My self-summary
I am now officially divorced, as of April of 2012 after being separated since 2006. Baggage free? Let's say that I have reduced the baggage considerably, and I have repaired the wheels on it as well so it is far more maneuverable. What does not kill me makes me stronger. Divorce is never really easy. It is just a matter of making the best of it.
What I’m doing with my life
Always working on my father role with my son as he works with new challenges at college. Home renovations.

As I key this in, December has arrived along with snow for cross country skiing. A little cold for December, so those hand warmers are good to keep close by.
I’m really good at
Finding the humorous side of untoward events that affect me. At the same time, I can empathize with others people's problems genuinely. I have done much long distance cycling, and with spring around the corner, -- it is, it really is -- I am working on getting my bicycle back in shape, so I can be in better shape. I am enjoying our winter's snow for the xc skiing opportunities. I enjoy its rhythms, and the brightness of the snow. As long as those northerly winds hold off.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I look "just like Robin Williams" only without the dark features. My reddish blond hair is now more of a silver blond, plus a goatee. And my sense of humor is better than his. ;-)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Many books! However, lately, I have become very intrigued by Andrew Solomon .... have read his "Noonsday Demon" and looking forward to getting "Far from the Tree" plus others. His words flow so easily, so beautifully, and his perspectives on issues that challenge our society are so very insightful and sensitive.

Many movies, often the one I just saw as I must be unconsciously still processing it; Monster's Ball; Green Mile; especially those with Morgan Freeman like the Bucket List, Million Dollar Baby, Shawshank Redemption, and Glory; Heartland, Big Chill, Dead Poets Society, True Grit, Mystic River, Gone with the Wind; Good Morning Vietnam!; Mrs. Doubtfire, Gran Torino and the list goes on.

Food: What don't I like! I pretty much stay away from fast food as it is too slow getting rid of the weight past the age of 40 yo. Of course, I love Italian, Thai, Greek, pizza (often I just buy a good premade crust and make the rest), Mexican, Cuban, Ethiopian, Vietnamese, good Chinese, and on.

Music: good old Classic Rock, and a lot of rock since that time as well; jazz like Miles Davis; Pat Methany and others; classical....plus some music does not really fit a category. I usually fall to sleep listening to Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata lately.
Today (Dec2013) I listened to the soundtrack of the movie "Big Chill" and found the old Motown hits quite moving. The Rolling Stones can really move my feet, but old Motown like "When a Man loves a Woman" and "My Girl" and "Tracks of My Tears" (guess I really like Smokey Robinson) can really move my heart. On that note, I am looking for that special lady who can make the "tracks of my tears" more a thing of the past, and be the "sunshine on a cloudy day." That may be you .... yes?
Thinking of older music, I am truly looking for my Queen of Hearts (as in Eagles "Desperado") after my past experience with a Queen of Diamonds. I have learned that a QofD is not my true desire, and a QofH -- a true friend and lover -- would be my best bet.
The six things I could never do without
Would that be like duct tape??
No, no, no, two things that I have worked hard on and am glad to have them (and there are more, but these come to mind) are:
Sense of Gratitude
Sense of Humor
I know I have had a lot of help getting the gratitude part, and am humble enough to admit that, plus I recall some distinct childhood disappointments that made developing a sense of humor invaluable to get by those rough spots in life.
Of course, I assume everyone feels family, friends and health belong here, I mean, that is just basic...........gratitude. So... some of things that just make the moment for me include: great coffee, touch which can include just an emotional connection, good music, and a sense of purpose. Those, again, just come to mind.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What this Saturday's winning lottery numbers will be.
On a typical Friday night I am
Why do you think I'm here??
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That Christmas is past .... and I am disappointed. I thought I was a good boy alllll year long. But Santa did not leave my soulmate under the Christmas tree for me. I guess I have to keep looking myself ......
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 39–63
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You like a guy with a sense of humor, and you exercise your own silliness as well. Whimsy is totally underrated. I remember a friend who would hide surprising items in his Christmas tree ..... like a three foot rubber snake wrapped around the trunk, perhaps a dog biscuit or two, or another random item. Not an entire satirical reinterpretation of a functional item or decoration, but juuuuussst enough to keep me on my toes. If that is you, I have to meet you!!

You seriously enjoy a man to share outside activities such as bicycling, cross country skiing, hiking and camping. And love live theatre, great jazz, classical music, and the blues.

As with life in general, everyone has their likes and preferences, and I don't view dating as ordering a pizza with a required set of toppings, and so overall, I want to share life with someone who is a participant in life, not just an onlooker.
