My self-summary
Earnest, inquiring, honest, appreciates humor, loves engaging conversation.
What I’m doing with my life
Raising a wonderful son, which makes me happier than anything I've ever done. Enjoying the companionship of dear and loyal friends. Trying to learn and often relearn, what's really important in life.
I’m really good at
Building things, including friendships, trust, durable relationships, empathy and ideally a world of mutual respect and tolerance. In addition to actual physical structures.
I enjoy leaving things in better shape than I found them and have strong feelings regarding stewardship.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'd have to say that people usually notice that I love to talk. I'm especially prone to asking lots of questions. Even in passing I like to know what people think, how they arrived at their conclusions and how they choose to express them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Not to be negative but it would be easier to list what I'm not particularly drawn to-science fiction and biography are amoung my least favorite literary genres. I've never been a huge movie fan, much preferring to read, but in recent years I've started to enjoy simple, feel good movies. Anything but horror and cheap shot humor really. TV shows with interesting interpersonal dynamics-House, Lie to Me, NCIS. I confess to enjoying a little Country music along with Melissa Etheridge, Dido, Sara Barielles... And all kinds of food, as long as I'm not cooking it. Trust me.
The six things I could never do without
There's my son and then there's everything else.
Friends and family
My home
My iPhone
My abiding gratitude for all that I've been given and all that is still possible.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How serious and complex the problems facing us today are. Wondering if we've done enough to leave the world in a better place than we found it. And more importantly have we left our young people with more than just youthful optimism to meet our future challenges.
On a typical Friday night I am
Proudly enjoying my sons swim meets.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The very definition of private would suggest that this would not be the place, however, I'm a fairly open book to genuine inquirer.
You should message me if
You have any inclination to do so. I enjoy meeting new people. Thank you for your time.
