My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Looking for a man who is emotionally, intellectually and physically appealing per my somewhat non-standard standards, a gentleman and a scholar (or scientist), a grown up, with a theoretical and speculative turn of mind. A man with whom I can share at least some of these: serious fiction, science fiction, jazz, yoga, the ocean (sailing, swimming, snorkeling, diving) and cooking. I am physically active and youthful, slender, well educated in liberal arts (taught English at the college level) and the sciences (mechanical engineer); I still have the liberal values of my college/hippie days; I enjoy travel, have lived abroad, speak German well and Spanish badly; I want to share and enjoy life, its pleasures and beauties and not waste time. Kindness and graciousness are a must.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Enjoying it. Making it count.

Books:
The list is so long as to be intimidating to some, intriguing to others, I am working on the right length and balance of choices: "serious literature" (I have read a lot), science fiction (a life long passion, thought not the most recent stuff). No longer have time to read much light weight fiction, but light is good, love P.G.W. (if you know immediately, email me).

Short List for Sci-Fi:
The Basics Everybody starts with: Heinlein (sentimental favorites: Farnham's Freehold, Red Planet, Podkayne, Door into Summer, Number of the Beast), Asimov (Robots, particularly I Robot, and Foundation), Clarke (esp Rendezvous with Rama), Simak (City),
Bradbury (The Martian Chronicles), Herbert, Miller (Canticle for Leibowitz).

Some of My Favorites: Le Guin (Left Hand of Darkness, City of Illusion), Stephenson (Snowcrash, The Diamond Age), Bishop (Transfigurations, Ancient of Days, No Enemy But Time), Tepper (The Gate to Women’s Country), Tanith Lee (Drinking Sapphire Wine), Niven & Pournelle (Mote in God’s Eye), Kaye & Goodwin (Masters of Solitude, Wintermind), Vonnegut (Mother Night).
Varley (everything), Marion Zimmer Bradley (The Shattered Chain, Thendara House, Oath of the Renunciates, Mists of Avalon (but Mary Stewart is even better for Arthurian Saga)). Zenna Henderson. I recently read David Brin's Kiln People and it is quite a book, very entertaining, but also leaves you this lots to ponder.

Music: Jazz first, rock second, then old rock and roll and folk, gypsy music, some country, not much into classical. For Jazz there are just too many greats to mention. I am biased towards horn players: John Coltrance and Miles Davis, of course, also Stan Getz, Lester Young, Hank Crawford, Chet Baker and Clifford Brown (and many others). For piano I particularly like Ahmad Jamal, also Keith Jarret, Dave Brubeck and others. For Guitar Kenny Burrell and Pat Metheny. Vocalists: Billie Holiday, Maria Muldaur (if you don't know her as a Jazz singer, and you like jazz, you should), Sarah Vaughan, Eva Cassidy, Rod Stewart, Dinah Washington, Diane Reeves, Diana Krall, Nancy Wilson, Leon Redbone, Lena Horne, Tom Waits, Diane Schuur, Dr. John, and that's just for starters.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Music, food, love, kindness, intellectual stimulation, good fiction, not necessarily in that order. And that's six, no room for other pleasures I would hate to do without.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Ideas (which I infinitely prefer to gossip): literature, anthropology, evolution, science, food, sex, neurology, psychology, theology.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably cooking and listening to music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I am using an online dating service.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If my profile interests you, you read fiction (and think it's important) and you like jazz.
