My self-summary
Profile is a work in progress. Feel free to visit again and learn more.

No spouse, no kids, no pets, no debt, though I like kids, cats, dogs, and horses.

I am a master of the obscure and offbeat. Hyperbole is one of my hobbies.

Some favorite quotes:

"Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read."

"I won't belong to any organization that would have me as a member."

"Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans."

"You are not a man."--"Then what are all those sport coats and ties doing in my closet?"

"If you're not going to kill me, I have things to do."

“Love is a kind of warfare.”

"From you I receive, to you I give, together we share, in this we live."

"Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without."

"I think of a man, and I take away reason and accountability."

"Get in, sit down, hold on, shut up" (not necessarily in that order).

“Mary had a little lamb, and when she saw it sicken, she shipped it off to Packingtown, and now it's labeled chicken.”

"Less is more."

"Be careful what you ask for, because God sometimes punishes us by granting our prayers."

Favorite obscure scientific facts:
1--Termites chew through wood faster when listening to rock music.
2--Polar bear livers contain so much vitamin A that they are toxic to humans.

Personal creed: We all do the best we can in each particular moment of imperfection that drives our existence.
What I’m doing with my life
I lead an unconventional life. I have engaged in various professions, most recently as a lawyer, and did that for many years in New York City. I have always rejected many aspects of the culture of the legal profession, however. Semi-retired at this time.

In general, I prefer small towns and the country to the city, but am not averse to occasional visits to big cities. Lately, I work on my 120 year old house and attend social dance events. Once my current projects are finished, I will move on to other interests.
I’m really good at
Many things, including afternoon naps and construing life as a continuous work of performance art.

Making things last a long time, despite using this website.
The first things people usually notice about me
I look forward to you telling me. Feedback I have received include the following:
--smile and dimples
--creativity, sense of humor, use of language
--strength, composure, patience
--persistence and attention to details
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books--1984, A Clockwork Orange, The Great Chain of Being, A Civil Action, various works of nonfiction by Tracy Kidder. In the past, I enjoyed Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., and various others. Although I enjoyed novels when I was younger, I now tend to prefer nonfiction over fiction, except I like works by Jeffrey Eugenides.

Movies--Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle, Forrest Gump, Lars and the Real Girl, Best in Show, Punch Line, Clean and Sober, Dances with Wolves, The King's Speech, Fight Club, Fitzcarraldo, The Marriage of Maria Braun, The Vanishing, Searching for Bobby Fischer, Leaving Las Vegas, Torch Song Trilogy, Sleuth, DOA, The Green Mile, Goodfellas, Jungle Fever, Tender Mercies, Noodle, A Simple Plan, Affliction, Billy Elliot, Shawshank Redemption, all the old classics involving Bogart and Hitchcock. Many others too numerous to list here.

My tastes in books, movies, and other entertainment can be eclectic, but I don't shy away from the mainstream when it piques my interest.

Seinfeld, Mad Men, Lost, The Office, The Good Wife, Da Vinci's Inquest, Selected Shorts, Le Show, Prairie Home Companion, American Roots Music, Hudson River Sampler, The Writer's Almanac, Car Talk, George Carlin.

Jeopardy--I watch semi-regularly, and often know correct answers.

My diet is simple and omnivorous, and I enjoy occasional exotic meals at nice restaurants. I cook almost every day, and enjoy preparing and eating home cooked meals with a significant other. Not much red meat. I have visualized myself evolving into a chicken as a version of Franz Kafka's "Metamorphosis." Pesto, fish and all types of seafood, seasonal locally grown fruit and produce.

Miles Davis, Billy Bragg, John Mayer, Wilco, John Prine, Rolling Stones, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, The Band, good music for various types of swing dancing and other partner dances.
The six things I could never do without
Items are not listed in any particular order of importance. I omit obvious essentials of air, food, water, and sleep.

--Stimulating conversation
--Dr. Bronner's peppermint soap
--Apple cider, pressed locally
--Real maple syrup
--Toilet paper
--Various activities, including playing chess, playing pool, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, playing baseball in summer
--I virtually never watch sports on tv, and generally avoid attending live sporting events, though I occasionally make exceptions.
