My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am kind-hearted - I smile at strangers and hold doors open for men and women
I often see things that others do not
I love words and reading is perhaps my greatest pleasure but lately have had difficulty finding a book that moves me
I believe dogs are some kind of mystical transcendent beings sent here to make us happy
I am very good at repairing vacuum cleaners

I also believe in miracles - strange and wonderful things, they happen everyday

I am he as you are he, as you are me, and we are all together
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've recently completed a long and semi-traumatic move from a lovely place in the country with acreage, woods and fields on a private dirt road for a small house in the village where I can walk pretty much everywhere I need to go and can go for days without getting in my car -- I'm getting too old to deal with the snow and ice and often being snowbound for days at a time

it's been kind of a shock to the system, and a big life change, but I've fenced in my yard so the dogs can run around and I'm glad to be here

other than that I do freelance writing for several local papers (mostly arts and entertainment stuff) and run the funky old movie theater in town
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
though one would never know it by what I've written here - writing... and sensing things
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
my red-framed glasses - other than that I am spy-like and love to slip around un-noticed (which is difficult to do in a town where everyone knows me and I might as well be the freakin' mayor)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I have a strange relationship with music - I love it, as pretty much everyone does, but I seldom want to go out and hear it live... there is something "just not right" about sitting there and demanding of someone, no matter how talented, to "entertain me"

by far, the best musical moments of my life have taken place in a friend's living room, or at 3am at a closed-down pub, when my friends and I are participating all together in a music or song session of some kind and everyone plays or sings together, and the harmonies swell up and threaten to take you away somewhere far away from this earth and one transcends anything one can hear at the Iron Horse or a local club

I read voraciously - a lot of contemporary "literary" fiction and boigraphies of people I think are cool, and social histories- with a particular interest in the history of New York City, and the "Beats"

I balance this out with a fascination with "noir" and "hardboilded" mysteries

I try to read something of a spiritual nature everyday

movies - wide range here - especially love 70s films - Altman, Scorsese, Coppola - good current indies and classics (this is what we show at my theater) ... late at night, after a hard day of work, can veg out to any kind of Hollywood trash, the more mindless the better
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
existential angst
ironic detachment barely masking gentle hopes
wistful regrets for chances nearly missed
the illusion of falling from a great height
pining for the fjords
The Venerable Bede
tragic yearning
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Edna St Vincent Millay
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die

(I am continually surprised by how few people "get" this reference - it's from a Johnny Cash song people - rest assured I've never shot a man in Reno, or elsewhere)
