My apologies for the rant. Sometimes I just can't contain my enthusiasm. (okay, most times.) Just say no to cynicism and/or apathy and please vote. Merci beaucoups.
Nov 5: smallDonald redux. My nephew texted me to jokingly ask if I was voting for Trump. My reply: "Trump-a-delic, baby!!! Make America Hallucinate Again." Tuesday can't arrive too soon.
"... to get full value of a joy you must have somebody to divide it with." ~Mark Twain~ You might find me star gazing at the planetarium, leafing through Bon Appetit for a dinner idea, biking down Park Ave, throwing a pot at the Genesee Center for the Arts, paddling my canoe in the Adirondacks, wine tasting in Hammondsport or flying kites at the beach. I relish creativity and curiosity, listening to wildly diverse types of music (thanks Mom), offbeat independent and foreign film, theater, dance, any flavor of artistic expression and, especially, exploring new places and cultures (maybe the deep south, the far-east or down under?). I'm seeking a joyful optimist to share stimulating conversation and knowing silence, new experiences and daily chores, bawdy laughter and deep-felt tears. Someone who smiles easily, is secure in themselves, communicates their feelings and thoughts openly, can occasionally be spontaneous, values their adventurous nature and always, always embraces kindness... and me.
A quick comment on my OKC personality ratings; if I'm even the slightest of slivers less playful than the median.... well then, there's a whole lot more playing going on than I've observed. Maybe folks are way more fun at home? Maybe. Other than that, no quibbles.
I will find that special person who is wrong for me in just the right way.

One foot in front of the other.
ummm... my five senses. Oh wait, THINGS. Drat.
I do rather enjoy my camera, canoe, kites, hammock, spiffy 2nd hand policeman's bicycle, raincoat and camping gear... but I can do without any of that. I'm hardy that way. I'm afraid I can't do without Dr. Bronner's lavender soap or my tool bag though.
