My self-summary
This seems redundant - given the categories below. I'm polite, kind-hearted, a good listener, socially, politically, environmentally conscious, interested in almost everything, a voracious reader, animal lover - esp dogs - but I'd happily take on an elephant or rhinocerus if i had the chance (haha), spend alot of time helping friends, am reasonably well travelled and would like to do more, would like to play tennis again, love riding my bike, my best friend is a chihuahua, with my sister a close second, etc, ad inf.........
What I’m doing with my life
Living it, day by day, for now. I change the world in the microcosm, sign lots of liberal petitions and all environmental petitions, send $$$ when I can, continue to learn, resurrecting old friendships, and trying, as Jack Nicholson said to Helen Hunt, to be a better man.
I’m really good at
Carpentry & Kissing, listening, communicating, writing, Art, apple pie.......... souffle, chicken soup, chocolate mousse, etc, etc....
The first things people usually notice about me
No idea
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
History, Biography (I'm almost fictioned out), Coen Bros, Ridley Scott, Bergman, Fellini, foreign films, occasional theater, all kinds of music - except rap, hip hop, new country. Mostly classical and world beat. Food: omnivorous.
Six things I could never do without
A hot shower, Manhattans (one a week), fruit, dogs, my sister, Bach, Muddy Waters, Arthur Grumiaux, Cesaria Evora, Mercedes Sosa, Ali Farka Toure' berry pie, Billy Holiday, The Wilson river, Fleetwood Mac, The Columbia Gorge, Great writing & films, The Oregon Coast, Breaking Bad, QFC's strawberry shortcake, Mountains, the fading memory of luscious & lascivious kisses, animals, kindness & generosity, the also fading memory of making love with someone I'm really turned on about, affection & companionship - six - really, just 6?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
too much to list - politics, environment, the economy - not so much Paris, or Brangelina......
On a typical Friday night I am
I can't remember that far back............
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Not much - online.
You should message me if
If any of this sounds compatible, if you have a smart & witty sense of humor, if you're left-leaning, like small dogs, if you can ride a bike, swing a tennis racquet, dive into cold, clear water on a hot day, ski (moderately) know good writing when you read it, think Antonia's Line is in the "ten best", like touching, are affectionate, are beyond arrogance & narcissism, if you're not juggling 6-8 people at once, can spell - and know the difference between there/they're & their, then & than, your & you're, and can spell Chihuahua.
