My self-summary
While always aware of
Horizon wary alligators
Must stay aware of those
Faithful few.
Staying focused yet aware of
Those kindling spirits near and far

Long story short, I am polyamorous. I've successfully navigated this discovery with my beautiful wife/partner (grownupgina) of 25 years. I am looking for other peeps to share my life with. Life is good!

Chris Ryan's Ted talk as well as his book are something all of us should be paying attention to:

What I’m doing with my life
Have work for the last 15+ years in the field of sexual violence (mostly perpetrators). Have loved the work and my colleagues/teammates who have been just as twisted as I am. Have recently (October 2013) made a shift to higher paying gig. Continuing to work with at risk folks but no longer sexual violence.

Supporting and loving my artist, novel writing, wife. Raising my two awesome teens.

Have built things in past (guitars mostly) and am wanting to expand that experience to furniture, more guitars, and at least a boat or two (a couple dinghy's and eventually a liveaboard). Currently working on building a workbench.
I’m really good at
Listening, observing, questioning, walking, thinking, reflecting.

For nearly 2 years have been rid of the 4 wheeled monster and commute daily to work...so am getting better at riding bike and making personal choices to lower my carbon footprint.
The first things people usually notice about me
My beautiful long black hair...
If I'm wearing my kilt then they notice that first and then my beautiful long black hair...and then how thick the beautiful long black hair is...and if your a woman then how jealous you are of my beautiful long black hair...then, "can I feel your hair..."

The six things I could never do without
Openness
Creativity
Nature
Exploring
...in process
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Boats, buildings, change, math (getting stuck), mystery (WTF moments), my own stupidity (I often default to preoccupied attachment style...I'm always working on it), my internal process (parts shit), that's just in the last minute or so of sitting here...
On a typical Friday night I am
Taking a walk...chilling with the family...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
In answer to the query "what's under the kilt?"
A. A catered invitation only kinkfest.
B. One of those anti-aircraft gatling guns carried on warships
C. An average sized, of alright girth when erect and potentially
teeny tiny when it's cold outside...cock

You see anything interesting...have any questions...feeling anything in particular...
