My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m 66 years old and holding up pretty well. I’ve been married to the same (wonderful) woman for 41 years and we’ve had different views on my sexuality and this marriage over the years. The present version is that a gay person can be married to a straight person and shouldn’t suppress that gay side. I’ve never gotten anywhere good with anyone by being dishonest, so there it is. I’ve called myself retired but I work a lot - teaching college courses, writing. I spend a lot of my free time on my bicycle, on skis, or in a canoe or a kayak. Or in the garden, or reading, or writing. I'm looking for friends who get it that there’s a lot of diversity when it comes to sexuality. I’m impressed that many people write in these essays that they are appealing in so many ways (their bodies, their interests, their lovability). I tend to identify more with Popeye who said “I yam what I yam.” I’m strong and healthy and still have hair on my head. If you can connect with any of this, drop me a line. If you are full of yourself I might have trouble connecting.

Movies: About 90% of the time I think the last movie I saw was one of the "best” ever, but within a few weeks I can’t remember what it was called. This year “Philomena,” "Boyhood" and “Blue is the Warmest Color” are some that I haven’t forgotten.
There are people who say they never watch TV but do, and then there are people like me who don't.
“100 Years of Solitude,” “Transatlantic,” “Nobody’s Fool,” “The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love,” are a few novels that I’ve liked. Roddy Doyle, “Moby Dick,” lots of biographies and history as well. I enjoy reading first novels - by far the best this year was a transgender story called “For Today I am a Boy” by Kim Fu. "Far from the Tree" by Andrew Solomon and "Fire Shut up in My Bones" by Charles M. Blow really resonate.
My musical tastes. are all over the place - Regina Spektor, John Coltrane, Robyn, Doc Watson, Yo La Tengo, James Brown, Sharon Van Etten, Lou Reed. And so on.
