My self-summary
Ok. I am more than a few lines on this page, but I need to put at least a thumbnail sketch, so here goes:

I am a romantic: holding hands, kissing, cuddling ,flowers just because.... I am a kind, trustworthy, nice guy. I am of a liberal bent. Some say my humor is a little quirky, a little dry (a bit of British humor over the years). I am a little bit of a science nerd. My curiosity has lead me to sometimes interesting things.

I am a compassionate friend, a passionate, giving lover, an intimate companion, and a good conversationalist. I am here looking for someone to share with, for the long term, the things I like and you like and the new things we find on the way.

I enjoy walking on a beach, exploring a narrow trail, strolling through an art museum, digging in the dirt. I enjoy a nice bottle of wine (though I probably couldn't tell the difference between a $15 and a $50 bottle of wine). I occasionally write poetry when the muse whispers.

For those of you who have seen me here before, i did get to China. Once in a lifetime event. Spent 6 days in in a rural town. Interesting and crazy.
What I’m doing with my life
It's been a long hard year for me, way to much work. Time to get "my groove " back. Trying to find love on all the wrong websites. ;-)
I’m really good at
I have been told I am an eloquent writer, and I am a real good guy. I crochet well, well the simple stuff anyway. I have a decent green thumb.
The first things people usually notice about me
I believe it's my height. The first thing I notice about a woman is her hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Anything written by William Gibson, sci-fi books and movies; romantic comedies (my favorite is 50 First Dates); TV shows: Game of Thrones, Big Bang Theory, Elementary, the last of Mythbusters, crime dramas. Music: I listen to a wide variety of music (except Rap, country, opera) some favorites: Stevie Ray Vaughn, Brubeck, 60's rock, New Wave, Chopin, Schubert.
The six things I could never do without
- the ability to sense my world (hearing, sight, etc.),
- my kids,
- curiosity,
- parks and gardens,
- books (or their technological equivalent),
- my ability to write
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend time thinking about my kids and grandkids. I spend a lot of time thinking about a lot of things. I generally don't sit around and contemplate my navel
On a typical Friday night I am
Right now I am generally home, relaxing, occasionally at friends. I am not a real big bar/club person. But karaoke occasionally is fun!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Most of what is most private about me, is shared with a select few, not for general consumption here.
