My self-summary
Hi, it's your lucky night! I AM Updated! (August 2017).

July: ok, I am as honest here as is possible: I know myself well enough to know that I cycle with this site, I cycle with wanting to date again, and I am ok with that. I am confident in the intuition/belief of multi-lives, and it's pretty clear to me no perfect soul mate exists. But, knowing me, knowing my cycles, I will be back on OKCupid and may send you an email of interest. Some women will like me, some women will love me, but be frustrated or unaccepting of my incongruous styles. Most who express interest will probably go elsewhere IF they are demanding from life a long term, live-in relationship. I need my space.

(April 2017) My experience here - (this is my experience. I am NOT generalizing about women) - is that some women I write to here, do not have the common courtesy to reply - even if they are totally uninterested - with a "Thanks but no thanks." Hmmmmmm.....

They don't show basic respect to me. So you women who have examined Universal Compassion - I am no role model, but I work towards it- , can understand how I might be peeved at them. So, I am sad to report that in this day and age, as a gender you do NOT get special treatment! Prove yourself with your character just like men have to, and I will honor and respect and love you!

Second, I will say I am saddened by online dating, and what a chore it is to navigate profiles, hidden unstated needs/preferences/deal breakers. I just went out with a woman, we liked each other, but due to a tiny "dating style" difference that emerged right before the second date, mind you, the second date, she backed out.

(May 2017)I am intelligent, honest, compassionate, very passionate, and a Beautiful Mess. I am S. Crow's favorite mistake, and I am what I am, and I'm Popeye the sailor .

I am progressive politically, completely anti Trump, and anti-elitist 1% persons, organizations, lobbyists, Congresspersons and politicians.

I listen to Democracy Now, NPR, Politico, and progressive news links I find, for news.

I love humor of most kinds, eccentric, quirky and noir is ALL good. Favorite directors: Charles Kaufman, Tim Burton and David Lynch, although I sometimes wonder about Lynch....Favorite comedians: Maria Bamford, Louie C. K. Favorite local musician: Lafayette Gilchrist and the New Volcanoes.

About me: I largely love art: painting, drawing, mixed media. I mostly work from the inside out so to speak....I have a few images among my photos here.

I also love music, I love to sing : mostly rock from Beatles forward, but this includes alternative, grunge, etc. etc.

I sing and playkeyboards, guitar, and some harmonicas for home, friend, and open mike enjoyment, NOT performance.

I have been into harmonicas for 40 years, played professionally pt. With singer songwriters, Big Daddy Stallings band.

Before working as an artist, I played music in nursing homes for 11 years, was a community educator, and had a career in the publishing industry. Before that in insurance.
