I have started to see someone and it seems very promising. It sneaks up on one.... I should have gotten off OKC several months ago.... but wasn't sure, and wasn't sure, and then neglected to do it! I'm sorry! I've received notes from some wonderful-sounding people! I wish everybody good luck! I will come back here in awhile and close the profile (assuming all goes well).
I know it takes some time. It takes a lot of effort.
But I've done it before. I can do it again.
I want to become close to a female human being.
I write poetry, fiction, nonfiction (favorite poets: Keats, WS Merwin). I edit people's novels and non-fiction. I also sometimes dabble in mixed media conceptual art, using photography and/or collage. Extreme lover of books. I sell rare books, specializing in poetry, art, and photography. I like to go to readings, movies, museums, galleries, antique shops, places of beauty outdoors.
I try hard to practice both honesty and kindness, generally with success. I believe in a life that is creative, erotic, and humane.
Books? Moby Dick. Lolita. Catcher in the Rye. Huckleberry Finn (unexpurgated).
Music? Folk, Buddy Holly, classic rock, try to follow the recent--I like System of a Down and Dresden Dolls. Bob Dylan. Emmylou Harris. Some classical, mellow jazz. Like to be introduced to new things.
Food? I was in the Peace Corps in Korea, and have grown to love virtually all Asian food. And to be interested in at least trying everything.
