My self-summary
First of all, I'm not into all these "I's", but "I" guess it's a necessary evil, huh. Okay, as an initial spur of the moment description, I'm an avid recycler and care deeply about all things environmental and sustainable, and try to live as 'lightly' as possible. This includes not being into consumerism - but not to the point of wanting to live in a cabin :-) . I'm very liberal in my politics, and am spiritual but clearly not religious. Thought I'd get the major 'strikes' out there right up front! I am, in my humble opinion, an interesting combination of sophistication and base-ness and, accordingly have a life-long strain of non-conformist in me. I love intellectual stimulation, I love affection and intimacy, and humor of all sorts at all possible times. I'm not into 'face' time, per se, but can socialize quite well when needed. I love to putz on my property. I'm also not an urban-oriented guy, but can certainly enjoy the sights and sensory offerings of cities in a touristy kind of way. I'm ultimately looking for casually floating on a river of passion with someone who also loves being 'one' with her partner, while also not threatening our individuality. An old hippie might work, as well as a skeptical optimist, who wakes up each morning (not a night owl) with inherently renewed affection and optimism. Would love to meet someone who likes being irreverent, spontaneous and uninhibited. Just for starters :-) !
What I’m doing with my life
I'm officially retired (again), but until Xmas '12 worked part-time at a new local organic/local foods store purely out of a love for its mission and its potential contribution to our health and our global ecology. As well as volunteering with several environmental and social justice efforts, and working (slowly but doggedly) on creative projects, such as sculpturing found wood.
I’m really good at
Hmm. I think I'm pretty good at thinking, loving and observing. And trying to be a positive experience for those with whom I interact. Hopefully, also listening and trying to find the silver lining in life's aggravations. I'm sure there's more here, but I may have to add them later!
The first things people usually notice about me
I have absolutely no clue.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm all over the place here. I'd been reading adult mystery/action books/novels recently, but have recently been devoting time to a large backlog of magazines piling up, of all sorts. Movie-wise, I (as a guy) like quality action films, but also indie films, and even romantic films... As for food, I unfortunately can't eat hot stuff, but love all sorts of cuisines. Musically, I have a fantastic assortment of CD's, albums, etc. from all genres that stop abruptly around the mid-eighties.
Six things I could never do without
1. Affection - in all its realms
2. Integrity
3. Humor - in all its realms
4. Conscientiousness
5. My kids
6. Positive options for tomorrow
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My, and everyone's, qualities and frailties, my final partner, our political and environmental futures, the next football season, what's happening outside, introspection, and a bunch of stuff I forget!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
C'mon, this is just TOO loaded!
You should message me if
You're interested in knowing more (duuh) !!
