My self-summary
The common road may be the wise and reasonable choice for some. It has never held much appeal for me. If you have walked on the edge, and enjoy the perspective from the margins, we are more likely to be a good fit.

I have many and varied stories to tell. I'm looking for someone to enjoy spending time with, someone who can hold up his or her end of the conversation, and who has the time and inclination to build a friendship, and intimacy.

I'm an independent thinker with an artistic soul -- big heart and active mind, in equal measures. Pretty transparent, really.

If you are creative and passionate, a free thinker with a social conscience, I would like to hear from you.
What I’m doing with my life
working for social justice; exploring my creative instincts; loving those in my close circle deeply; finding the right balance between giving, and taking care of myself
I’m really good at
dancing to my own drumbeat, word play, finding humour in almost anything, observing with a critical eye, insight, empathy, supporting the people I care about, spotting integrity, remembering details
The first things people usually notice about me
my hair, style, posture, laugh, vocabulary, and my honesty...if i'm leaving the room, maybe they notice another of my assets
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
electric blues, Bogie n Bacall, hot peppers...
a little more specificly, though the theme is "eclectic":

SRV, Jeff Healy, Black Keys, Black Crowes, Aretha, Stevie Nicks, Joni Mitchell, Bonnie Raitt, Aerosmith, VH, BB King, Willie Nelson, Van Morrison, Duke Ellington, Santana, Joe Cocker, Bob Seger...

Hell or High Water, To Have and Have Not, The Usual Suspects, Unforgiven, All The President's Men, Georgia O'Keeffe, Basquiat...

ice cream, black licorice, noodle soup, big salads, fruit and cheese, crusty bread, pizza, good coffee, bold wines, smooth bourbon, salted dark chocolate and salted caramel

my taste for reading material is also eclectic
Six things I could never do without
1. beautiful images, designed and natural
2. intelligent men
3. intelligent women
4. intimacy
5. banter
6. learning

The order is irrelevant.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
doing the important things well; remarking on, but not sweating the details
On a typical Friday night I am
happy whatever I am doing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When my dog had knee surgery and he couldn't follow me upstairs for the night, I slept on the couch so he wouldn't be lonely.

I will still break my stride to step on a dried leaf, just to hear that crackling sound.

I can still make my teenage son blush with my ribald humour.

I have a soft spot for artists (is that a pun?).

Oh, and I'm 55. Pics are current. Not so private.
You should message me if
you really are creative, passionate, a free thinker with a social conscience. and you have a little edge -- i'm not talking about a razor.
The two of us
