My self-summary
Out of nothingness, I am. So, what am I humanly being. This will not be about who you think I am. Many people are looking to fulfill a "fantasy"...a lie that excites you. I, like every human on the planet, am a multi-dimensional being. If you expect me to conform to a "media image", a long gone teenage crush or the social gossip people tend to believe as fact, you will be disappointed. I am, first and foremost, a thinker. The wonder of living to this age is in appreciating how one's perspective becomes wider and clearer. Looking back on my life, I realize the most damaging "lies" were ones I told myself. Like the "Knight in Rusty Armor", I have my flaws. I crave companionship, yet, at times, I am reclusive...however, will take time to share a new thought or experience with a friend...and we both grow. Life, for me, is an open book. Everything and everyone has something to teach us...revelation is a two way street. Too often we sleep-walk through life. Expressing myself through writing has been a lifelong venture. I love to sing, write songs, do massage therapy, learn guitar, facilitate groups, share life experiences, listen...to you, life and even the silence. We are infinite. We are here to learn...period. My main concern about relationship is: "Can you manage your passions and not allow them to stampede and trample the aspirations of another? Yes, passion is vital, but if unrestrained, it is the clichéd "Bull in a china shop". Peace.
What I’m doing with my life
A retired Baltimore City Probation Agent, now Group Facilitating (mainly anger management groups) ; enjoying my renovated home; working-out at YMCA; singing karaoke; about to re-perform in "Jesus Christ Superstar" (5th year doing it...locally); writing; getting to know obscured facts; being unconventional; being a member of Community Exchange by doing massage and, most recently, taking guitar lessons and doing lots of karaoke. I see myself as correcting lies told to me by others and myself. We've all done it. Honesty begins with self. It's called "integrity". Performed in the in the Pa. Playhouse stage production of "To Kill A Mockingbird" in Bethlehem in 2014. Really stretched my comfort zone; 9 performances; I loved it!! Life keeps happening. Just discovered "Meet-Ups". Great idea for hooking-up with people who have similar interests. Look it up in your area.
I’m really good at
Reading between the lines. Descending into the "rabbit hole" with Alice and imagining the infinite possibilities of existence...being a thinker. Listening and actually hearing. Not being "that person" the people who stereotype expect. Eliminating baggage (spiritual & physical). Seeing through people. Just about anything I request God force to enable me to do. Being creative; finding new ways to do the same thing. Extracting the positive from adversity.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I exist.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Empire of Illusion,Eckhart Tolle (A New Earth), Carlos Castaneda, Aldous Huxley, M. Scott Peck, Edward Albee, James Baldwin, Bhagavad Gita,Tao Te Ching, The Bible, Crack In The Cosmic Egg, Knight In Rusty Armor, Empire of Illusion (did I say this twice?)..What The Bleep Do We Know, Pedagogy of the Oppressed.
The six things I could never do without
Reliance on a Higher Power,self-awareness/acceptance, water, reflection, imagination and humor.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Having spent my life doing things that, in the long run, were meaningless. And making this time, these moments, "now" much more substantive, intense, impactful. Have you ever signed-off from a site, tried to return and seen this notice: "Sorry but your time on this session has ended." We face that reality everyday...with our lives and loves. And so, we search for Ms. or Mr. Right. The question is...is our own internal world right enough to share with someone else? So, we're here, taking the leap of faith. If you are here, you're a "believer" like it or not. We're all in the same foxhole. So, I guess I'm thinking about "you", whoever you are, hoping I'm ready and able to receive what you're ready to give...and vice versa. As the song goes..."Will I find my love today..."
On a typical Friday night I am
At YMCA and/or at a friend's or karaoke
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
It wasn't me! I'm a Jersey guy.
You should message me if
You like exploring ideas & places, being spontaneous and can live outside the "box".
