My self-summary
Every encounter I have had in my life has made some change in who I am. I am not done. I am not finished. I am drawn to people who live this unfinished life in motion. People who say NO are rewarded with the safety they achieve, people who say YES are rewarded with the adventures they live. This doesn't mean jumping out of planes, running with bulls or taunting inanimate objects. It can be as simple as stopping for an hour and listening.

I really have no answers. I really do not feel the desire to fill this box, on this screen, with things that will make me sound "appealing", I am appealing, just ask the studio audience. They are paid to make me sound funny and interesting. Now and then they give me an awwww ... usually when I am holding a baby lion, tiger, bear or a firm cream cheese.

I like books and food, the sound of laughter, the heat of a good argument. The crack of a ball off a bat, dark bars on Tuesday afternoons, theater, fall, muggers who wear name tags so the experience is more personal. I am hoping for someone who wants to take the time to get me and show me who they are at this point in time. It should be noted that I do not possess, nor do I desire to possess, the trappings of adulthood. I do not own a car because I hate driving. I have a job that is a passion and it does really consume my life for large moments, however, since it is "fun" to the outside world, it is not often seen as a legitimate job. To those people I say, "well ..." I have a a peter pan peanut butter complex, which is less psychologically damaging than a straight forward peter pan complex. I simply do not think growing up means stopping changing or "acting a certain age." I do like life that sticks to you and makes things interesting.

Truthfully, conflict will happen. Anyone who thinks that they can be with another person and not have moments of conflict is seeking a robot. How we resolve conflict, learn from it, move forward with it is interesting to me. Conflict, to me, is not the same thing as what some call "drama" .... drama is a literary genre and a performance style. That's not life. I am willing to listen and learn. I am willing to be open. I am willing to try. I am willing to share my lunch, my hopes, dreams, desires ... Not my socks ... I want to take time and be, see what that leads to. I am looking for simple.

Simple not in the, my dad and mom were brother and sister and now I look like an evolutionary mishap, simple. But simple in the way we respect and listen, think and act. There are so many weird, unknowable factors in finding romance, finding love, finding a parking space, finding that other sock that was lost in the dryer, finding someone ... I don't want to add to the difficulties with trivial games and lies.

If you have time, patience, interest and a red wagon or a radio flyer sled and you've got a free minute, drop me a line, I promise to respond.

That I am not heavily armed. That I appear to be very shy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
So many books and movies yet to be seen and so many that have already had a profound effect on me ... I don't want to insult any by leaving them off the list.
The six things I could never do without
I don't know. I mean there are certain things I would rather not do without, but, if I had to do without them, I would endeavor to do so. I couldn't do without thinking. I couldn't do without breathing ... those types of things. But, as far as materiel goods; A good, heavy pen. Paper to write on. Shoes to walk in. Foods to fill me. Laughter. Music. The word supine.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Work and people. Words and how to weave them. How we interact and why we treat each other the ways we do. How can I do better and be better.
On a typical Friday night I am
I am either working or home reading or watching the night crawl by.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am an introvert. This does not mean that I am anti-social. I am a high self monitor. I love being in and among people, but it also makes me nervous.
