My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a writer/composer/director/librarian/enthusiast of cities, dogs, trees, water, skies, clouds, oceans.

I am passionately inquisitive and enlivened and inspired by the world outside my comfort zone. I kind of thrive upon that. But the comfort zone is a nice place to hang out once in a while.

If you listen to my iTunes collection on shuffle, that might tell you everything there is to know about me, perhaps more so than words.

Yes, it's true. I am ultimately looking for a long-term relationship, but I would also be happy to have some new friends to pal around with. i don't expect okcupid to be this "all or nothing" thing for me.

I know there are like-minded souls out there. Which is why I am here.

I am happy to tell you more in an email or live conversation, but, for now, I am trying to keep this profile spare and non-memoir-ish.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Taking piano lessons, and making a molecule of progress each week. Working on some art projects (stories, videos, and songs). Exercise on foot or in water or at the gym. Trying to remember to meditate. And then there's my job. And somehow trying to connect it all.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
ping pong. listening. composing. research. day-dreaming. dog-walking. stirring things for my friends who like to cook. Getting better at organizing my carry-on baggage to get through airport security more expeditiously.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My tallness, I guess. I get lots of compliments about my glasses. But actually i tend to not notice what people notice about me. maybe i should pay more attention to this.

Yesterday, I thought that "Visions of Johanna" was the greatest song ever written. But then today, I listened to "Dear Prudence" for the first time in years, and that is quite something, too.

TV: I rarely watch live television (who does?, but I will go on Netflix streaming binges... like Breaking Bad, The Office, Battlestar Galactica. I like occasional moments of Louis CK, Daily Show, Colbert. And I have to admit, NBA basketball. I thought that Six Feet Under was great.

Food: sushi, anything with salmon, or water, or chocolate, or Indian, or really anything without bleu cheese or mushrooms
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
my various communities of friends, family and friendly acquaintances
dreams and dream interpretations
and it's hard for me to imagine what my life was like before the iphone
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
what to do next, who to invite, and how to get there
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
hungry? surprised? waifish? open to most things?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm capable of getting lost, even with GPS voice navigation


I can be shy at first, but that dissolves pretty quickly with the right people.
