My self-summary
I usually wear glasses, love live music, and dancin' my butt off. Blues, rock, jazz, funk. even some classical interests. summer festivals, DVDs, popcorn, movies, dining, grilling, nature, a little lousy golf, and occasional Frisbee or camping. camping at the HILTON is ok too!! am considerate, laid back, passionate and can fit into most social settings. Not a huge sports fan, but follow the Packers, Badger football and basketball, used to play volleyball. Parents are gone and I have no children or ex spouses to contend with. Still remain child friendly.

I am passionate, and curious
What I’m doing with my life
Starting to update my tiny condo. Enjoying the company of my brother and sis-in law, friends, and family. Finding enrichment in music, art, people, photography, nature, exercise, and friends.

This will be important to some, and helpful to their needs. I don't have a hugely successful career adorned with mega achievements. I am not working now but manage some fulfillment, humility, and success with a fixed disability income.

For the most part, I am a home body and get out a few days a week. I eat well but mostly my own cooking and at home, so I could use some "foodie" rehabilitation. I'm open to travel, but have been staying closer to Madison lately.
I’m really good at
Most seem to think I'm a good dancer when all I know is how to look good shaking my butt on a dance floor. I've never had a dance lesson and would enjoy a partner to learn more.

Personally I'm really great at being a helper and turning a three day job into two.

I'm also good at being satisfied with what I can achieve, and not bothered with what I can't.
The first things people usually notice about me
Damned if i know! I've never asked and I'm not inclined to start now. I may end up being very disappointed! Maybe it's that I wear glasses. OH! I have been told i have a nice smile recently, and more than once! Oh! And someone said they liked my inexpensive cologne. There!! That's it!! I'd rather find something authentic than some made up horse *5#@!!!!!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I beg your forgiveness to all you smart girls out there but i haven't been doing much casual book reading for awhile. once i get past the newspaper, the Pop Sci, and all there is entertaining to read on the internet, i don't take the time to pick up a new book to read instead. movie interests will vary. "the color purple" and "a league of their own" and "raiders of the lost ark" are a few of my absolute faves but am really enjoying the more dynamic new "batman" movies. anything with action, suspense, love, adventure, deeply moving meaningful films like "the piano" or Will Smith's movie "seven pounds" blow my mind. music is best categorized best as "adult contemporary". anything like carlos santana, quincy jones, wynton marsalis, dave mathews, al jarreau, bruce hornsby, bb king, luther allison, kt tunstall, duffy, adelle, bonnie rait, los lonely boys, alicia keys, stevy ray vaugn, tony bennet, sting, blues traveler, john mayer, talking heads, evanesence, I hope you get the picture. and food, well, meat (beef, chicken, fish, pork), salads, vegetables, fruit, dairy......I'm a guy, I am easy to please, and admit I am food challenged. I cook basic stuff at home and not much of a "foodie". I need someone to spice this part of my life up a little!! any help out there?
Six things I could never do without
Of course there are those most necessary like #1.air, water, food, shelter. #2friends, family, work and play (i always put play last!!) of course #3. women (the world would stop turning if there were no women!!!!!)

Personally, love and affection, information and learning new tricks, Packers and Badger football and basketball, coffee, and curiosity.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Current city state country world, events, information, global warming, progressive politics, liberal views, justice and fairness for all, humor, pranks, my introduction and development to interests and continuing self awareness, new discoveries, curiosity, my ability to continue to develop emotionally and intellectually.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'd stay home more Friday nights if I had a good reason, but mostly I am out listening to live music and dancing. In an ideal world I would have a companion who may want to go out one weekend night and stay home one weekend night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ah! no! wellll!!! better not!! lets see.......! I've already admitted some of my favorite girly movies so...I'm sure I may have shed a tear during the movie "the color purple" and "a league of their own", and "Saving Private Ryan". There!! wayyyy toooo intimate for the internet but there you have it!!
You should message me if
You prefer someone stable and available, knowing no one is perfect. Enjoy holding hands. Teaching and learning, giving and taking. Appreciate daily warm embraces. Laughter and humor. Have curiosity and wonder about the world and enjoy a little exploration. Stay in touch with events and happenings. I didn't think I'd ever say this, but prefer that you be more on the "progressive" side of politics, or way less divisive.
The two of us
