My self-summary
When grocery shopping I always add a buck to the local food bank at the check out register. I am clean. I am polite. I try to think good thoughts. I believe in karma and I believe in fate. I know that some of us are capable of creating a powerful positive energy and can direct that energy. I believe we are unique biologic individuals, all composed of complex biomagnetic electrical systems generating at different cycles, different strengths. People fascinate me. Dark matter fascinates me. Everything in nature that defies possibility fascinates me. Read too much. Books, newspapers, magazines, online articles, everything. I am always seeking information. What do I want to know? Everything.
What I’m doing with my life
Besides serving my cat, I fill my hours with books, newspapers, TV and film. Oh. I already mentioned that. I also work. My wonderful partner and I write books. It is always challenging and sometimes rewarding. You'd be surprised at how many authors aren't. Oh okay. Shakespeare may have written his own plays...or Lord DeVere. I don't know. What I am doing with my life is trying to live every day well, though it is shocking how quickly our lives pass. While here, I want to make a difference.
I’m really good at
You'd be surprised. Really. No. Seriously. Necessity is the mother of invention, and also the mother of learning how to do an amazing number of things. My desire to excel at whatever I do has left me multi-faceted. It's sort of crazy. But I was there, so...
I can help people. Change the oil filter in your '66 Dodge. Teach. Lead. Train. Give comfort. Demolish your house. Write a letter to your parole officer. Choose a good piece of meat. Slice the turkey at Thanksgiving. Mix a nice drink. Sing Happy Birthday. Run a religious service. Actively Listen.
If "I'm really good at" too many things, is that's bad? Or just enough to go on?
The first things people usually notice about me
Uh...my glasses? They're cool. The lenses darken when I go outside. Other than being an incredibly good-looking old guy, there isn't much about me that anyone would notice. Oh. I look like either a shrink, a jazz musician, or a narc, depending upon your attitude---and the time of day. People often think I look like a cross between the actor Richard Dreyfuss (old), the comedian George Carlin (dead), and their psychiatrist (still charging his usual fee).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
If I admit that my favorite work of fiction is The Bible, what's your reaction? Oh, okay. Don't get all snitty. Films first---Contemporary Directors whose work I admire are Martin Scorcese, Ridley Scott, Kathryn Bigelow, James Cameron, and Quentin Tarantino. There are others, but their names elude me. Some favorite fiction writers are Robert B. Parker, Harlan Coben, Michael Connolly, Lee Child, Tom Clancy, John Grisham, Isaac Bashevis Singer, and Paul Auster. I also enjoy Alice Munro, Toni Morrison, Anne Padgett, Louise Erdrich, and others. Nonfiction---Doris Kearns Goodwin's Team of Rivals, John Adams by David McCullough. His other amazing books of course. On TV watch Homeland, Curb Your Enthusiasm, the news, films and documentaries. Just went to the movies and saw Hitchcock with Anthony Hopkins. Love music. Classical, Ragtime, Mellow Jazz, Sinatra, Phoebe Snow, Tom Waits, Gregorian Chants, some pop and blues, soft rock and folk. Especially am drawn to cellos violas violins...warmth of the strings, their ability to convey passion. A wide range of tastes in food, but try to keep diet basic---chicken turkey seafood, some beef, dark greens, lots of broccoli, lots of fruit, rice, yam, potato. Simple.
Six things I could never do without
Love, Cat, Coffee, Touch, Friendship, a clear night Sky filled with stars. That's six. Oxygen, Shelter, Heat, Clothing, Food and Water are hardly negotiable. That's another six. Did I mention sex? Electric power? Cat food? Can opener? Litter? Gas for the car? Car? Money? Health? Faith in a Higher Transcendent Power? Just checking. Are we past six things I could never do without yet? Really?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whatever I'm working on at the moment. It usually dominates my thoughts. Often working on multiple things, so have many diverse thoughts. Other thoughts inevitably come round to the isolation of life. Meeting someone. How likely is that? Entanglement? Have better luck trying to pick a woman up at the grocery store than connecting here.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sitting alone with my cat watching TV and reading, trying not to fall asleep too early (before 10 p.m.). Is that pathetic? Yes. It is. Who cares? It's not like I'm bothering anyone.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Were I to truly admit something private, it would no longer be private.
But I am willing to share private thoughts in the appropriate forum. Privately.
You should message me if
You want to meet a straight old guy---65 is the new 50---whose closest relationship is with his cat. You like cats, right? Just checking. Not particularly interested in stunning younger women. I am not a sugar daddy. I am not a daddy substitute. (Oh okay. Maybe I am.) And even though I give every indication of being so, I am not a therapist. Not certified anyway. It always amazes me how many really terrific women present themselves on these sites. Or am I naive? May each find the person of their dreams. "There's a cover for every pot."
The two of us
