My self-summary
Taking a sabbatical from dating toward a romantic relationship. Prefer connecting to form new friendships. Just want the pleasure of your company.
What I’m doing with my life
...the very best I can each day. Definitely will stick with "day" as my measure of progress. I haven't quite mastered this "living in the moment" thing, but at least I am mindful of it..once in a while.

Am in transition job wise. Delivering food part-time to pay the bills. Spend 2-3 hours each day enrolled in an online medical coding course. Hope to complete the course and take my certificate exam in June 2016. Then find work as a medical coder.

I am at the gym five days a week either lifting weights or lap swimming.

I meditate regularly at a Zen center in San Jose.
I’m really good at
losing my keys, forgetting people's names, knowing all the 2-letter words, and waking up minutes before my alarm.
The first things people usually notice about me
I would say my smile (slightly impish) emerging from my reddish/silverish goatee, and a certain gentlemanly reserve, cultivated from growing up in Montreal and Toronto.

By the way, the first is not the last.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Stanford Theater
Shark Tank

Life is Beautiful
Shall we Dance? (prefer Japanese version)
When Harry met Sally
Breakfast at Tiffany's
LOTR Trilogy
Anything by the Coen Bros, and Tarantino,

Hulu and Netflix (have no TV)
Six Feet Under (I worked in a mortuary for a year)
Downton Abbey
House of Cards

Bill Bryson and David Sedaris
John Irving
Malcolm Gladwell
Lately, I've been reserving online through my library, books you recommend in your profiles. I've read five so far, some quite quirky, but all great.

Loreena McKennitt, Enya, Deva Premal, Slavic choral music
Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Don McClean, Gordon Lightfoot, Alison Krauss, Johnny Cash, Love Jazz in small venues, Pink Martini, Diana Krall, Chopin, Mozart, Sharon Isbin

Omnivore (no dilemma).
The six things I could never do without
You can pick the six you like the most:
Touch (anything skin to skin)
My children
My parents (and eventually my memory of them)
Watching ice hockey live or listening to it on the radio
My iPhone
Strong coffee
Eye contact
Long walks
Pouring rain, storms (perhaps a casualty of climate change)
Silence, meditation
Loreena McKennitt's voice and melodies
I spend a lot of time thinking about
why many women on this site shy away from confessing anything interesting on the profile question "The most private thing I'm willing to admit" but are not inhibited about revealing the most intimate details of their lives on their OKC questions. Well, thank you, just the same.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I was abducted by aliens when I was 12, returned in a few months, enough time to prepare for my Bar Mitzvah.

Alright, I sorta made that up...I was only abducted for a few days
You should message me if
you think there is the basis of a friendship.
