My self-summary
Welcome to my summary page! By now you have probably looked through dozens of profiles saying the same earnest and hopeful things, and are starting wonder whether there's anything good on TV or if popcorn or chips would be a better snack. I mean, so many nice people, but none seems to stand out unless he is a wacko. Okay, I may be a little different from most guys, but I'm not really a wacko--just quirky! In an endearing way, too, I assure you.

I consider life an adventure whether it be major excursion or a simple interaction in an elevator--there are always opportunities to make connections with people and learn about life. I especially like outdoor explorations including travel, but sometimes exploring the personality of someone interesting in an intense conversation can be just as exciting and fulfilling.
What I’m doing with my life
I feel at a transition point. I'd like the next half century to be as productive and growth-filled as my life so far. I've been divorced for a few years after almost 20 years of marriage and am on good terms with my ex, and have two older teenage daughters who have become independent and graceful women. I have had some easy-going and some intense relationships, but that right fit is mighty elusive. Having a relationship where she and I feel at home is a goal.

I love my work in healing, but seek to make a bigger splash and look forward to discovering some breakthroughs which allow us to better understand life and make people healthier and able to lead more fulfilling lives.

I do wish to explore more of the world, even locally, as I moved to this area in March, 2011.

I've been playing ultimate frisbee for exercise and fun for a couple years after having been a regular player in school years ago. It's great fun to run around tossing and catching and scoring with some great people for a few hours.

I am working on being a more reliable and supportive friend and family member to the people with whom I am close as I consider this perhaps my most important calling.

I do seek a deeper spiritual understanding but remain perplexed in many ways.
I’m really good at
being humble. Yes, I'm especially good at that.

The six things I could never do without

Some of the six seem almost redundant, but they are not. Why six, I wonder? Love is important to me in all three traditional senses. Apparently I can do without the one on one deep physical/emotional love for indefinite periods of time, but the idea of not experiencing it again seems intolerable. Platonic deep friendships as well as spiritual fellowship and the closeness of family are heartily important to my existence.

I am a sensual person. Music moves me. I can't imagine it not playing some role in my life every day. I love the aching gorgeousness of a well executed and composed piece of music. I am enthralled at a simple yet brilliantly catchy riff. A clever lyric can change the way I see the world. An energetic rhythm can lift me to my feet in dance or throw me to the wall with its power.

I love all kinds of beauty and experience it in things simple and complex. Not just visual beauty either, but the intoxication of a flower's scent or a nice perfume, the close-your-eyes-and-sigh from a delicious food, the feel of a warm soft fabric fresh from the dryer, are all critically important to my quality of life.

Pleasure. The chance to feel good. Nothing complicated or deep here. Just the way our bodies have been designed to feel good. Very good. Almost can't stand it good sometimes.

Joy, now that's a deeper thing to me than pleasure. It's more a deep-seated sense of well-being, that life is good. I don't always have a full awareness of it, but it makes life worthwhile.

I feel like I'm babbling here. I am trying to get past the mundane but it's hard to express myself in ways that don't sound trite. I may need to come back to this one.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I really didn't want to share this, but I trust you.

Under my clothes I am completely naked.

Please don't tell anyone! Shhhhhhh.
You should message me if
you are awake...or if you are dreaming.
