My self-summary
This is a daunting task but I shall tackle it with a smile on my face and let words simply spill from my heart. I live my life with as corny as this sounds, a sense of wonder. Humor and humility allow me to walk a tightrope that recognizes both the joy of living and the inevitable obstacles that challenge our existence. I cultivate in all my interactions, those that I hold dear, and those in fleeting passing that I have an opportunity to spread a message of undestanding togetherness with actions, words and deeds. I give of my time generously, listen attentively, and pass only words of encouragement never judgement. Being in my presence means having simply the freedom to be whoever or whatever you are with the feeling of conditional acceptance. I am prone to acts of kindness with startling spontaneity. Thoughtful without needing or always desiring reciprocity. If any of this is of interest or curiosity please scribble me

I am compassionate, thoughtful, and kind
What I’m doing with my life
Currently I dwell in the spacious and sunset magazine decor of a corporate cube monday through friday, but on the weekends I can be found in numerous zipcodes that include art museums, hiking trails, or fun city restaurants. I'm currently looking to change fabric softeners, but I find the idea of actually reading consumer reports to validate that I'm hopelessly middle aged. I try to live with both humor and humilty and at busy delis I proceed directly to get my number so I can be in line for good pastrami.
I’m really good at
Sharing the world with spontaniety and a sense of joy. Living with an appreciation of simple moments when I can feel in my heart, humanity acting with a gesture towards building community. I'm good at sharing pizza topping requests, keeping score at the ballpark, knowing who painted what picture, and global wandering.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm marginally adorable. They are baffled by a life where I have no pretense or pass judgment. Sometimes they see the glasses and think, boy this guy must be brilliant, turns out I'm preposterously average in the cranium and had to take algebra twice. From a distance I appear not that tall, and upon arrival at face to face it's still the same scenario. I hope people notice that I have a good sense of humor and humility

Six things I could never do without
My sense of imagination, my sense of humor, my pez collection, my old ticket stubs, my photo albums, my ability to ask for a fork rather then chopsticks.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My life my dreams, the dreams of others, and the notion that this is all a dream
On a typical Friday night I am
Either out at a cultural event, home reading a book. Looking for coupons in the paper and eating icecream out of the tub in my ratty bathrobe.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That life is a mystery and I still eat kid's cereals..
You should message me if
You are looking for a good banana in the bunch, you like folks who are outgoing and optomistic. You are a believer in unconditional acceptance, you like to be surrounded with someone who is supportive and encouraging.
The two of us
