My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Complex man with a simple life seeks very smart, grounded, interesting woman. A killer sense of humor won't hurt.

Out of respect for your time and mine, here's a few things important to me. If this is not you.. good luck in your search. I am not your guy.
1) You did not vote for Mitt Romney.
2) You are pro-choice.
3) You know how to read a map.
4) You understand I have no interest in playing cards or board games.
5) You DO NOT believe in astrology. Even a little bit.

• Fabulous. (compared to Newt Gingrich)
• Short, fat, and poor. (compared to Brad Pitt)
• Tie-loathing explorer. (endlessly curious)
• Not hip or trendy. (trust me)
• Not a floozy. (loyal as a spaniel)
• Unconventional (rebel without a clue)
• Nature lover. (not Tarzan)
• Not a pirate. (no earrings)
• Informed. (curious and current)
• Enlightened traditional values. (I get it)
• Don't suffer fools. (you get it)
• Not a herd animal. (introvert, three is a crowd)
• Mostly morning person. (sunny side up)
• Sane. Sober. Sensible. (and cerebral)
• Rarely drink (a few drinks a year)
• Been/done global. (air travel is humiliating, no interest in more)
• Wide range of interests (science, politics, history, cool stuff)
• Not the country club type, no golf, no tennis (don't have the clothes)
• I enjoy simple pleasures, don't need to be entertained.
• I don't spin plates.

You ---- Seriously smart, closet tomboy with a little black dress, dry sense of humor with an edge, drop-dead interesting.
• Brains count, degrees don't.
• Grounded (quirky is good, crazy is not good).
• National Geographic sense of wonder.
• You don't have seven parrots.
• You don't expect me to rope cattle.

You are a REAL grownup with TIME for relationship, a SANE sense of adventure, the FREEDOM for UN-planned weekend expeditions, and OPEN to all night conversations 'til dawn's early light...

Most Important... You have good taste in men. If you have a long history of losers, I'm not your type.

Relationship... No rush. We share what works, don’t push what doesn’t. Over time we build the kind of relationship that works for both of us. Exclusive. Long term. No pouting.

Not born yesterday... six years U.S. Navy, nuclear submarines. Lived in Spain under Franco, Hawaii under Nixon. August '69 while you were at Woodstock, I was in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Seen enough of the world to know how it works. Cultures are different, people are people.

Enjoy... history, art, science, ideas, meaningful conversation, and all things Victorian/Edwardian. Love to meet someone who knows a thing or two about “The Age of Innocence” (a la Edith Wharton). Which, btw, was anything but.

Weekends... exploring rides to nowhere (from Stockbridge to Rockport), sunrise from Greylock, New England photo shoots, laid back country inn where everyone walks around in their socks, mountain bike the back roads (i brake for caterpillars), long walks, musing talks, rainy day movies, NPR, Garrison Keillor, c-span's bookTV, snoozy reading, moonlight in Vermont, moody music, dancing in the dark, lusty wine, and glacial pace dinners with lots of wandering conversation...

Truth Builds Trust... and saves time and disappointment. My age is correct. My words are true. My pictures are dated.
More Truth -- I have no interest in:
..... golf,
..... cards,
..... tennis,
..... whiners,
..... tattoos,
..... loud mouths,
..... board games,
..... practical jokes,
..... noisy neon glitz (casinos),
..... zoomy new age 'alternative' types (astrology, voodoo, psychic friends, yadda..)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Loving every minute... which does not mean busy, busy, busy. Nope. I know the art of contemplation, the value of introspection, and the fun of musing. In other words, I don't have to be in motion to be busy. You dig?

Volunteer... with The Trustees Of Reservations (I photograph historic events).

Work... Retired Engineer: I still enjoy science people and other deep thinker types. If I had it to do over, maybe a freelance science writer or whale watch sea captain.

Religion... Atheist (non-practicing)
My personal philosophy is grateful existentialist. I seek peace and understanding, not happiness. But I'm told a little happiness won’t hurt. My Fav Spiritual Mentor is Tevye (from Fiddler)

Photography... mostly a lot of aimless wandering with a camera as pretense to snoop. I'm most at peace trying to capture the mellow moods of landscape, the voltage of a city, or the pulse of a Ferrari.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
1) Being a dad ---- Daughter says "best dad in the world." I'll take her word for it.
2) When necessary ---- I have an x-ray glare that makes hungry lions reconsider.
3) Unflappable introvert ---- I devote my time and social energy to the select few. No interest in crowds or noisy parties full of loud mouths. I feel energized when focusing on a subject or activity that interests me. Seek environments of peace, sanctuary, and natural beauty. I have a rich inner life and don't need to be entertained.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My cold indifference to what other people think.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books... non-fiction, history, science, James Thurber (slays me). Emily Dickinson -- for some reason I actually 'get her' and enjoy the getting. I think we would've made a good deuce.

Movies... historical/period, esp. 19th century (Edith Wharton, Jane Austen, etc.), anything with Jack Nicholson, and my annual November favorite: "Scent of a Woman" (worth it just for the Al Pacino, Gabrielle Anwar tango scene)

Music... 60's street corner acapella doo-whop, Ludwig van B's Ninth, Eagles, early morning birds, bug songs from a meadow at dusk, distant fog horn on a rainy November night, the soothing silence of snow fall in the pines

Food... lasagna, sea food, basically if it doesn't put up too much of a struggle, I'll eat it.

TV... CNBC, MSNBC (R. Maddow, L. O'Donnell), Nova et al, C-SPAN's BookTV, SPEED channel (F1 and Le Mans 24hrs), 19th century stuff (Downton Abbey..)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I can do without a lot. And have. Six years in the Navy (1968-74). Much of that time submerged in a submarine. It explains a lot. :)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The miracle that is planet Earth. And how we are screwing it up.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Movie on the couch. Character and story get my attention. No need for explosions or shoot 'em up gore.

Catch up on my blog reading.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't understand why anyone would live in New Jersey.

Here's a few interesting women I would love to have dinner with: Carolyn Porco, Katrina vanden Heuvel, Helena Bonham Carter, Robin Wright (author/journalist), Christiane Amanpour, Tina Fey, and Rachel Maddow. There is a pattern here. Can you see it?

fyi.. I'm a down the middle INTJ . Look it up.
