Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A turtle was walking down an alley in NYC....... when he was
by a gang of snails. A police detective came to investigate
asked the turtle if he could explain what happened. The
looked at the detective with a confused look on his face and
replied “I don't know, it all happened so fast........” Enough

taker!...in the spirit of adventure and learning. Fun loving
with a serious side. Two terrific, normal kids, on their way
being great adults, one in college, has boomeranged. I am

tastes- Believe it or not, have a side job getting paid to
movies! Big reader, too. NY Times on Sunday, good fiction,
fiction. Also like to write- Looking to share the pleasures of
with someone...who is spirited, independent, soulful, fun, and
a zest for life. There's nothing better than a good sense of

intimacy where that's only natural. Meet me and my yellow lab

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
For work- non profit management. That has kept me growing
professionally and personally for many years. Like most who do non
profit work, I lean over to the left.
Kids are pretty much raised, tho if you have older kids you know
it's a different set of issues. They know I am open and can handle
anything they bring me, so we talk a lot, laugh a lot, and I am
feeling good about the relationships we have grown into.
I volunteer for an organization I love which creates global
citizens with an eye towards world peace- so "sixties", so worth
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Getting to know people and having fun while doing it. Being
accepting. Doing what I say I am going to do. Talking police out of
giving me speeding tickets.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
This changes all the time...food? That's easy, the spicier the
better, and love to experiment with ethnic dining. Music- Bon
Hiver, Ray Lamontagne, funky friday.. and whatever's on xpn and new
and interesting. Movies- so many, lots of indie, action, a great
movie moves you, and doesn't necessarily fit into one genre or
another. Reading a novel called "Submission" about designing the
9/11 memorial- clue- they unknowingly select a Muslim architect.

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Interesting work to do

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Much too much time thinking about relationships.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Varies- dinner with friends, crashing at home with a good book or
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once dated a Republican. Unknowingly.
