My self-summary
I guess I am not so easy to know, being a shy sort, but I try to be worth the effort. I am always at a loss for words about myself... I am self-aware, seasoned with life's learning. I claim credit for being focused on self-development rather than self-promotion. (I cringe in the face of the myriad profiles that seem self aggrandizing) I am a human being, I have flaws, I have made mistakes and had successes. I subscribe to the philosophy of "heads I win, tails I learn"
What I’m doing with my life
Enjoying it... while working as a semi-retired single man. Now thinking a partner in work, play and life is what I really want.
I am in pretty good health, doing something I like to do, and have carved out an enjoyable little niche to share with someone who appreciates simple pleasures.
I am not wealthy, and have to work in my "retirement", but I am lucky enough to have a trade that i enjoy, and which rewards me.

I have been alone for a while, after a long term relationship (12 years). I honestly had sworn off "romance" and abandoned the desire for intimate companionship. As a result of some poignant online experiences in the last year or so I have become increasingly aware of how much I miss and need that...for real.

Honestly, I am out of the "recovery" phase of a lost relationship at this point, and am now fully available for friendship and to what could follow from honest communication and shared interests and experiences.
I’m really good at
listening, thinking it through, making it better, companionship, communication of the heart,
using my hands creatively, constructively or sensually.
Also good at hanging in when it counts.
The first things people usually notice about me
long hair, green eyes, working (gentle) hands.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
the works of Mark Twain, Ken Kesey, Tom Wolfe, Gore Vidal
"Being John Malkovitch, The New Land, The Life of Brian"
Leanard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Kate Bush, John Prine, Iris Dement, Alison Krauss.
sushi, good vegetarian cuisine, good bread and cheese, the best coffee available
Six things I could never do without
good food, grandsons, engaging work, intimacy, companionship, beautiful skies (especially sunrise and sunset) my laptop
Ok thats more than 6
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the state of the world, our wacky frightening modern political reality, the future of my grandsons, how to improve my craft, what a difference love makes
On a typical Friday night I am
usually home, surfing the web or the channels, sometimes watching the giants play, thinking about life and love
...come over and we can watch your favorite movie
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
how private would it be if i typed it here? I guess the answer is see me off the record
You should message me if
you get the urge
The two of us
