From time to time I engage in some radical experiment designed to provoke people to think and act for themselves. Most of the time, however, I focus on more immediate positive possibilities -- fun things I can do and share with the people around me.
I'm curious and considerate, playful and analytical. Usually very grounded -- except sometimes when a woman knocks me off my feet! The thing I love most in life is the spark of encounter and the joy of sharing experiences.
My ideal match would have enough lucidity to be aware of the problems in the world and enough compassion to try to do something about them when feasible, but also enough innocence and wonder to focus mostly on the beauties of life. She would have radical sympathies, practice some form of meditation, and be at least moderately well-read. That's an ideal, not a requirement -- but if you are not into any of those things, we might not have much to talk about!
I rarely watch modern films, but enjoy reseeing certain classics: German and Russian silents, French films of the thirties (Pagnol, Vigo, Renoir, Carné, Clair), Japanese (Mizoguchi, Kurosawa, Ozu), early American comics (Chaplin, Keaton, W.C. Fields, Marx Brothers), Carl Dreyer, Stan Brakhage, Alain Tanner.
I don't have a television and don't miss it. When visiting relatives I occasionally watch tennis or basketball or a few PBS programs.
I like classical music, jazz, classic rock, American folk music, Celtic tunes, Greek rebetika, Japanese taiko, and French café songs. I love to play folk music (guitar and fiddle) with friends, know hundreds of good old-time songs, and even sing a few French songs -- with an American accent that probably makes my French friends chuckle inside, though they are polite enough to show appreciation for my effort!
I'm omnivorous, but usually choose East Asian when eating out.
. . . and a little Zaniness for good measure!
