Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I WANT TO APOLOGIZE TO PEOPLE WHO HAVE WRITTEN TO ME AND NOT
I have started to see someone and it seems very promising. It
sneaks up on one.... I should have gotten off OKC several months
ago.... but wasn't sure, and wasn't sure, and then neglected to do
it! I'm sorry! I've received notes from some wonderful-sounding
people! I wish everybody good luck! I will come back here in awhile
and close the profile (assuming all goes well).
I know it takes some time. It takes a lot of effort.
But I've done it before. I can do it again.
I want to become close to a female human being.
I write poetry, fiction, nonfiction (favorite poets: Keats, WS
Merwin). I edit people's novels and non-fiction. I also sometimes
dabble in mixed media conceptual art, using photography and/or
collage. Extreme lover of books. I sell rare books, specializing in
poetry, art, and photography. I like to go to readings, movies,
museums, galleries, antique shops, places of beauty outdoors.
I try hard to practice both honesty and kindness, generally with
success. I believe in a life that is creative, erotic, and humane.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I try to be creative, mostly in poetry lately, and to become
someone who adds a small contribution to our understanding of the
universe and our place in it, of who we are and what we could
become. I'd like to give a small push to the boundaries of our
freedom. which I think can be wider and deeper than we have so far
imagined. And I hope to have a few laughs, some great sex, and many
refreshing naps along the way.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Reading, writing, and arithmetic. Expressing feelings and
listening. Scrabble. Puns. Also, I like to think, the erotic arts.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I think they notice my physical presence, and then probably my
occasionally bizarre sense of humor. Soon they notice my brain,
which I sometimes wear on my sleeve.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Food? I was in the Peace Corps in Korea, and have grown to love
virtually all Asian food. And to be interested in at least trying
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Books, humor, art from Lascaux to ICA, genuine human touch, ice
cream, watching TV naked with a friend (credit to Sarah Silverman
for that one).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Pleasure, outrageous art. Oh yeah, and social justice.

Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, walk in the woods to enjoy the birds,
animals and other natural phenomena, touch another person as deeply
and honestly as possible. Note that I travel to NY fairly often,
for business and friendship, so it's possible we could meet in CT,
