relevance of the immortality of the ant.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
a ton of things. Does anybody stop thinking when he/she is conscious?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
lazying around, cleaning and removing clutter, making plans, sometimes going out, etc, etc.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
