I have a deep abhorrence for any organized religion.......most of them. Unitarians and Buddhists (if you can call Buddhists organized) excepted.
Nutshell; sculptor, dad, grand pa, dog walker, traveler, enjoyer of simple pleasures, making people laugh. A runner, biker, yoga, gym, dancing. A dancing fool; mostly cajun/Zydeco.
If you're looking for tall dark and handsome, forget the tall, and most of the dark. The humor has a Jewish tinge to it.
I love eating out simply; mostly asian, but I'm a complete omnivore. Indian is my least favorite food. Movies, day trips up the coast or out the Sacramento River Delta highway in my antique Alfa Romeo with the top down. Just got back from 5 months in Europe. I'd do that again in a moment, or actually anywhere (doesn't have to be 5 months.......that was a little long).
My daughters are grown and flown the coop (they're in their 40's) and have their own professions (Yoga studio owner and landscape architect).
I've been doing art in public places for the last 40 years.
Taking care of myself, my health, and well being.....I would like to be a more dedicated meditator. Still working on that.
I build and make things that don't fall down, and that work well. Often they're beautiful or at least interesting. I've managed to do this all my life and still have all my fingers intact.
I'm pretty good at making people laugh. For me, mirth is essential. Laughing with friends/companions/grand kids is the best.
Any movies by John Sayles, Lina Wertmuller, Ang Lee, most of Woody Allen, Christopher Guest, the Coen Brothers, the list goes on, you get the idea.
Mad Men, Doc Martin, Sopranos, 6 Feet Under, Dead Wood, Foyle's War, anything by Ken Burns, much of Masterpiece theatre, Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart (if only I had cable, which I don't), and again, you got the idea.
I don't sit and listen to much music; preferring to dance mostly to Cajun/Zydeco music which is like rhythm and blues. But I can be gotten to sit still for a wide range of blues, bluegrass, old rock, some jazz, space (ambient) music as in Music from the Hearts of Space on KALW. there's so much great new world music out there, and too little time!
AH food! All Asian, Asian fusion, a really good burger. Prefer healthy, working on reducing my red meat intake and am moderately successful at it. I'm a pretty good cook and enjoy cooking up a lovely stir fry, cioppino, turnkey soup etc. even just for myself, but preferably to be shared. All fresh fruit, especially off the tree.
You're looking for someone who will listen to you and respect your ideas, and wants to strike a balance between shared time, and needing space.
You're looking for someone who doesn't hang out in bars, but prefers a walk in the woods, coast trails, the Delta Highway in an ancient open top car, or just staying home.
You're looking for someone who doesn't own a new flashy car, a trophy house in the suburbs.....or for that matter a trophy anything!
Preferably you have been in long term relationships, raised children. Are physically active, with a fit body. Needless to say, you can process oxygen on your own.
