First of all, I'm not into all these "I's", but "I" guess it's a
necessary evil, huh. Okay, as an initial spur of the moment
description, I'm an avid recycler and care deeply about all things
environmental and sustainable, and try to live as 'lightly' as
possible. This includes not being into consumerism - but not to the
point of wanting to live in a cabin :-) . I'm very liberal in my
politics, and am spiritual but clearly not religious. Thought I'd
get the major 'strikes' out there right up front! I am, in my
humble opinion, an interesting combination of sophistication and
base-ness and, accordingly have a life-long strain of
non-conformist in me. I love intellectual stimulation, I love
affection and intimacy, and humor of all sorts at all possible
times. I'm not into 'face' time, per se, but can socialize quite
well when needed. I love to putz on my property. I'm also not an
urban-oriented guy, but can certainly enjoy the sights and sensory
offerings of cities in a touristy kind of way. I'm ultimately
looking for casually floating on a river of passion with someone
who also loves being 'one' with her partner, while also not
threatening our individuality. An old hippie might work, as well as
a skeptical optimist, who wakes up each morning (not a night owl)
with inherently renewed affection and optimism. Would love to meet
someone who likes being irreverent, spontaneous and uninhibited.
Just for starters :-) !
What I’m doing with my life
I'm officially retired (again), but until Xmas '12 worked part-time
at a new local organic/local foods store purely out of a love for
its mission and its potential contribution to our health and our
global ecology. As well as volunteering with several environmental
and social justice efforts, and working (slowly but doggedly) on
creative projects, such as sculpturing found wood.
I’m really good at
Hmm. I think I'm pretty good at thinking, loving and observing. And
trying to be a positive experience for those with whom I interact.
Hopefully, also listening and trying to find the silver lining in
life's aggravations. I'm sure there's more here, but I may have to
add them later!
The first things people usually notice about me
I have absolutely no clue.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm all over the place here. I'd been reading adult mystery/action
books/novels recently, but have recently been devoting time to a
large backlog of magazines piling up, of all sorts. Movie-wise, I
(as a guy) like quality action films, but also indie films, and
even romantic films... As for food, I unfortunately can't eat hot
stuff, but love all sorts of cuisines. Musically, I have a
fantastic assortment of CD's, albums, etc. from all genres that
stop abruptly around the mid-eighties.
The six things I could never do without
1. Affection - in all its realms
3. Humor - in all its realms
5. My kids
6. Positive options for tomorrow
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My, and everyone's, qualities and frailties, my final partner, our
political and environmental futures, the next football season,
what's happening outside, introspection, and a bunch of stuff I
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
C'mon, this is just TOO loaded!
You should message me if
You're interested in knowing more (duuh) !!
