My self-summary
Currently employed full time, but looking forward to retirement. Photography business is on the side at this time, but once I retire (not sure when that will be), I hope to pursue this passion full time. I enjoy being outside, rather than inside when the weather is nice. I am not a fan of Winter in the Mid-Atlantic region, but I am sure I would love it in Hawaii. Love music (listening/watching live performances) . Blessed with wonderful friends. I enjoy introducing friends to other friends, and sharing theatrical performances, movies, meals (with good wine) at all kinds of venues, musical entertainment and other adventures.

I would say more, but a gentleman mentioned that when men read profiles they only read the first couple of sentences and then what they read/see is 'blah, blah, blah, blah'. So I am done for now.
What I’m doing with my life
Building a freelance photography business. My clients are primarily in the Mid-Atlantic region, but I am willing to travel further for the right job. I am involved in volunteer projects throughout the year, along with lots of fun activities as well through my Parrot Head Club.
I’m really good at
Being a friend. Being loyal. Giving and receiving massages. (Hint, hint.) Making people comfortable and amusing my friends.
Photography. (At least that is what I have been told, although I have no formal training.) Perhaps you will have a chance to judge for yourself, as I have a website.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes. My sense of humor. Or the camera in my hands.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Authors: John Steinbeck, Agatha Christie, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Dan Brown, John LeCarre, Janet Evanovich, Stephen King, Nicholas Sparks, Tom Clancy, Nelson DeMille, J.R.R. Tolkien, Robert Parker, and so many more.

But, don't worry, I watch TV just like a 'normal' person.

TV shows: Jeopardy, the NCIS shows (all of them), Bones, Criminal Minds, CSI, Castle, The Mentalist, The Good Wife, Suits, etc. Wow, I really do need to get out more. Either that or find someone who likes to snuggle on the sofa and relax in the evenings.

Movies: Good Will Hunting, Braveheart, Casablanca, Kramer vs Kramer, The Color Purple, Madagascar, The Goodbye Girl, The Prince of Tides, My Fair Lady, Saving Private Ryan, Yentl, Ghost, Gone With The Wind, Finding Nemo, Pulp Fiction, Sea of Love, The Patriot, Courage Under Fire, Bull Durham, Driving Miss Daisy, The Lion King, My Cousin Vinny, FX, A Fish Called Wanda, Star Wars, The Harry Potter movies and of course, The Lord of the Rings, and so many more.

Music: Rock & Roll (60's & 70's especially), American Folk, Celtic, TropRock (Jimmy Buffett and many others), Jazz, Classical, and most everything in between.

Food: Italian, Asian (Chinese, Thai, Korean, Vietnamese, etc), American, Country French, Mexican, etc.
The six things I could never do without
There are the obvious things (air,water, etc), so I will skip those.

1. My Incredible Friends
2. A Camera
3. A Garden
4. Laughter
5. Music
6. And, of course...Love
I spend a lot of time thinking about
If soul mates really exist, will I find mine before time runs out?

What I hope to do in my retirement (whenever that might be).
Whether I could be a successful art gallery & photography studio owner near or in a beach community.

A dream vacation to New Zealand (and Australia, if time allowed).

Where I will retire (preferably somewhere warm most of the year and near water).

Photographic opportunities for income and my own personal pleasure.
On a typical Friday night I am
What is a 'typical Friday night'? One Friday might find me with friends at the beach. And the next Friday could fine me at home reading or watching TV. And, let us not forget playing on the computer.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I miss sharing (great sex, good conversations, and adventures) with someone special.
You should message me if
...You believe we have some commonalities. If you enjoy sharing your particular interests and hobbies with someone who wants to continue to learn each and every day. And, if you think you might like sharing some of mine.

If not, then, I wish you well.
