My self-summary
From Guam to Sydney, Paris, San Francisco, Warsaw, and now Brooklyn, and with a tip of the hat to the Grateful Dead, what a long, strange, and completely amazing trip it's been. I'm a would-be classical guitarist and poet of sorts, father to two grown, creative kids, and I've made some great and lifelong friends. I've done and seen so much I could retire on my memories. But that's not me, 'cause the future is filled with limitless possibilities, and I like making memories, not living in them.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in my field of finance, and spend my leisure time playing music and reading mostly, and getting physically strong. I swim and bike and run (triathlons), and when in the mountains, XC skiing. I like to travel, and will do more as the professional part of my life winds down.
I’m really good at
Playing classical guitar (after I've been practicing)
Music and dancing - have been studying Argentinian Tango, both the dance and the music
Staying physically fit
The occasional poem works, but my skills as a writer are minimal
The first things people usually notice about me
Hair usually,that and my being fit for my age i'd guess, but I really don't know for sure - I can talk to just about anyone - love to hear about people's stories and experience, and I've been told I'm a great listener and have good insights, that I don't impose my opinions...and at parties, that I'm a great dancer.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Too hard to list here - just finished "Freedom" (which I loved), the works of Raymond Carver, and an infinite number of both classical and modern works. I'm about to launch into Bruce Chatwin's "In Patagonia" and Nelson DeMille's "The Lion's Game".
The six things I could never do without
Living my core values, my guitar at my side, my bike to ride, my health, and the happiness of myself and my friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
While I spend much of my time counting my blessings, and reflecting on the happiness I derive from my pursuits, I also have concerns about our society. I think about the changing economic and social situation, mostly in the USA, but also beyond, in particular I find the accelerated deterioration of any viable social safety net, coupled with the longterm affects of the economic downturn, and the physical dislocation of the nuclear family, will cause a major shift is how current and future communities form. We will see an increase in families of choice, people, both single and in partnerships, who will group together to pool resources and provide interdependence and support.
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading or out to hear music, sometimes with a stop over at my local Irish pub to have a pint and connect with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Intimacy builds as trust develops, so let's first see where we are and go from there.
You should message me if
You are looking to share your enjoyment of music, dancing, staying fit, and deep intimacy, then let me know and we'll see if the chemistry is right...
