My self-summary
"Were you looking for something?

"So that's what love is?"
"Multiply it by infinity and take it
to the depth of forever and you will
still have barely a glimpse of what
I am talking about."

The things that need to happen here are simple. Talk, meet, invest yourself and take a risk of exposing yourself, your soul, to another person. Be completely vulnerable. That is a problem isn't it. If you are on this site rather than say "tinder" then you are looking for something real, but you are hesitant because you have been hurt.

I realize that I don't know the way around what I just outlined above. I can't tell you who I am in a few paragraphs, just a few essential properties. I'll try my best, as I am always compelled to do so.

I am a professor who teaches physics at a university. This is both extraordinarily hard work and also very often a pleasure (sometimes more than others). I have two daughters who are both young adults. The older was married this past summer. The younger is working on her career /school path.

I love dogs, movies, coke zero (in moderation), and various chocolate (also moderation). I can cook a few things fairly well and do a good job with a full thanksgiving dinner or a few types of birthday cakes and such. Movies, HAH. I go around quoting movies all the time. Outside stuff, water is the favorite. I just roller skated again for the first time in many years. I had shied away from roller skating since I broke a leg doing so (badly) some years ago. It was fun to be back on wheels again and I did at least OK.

I'm not sure where life takes me from here. I guess I'd like to have someone around to do life with. Paradox now. How do you get together with someone and instantly have both a several decade long history and comfort with, and at the same time have the new fresh start instant passion that comes at the beginning? It is not possible to have both newness and oldness at the same time is it? Please someone answer me that. You can, since you are the person who makes those impossible things happen.

Whoever you are, I would hope to become infatuated with you and I hope to do so. I can't imagine building something worthwhile without starting with infatuation. That infatuated spark is so......wonderful, isn't it. Don't we all want that?

If you can imagine a mix of Ilsa Laslo, Beatrix Kiddo, Elizabeth Bennet, and Mrs. Araminty Brown, and "Lady". That would make for an interesting female character!

To learn more about me, you really have to interact with me. It's the dynamic and interactive part of a person that defines them. A dialogue is a start.

" I'm leaving this galaxy. For one
a little less complicated."

Oh, and kudos if you know those movie quotes.
What I’m doing with my life
If I knew all the answers to that then I probably would not be here. At this point in life I move forward in a predictable manner.

I need to get to work for the day and stop dallying with writing here. Soon.

Hmmm....the most honest answer I can give about what I am doing with my am hoping to find you. I'm not sure how to do that. I remain humbly hopeful. I don't think I have a real choice in this, as it seems to be simply my nature to hope for such a thing.

When did the world turn into such a strange place?
I’m really good at
Solving problems. Avoiding conflict. ...........and making strange connections to movies and movie quotes :)

I am a planner.

Instigation, Innuendo. These things I excel at.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not really trying to get noticed at first. That is perhaps what people notice first. It can take me a while to let a person in, but when I do, you are in.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Isaac Asimov--anything, Foundation. LOTR. Science Fiction is the favorite, but I like the classics also, Tale of Two Cities, Brave New World, Julius Caesar, Hitch hikers guide. Classic Rock. Food---I like to try almost anything new, I'll cook it too if you like.

Inglorious Bastards, Pulp Fiction, Apocalypse Now (not the redux--no no no), and many others. Not just action. I love to watch a good musical or drama. There are wonderful old classics too.

I'd say Casablanca for movies, but I probably should not say that here. Nonetheless it is true. What can I say? Ilsa and Rick.
Six things I could never do without
The universe, space, time, light, heat, energy, my brain, other people, chocolate, golden retrievers (though I don't have one currently), both an entry and exit orifice, gravitation, abstraction, the ability to count to six, and apparently a minor amount of clutter. Oh--and smiles. ----and of course the ability to quote movies.

"And that's the only thing I need is *this*. I don't need this or this. Just this ashtray... And this paddle game. - The ashtray and the paddle game and that's all I need... And this remote control. - The ashtray, the paddle game, and the remote control, and that's all I need... And these matches. - The ashtray, and these matches, and the remote control, and the paddle ball... And this lamp. - The ashtray, this paddle game, and the remote control, and the lamp, and that's all *I* need. And that's *all* I need too. I don't need one other thing, not one... I need this. - The paddle game and the chair, and the remote control, and the matches for sure. Well what are you looking at? What do you think I'm some kind of a jerk or something! - And this. That's all I need."

I guess I need to quote movies. LOL and :) Again, what movie? Can you identify. It's OK to cheat. Go ahead, look it up. Just laugh and smile dammit.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I am not very musical, but here is a favorite:

If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine
And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung
Would you hear my voice come through the music
Would you hold it near as it were your own?

It's a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken
Perhaps they're better left unsung
I don't know, don't really care
Let there be songs to fill the air

Ripple in still water
When there is no pebble tossed
Nor wind to blow

Reach out your hand if your cup be empty
If your cup is full may it be again
Let it be known there is a fountain
That was not made by the hands of men

There is a road, no simple highway
Between the dawn and the dark of night
And if you go no one may follow
That path is for your steps alone

Ripple in still water
When there is no pebble tossed
Nor wind to blow

You who choose to lead must follow
But if you fall you fall alone
If you should stand then who's to guide you?
If I knew the way I would take you home
My thoughts are varied and open to someone who would find them of value. ? Do you know what a TARDIS is? Would you go for a ride in one with me?
Who are you?
On a typical Friday night I am
There is no typical. It could be in with a kid, out with friends, or working on something.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Yes. Well, I can imagine having a conversation with you--- a dialogue, which builds like a musical crescendo in its intensity endlessly. Does anyone know what that is like? I suppose we all do. :) I have trouble believing that anyone really knows what that is like except you and I. Shrug. Tilted head. Quizzical look.
You should message me if
If you are someone who wants to develop that intensely deep and satisfying bond with another person. Nothing less will do.

Or ---answer the following questions. What is the saddest moment in movies--ever? How old is Dr. Who? and "Who said ""YOP!!!!"". Tell me those other movie quotes at from the top.

Or--tell me your earliest memory.

I can't see likes, but :), appreciated. Thanks. I'd rather have a message. Maybe you should just tell me a story, something out of your life. Telling a story is a good start.

Message if you like, but smile either way, I insist.
The two of us
