My self-summary
I'm a romantic person with the soul of a poet. I enjoy life and try to see the beauty in everything.

I am looking for:
- New friends ... I believe in serendipity!
- Collaborative fiction writing partners
- Jokes. I don't know enough of them, and I'd like to hear your favorites (clean or dirty). Even if you're giving my profile a pass, go ahead and send me a joke - it's cool!

I would welcome:
- Discussions of any album by any of the bands listed under "Music"
- Recipe exchanges
- Development of ideas for performance art

I also enjoy board games, word games, political discussions, and texting.

Depending heavily on the time and place, I may be available for your flash mob. I blend in well.

I am happily married and am not looking for someone to date.
