My self-summary
OK, points to you if you have any idea of what my screen name relates to. No harm/no foul if not!

I am a book author by trade... an inveterate wanderer when circumstances allow... and the father of am absolutely grand 18 year old son. He's off to college in 9 short months, and I am enjoying the time left. Then... time to relocate coastward.
What I’m doing with my life
I think I already gave this away... but I try to spread the word about the importance of science, and especially the "exploration imperative"... through books. It's great fun.

I also work out 7... um, 5; ok, 4 days a week, eat well (mostly) and love to spend time with my kid. The rest of my time is spent in contemplation with fingers hovering over a well-worn keyboard, or trying something new.
I’m really good at
Listening, befriending, and other things that should get brownie points somewhere before my appearance before St. Peter... or that other guy.
The first things people usually notice about me
Though I am shy by nature, people generally find me outgoing and
easy to talk to. Maybe you will be able to tell me why...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Recent reads: Arguably Essays (Christopher Hitchens), Patient Zero (Jonathan Maberry), The Journal of Mariner 4 (NASA...)

Music: Not terribly savvy with things composed after 1939, but willling to learn... Mahler, Stravinsky, Tchaikovsky, and Italian opera are favorites. Love ballet as well. But I can still fix a car or garbage disposal!
The six things I could never do without
Coffee, electricity, shoes, books and reading glasses, binary, Moorish Revival and, I hope, you.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
That I must be a real oddball as the only person on here without a picture on a zipline...
On a typical Friday night I am
Writing, though I am trying to branch out in my social life. It's hard because I love what I do!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I absolutely love Bugs Bunny cartoons!
You should message me if
You are looking for a slow starting, long lasting relationship.

Not that the question comes up often, but not into "encounters"; no judgement but if that's what you seek, I'm not your guy.

Otherwise, hope to hear from you soon!
