My self-summary
Thanks for taking the time to visit.

To start, "I would never want to belong to any club that would have someone like me for a member." :O) (Groucho). Seriously, though, I'm an honest, fun-loving, passionate, compassionate, kind, sincere, hard-working and active guy with lots of integrity. Have a great sense of humor and love people who do, as well. Thrive on meaningful dialog and am committed to personal growth. Really enjoy the peace of the outdoors and the energy of city life. Love: creating a pleasant environment in which to live, travel, reading just about anything, the beach. live music, dancing and affection. I value consciousness, kindness, integrity, honesty, optimism and social justice. I feel life is precious and should be enjoyed to the fullest. I deeply value spirituality and love all that life has to offer!
What I’m doing with my life
Living my un-lived life, honoring myself and others, evolving, trying to be the best person I can possibly be. Love what I do and having my own business. Trying to be with family and friends as much as possible. Trying to find that ever-elusive chemistry with the right partner. All sorts of things that keep me fit as I've been athletic all my life. Looking to travel more - in the US, Europe, South America, Africa, etc, ... .
I’m really good at
Being a great Dad/brother/friend, being a good Samaritan, being empathic, socializing, listening, conversing, giving people a chance/finding the good in everyone, giving an honest opinion, being intuitive, affectionate, anything involving athletics, being pretty darn goofy at times, present, attentive and very much involved when in a loving relationship.
The first things people usually notice about me
Ahh ... my ruggedly handsome looks??? I don't know. How attentive I am, my likeability, how honest, passionate and compassionate I am, my eyes. How well I listen. That I love to have fun, tell lame jokes and laugh a lot, that I can also be quite serious, that I'm engaging, authentic, fit, real ...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Good Lord, this is impossible. I like to read everything! Classics, biographies, fiction, non-fiction, anything by David Sedaris, John Sanford, Robert Johnson, Bill Bryson. Recently: "The Looming Tower" - chilling, "Listen, Liberal" by Thomas Frank - insightful, "Best and the Brightest", etc ... . Anything having to do with self-knowledge, the human condition, politics, economics, music, art. Recently finished "Team of Rivals"; Abe Lincoln has to be the greatest American man ever! Movies I have really enjoyed include: Casablanca, Cuckoo's Nest, Chinatown, Godfather, Airplane, Annie Hall, Monty Python, Big Night, Life is Beautiful, On the Waterfront, Z, The Birds, Rear Window, Gump, As Good as it Gets, My Cousin Vinny, Goodfellas, Philadelphia, Birdman, Spotlight, etc. ... . Love all kinds of music and LOVE live music (which I don't see enough). Anything from Sinatra to Ella to Sara Vaughan to Duke Ellington. Gershwin, Porter, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, The Band, Van Morrison, Roy Orbison, Talking Heads, Mark Knopfler, Chrissie Hynde, Los Lobos, Paul Simon, Radiohead, Amy Winehouse, Sinead O'Connor, Tedeschi Trucks; the Blues (Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, all the Kings), Jazz ; there is SO much great music out there! Absolutely LOVE Italian food, seafood, Mexican, Thai, Good ol' American fare; I'll try and eat anything (except asparagus!).
Six things I could never do without
My two daughters, my baby Grandson, my family, friends, exercise/hot shower, intimacy, the outdoors, great coffee and reading material. travel, hope, love ...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Lots of things: my family, relationships, whatever became of civility, how to make myself a better person, how lucky I am to have reached a point in my life where I actually do realize just how lucky I am, the unconscious, what makes someone decide to become a Republican and worse, remain one (especially now!), what it's going to take to get us to actually do something about the mess we've created, travel, nice vacations, sweet, open-minded and compassionate people, why so many people are addicted to technology and don't live in the moment, how exciting being with a special someone will be.
On a typical Friday night I am
Depends. Could be out with friends for dinner and drinks, or crashing at home after a long week watching a movie, reading or listening to some nice music. Otherwise, could be walking on hot coals, bungee jumping, sky diving, being shot out of a cannon (my personal favorite; yours, too?); you know, pretty much the same stuff we're all doing :O)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
"I once took a test in Existentialism and left all the answers blank. I got a 100." (Woody Allen)
You should message me if
You are kind, caring, your family comes first, you are fun, funny, bright, beautiful both inside and out (at least to me!), compassionate, loving, energetic, fit, passionate and involved, grounded, respectful, honest, not pretentious or arrogant, a good friend and empathic. If you feel quality is much more important than quantity, have integrity, and ... what you have read here resonates with you and feel we just might connect.
The two of us
