On the other hand, I'm a big reader and I write stories sometimes, mostly true.
I'm attracted to warm-hearted intellectuals, gay-seeming straight men, and wry humor, preferably in combination. I'm an ENFP, which means I'm an introverted extrovert. But these days, I've been pretty introverted. Although I've dipped my toe into OKCupid over the past several years, I've dated only sporadically. I'm looking for someone unusual I guess. I'll try to describe that more fully when I can figure it out myself. Probably I'd like to date the rare INFP.
I have a curatorial project that's ongoing which will translate into a museum exhibit in the next year or so. Once that's complete, I'll be freed up to consider my options, especially living abroad for awhile, which is high on my list of desires.
I've been working on my house here in the Bay Area a bit (in case I decide to sell) and I'm also very slowly restoring that 19th century house in the Adirondacks (upstate NY). I dream of having a place for family and friends to gather during the summers for canoe trips, hikes, visits to nearby Montreal, horseshoes and campfires.
Community and companionship are a bit lacking in my life right now because most of what I do, I do alone. Which has made me a bit of an introvert I think. A companion would really be a breath of fresh air.
Right now I'm reading Krakatoa, learning about the development of the spice trade and the rumble that ushered in globalism. I love the sort of non-fiction that gives me a glimpse into a time before something we now take for granted was known. An example would be Dava Sobel's Longitude or a book I once read about the time before centralized timekeeping. I'm also buried in books about early anthropology and 19th century journalism, theosophy, and American Indians.
Recent TV: Wallander (Swedish), The Killing, Deadwood, Lie to Me, Dexter, and Downton Abbey.
Music: I've been using Pandora stations more than my own music library. I have Bebel Gilberto, Bowerbirds, Traditional Blues, Cab Calloway, Antonin Dvorak, Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova, Sean Hayes, Carla Bruni, Cole Porter, Jose Gonzalez, Van Morrison, Iron & Wine, Joanna Newsom… you get the idea perhaps?
Lately I've been wondering if the wizard has anything in his bag for me.
