My self-summary
Disclaimer: I am separated, meaning I have been living on my own, and completely apart from my "ex", for 4 years, but have put off a legal divorce because one of my teenage daughters has an illness that keeps her, and her mother, at home. (Legal status keeps "ex" in health insurance). OKC insists that I have to be "married" or "single", but that's black-and-white horsepucky. There is no ambiguity in my personal life. If my status is too threatening, however, no hard feelings. It's a zoo in here, and I know there are lots of shrews, rats and venomous snakes (who all claim they're "single", or "widowers," I'm sure.) If you, like me, think my status is more of an open-book technicality than a deal breaker or buzz kill, read on; I like you already, and I assure you, I'm only Human.

About me:

Smart, funny, athletic, outdoorsy, certified class 5 adventurer, loves surfing, sailing, whitewater kayaking, windsurfing, snowboarding, riding a bike, fishing for pike, pounding a spike. Up for any adventure (far-flung urban or wind-blown desert in toga-and-turban). Making, painting, writing, inventing, tinkering, thinkering. Artist, editor, technical director, set erector, marketing vector, anything fixer, vita mixer. Looking to meet you toe to toe with pick and hoe to grow a lasting yin-yang-him-her-shady-canopy-of cool out of thin air, blistering sun, and red dirt. Fun until it hurts. You are smart, playful, athletic, energetic, adventurous, youthful, tuned to the key of humor, with a tough-but-supple hide, and a sweet, loving sensuous side. Where, oh where, do you hide?
What I’m doing with my life
Breathing in. Breathing out.
I’m really good at
I'm good at almost everything I set my mind to, but I'm not good at setting my mind to doing just one thing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I smile and I "get it." I'm pretty intuitive and I usually can tell how you're feeling and I don't have any trouble understanding why.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love the arts, in general. I include food in that category.

My favorite musician: Elvis Costello
My favorite movie: Monsters Inc.
My favorite book: The Elements of Style
My favorite food: Vitello Milanese, that my mother still cooks on my birthday. (I've been moving away from pork and beef, and especially veal. Mom does halibut instead.) My Nonna's apple strudel that I haven't had since she died.
The six things I could never do without
A body of water
My own body moving through it
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, and how to live it well. Why I spend too much time thinking and not enough time living better.
On a typical Friday night I am
Living well. Or thinking about it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'll tell you anything privately.
You should message me if
If you think we'd like each other and have fun together, that's a good start.
