My self-summary
I am a writer/composer/director/librarian/enthusiast of dogs, trees, water, skies, clouds, oceans. I dream a lot, and my late English mastiff makes regular appearances.

I am passionately inquisitive and enlivened and inspired by the world outside my comfort zone. At the same time, I know there are like-minded souls out there. Which is why I am here.

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.
What I’m doing with my life
i just started taking piano lessons. and i have aspirations to write a book, or at least the first sentence of the book. And working on some songs. And trying to find the perfect apartment in an imperfect world. And working. And somehow trying to connect it all.
I’m really good at
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
my tallness, my glasses.... actually i tend to not notice what people notice about me. maybe i should pay more attention to this.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
i'll tell you the latest, but these are not necessarily my favorites.
Books: Franny and Zooey; Kafka's diaries; Anyone's diaries; Thhe Little Prince; The Oxford Rhyming Dictionary. At the time of this profile, I also finally finished Anna Karenina and don't know why it took me so long to get to it... and no, i won't tell you how it ends, but i will tell you it is better than the movie.
Movies: Cave of Forgotten Dreams, The Trip, Vertigo, Rosemary's Baby, Wings of Desire, Hannah and Her Sisters, Love Streams, Fargo, Fanny and Alexander, The Philadelphia Story
Music: Dylan, Mozart, Leonard Cohen, Joanna Newsom, Velvet Underground, Bach, White Stripes, Schubert, Carla Bley, Marianne Faithful, the Stooges, 8th blackbird, Verdi, Ornette Coleman, Neko Case.
Today I think that "Visions of Johanna" is the greatest song ever written.
TV: I watch mainly streaming Netflix, but I like The Office, Six Feet Under, The Wire, Mad Men, Seinfeld, etc.
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
mobility/travel, water, many forms of art, my various communities, sleep, Pandora
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what to do next, who to invite, and how to get there
On a typical Friday night I am
hungry? surprised? waifish? open to most things?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i'm capable of getting lost, even with GPS voice navigation
