My self-summary
First off, I don't photograph well, don't take selfies, and the picture above is about five years old now. I have gone much more grey, so don't expect me to look that good. My teeth are better, for what it's worth.

I am a writer, employed as a computer service technician, with a novel brewing, and a few drawers full of poetry. Some of my songs have actually been sold for actual money (not a lot) in South Korea. Why is beyond my understanding, but it's funny as heck.
Living alone now. Recovering from the divorce was a big job, but it is going well, since it's amicable. I have so much painting and house overhaul to do!
Oh, and if at all possible, I intend to save the world. Gently!

I am rebellious, thoughtful, and philosophical
What I’m doing with my life
One part rebuilding, and one part continuation.

I'm trying to write my first novel, reworking and recording old and new songs with my brothers, SLOWLY making my recently acquired house look slightly less like the hiding place of a serial killer. Everything is slow going, but mostly in the right direction.
I’m really good at
Reasoning in a balanced fashion. I am perhaps genetically programmed for this, with an intelligence analyst father, and a civil engineer grandfather.
I'm also fairly handy fixing things, though all too often I can fix SOMEONE ELSE'S stuff, while my own remains mysterious!
The first things people usually notice about me
? I don't know. People don't usually SAY what the first thing they notice about someone is. See? I'm pretty literal in responding to questions. Maybe THAT would be what people pick up on most quickly.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm trained as an Historian, so my personal library has a bunch of history books, but I read mysteries and science fiction somewhat voraciously. I wouldn't say I have a favorite book, unless you include reference material: I do look at historical Atlases for entertainment as well as education.

I love films. Have a rather large collection. Everything from Bogarts best, to Salmon Fishing in the Yemen.
Six things I could never do without
There are THAT many things I need to have? I'm in big trouble! I thought it was the usual hierarchy of needs, plus personal preferences. I've HAD to do without plenty of things, so I don't think I could give this a serious answer.
Well, okay:
my mind, and my soul.
that's enough.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to SAY things. I'm a writer, after all. Also, as a musician, I'm usually busy pondering a new Bass line for something I'm working on, writing a new song, trying to think of new subjects to talk about in song, poetry or novel form.
Sex, too, I'm reasonably normal in that respect. I don't fit the "every seven seconds" nonsense, or even the slightly more believable "several times a day" myth. I'd rather leave off thinking about it, for when I can be doing it. Otherwise, I'll probably crash my car, or smash my fingers in the machines I'm trying to fix.
On a typical Friday night I am
Recovering from the week of work! I'm disinclined to fight the sea of people trying to squash their romantic lives into Friday and Saturday nights.
If you want to know what I would do if the other yokels WEREN'T filling the roads and lengthening the lines at various venues, I'd probably be going to live theatre performances, some dancing, and even eating out occasionally, if I could afford it. Times are tight right now.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Too difficult for a literal person like me to figure out what the MOST private thing would be. This is kind of a "dare " question, and I don't respond to dares in an amicable fashion, as a rule.
With people I'm speaking to, I'm fairly open about my life. I would restrain myself from bringing up things I suspected would make others uncomfortable, but if someone asks, I'm most likely to answer logically and completely.

Perhaps something in this area:

I have a very short "bucket list." It includes

1. to finish and record as many of my songs as possible, to finish all of my personal writing projects.

2. to develop the opportunity to finally have a high tea, using my exquisite small collection of Wedgwood china and glassware.

3. to find my first real, and final life mate.
You should message me if
If you want to, I guess.
