“Doubt thou the stars are fire;
Doubt that the sun doth move;
Doubt truth to be a liar;
But never doubt I love.” ~ William Shakespeare, Hamlet

"Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere.
They’re in each other all along." (Rumi)

(Just a quick important note; ....I realize we're all visual people when it comes to dating prospects but, .........Physical Chemistry, Serendipity, Kismet (fate) and timing are important facets in finding a compatible companion, I'm a believer that if you don't take a chance in meeting.... then you will never get the essential effect two people need to test the waters for true Mental, Physical and Somatic compatibility)....Bottom line, you have to be courageous to test whats out there. There will be times of no connection, but just think? When you take a chance there will be this one time when everything falls into place........Now having said that........

Important cliff notes about me (Resume upon request...;-)): I am a professional manager in the IT world. I'm also a life long artist, musician and writer. I've traveled the world playing music along with other adventures to 20 countries and still counting (not bragging, just sayin' I've lived an adventurous life). I've built successful large businesses and managed others. I know the value of hard work and the playtime that is needed to stay sane. I come from a close knit hard working family from the Eastern Shore of Maryland. My parents were married for over 68 years, who were truly life-long best friends and partners. They reared me to have a sense of spirituality, faith and self worth, to be honorable, honest and forthright, to use my God-Given talents to be prosperous and charitable.

You? Are genuine, honorable, loving and have a sense of adventure. You like to travel and have a sense of humor ( an important quality for healthy relationships). You are comfortable with your own sexuality and sensuality and you've never lost that youthful ability to "Rock n' Roll"......Yep, you heard me right......You haven't lost that youthful adventurous spirit ........

Fleetwood Mac said it just right (They're still rockin' after all these years so why don't we join em);

Sweet wonderful you,
You make me happy with the things you do,
Oh, can it be so,
This feeling follows me wherever I go.

I never did believe in miracles,
But I've a feeling it's time to try.
I never did believe in the ways of magic,
But I'm beginning to wonder why.

I never did believe in miracles,
But I've a feeling it's time to try.
I never did believe in the ways of magic,
But I'm beginning to wonder why.

Don't, don't break the spell,
It would be different and you know it will,

You, you make loving fun,
And I don't have to tell you but you're the only one.

You make loving fun It's all I want to do
You make loving fun It's all I want to do

You make loving fun"

So let's go have a glass of wine and howl a few notes at a full moon. Believe me it's like pro-active Yoga .

~~NOTE: I have been asked if the paintings in my profile are my work? YES they are.......And I do commission work if you want something just contact me....
What I’m doing with my life
I try to live passionately every day.....Working on painting various works of art that I show and sell.....I'm attempting to perfect my skill with French sauces.........French sauces are the base for great cooking............and attempt those hard to hold Tai Chi positions, ........That Crane thing is killing me .......! I wanted to be James Bond but I had to settle as a Well-Simmered Daniel Craig look-a-like !
I’m really good at
Writing, art, & music,.....My culinary skills, I love to cook. I play a mean guitar and I adore light-hearted brevity and good humor. Oh yeah, ...........I do me pretty well.

Maybe my life's motto might strike a synaptical chord within you: "A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, love well, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects." ; Robert Heinlin.
The first things people usually notice about me
My happy demeanor, fun-loving, outgoing Personality. My zest for living............People tell me I have great hands and I could have been a professional masseuse or Reflexologist.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books? Anything by Ken Follet, Ernest Hemingway, Herman Hesse, Sun Tzu's: The Art of War, Robert Heinlein; The Song of Lazarus Long, Any great writer who penned genius by suffering depression and alcoholism throughout their writing life while being haunted by the demons of their own creative genius..........

“No storyteller has ever been able to dream up anything as fantastically unlikely as what really does happen in real life in this mad Universe.”.........R. Heinlein

Music ? Euphoria, Shawn Colvin, Sarah McLaughlin, Trey Anastasio, Marc Cohn, Andrea Bocelli.......... A great Springsteen or Dave Matthews concert, it don't get any better than that!

Movies? Casablanca, of course, ......I like all the great action adventures from Star Wars to Indiana Jones, Lawrence of Arabia, old Humphrey Bogart and Errol Flynn movies .........I'm totally enthralled with Game of Thrones, Love it!! I was a Euro -knight in a another life, hacking at windmills and rescuing damsels in distress...........seriously!!!. Deadwood, Hell on Wheels, love the writing and the expansive scenery.......Lord of the Rings of which I read the trilogies before they became ultra-cool. (I find it humorous how such Biblic personifications reach so many people once mirrored into a totally nother' overly commercialized stylized realm.)
Six things I could never do without
A great kiss, A great Martini, A great bottle of wine, My moral compass, a good flashlight, a musical instrument, and a Swiss Army Knife..........Oops was the 6 or 7? Oh darn, there I go breaking the rules again...........;-)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I can leave this world a better place than whence I came! I've raised 2 wonderful step-daughters to masters and doctorates degrees, built and managed successful businesses, traveled the globe........ so what to conquer next is on my mind .............How about a little help with what mountain to climb next eh prospective companion? ....................
On a typical Friday night I am
Out on some adventure, kibbitzing with friends or acquaintances........Cooking something savory, having dinner out, enjoying good music or a movie,......Searching for the perfect Martini ............
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once dropped a Greatful Dead T-shirt with my signature, a cassette tape of the GD and my band's music accompanied by a private written note out of a Danish Sikorsky Helicopter right onto the North Pole .........Maybe someday aliens will find, read and listen to the tape in bewilderment and understand what it is to Rock n' Roll..........
You should message me if
You like feisty conversation and I have piqued your interest. Send me a note, I won't bite............Le Dolce Viva, Amore Mio!!!
