My self-summary
I've lived in SF over 20 years now and like this town, most of the time. I feel lucky to be established and be connected so closely to my extended family and friends in the Bay Area. For me, SF is an unusual, beautiful, (and liberal) place, and when I'm here I still sometimes feel like I'm on vacation. If I get too caught up in the rat race, I tend for forget how much I like it here, so I'm trying to slow down more often to appreciate it all.

I enjoy traveling to places such as France and New England. I also love exploring the Northern California Coast. I appreciate remote places with little light and noise pollution, but I equally enjoy holidays in the heart of Manhattan and Paris.

I believe that pics and profiles cannot ultimately determine attraction. Two people must meet to determine whether chemistry exists, which in my mind is a mystery. While there is some basis to profiling, I don't take it too seriously or rigidly.

For those into C.G. Jung, I am clearly an "INFP" according to official Myers-Briggs type indicator tests. I'm almost at the extreme end of "N" and "F", and pretty far end of "P." (That's in addition to the test I took on OKC, on which I also came out as an INFP.)

Sidenote: I do not watch porn. Nothing against it but I don't like the desensitizing impact it has on my brain.

Left-wing. Enjoy Marx, kpfa, radical faeries, feel the Bern 🔥

Now that the democratic primary has been stolen, I'm feeling less optimistic about the future.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm quite involved in volunteer work, which includes some travel. At this point I'm quite interested in personal development.

I've been super lucky in my career, though I don't define myself by it. I've worked for same company for 17 yrs, in the same basic field for 23. The friends I've made in my career are the most important aspect of it.
I’m really good at
Creative writing: "Once upon a time in a distant land there lived a queer who was so masc, he couldn't even remember where he put his....."
The first things people usually notice about me
Everyone says my voice is quite discernible, but I don't totally get that even when I hear a recording of myself.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Kurt Vonnegut is my favorite American author. Next in line is Kilgore Trout. My favorite single book is Walden by Henry David Thoreau: I have a wonderful hardcopy edition with beautiful drawings. I felt enlightened reading Gay Spirit by Mark Thompson. I've read Grapes of Wrath and Heart of Darkness multiple times. Lacuna & Poison Wood Bible by Kingsolver. 2007 translation of War and Peace. Does anyone not like Mark Twain? Victor Hugo. Mattilda sycamore Bernstein! James Baldwin!!

I appreciate all sorts of music and theater-- everything from opera to off-off Broadway. My favorite operas are Wagner’s Ring cycle and Mozart’s Don Giovanni. My musical interests also range from Baroque to what I consider to be "classical" jazz (e.g., Miles Davis). I like nearly everything performed at the Berkeley Rep and Marsh. I love classical organ concerts, and spent six weeks attending many in Paris. I used to play the organ. Johnny Cash! Tom Waits! The Weavers!! Lou Reed!!! Recently I've gotten into Utah Phillips. Fats Waller is my new favorite.

I enjoy told South Park episodes-- laugh out loud funny. I am always up for movies especially independent flicks at places like Roxy and Opera Plaza.

When possible I like to know where my food comes from. Whenever possible I prefer supporting local, organic, small farmers. I appreciate good food and regularly frequent farmers markets. I like trying all sorts of restaurants and cafes in various categories. I’m trying to improve my cooking skills and find myself swearing by my cast iron skillets (I have three. Is that too many?).

I do not watch porn.
The six things I could never do without
Never say "never." (that's just for me).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The meaning of existence. Though I'm not 100% sure that there is one.
On a typical Friday night I am
Varies. Nothing typical for me.
