My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My friends describe me as active, engaged, caring, optimistic, and always there for them. I am warm, compassionate, and a hopeless romantic. Activities I enjoy include going out to dinner, quiet evenings at home with someone special, live theater, movies, photography, reading, traveling and sight-seeing, especially exploring new places ranging from cities to wilderness. I also enjoy walks in the woods, river rafting, and kayaking. The proverbial walk on the beach at sunset doesn’t sound too bad either.

I'm a progressive from the '60s, now into my own 60s, but hanging on to values of yesteryear. I’m still marching, e-mailing, and trying to set things right (left). I expect to continue to be active (politically and in all aspects of life) for a long time. My mother lived to be 97 and like her I look at least 10 years younger than my actual age and expect to live another 30 years or so.

I've been divorced for several years and am ready to meet new people, make new friends, and hopefully enjoy a new longterm, relationship. I hope to meet someone who is gentle, kind, loving, shares some of my interests, has a good sense of humor, and a love of adventure.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm retired after enjoying a career as a children’s librarian and still substitute in the libraries as needed. This gives me an opportunity do things I enjoy and still keep active in my profession. Since retiring, I have traveled a bit, done some photography, and worked on my vegetable garden. My travels have ranged as far west as California and as far east as Turkey. Watching the sunrise over Cappadocia, Turkey from a hot air balloon was absolutely amazing!

I have also done some volunteer work on political campaigns and on issues (peace, environment, gay marriage, etc.), and hope to do more. I go to the gym a few times a week for exercise, and would like to get there more often. Meanwhile...I'm hoping to try a number of new things over the next 30 or so years - - any suggestions?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Seeking new adventures, listening, and helping when someone needs help. Long term friendships -- I have friends from childhood, college, grad school, and various places I have lived over the years. Cooking, photography, procrastination and disorganization.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm not sure. Tell me what you notice.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read a mix of non-fiction and fiction for adults and children - favorites change as I read new books. As a children's librarian I have read thousands of children's books and have too many favorites to list here.

I enjoy movies but don't see as many as I would like. A new favorite is Chasing Ice in part for how well it depicts the the issue of global warming but equally for the amazing photography. Some old favorites are Singin' In The Rain, Wizard of Oz, an old black and white version of A Christmas Carol, and Inherit the Wind. More recent movies -- Lincoln, Milk, Good Night and Good Luck, Slumdog Millionaire, The King's Speech, Iron Lady, Les Miserables, Philomena, and more. Theater/musicals La Cage Aux Folles, Fiddler On The Roof, Sound Of Music, Book of Mormon...
Music -- Folk (American, Irish, Other) especially 1960s protest songs, Classical, Beatles, Tom Lehrer, and almost anything that is not too loud. I'm always happy to listen to something new (to me).

I like a variety of foods -- Chinese, Vietnamese, Italian, Mexican, fruit, veggies, and chocolate. As of 2011 I am a vegetarian, so far I'm doing well. I'll try most things that are not too spicy. I'm non judgmental and don't expect you to be vegetarian.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family
Friends
Books
Travel with my camera
NPR
Communications devices -- telephone and computer

Many years ago when I was river rafting and camping I realized that luxury was a latrine that was not a long walk from the campsite and necessity was a warm sweater on a cold night.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My daughter's recent and very suddenly death from a malignant brain tumor . Questioning why this had to happen and things I can't yet put into words.

Despite the above I still think about possibility of a new longterm relationship. Fun-filled adventures. The environment. Things that are happening in the world and being concerned about the direction in which our country is moving especially the current crop of Republicans.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
No typical Friday night - it varies from week to week. Sometimes I'm out with friends -- dinner, theater, movie, whatever. Other times I'm at the gym or at home, talking with friends, curling up with a good book, using my computer, or occasionally watching television.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are a warm, caring, honest, compassionate, intelligent man who is also a good listener and has a good sense of humor. You want a combination of quiet times together, travel, fun, and maybe adventure. My profile appeals to you. You would like to talk and explore the possibility of meeting.
