My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Back after over a year hiatus from online dating.

My nose wrinkles when I laugh; I drive by Braille; I don't make very good coffee, nor can I spell...my dog likes me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I feel like I threw everything up in the air and I am not sure where it will all land. However, I am blissfully content.

Though, I agree with Winnie the Pooh "Life is much friendlier with two."

Sometimes I read just before I fall a sleep a poem from Harold Bloom's "The Best Poems of the English Language, from Chaucer through Robert Frost." I like Louise Bogan's poem "Men Loved Wholly Beyond Wisdom," though it is not my favorite, it is apropos for okcupid. Or maybe a bit more blue and certainly not in the Bloom book, the John Fuller's poem "Valentine."

I use to read mostly nonfiction business books for example Jim Collins, and Chip and Dan Heath or Kahneman. But, I am having fun reading fiction lately, but also some non-business non-fiction such as "Beast in the Garden." Of course, not everything I read is highbrow - I read the "Hunger Game" series.

I read the NY Times religiously. Here as an appropriate to OK quote from a recent David Brooks editorial: "Data struggles with the social. Your brain is pretty bad at math (quick, what’s the square root of 437), but it’s excellent at social cognition. People are really good at mirroring each other’s emotional states, at detecting uncooperative behavior and at assigning value to things through emotion. Computer-driven data analysis, on the other hand, excels at measuring the quantity of social interactions but not the quality....Therefore, when making decisions about social relationships, it’s foolish to swap the amazing machine in your skull for the crude machine on your desk."
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
It might be more interesting to ask what I discovered over my life I could live without.

I am glad we have hot water.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
After 11 years of of a demanding executive position I agreed to temporarily help someone with a neat philanthropic project and now it is my job. I gave up the national platform and some compensation but possibly I have more impact. The quality of this new life is difficult to beat. I miss my team and the rush of rapid growth but I don't miss the way a demanding career can swamp your life. I now also have the time to teach at a local business school. Most importantly when someone I love and care for calls they not only reach me more readily, but they get my full attention. My ego rears its head now and then and I think about taking on another big gig, but by morning I am usually better - like an American ambition 24 hour flu.

My children have left the nest for college and I think about them and their happiness and future. I miss them. They do call when they need money:)

Before the road runs out I want to have some more adventures…possibly live overseas for a period, maybe NYC, more travel (though I have been to all seven continents.)

There is something wonderful about caring for another, trying to make their life easier, more enjoyable. Now that the kids are mostly gone I miss having an outlet for those impluses. I am perfectedly capable of being grumpy, selfish and preoccupied on occasion but life is best when I have the ease and energy to be focused on others. It would be heavenly to feel safe enough to be completely authentic and in love enough to be effortlessly generous.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have been a bit flip so in the privacy of the Internet, let me reveal what I really want. It would be heavenly to have a partner who enabled my dreams (I still have dreams to fulfill), helped me have fun (pulled me away from my responsibilities on occasion or made the responsibilities a bit lighter because they are shared) and helped me laugh (particularly at myself), stretched my thinking and just by being who they are encouraged me to grow (though not in dress size)...who adored me and wanted to make love to me in particular. And for whom all the reverse is true and reciprocated.
