My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
What can anyone say that hasn’t been said? That answer’s easy: not a whole lot. But with the right person, it all sounds new. That’s where you come in.

I’m a fit and young-at-heart six zero with an interesting and fulfilling profession who is looking to share all those moments when you’re not in New Zealand or on Santorini. Not that those moments don’t count, but it’s usually the little things that matter more. That’s where chemistry comes in – there’s no way around it. If I tell you that I’m a mild introvert who’s highly intuitive and likes the color green, is that going to matter? I hope not. But a phone call or coffee or a quick bite might.

Also, for perspective, have a look at this:

As for me, I’m curious, interested in many things, and see the world with occasional irony (you kind of need it these days). Some things I’d like to do with you, not in order:

* Travel to Bora Bora.
* Visit the deCordova.
* Walk along Crane Beach in the winter.
* Watch a new and interesting film and talk about it.
* Finish the Times Sunday crossword while making pancakes from scratch.
* Eat sushi and drink Saki - multiple courses, deep into the night.
* Take the train to New York and stroll down the High Line.
* Cycle around Block Island.
* Embark on a photography expedition.
* Attend a new, small theater that we've just discovered.
* Construct an elaborate Indian meal – then serve it to friends at a long languid party.
* Hang out with interesting people who are full of life, and fun, and ideas.
* Host an intimate get-together to try a few new wines and several unusual cheeses.
* Take in some creative new music at a small club well off the beaten path.
* Devise something clever -- and patent it.
* Explore the Mount Auburn Cemetery.
* Review a poem that one of us has written, and criticize it -- diplomatically.
* Dine at a dive that offers some amazingly good food.
* Stay overnight at a B+B in beautiful VT.
* Return to the Greek Islands, in love, pockets loaded with drachma (or maybe seashells -- they could be worth more).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Planning out the next few years. Enjoying life. Cooking Indian (or at least eating those nice frozen Indian dinners from Trader Joe). Cycling to work. Staying in touch with the world.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Conversation and contemplation.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Novels, thrillers, comedies, operas, and sushi. I'm a great fan of the arts, and try to appreciate everything I have the good luck to see or read. Here are some favorites...

Writers: I favor fiction and have been a member of a book group for more than 25 years. Alice Munro, Faulkner, Cormac McCarthy, Carver, the Brontes, EM Forster, Virginia Woolf, Tobias Wolff, Shirley Jackson, Nabokov, Flannery O'Connor, Ishiguro, Dostoyevsky. Special books: Runaway, Lolita, As I Lay Dying, To the Lighthouse, Rabbit Redux, The Child in Time, The Human Stain, The Great Gatsby, The Tiger's Wife, A Visit from the Goon Squad, Wuthering Heights. Once I get going, the list is almost endless (and I'm not even including poets).

Movies: Chinatown, Donnie Darko, Roxanne, anything by Eric Rohmer, almost anything by Altman, A Clockwork Orange, vintage Hitchcock, Melancholia, Woody Allen (the great and the not-so), Moonrise Kingdom, Winter's Bone, Blue Velvet, LA Story, Pan's Labyrinth, most of what the Coen Brothers have done (especially Fargo and The Big Lebowski), Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Blade Runner, Syriana, Days of Heaven, The Hours, The Big Sleep, Toy Story 1-3, Three Colors: Red, White and Blue, Something About Mary, Sunday Bloody Sunday, The Last Emperor, The Last Picture Show. (Don't get me started...)

Music: Many people have incredibly eclectic tastes; I envy you. I like a lot of Western classical music, and modern rock and folk (Dylan, Cohen, Mitchell, Simon, Vega, Bjork, Feist). Talking Heads. Nina Nastasia. Kinks. Billy Bragg. Have to check my iPod....

Operas: The Magic Flute, Dido and Aeneas, Peter Grimes, Tristan und Isolde, Nixon in China
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
This tempts the silly, the pretentious and the generic (morning coffee, dark chocolate, hot tubs, warm fires -- yikes!) Plus, I think that most of us, really, could pretty much do without most things. But what the heck -- here are some idiosyncratic faves (not in order of priority):

1. Beethoven: The Late Quartets
2. Vermont
3. My droid (the personal staff robot)
4. Kittie Cassandra
5. A small group of unusual friends
6. The Underground (a poem)

Here are six mystical yet more generic items:

1. November
2. Warm summer nights, insects hissing
3. Cozy winter fires, well watched
4. A remembered perfume
5. Realizing that you already are in love with that someone
6. The double dream of spring
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What's next....
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Too exhausted to think about anything more fun than a great evening of tapas and conversation at a small, artsy, out-of-the-way bistro with a lovely, lively and interesting someone. But, more typically, I like to cocoon after a long week, maybe watch an unusual film, read, relax. (But you don't have to do it alone.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've worn holes in my favorite socks (purple).
