My self-summary
I started life as an artist wannabe/hippie, then switched to "serious" work in IT.
After 25 years in that world, I am now retired.

I can find humor in almost anything. And I'm likely to just say it in most circumstances. Anybody who can make me laugh is my friend for life. I like all kinds of humor, ranging from slapstick to Seinfeld.

I also like finding out new things and especially like living in a time of iPhones and computers, where any fact is findout-able in less than 90 seconds.

Lastly, I am 69-but not really. Think of me as more like 59, because I didn't get married and have children (or even think about it) till I was 40.

Now, turned out to be the best thing I ever did and I'm deeply grateful for it. But that delayed aging onset. I spent my 20s and 30s traveling(wandering).

My two children (one of each flavor) are launched and I love being with them whenever we can get our schedules to match up.

I am (too) analytical, funny, and curious about many many things. I'm looking for the right woman to be with long term.
What I’m doing with my life
I don't know. Maybe returning to things I used to do like printmaking or photography. I may also return to simple poetry. And volunteering.
And going to as many art openings as possible
I’m really good at
When I feel like it - wordsmithery
The first things people usually notice about me
How would I know this? Seriously.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
New Yorker, NPR, NatGeo, Discover.
For their sheer prose excellence: Cold Mountain, West With The Night. Plays that are poetry: Jasmina Reza-even before the last New Yorker article.
For more general interest: one whole shelf on 1st-2nd century(CE) Christianity.
Another whole shelf on Shakespeare related.
Anything on Medieval to Enlightenment history, especially the crusades. Also the Spanish "discovery" of the Americas.
Anything on the American Revolution, or very early California history.
Poetry: I scrape whatever comes by me for nuggets. Small collection only. If forced under pain of death to name someone - W.S. Merwin.
Just finished(almost): The Crusades by Thomas Asbridge
Six things I could never do without
Stupidly phrased question (global truth content problems)
If they mean name 6 things in my life that I like best, well..they change.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What is this (stuff existing apparently) really?
On a typical Friday night I am
You should message me if
You want to explore and play at least a little bit,
and you have low-maintenance hair - 10 minutes max.
And weigh less than 150. I'd like to be able to pick you up when the mood arises.
