Music. My tastes are pretty eclectic.
My dog and cat - the loves of my life
Nature and the outdoors, gardening
What's important to me:
Progressive politics, environmentalism
Being busy (swim, hike, run)
Dancing - 70s funk, 80s.
Hot tubbing/ Hot springing
Parties with the peeps
Beach runs with the dog. We like Stinson best. She's a terrier. She keeps me busy.
I'm a bundle of contradictions. I'm generally drawn to other functional misfits.
I'm an atheist Jubu. I'm also Swedish.
I'm allergic to the precious.
I'm making a documentary film about Izzy Young (the Greenwich Village folk music promoter, presenter of Dylan's first NY concert; it's getting me really into early blues & folk musicians like Rev Gary Davis, etc.)
Playing my wineglass organ. Lots of instruments in my house - grand piano, several guitars which get the folk guitar treatment (1925 Martin parlor guitar!), ukulele, nyckelharpa, various recorders and such. Wish I could play them all.

TV: The Prisoner, The Wire, Brideshead Revisited, House of Cards, Sherlock, Transparent, Hannibal.
Food: Tapas, Japanese, Middle Eastern, homemade delights, seafood, etc, etc. I cook and can food that I grow in my garden.
Nature (preferably out of reach of civilization) and getting dirty in the garden
Culture – theater, music, literature – things that make me think, feel, giggle
Listening to my housemate spin 45s - 60s soul, 70s psych, 80s power pop - you get the picture. Pretty great to have your own private DJ.
Would rather be camping. Would rather be dancing. Would rather be at the theater.
You're not polyamorous or politically conservative (I've tried that. Live and learn)
