I like using my hands and my body. I like to swim. I like to make men laugh and feel good.
I appreciate the sensuality of the material world but I realize that completion does not exist in and of the material world, but that plus something else. (And if I knew what that something else was, well I'd be a fucking genius, wouldn't I?)
I think the world here and now is an insane place to be in, but I believe you have to do 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.
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 also a good listener and I like meeting new people, though I generally dislike going to gay bars mainly because of the dynamic I often encounter there. Having said that it's not totally anathema to me. I'd rather hang out at my neighborhood pub, which isn't gay, although everyone there knows I am, so it's all good. I grew up near San Francisco and visit friends in New York from time to time, so as far as being around other gay people it's nice but not necessary.
I appreciate quirky people. If you can make me laugh, you're gold. If you're reasonably confident about yourself but are curious and willing to investigate stuff you don't know, I'll probably like you.
Often I'll go somewhere and will either blend in, or get looked at for reasons not entirely clear to me. I'm sometimes mistaken for other people, which is interesting.
I loved Contact with Jodie Foster. Even though I'm an artist I like science and history documentaries. Reading up on art history is also a hobby.
