My self-summary
I'm a long, lean, sweet nerd who is passionate about sustainable agriculture, good architecture, and trying to leave the world a little bit better. I want to believe in God. Peace and beauty help me do so; my work with people does not.

I prize authenticity and find self-deprecating, sarcastic humor hilarious.

Full Disclosure: I don't like the beach. This is un-American, I know, that's why I'm telling you now. Too much sun, sand, water, biting things (since you asked).
Let's go to the mountains! Or an ancient city. Any garden, any where; a quiet historic hotel; a vacation where we are working/learning/volunteering. Let's sit home and read or go to the symphony, a festival, a class. Hey, we could turn the compost!
What I’m doing with my life
I have just quit my soul-sucking job and I'm really not quite old or rich enough to retire. So I'm doing temp assignments while the dust settles, trying to figure out the next right thing.
I’m really good at
Appreciation: of kindness, excellence, scholarship, craftsmanship. I'd rather have had an operatic voice but we don't get to choose these things, you know? So I'm a big fan of operatic voices. And some of the other flashy talents.
The first things people usually notice about me
Tall? (It's true, I'm tall). Intense. Paying close attention.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I prefer live performances! Probably haven't seen your favorite movie and have limited interest in television, cards, video/board games. Want to hear a rant?

I have season tickets to the Symphony and a Broadway show series.

Food: strong flavors, ethnic restaurants, hot peppers. Grilled everything. Whatever we made together--I like to cook. When I drink, which is usually with a meal, it's dark beer or red wine. Although if you serve single malt Scotch, I could change my habits.

Favorite books: A Pattern Language, Permaculture Manual, The Inward Garden, The Righteous Mind, Back to the Rough Ground, Old Path White Clouds, Four Arguments for Elimination of Television, On Combat.
The six things I could never do without
Music, books, trees, a garden, coffee, friends and family.
YOU to talk to and well, let's wait and see.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where to put more flowers, how to thwart the squirrels, what's for supper. And mightn't we all be a little more patient and civilized if we took up the custom of afternoon tea?
On a typical Friday night I am
At a show or concert if there is one, hanging out with a good book, crashing to bed early if it's been a hectic week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Now some people would say I already said too much.
You should message me if
You are tall, kind, and reflective. You laugh to keep from crying about the mess we've made of everything but you're still trying to make a difference. You could sorta roll with it and laugh about it if your lady got worked up and expressed a vehement position, perhaps made a fool of herself doing so. Not every day, you know. Not even every week! But every now and then...
