Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Writing, reading, music (classical), fishing and boats. Then
Gardening , then, again, back to listening -to people and to music.
I confess I have little room for the negativity of whining, yelling
or blaming. Too much to live for. I care less where you've been and
more who you are. Want to be a partner, not a caretaker, a lover
not a pleaser. Ahh, I love: my dogs, my kids, my grand kids,
Central Oregon, rivers, all rivers, fly fishing, singing when no
one is there to be scared off, classical music, imagining myself as
frontiersman (I'm not, but did just buy a converted barn very near
a lake), my bodily feelings when at the gym, when listening to
music, when being touched. Gratitude and appreciation is the only
possible response to most things. I thank God for what I've been
given, what's been taken away and for what's left.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to be more reflective and to center my thoughts and actions
around things that are most meaningful and that is not always easy
. Trivia intrudes too much and there's never enough time to
(attempt to) write.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Well, sometimes garden doesn't grow well and I learn to live with
that. Hmm, flycast could improve now that I think of it -minor
things though. Mostly like to find the good in people. I'm pretty
good at that.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have good energy, am adventurous. I like to think (Le penseur has
a big private side) & converse (public side). Socially I am
hardly ever fearful of being myself. I love a good joke.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Soloist, Adaptation, other art films. Faulkner, Heidegger,Levinas,
ehh. Lots of others...philosophy, fiction and theology (enough to
stay far, far away from anything smelling of fundamentalism!) Been
thinking of starting an alternative church, maybe call it The
Church of the Exciting Life. Music: beethoven, saint-Saens,
Sammartini, dire straits- thats a taste. If you love Gorecki's
third symphony, feel its passion, I am already in love with you!
I'll eat most things and I participate in a very large community
garden. I get lobster from the coop at my place in Maine.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Writing, private time, affection/passion, music, challenges, my
adult kids and grandkids, not in that order and sometimes all
together at once.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Does space end where I begin or is it the other way around? More
seriously -and I know this may sound silly to some- I'm always
tinkering with how to write a really good English sentence, maybe
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Wondering about going to Maine for the weekend. I still have to
cover the boat!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I die, I want to do so listening to good music, hugging my
beloved, petting my dog and looking upward

Anyone writing to another is, well, a really good thing and I look
forward to hearing from you. Don't write, though, if all you really
want is to go to Paris or be made to laugh if you can't do so
already. Do write if you wish to pet my dogs, ride the boat, feel
and give love, listen to music, converse with true reciprocity,
don't easily take offense at things, and are grateful to the world
for the honor of just being here. I look forward to hearing from
