My self-summary
Hello AND Thanks,

This being the part of this new, electronic introduction method, where we each describe ourselves in a manner to be attractive to someone out there, I`ll give it a try. I`m not a pathetic, whimpering sort of person. But even here I`ll ask for some understanding. For you see, I`m not a simple person either.

In the hope of gaining your interest, I could tell you about this or that part of me. But I have no idea who you are, so I don`t know what will impress you. So, this profile has to be different.

Maybe I should state some characteristics that have been with me most or all of my life. I`ll try not to make it to much of an historical bibliography. I mention this because I have ( ask
' why ' a lot ) in my life, and therefore feel compelled to answer why`s before they`re ask.

From a very early age I remember being complimented on my drawing. At 14 it was suggested that painting was the next logical step. At 14 I did my first acrylic on canvas. Been a serious painter ever since, in oil after two acrylics. Many years of no painting, but always on my mind.

I consider myself intelligent, in a lopsided way, considerate, thoughtful, and compassionate. I can be passionate as well. I think I have more of an ability to understand than to remember. I try to see more than one side of an issue. I have a large interest in political matters.

I prefer quiet times over rowdy ones. My friends have told me I have more of a ' C ' or ' D ' type of personality than an 'A ' or
' B ' type. Though I am of a Caucasian heritage, I enjoy the American Indian or Ancient Chinese beliefs over most others. I will hug a tree as I will hug the whole earth. Environmental problems are of a concern to me.

For the more twisted of you : " The slithy toves, Did gyre and gimbal in the wabe. "

Peace and Tranquility,
What I’m doing with my life
I`m staying happy and aware. Being happy to be retired, I spend my days reading, drawing, painting. Right now I`m building some stands to place my canvases on at shows.
I’m really good at
Hell, I don`t know. I`m good at diagnosing and fixing electro- mechanical systems. I`m good at realizing when something is wrong with someone I`m out with. I do paint fairly well. I learn well. I`m not good at this.
The first things people usually notice about me
I`m laughing a lot. I see and make up unusual juxtapositions of things and situations, that I find humorous. I say silly things to people I don`t know, which gets them to smile and laugh. It`s fun. As expected, I enjoy having fun.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books : I am busy, throughout my life, trying to educate myself, mainly through reading. So I don`t spend much time on novels.
Movies : the actresses and actors, and the story line make the difference. Comedies, dramas and documentaries are what I watch.
Music : Not elevator or head banging stuff. I don`t need to break my heart listening to music. I`ve recently found some Eastern Meditation type that is wonderful. I grew up with, and still enjoy, Chamber Music and older Rock n` Roll. I enjoy other types also.
Food : Not McDonald`s. I try to eat somewhat healthily, less and less meat.
The six things I could never do without
Coffee, Love, Laughter, Mental Adventure, My Reading Glasses, One or Two Fun People, and paints; makes seven.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why things are, and what the hell I`m doing. How can I do something of more importance. How can I help the elephants, apes, and other animals and plants that man is destroying.
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading, watching an old movie, or MSNBC, or an environmental/ animal show. Can`t do the bar scene alone. I need you to go out with and have some fun.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Nothing, it would`nt be very private would it ? People who know me, realize I don`t keep many secrets. I`m to damned innocent and honest to live a lie.
You should message me if
Please message me if : you like to laugh, if you can be serious about more than soap- opera stuff, if your intelligent enough to be compassionate, if ' love ' means more to you than a quickie or a four letter word, and if I can trust you.
