My self-summary
“Human beings are not born once and for all on the day their mothers give birth to them, but… life obliges them over and over again to give birth to themselves.”
Widowed, I have evolved for many years and I am still a work in progress. With each change, usually a result of lessons learned from mistakes, I try to keep myself continually moving forward in a positive way so I become a better Dad, son, brother, friend… partner.
Having said that, I don't take myself too seriously and over the years I've come to realize that a lot of my life's baggage was actually quite dumb to have hung on to. There is so much to be thankful for... I have been incredibly lucky.
What I’m doing with my life
Like many, I worked for many years hoping to retire at an age when I could still physically do things and, like a fortunate few, I was successful and retired 7 years ago.
No longer in the game I find mostly simple things occupying my time. Yard work, exercise, playing in my “oldies” band, a little traveling, family (Ok, maybe that last one is sometimes not so simple.), Savoring the moments.
I’m really good at
Making people feel comfortable and at ease. I enjoy hearing them laugh.
The first things people usually notice about me
I don‘t know… really. A calm demeanor?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I used to read a lot of fiction in my youth but these days I prefer non-fiction. On my list of all time favorites? "The Count of Monte Cristo", "The Godfather" and "Catch 22" among other classics (Ok, ok, I know I'm old!).
I can listen to almost anything (except Rush but he's not music.) depending on my mood. I'm a 60's child so music from that era is always good.
Ahhh, food... Good food and fine wine who doesn't enjoy that?!
The six things I could never do without
1. Family.
2. Health.
3. Friends.
4. Humor.
5. Dogs.
6. Love.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I guess I often think about what most people my age think about... "Ok, where's the nearest restroom?" "Should I be eating that?" "What the heck was his name?" and other important stuff of that nature.
Oh yeah, sometimes I go deeper... like hoping I prepared my kids adequately for their own journey through life and of course, my mortality.
On a typical Friday night I am
trying to find a way to enjoy a typical Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I am a private person.
You should message me if
You are open minded, well groomed, adventurous, grounded, relatively drama free and feel that while none of us are perfect, reasonable people can usually bridge differences enough to find peace, harmony and, hopefully, happiness.
Oh, having a sense of humor doesn't hurt either.
