My self-summary
Warm, irreverent, imaginative and curious, funny and playful, goofy, nerdy, adventurous. Laid-back. Open and open-minded. Progressive and liberal, not conservative. I love to learn. I eat healthy foods, exercise, live an active lifestyle, though I'm not obsessive about it. I'm fit and look like my pictures. I'm very politically aware and interested, I'm very environmental, and I don't like the mess we're making of the world. I'm left-handed.

I have close friends from my whole life going back to childhood - a wide variety of people. I think it's something I'm lucky in. I'm a social person.

I love traveling. My last trip was in Italy and Germany. I've traveled a lot around Europe, the US, and the Americas. A year in England during college, and a bunch of trips back since. Some beautiful bike trips, in France, Costa Rica, national parks. A yoga ashram in the Bahamas (I'm not skilled at yoga). I want to go to the Far East, New Zealand, Australia, Iceland, South America, Berlin, Prague, Vienna, and simply escape occasionally to the Catskills forests.

I have two cats, sister and brother - I took them in long ago, two so they have each other. I love dogs too, I'd be happy to have one. (I love animals.) I also have plants - they're nice, and plants need homes too...
What I’m doing with my life
I write down all the extraordinary things that pop into my head - funny, psychological, historical, philosophical, scientifical, poetical. Since high school I've been doing this. Writing is fun and feeds on itself with inspiration. I'll make a novel or short stories one day, and people will find it fascinating. I also write down my dreams, whenever I can remember. My brother and I have embarked on recorded interviews of my parents, about themselves and the 20th century; we're doing it for posterity, for the world!

Living in Cobble Hill in Brooklyn 12 years now, raised in Jersey outside NYC. I work in software (though not a tech junkie, never have been) - it's a very pleasant place to be that lets me enjoy life. (I was a lawyer before, intended to go into environmental law, practiced a few years, found it wasn't for me - I'm still as environmental as ever though.) Financially comfortable & stable.

I'd be enjoying life more if I was off this site, happily forever together with the mysterious hidden woman whose fate is tied to mine.
I’m really good at
I have a good sense of humor, and a good sense of the absurd.
I'm good with words.
I'm pretty good at skiing.
I'm good at having conversations.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love the sublime and the strange in all things.

I received extremely strong musical training from my old brother when I was a tiny little child. He instilled in me GOOD MUSICAL VALUES. So I had a lot of really good albums by the time I was 10 years old. I knew very important songs and lyrics by the age of 8. I have since branched out, wherever the good music goes. And I don't get as much time as I'd like to listen to new music.

As for movies, I like independent, old, foreign, and once in a while a Hollywood superhero or comedy production. If you want I'll send you my next 45 movies on Netflix.

I'm currently reading some old Sherlock Holmes and Frederick Douglass' autobiography. A few favorite recent-ish books are The Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, and The Goldfinch, and I love a lot of old ones too. I love reading.

On the TV, some recent favorites are Portlandia, Jessica Jones, season 1 of True Detective, Game of Thrones, and most recently Stranger Things, and Black Mirror. The Wire (not finished), Breaking Bad.

Food: I love food. I love a good restaurant. Who doesn't?
Six things I could never do without
- friends and family
- adventure and exploring, hiking cities, forests...
- great music, movies, books, art, museums, theater, live music
- something to read, and something to write in
- nature and the outdoors
- my bike (just got a new bike)
- love and affection
I spend a lot of time thinking about
funny or interesting ways to describe things. the environment/the world's fate. beginnings and origins, and the evolution of things.
On a typical Friday night I am
out with friends shooting pool at one of the local bars, eating, or taking in some culture. or staying in watching a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i drink 3 large glasses of water every morning when I wake up. in the winter, hot water. keeps my cheeks rosy.

more of a disclaimer than revelation of a secret:
the golf course pic of me is rare. i'm not a big golfer.
You should message me if
You're a woman who is laid-back, unpretentious, imaginatively adventurous, uninhibited, open, and intelligent, with style mixed with grittiness. Or at least some of those. Weirdness is welcome. It also helps if you want a serious long-term relationship.

I can imagine having a fantastic life either with or without kids and I haven't ruled either out.
