Smart, athletic, outdoorsy adventurer, loves surfing, sailing, whitewater and ocean 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.
Disclaimer: I am permanently separated, not to be confused with "sleeping on the sofa, because my spouse won't have sex with me." I have been living on my own, and completely apart from my "ex", for 4 years. I have put off a legal divorce because my legal status keeps her in health insurance while she cares for our daughter full time. That fact does not define me, but it does reflect the kind of person I am. OKC requires that I be either "married" or "single", but, like so many things in life, that is not really a binary choice.
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.
