My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I enjoy flying in airplanes, but...

I enjoy driving more than flying. A nice drive to the coast or through the mountains can be a lot of fun.

I would rather ride a bike than drive. A bike ride can be exhilarating.

I would rather walk than ride. There is so much to see along the way. And if I'm with my sweetie it's easier to stop and smooch.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
If I were writing the story of my life (and we all are, metaphorically) this would be the start of a new volume. With some major changes in my life I'm finding new adventures, opportunities, and possibilities. I'm spending a lot of time getting to know myself all over again, and I like who I see.

Writing out this profile, however small a slice of reality it is, feels a bit strange and out-of-character and exciting all at the same time. I'm learning to dance, to cook, to be more purposeful and spontaneous than ever before.

I feel like I've been dropped in an unfamiliar land with a backpack, journal, flute, and an odd map written in a foreign language. I'm up for the challenge.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
There are a handful of meals I cook that I'm proud of. Not too many at the moment, but stay tuned because I'm expanding my skills in the kitchen. I listen well. I find people and their stories fascinating. I can fix a bike. I play a reasonable game of Backgammon. I'm a good kisser (at least, I enjoy it very much!). I have a good sense of direction. Although I will say that when I DO get turned around, I'm quite good at getting lost. But I don't see getting lost as a problem.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It has never occurred to me to ask. I'd like to think it's my smile, or my open honesty. Should we meet, let me know what YOU notice first.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm currently reading the Sano books by Laura Joh Rowland and the Leaphorn and Chee books by Tony Hillerman.
Update 2014-06-14: I've finished the Rowland and Hillerman books. Got any favorites you'd like to recommend?

A handful of old favorites:

The Wind in the Willows. Watership Down. On the Loose. Winterkill. Just about anything from Edgar Allen Poe, Krisnamurti, Tony Hillerman, Richard Fynman, Cecilia Holland, Laura Jon Rowland. Mysteries, older science fiction, westerns, books about nature, biographies.

Run Lola Run. The Professional. The Last of the Mohicans. The Little Girl Who Lived Down the Lane. Go. The Fifth Element. Fly Away Home. O Brother, Where Art Thou?. The Journey of Natty Gann.

Firefly. Dead Like Me. Portlandia. Medium.

Music - I have thousands of songs in iTunes from hundreds of artists, and I'm adding more all the time. From classic rock to pop to western to indie to classical to folk to jazz to medieval to celtic to acoustic to Bhangra to blues to Indian flute and back.

Fresh fruits, a good cheeseburger (with good fries - can't be beat), fresh bread, raw vegetables, chocolate (is that a food or a drug?), pizza, waffles with Vermont maple syrup (grade A medium amber or dark amber preferred).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I'm not going to limit myself to an arbitrary number, so...

I love the outdoors. Forests. Mountains. Clear running streams. Wildlife. The smell of the air after a rainstorm. The sound of the ocean, the feel of the beach on my bare feet. Moonlight, firelight, candlelight. The whisper of the wind. The way I feel when someone I love smiles. Holding hands. Kissing. Sharing. The wag of a dog's tail. The feel of an old paperback. Flannel shirts. Hot cocoa on a snowy day. A healthy laugh. The sound of delighted children. Freshly laundered sheets. Butterscotch. The smell of fresh bread. Music.

And I'm just getting started.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
If I'm reading a good book I might be thinking about the story line. What if this or that had been different, how would it have affected the outcome? If I'm listening to music I might be thinking about what the lyrics mean, or how the music makes me feel. If I'm out in the woods or desert I'm probably lost in the moment, absorbed by all that surrounds me.

Sometimes, I'm just filled with wonder. I have countless questions and few answers. That state of being doesn't bother me at all.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Since I'm almost always working at least one weekend day if not two, then my typical Friday is often not that much different from any other night. So on my "Friday" night, whatever day that lands on, I'm most often staying up later, usually going out somewhere, possibly planning for a short getaway, occasionally baking bread or cookies, and once in a while doing absolutely nothing - with style.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Publicly admit? I like ABBA.

Also, while not private, here is a fun fact about me. I like math jokes. Two of my favorite:
"There are 10 kind of people. Those who understand binary and those who don't."
"If I had to sum up myself in three words it would be: I suck at math."

If we meet in person and you want to get an oddball peek of my personality and you have a LOT of time – ask me about pencils.

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
A footnote (headnote?): In the "I'm looking for" section it's all multiple choice with not much that fits well. Ignore all of it. If you want to contact me, please do.

I'm still putting my life together and figuring out who I am (who isn't?). I've set out to make new friends and share some life experiences with them. That can mean trying out a new tea at a café, being a partner for dancing lessons, playing chicken with the waterline at a beach, a friendly game of pool, a serene walk through the woods, watching an old movie snuggled on the couch - what comes to mind for you?

I don't follow a religion (I don't follow much of anything) but I find the world filled with wonder. I love finding out how things work, especially in the natural world. If you are spiritually inclined we could be a good match, or maybe not. I'd love to find out. If you are a devout Christian then we probably won't be a good match. The same holds true if you feel any form of non-heterosexuality is immoral. You and I will be too divided on things I feel strongly about. In that case let's both look for a better match.

If you like what you've read so far, send me a message. I've answered a number of general questions so you may get a better feel of who I am by reading those. I'm very interested in expanding my circle of friends. If you live nearby, perhaps we could meet. If you live anywhere near a road, my Mini Cooper would love to take me there. If you live far from a road, I've got a pair of well worn Danner boots that never tire of the feel of the earth beneath them. If you live too far away for a quick visit, I'd still like to get to know you. Life is short, and who knows where tomorrow will find us.
