My self-summary
I'm not as serious as the rest of this profile sounds. I like to talk, think, laugh, and waste time with the right people.

I value thoughtfulness. My ideal, future self will have read and processed enough to engage with anyone on any topic in a meaningful way. I've been told many times that I'm overly critical; I think that just means I give a shit. For me, the best relationships are those that draw you out.

I love talking about conceptual art, poetry, design, music (though I'm no expert), philosophy, and people. I make objects with fair success and imagine I'll be making things forever. Right now I'm working on furniture, a few bad paintings, and a few good compositions. You can see some older prints and collages at: www.scook.info

I have never really wondered about my path or felt a need to find myself. Life is mysterious but not in any frustrating way.

I often think I would have been satisfied with a completely vanilla existence if that had been an option. It is not; I’m in a wheelchair. It’s a pretty big deal. This strange life has gone pretty well so far. I obviously don’t dance though I've noticed that most of my friends do.
What I’m doing with my life
A few months ago I quit my 9-5 at a respected architectural firm to go work at my friend's wood shop part time. I design, keep the books straight, and draw. I have more time to spend on my own projects than I'd ever thought possible. It's a daunting thing, all that time. I'm learning that it takes far more will to structure an entire day than it does those few precious hours after eight in the office. Still, it's working. Life is good.
I’m really good at
conversation, design
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Poetry, essays, and short stories all work. Charles Simic, Sam Willetts, and Linh Dinh are great. Patti Smith's Just Kids made me so incredibly jealous.

I listen to jazz, soft folk, solo piano, and wall of sound drone music most of the time. Right now I'm on a huge rock mode. Kurt Vile's show at the Mohawk was fucking great. The wheelchair got me backstage. We shook hands. It was magic.

Though I try not to watch TV, I can talk at length about almost every significant show put out in the last 20 years. At least I'm not watching anything right now. In terms of movies, Withnail and I, Blade Runner, The Fantastic Mr. Fox, Manhattan, Down by Law, Antichrist, Deadman, Uncle Boonmee, Twin Peaks, and Six Feet Under are all great. The last four films I've seen were all Lynch. My dreams are beginning to reflect this.
The six things I could never do without
unoccupied time, close friendships, intense conversation, delicious food, art, and an ereader
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what to make, what to read, and the best way to leverage my unusual position in life.

people. The lives of friends and strangers. I often think via conversation with the internal versions of people I've known. Crazy?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm reading and working through "The Artist's Way." I'm usually much more cynical.

You should message me if
...you're looking for new friends and you'd like to get a drink. I love to meet people at work on difficult, meaningful projects but really, I just like people who spend their time beautifully. Product isn't important.

...you are moved by ideas and like to elaborate them in conversation. Though I admire those who dance and fight, I'm best with verbal connections.

...personality determines attraction.
