My self-summary
"I worry. I hope. I wish." -- Atul Gawande

i worry that I might pass right by the door to my destiny.

I hope I've lived long enough to know the difference between a sincere person and a poser. I'm tech-savvy, tolerant, and truly hope to live another hundred years, as long as I'm mobile, alert, and capable of wiping my own butt.

I wish to meet an independent woman who likes to enjoy life! I'm interested in meeting a lady with a big heart, an easy way and a firm will - a fellow searcher on the shore - a partner, willing and able to charm and be charmed - zing and be zinged.

She can be my Ring Ding if I can be her Devil Dog.

I deeply appreciate being appreciated by a woman. I love reciprocal reciprocity - a volley of sentiments, in call and response, ascending to the heights together in rhythm and time.

My life has been a large canvas with many brushstrokes of varied colors - some primary - some pastel - all made brighter by the shading of deep blue-greys like rainy days.

Let me tell you a story.
Or two.
But never fear, I have a listening ear.
Or two.

Whimsy, creativity and intelligence are all important to me. I'm somewhat of a romantic. I do pay attention.
I grew up in NYC, went to school in Texas and have lived in Colorado almost twenty-five years. In short, I'm watching the river flow.
I'd like to share that with someone nice.
What I’m doing with my life
You want the bare facts? Why go getting all real on me now?!
Briefly, then - I'm very fired up about promoting two different technology offerings that I'm convinced will make a big difference for the greater good.
On the big canvass I'm working down the home stretch, still focused on gathering the brass rings as the carousel of life spins round and round. Growing and dreaming while keeping my eyes on the prize. As the years pass, I grow closer to the young idealist I started out as, even though there's been some estrangement between he and I.
My narrative follows a winding arc. I've always been an independent spirit. Bit nostalgic and yet very pleased with the growth and progress represented by today's young'uns. Sometimes old ideas become new again, like orphan socks at a family reunion.
Wait! You're an Argyle?
Me too!
I’m really good at
Word-smithing. Finding the unexpected levity in quiet moments, on the downbeat Engaging with people. Listening....... asking questions - and listening. Love a good conversation! Oh, and tenderness! I'm a lover. Not a fighter. But I'm pretty spunky.

Six things I could never do without
Other than the basic requirements to sustain life I can do without all "things". Except maybe free range broadband internet. My special purpose. And this chair.
The phone books are here!
Music, laughter, inspiration, a hot shower on a cold day, love and happiness are my half dozen basic requirements.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The quality of mercy.
Apparently (according to Shakespeare) ,unlike Greek yogurt, it's not strained.
On a typical Friday night I am
Wondering when or if I'm ever going to have a "typical Friday night".
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm intimidated by escalators.
You should message me if
You're interested and willing to take "baby steps" on the road to find out.
The two of us
