I do some art photography, read a fair amount, am attracted to intelligent women with a good sense of humor. Me, I am fit and slender. I cycle on the river trail regularly or take walks on the nearby acequia. I frequently go on a little hike on weekends with some close friends, usually into badlands wilderness.
I enjoy some silliness and crazy fun...love a good bottle of red.
I have a son who is long since grown up and on his own, a great guy.
My dog Sully just turned three in July 2015.
I have lived abroad for a couple years when young, including the Philippines, Pakistan, Mauritius, and Newfoundland. I am good at relating to people from other cultures because I find it refreshing. I hate the idea of "American exceptionalism," which is really chauvinism that gets us into all kinds of trouble.
movies: Anything by Akira Kurosawa, Altman's "Come Back to the Five & Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean", Bergman, Repo Man, sometimes weird French movies that leave you hanged in existential space....Lynch's Eraserhead.
music: jazz (especially Monk and Mingus and Brubeck) some blues, piano solos (jazz or classical), old rock (I admit that I was at the Fillmore during the Summer of Love in SF '67, but had never smoked pot), reggae, non-symphonic classical including Baroque. Some Charles Ives songs and his The Unanswered Question. My favorites lately have been Jethro Tull (40th Anniversary Ed. of Thick as a Brick...love it!), Leonard Cohen (various), and Joni Mitchell, and some other esoteric stuff, one of which mixes banjo and bass and tabla, which I find quite interesting...give me more! I love some classic Dylan, but not so much into his stuff in the last couple decades or so. I finally went to a Dylan concert last year, my first one! It was really fun, but his voice was completely shot...I couldn't even recognize the lyrics of songs I knew..giving him leeway on modifications to the arrangement.
food: Thai, Indian, New Mexican, Mexican, Greek, Italian, mashed spuds with tarragon, pizzas (usually veg), garlic pasta, limas with garlic sauteed in olive oil and crushed red chile on basmati rice...bring it on! [If your partner eats the same meal, you won't notice the head of garlic you each ate!] One favorite plate I fix is: baked potato, sauteed shallot onions in olive oil, mixed Chinese vegetables cooked in a wok in peanut oil, salmon filet cooked in the shallots, and drizzle the slallots and oil over the spud. I love great food. I can be thrilled with a baked spud with plenty of butter and dried chives and salt and pepper. What could be easier?
