I am on a quest to find intimacy in all its forms -- emotional, physical, spiritual and intellectual.
I've been a graphic designer and I've run my own business since 1986. I think a lot about anything and everything; I have a BA in philosophy. I enjoy conversation, and I'll talk about anything (even politics). I'm extremely candid and not afraid to share my personality. I have a wry sense of humor, but I'm not above silliness. I seem to have a knack at getting away with saying the things that others only think -- it's a blessing and a curse.
I write songs and poetry, and sing constantly. I sing in the halls, at the market, on the sidewalk, at the mall -- I sing. I enjoy the arts in (almost) all forms.
I'm an amateur photographer.
I like to cook and eat out. I'm happy to go to the local dive or a 5-star restaurant. I'm comfortable dressed to the nines, or hanging out in jeans.
I play golf when I can. I'm handy with power tools and I'm not intimidated by a large project.
I like to take aimless roadtrips.
I care about other people's feelings. I'm thoughtful and considerate.
I loathe stupidity and greed, thoughtlessness and callousness. I look around me and wonder what has happened to the world I grew up in? When did the bar get set so low? I hold myself to very high standards. I do the best I possibly can ALL the time.
Growing wiser as I become more mature. Learning is the experience of connecting the dots. As one connects more and more, one is able to connect more and more exponentially (or is that logorythmically?). I'm seeking to connect as many dots as I can perceive.

I'm told I have a cute butt -- I don't know, I can't see it.
Directors: Hitchcock, Kubrick, Tarentino, Ken Burns, Disney and 100s of others.
Films: 2001 A Space Odyessy, Quadrophinia, and everything in between -- I don't care for modern horror films, zombies or slasher movies, vampires and werewolves, and the like. I do like a good musical.
Shows: Too many to list. All time favs-The Prisoner, Masterpiece Theater (PBS), Columbo. I watch all kinds of stuff, lately I'm enjoying Japanese anime. I love animation, be that old cartoons, Pixar movies, or hastily drawn flip books.
Music: Elivs Costello, Pete Townshend, Bob Marley, Paul Simon, The Magnetic Fields, Peter Gabriel, Warren Zevon, Bob Dylan, Beatles, CCR, Elton John, KD Lang, Nick Lowe, Monkees, Van Morrison, Pink Floyd, REM, Cat Stevens, Queen, Squeeze...all genres. Rock, Pop, Classical, Jazz (not a big Metal fan).
Food: Yes, especially Italian--oh, and a good steak.
