My self-summary
You are more interested in being buddies first and lovers second. I'm a sculptor and graphic artist. I respect pioneers, explorers, cultivators. I admire anyone who uses their hands and uses practical knowledge,

I believe in doing what you can, while you can, as long as you can.

I am unusually patient but what hasn't killed me yet has made me observe the world more.

I am wry, romantic, and enigmatic.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in development and public affairs. I've been kind of an administrative journeyman and have enjoyed working in environments that require wearing many hats. This has meant working for small companies over the years, but currently I work in higher education, which I enjoy.

I'd like to find fellow local artists, musicians and/or writers for friendship. I get along well with just about anyone who understands that art is a serious discipline.

I was in a long-term relationship for many years but am currently single and ok with it though it's nice to enjoy events with a companion once in a while.
I’m really good at
Observing life and being fairly adaptable. I value anything I can learn from my experiences, no matter how trivial.

I appreciate quirky people. If you can make me laugh, you're gold. If you're reasonably confident and curious, I'll probably like you.
The first things people usually notice about me
Who knows? You'll have to tell me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The last book which blew me away was "Guns, Germs and Steel" by Jared Diamond. It explains the history of humanity in 500 pages and manages to stay plausible and coherent. I'm a bit of a history, geography and world culture nut due to my dad's collection of National Geographics.

I like the Marvel movies and enjoyed Dr. Strange. I like science, history and art documentaries. Reading up on art history is also a hobby.
The six things I could never do without
That drunken librarian who won't shut up known as the Internet. A sense of irony. A sense of humor. Faith in the idea that life is made up of chapters. Genuinely warm, sane people. Good light, plants and animals. I guess that's more than six but hey.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How much I enjoy four real seasons in New England. That people can get through difficult times and still maintain a sense of humor keep fighting for the good stuff. That life is full of surprises and some of them are good.
On a typical Friday night I am
Errr. Doing laundry? Napping? Thinking about whether I feel like going out or not? If I do, it's usually to the corner pub where I'll probably see someone from the neighborhood. Otherwise I like quiet nights at home reading friends' blogs or just plain reading. I don't watch TV (but I'm not opposed to watching boxed sets of things) and I'll take in a movie once in a while. I get a lot of my pop-culture and zeitgest-y fixes from friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I'm probably funnier and more romantic than I have reason to be. That I believe friends hug, fight, hug some more, and teach each other something new about life,. That I love wild things, even if I know from experience you have to let them go before they bite you on the ass.
You should message me if
You appreciate the creative process. You like to think about the bigger picture. You're as lazy and procrastinate-prone as I am and slightly disturbed by it.
