Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Please grant me the right to be artistically free (in this bio),
for what I claim is also what I want to be. Surely the truth always
dances in between where we aim and where we remain. Honesty is just
the willingness to say that this is so, without any fear of what
others will think that they know.
I know well who I am now, and yet living fully allows that there is
always more to know. I am interested in someone who knows that
fully meeting another is not just a matter of mechanically fitting
the puzzle pieces together, but sensing all the subtle and
mysterious currents that each amazingly complex and interesting
human being flows through from moment to moment.
There is an art to living freely and yet with sensitivity, to
engaging another and all their constellations. In this I am an
I am/want to be honest, open, amusing, receptive, sensitive,
loving, insightful, inspired, capable of joy, fearless, willing to
help, willing to listen, creative.
And in any given moment, I am some part of being and striving for
all of that. And if any of that interests you, on to the next
question we roll.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Writing, playing music and listening, dancing, consulting
part-time, enjoying my grown children and one grandchild,
travelling, doing yoga, studying meditation philosophy, language.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Believe it or not, writing, but this is a work in progress and I'll
finish it when I get the time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
All the arts, almost all kinds of food, almost any kind of music.
I'm adaptable. For instance, I've been a skier since I was a
teenager. My son has been a professional skier (ski patrol). That
is to say, I'm a pretty good skier. But there have been times when
I have been with a partner who was not a skier when I have given it
up completely, only to happily return to it later.
My favorite things are those presenting in the moment which bring
the greatest amount of shared satisfaction, contentment,
inspiration, etc. into my life.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In the same vein as above, I'll have to think about this one.
Because if I were to be stuck on one particular thing, that might
obscure the possibility that I could encounter you and all the
wonderful gifts you might bring except that one thing.
Maybe I'm saying I'd rather discover the mystery of who you are as
we go, rather than through a distant comparison of bucket lists.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to make the world a better place for future generations,
including my own kids of course.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
we'll make it up as we go along.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are looking for a partner in fun, discovery, travel, discourse,
