My self-summary
Scrapping the old profile, some variant of which has been up since Bush was in office. Life is in flux, and what's allowed me to keep alive is a bit of spiritual self examination, and sheer will to live. I'm fortunate to have the space to mature and cope with some realities, while pursuing my calling to photograph and write my own personal take on things. Seen some miraculous things that tend to take one's mind off the daily heartbreak and grind that the "news" tries to spoon feed us all.

I empathize with social justice causes, yet find myself searching for encouragement to resist compassion fatigue.

Back in junior high Latin class, they taught us the phrase "sui generis" referring to an unique thing -"of its' own kind". I grew into being sui generis compared to other gentlemen you might run into either online or in real life ( as we all hope one or several of these online communications will evolve into...). For what it's worth, I kill time playing a couple of different tagging games on Facebook, and the word cloud I've been receiving about myself includes: Gorgeous Hot charming wow Cute Handsome attractive Awesome breathtaking...

That's random ladies' worldwide opinion based on a few pictures (I'm a photographer, so I know what side of the viewfinder I actually belong on ) Worldwide is good, but local enough to DC to on the spur of the moment call and go have pizza or drinks without worrying if it's supposed to be the be all to end all is more what 54, tested negative for STIs, divorced and hoping for companionable lady company is about.

If the universe were cooperating and I were in tune with what the next several right moves to respectively make, then you would be fearless emotionally honest fair ethereal, poetic, open minded & hearted woman between 35 and 60 ready to follow our mutual bliss




I am creative, ambitious, and loving
What I’m doing with my life
Writing the sequel to a semiautobiographical, illustrated soundtracked electronic novel, Working a job that keeps myself and my cats Wendy and Lisa inside.
I’m really good at
Writing,my day job, Cooking, Photography, chilling out, making martinis .
The first things people usually notice about me
Jeez He's tall, he didn't SOUND black on the phone
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:The Book of Exen by Barry Reese (www.thebookofexen.com) Atlas Shrugged, Breakfast of Champions,

Music: The short list would run from ABC to ZZ Top. Bands I've seen live include the Who, the Rolling Stones,Alice Cooper, David Lee Roth, Sammy Hagar, Van Halen, Blondie, Jethro Tull, Pearl Jam,Kansas, Letters to Cleo, Timbuk 3, Garbage , Heart , Robert Palmer ( rest in peace with your sailing shoes on). Typical black guy move would be to say no country, but I like Chris Isaak, k.d. lang, and the twangier Brian Setzer, post Stray Cats stuff. Atypical black guy move says no thanks to hip hop, whatever happened to good old soul music, but the originators of the form actually ha a thing or several to say.

Movies: Star Wars would have been my favorite at 15, and the sequels were ok - saw each of them opening weekend in their respective years of release.

Currently - Siesta http://youtu.be/XngsdplfW08 (Ellen Barkin, where have you gone? I always wanted to be Gabriel Byrne after seeing that)Magnolia, Eyes Wide Shut, Body Heat, The Postman always Rings twice ( the 40's version, though Jessica Lange was very sexy in the '80s version), for starters...
Black Friday was kind enough to bring a modern flat screen and the means to stream most anything current but if it's special the old school going out for popcorn and surround sound on a 50 foot diagonal screen might be a nice night out for us...

Food: Nothing beats a good steak and baked potato, but Chinese, seafood, Italian are always gonna be good standbys. My doctor wants me to go on something called the paleolithic diet - if the cavemen didn't have it, we shouldn't eat it. I eat for taste. Life is short, and to be enjoyed.
Six things I could never do without
Other than the Maslow list? My cats Wendy and Lisa ( even if they can be destructive little pains in the ass ) Frostwire, family, friends, tantric meditiation
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my family, my cats, money, the meaning of life, what's for dinner
On a typical Friday night I am
no such thing as a typical Friday night...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is you can ask me point blank about it face to face and I'll tell you and it'll stay private like that, 'k?
You should message me if
You are a real woman who doesn't play emotional games. You want to have me come cook you a bowl of shrimp curry. Anything I've written resonates... Or if I've contacted you in the past, enthusiastically, but what I had to say for myself at the time failed to impress, and on further review, the woman's prerogative to change her mind so moves you...
The two of us
