My self-summary
LIKES CANNOT BE SEEN. You can like me---or you can hate me and my circus animals, but I am blind to LIKES and dislikes all, so there's no point to mailing me that little yellow star.

Self-summary. Hmm, hmm, hmmm....carry the 2, plus 16, let's see--I'm 443. Not bad.
What I’m doing with my life
My life, my life.... Well, like you, writing about my life is too odd. Instead, I'll say that I hope my profile is interesting, but I won't be surprised if it is just too much ho and hum. So okay, I'm probably interesting, but I'm pretty pretty sure, I'm not traditionally exciting. Which is to say I am by nature sort of interior, not a swashbuckler, nor a gregarious party-type. Depending on who you are, it may be fortunate that I balance out my blinding flash with a greater-than-average quirk quotient. For some that combination of "in-going" and quirky is just fine--even fun--but I've read many profiles of outward-ish people. Their resumes, compared to mine, read a bit intimidating so I'm just saying: for a red-painted night on the town, followed by naked hang-gliding and absinthe in war-torn Syria, I am not the man with the brush. More likely, I am the man who built the brush or tinted the paint. (wowee, should I uncork the smelling salts?)

To get on with it though, I'm otherwise tapping into my senses, emotions, intellect, creativity, not to mention my play-shape. And striving to be responsible--to be better and make it better.
I’m really good at
I'm such a dilettante. I know many of my friends say I'm accomplished, but I know I've never mastered anything, except perhaps an awareness of the mixed up, sweet-bitter gifts of life. And I don't know how "really good" I am, but I enjoy writing, editing, writing music, life-insights and beautiful relationships and filing metal edges smooth.....
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't know. slender? mussed and unironed? sorta alt-ish with a one-quarter sleeve cuff roll up?? I'm happy wearing jeans torn at the knee--but I also like to painstakingly patch them. The second thing might be my relentless curiosity.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Everyone has so much to say here, but I'll contribute one each from the left-field bag:
book--wilfred the rat
film--the russians are coming, the russians are coming
show--pepe le pew
music--the libertines
food--momotoro tomatoes
AND if you only have so much space in your pocket when you come to see me, throw out the book, the film, the show and the music--bring me those tomatoes.
The six things I could never do without
1-needle and thread
2-the strong belief that we have to pitch in once we see injustice and unfairness if we expect solutions
3-xanthan gum
4-a soft spatula--I don't understand what's with these crap-hard, inflexible spatulas
5-dreaminess and imagination
6-a variety of hammers. hammering is zen
(I've discovered I can do without the seventh thing)
8-a good, ratcheting screwdriver
9-a very rough washcloth
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I'm very very lucky to have my one and only wife and the sub-orbital life I stepped into. My grandmother's house. September 23rd, years ago. Why it's impossible to trisect an angle. What is that cool approach my math teacher, Ms. Lapasha taught me for finding the square root. Which is left and which right (I have a famously bad-but-deserved reputation for getting around).
On a typical Friday night I am
preparing for saturday (I've a weird work schedule)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
1)I was on the grassy knoll by the stockade fence in Nov 1963--I can say no more. 2 )Don't use copper cleaner on the bottoms of your pots. Switch to a few shakes of salt and a splash of white vinegar. 3 )Even though I denied it, I did steal that dime from Jackie in first grade. 4)I think my belly button is lower than most people's. 5) when I shower I talk to myself about what part of my shower comes next--sort of like play-by-play. 6)you may hate me for this but often I glaze over and shallowly skim an endless OKC list of one's favorite books and flicks--though I'm sure they're all lovely and tasteful. And oh yes 7)I am a poly, ethically non-monogamous guy in an open-marriage. I'm completely open with my wife (and she with me), but neither of us publicly flaunt the lifestyle.
You should message me if
As I stated at the top of the page, I can't see "likes" (oh! the cruel and painful affliction of like-blindness) so if you dare, message me rather than like me. Second --- I'll be honest. I will be tortoise-y deliberate in this process. Put another way: I'd love to meet someone who resonates with what I represent, who is kind and playful, but ONLY after some nice "seems-like-we're-clicking" messages. And more truth be told, generally speaking, finding someone within a dozen or so years of my age in either direction might make sense. Finally, I know I don't have a pic and that, I know, increases the odds of anyone even reading to this point (wait. I mean THIS point), but I do have such astounding pics to share with you, you wouldn't believe. I'm not hideous (oddly, I look a bit like the nice "outline man" in the photo box--you know, kind of straight-and-and-square standing, slender, with a tossed off do....) and I'll happily share, roots-to-toes, if we move to the exchange-y phase and so sorry about the hesitancy.
