My self-summary
I'm a nice guy and I don't finish last (only sometimes), funny, kind, a little sarcastic, curious, love to converse, explore new trails and restaurants or movies, hear great music, see great art, swim in the waves, read a book, play some guitar, read some poetry, run in the morning.

I've been away from the OKC for a few after a love life hiatus, but am back to see what kind of interesting, happy, smiling, pretty, intelligent women are out there. Talk some and see where it goes from there? I feel like you can tell from a conversation if you click with someone - there's a shared energy there, some indescribable something that revs you up when you talk to someone.

When you meet that person you can usually tell pretty quickly from their eyes and the conversation, if you are going to be pulled in or not. And we all want to be pulled in, don't we? By attraction, by desire and being desired, by the wonder of human touch. By the soft silence of two people sharing time together.
What I’m doing with my life
Always changing, always growing, learning, pushing myself to evolve, and also to have fun (while working and advancing myself). if there is one goal to attain it's to transcend judgement, for that is where love lies.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh, making someone feel good, running, playing guitar, writing, cleaning dishes, teaching something, learning, trying, laughing, and finding the comic angle to things.
The first things people usually notice about me
Tallness, and maybe my eyes, and smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This is a big list of things to describe. Books - I loved The Road Less Travelled, lots of Carl Jung (reading his auto-bio now), most of Milan Kundera, Kafka is insanely amazing, Erich Fromm, Camus, Alan Watts, Walt Whitman, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Wordsworth, Shakespeare (of course). the New Yorker magazine, Wallace Stevens poetry. Music - Tribe Called Quest, Miles Davis, Louis Armstrong, Zero 7, listening to a lot of early rap on sat radio, old old country (Carter Family, Hank Williams, Hank III, Jimmy Rodgers), Animal Collective, Toots and the Maytals, Jimmy Cliff, Marley, anything Ska, Dylan, Woody Guthrie, Nina Simone, Coltrane, Mile Davis, Perez Prado (MAMBO!), Smiths, Arcade Fire, H Nilsson, Nick Lowe, and more.

Movies - all of Fellini's movies, Scorcese, Coen Bros, Antonioni, Di Palma.

TV - Dexter, Sopranos, Deadwood. I am also fond of Leonard Nimoy. Or, have you ever listened to Selected Shorts?

Oh, and food too? Love that our Bay Area is so culinarily diverse, with great Indian food (from many regions), SUSHI is perhaps my favorite, but love good Mexican food, Thai and Vietnamese chow, a good Jewish Deli, Italian food is great, and sometimes just a great hot dog. I also love brown rice, broccoli, tofu, Sirachi sauce, and dark chocolate. And of course, Red Red Wine.
Six things I could never do without
A guitar, books (physical or digital), poetry, running, family, the beauty of a woman, California, music such as Mozart or Louis Armstrong or Coltrane, humor and laughter, the mountains and the beach.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The nature of beauty, and the beauty of nature. Why nostalgia and Facebook seem to be like drugs to some. How the mind works. Why religion and science for some people seem to be binary opposites, when they don't need to be. Language and how to communicate, and how hard it is to say exactly what you mean - by the time you say it, it's already been changed. How to find that state of grace that children seem to have, that effortless movement or gesture or laughter that is done instinctively, without thought.
You should message me if
You would like to say hi and talk a little.
