I am a Renaissance man. (ok, laugh now!) I'm just sayin' that both sides of my brain frequently work :)
When I have eggs in the morning I think they’re really just the delivery medium for Green Tabasco.... I’m sensitive and compassionate; technical and artistic. I always let people finish their sentences or thoughts. I then.... process and respond. I prefer to be concise, eloquence over stream of consciousness (this post aside), but really, both can work. My 21 year old son is a wonderful individual. It is/was great being a dad: baseball, piano, and reading to him every night till he was 15 (Life of Pi, LOTR, etc.) I’ve flown a helicopter, snorkeled Maui and white water rafted – and I want to do so much more cool stuff – but not alone! I’ve sang college opera to audiences of 1,000 people. I like to dance myself silly to funk or soul. I like to ride bicycles and off-road motorbikes. I want to KiteBoard someday. I’m an explorer of sorts. Is there something you’d like to explore with a partner?
music: guitar, singing, percussion, composition.
appreciating beauty, form, design
fine woodworking - furniture.
I like to smile and laugh.
don't read often now... tho I did finish the copy of Be Here Now that my son just gave me. tripy ;-)
have done a lot of books on tape during commuting. Bernard Cornwell - probably at least 20 titles?; Philip Roth; Ruth Rendell; James Mitchner; Elmore Leanord, even Dean Koontz for a little suspense...
Musically speaking, my old favs are still good medicine... PG, Sting, Steely Dan/D. Fagen, Shawn Colvin. Newer Favs: Kurt Elling, Robben Ford, Roy Hargrove, Civil Wars... LIVE music at Triple Door, Jazz Alley, the Olympia Ballroom, Washington Center, and I may try Neumos and Stonegate...Others?
used to watch a lot of movies... now I have a hard time finding time. Clint eastwood: Unforgiven, Million $ baby, Gran Torino
Kevin Spacey: American Beauty, K-pax
Mel Gibson: Braveheart, Patriot, the Beaver
Tom hanks: Pvt Ryan, Castaway, Charlie Wilson's war, Larry Crowne. (but poorly cast in the Dan Brown movies, IMHO)
misc: As good as it gets, Matrix, Contact, Clay pigeons, Shawshank Redemption. Always. Big Lewbowski.
food - just tryin to keep it lite. apples, veggis and lean meat. spice is good...
twinkies - not.
especially about travel and adventure!
