My self-summary
I'm your average renaissance man. Successful, educated, alive--happy. Have earned my arrogance. (Modest too.)
I am blessed (really I didn't do anything to earn this) with an intense awareness and appreciation of music, art, theater, gymnastics, chess, the law and football. (to name a few)
Complex I am but send me your Gordian knot. I'll take a hack at it.
I'll be a lot happier when I find my other half.

If I like a joke I tell it over and over again. If my friends tire of them I trade them in for new friends.

"What's more important, the sun or the moon?
"Obviously, the moon cause the sun's there when it's light anyway but the moon--it comes on at night when it's dark and you really need it. Hah. Heard that when I was 6. Good, huh?

"How many psychiatrists does it take to change a light bulb?" Oops, have to trade you in.

Quips I like:
"When you get to the fork in the road--take it" Yogi Berra.
"Nobody goes to this restaurant anymore--it's too crowded. YB
"When the going gets tough, the tough go shopping." Anon.
"A shortcut is the longest distance between two points".
"We read so we may know we are not alone", Anthony Hopkins in a Brit film--master to student at boarding school.
"I used to be different but now I'm the same".
"Put two Rabbis (or 2 CNBC commentators) in a room and you get 3 opinions".
"He's entitled to his own opinions but he's not entitled
to his own facts".
"I update so I may pretend that somebody reads this", Me.

I am a Libertarian and admirer of Ayn Rand (though not a cultist). This is not a parlor conversation matter. "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness" is real to me.
The New Hampshire flag captures my feeling well; it blasts--
"Don't tread on me".

I see that this process of finding my mate is going to take work; it won't happen magically. I have the means and will travel almost anywhere to find my woman.

It just occurred to me to mention this:
If you have children you are raising this is a bonus
not an obstacle!

I just noticed this old answer re ruling the earth -- and I like my answer enough to repeat it here for your consideration.
"I want only to rule myself. I am so liberal and so respectful of others that I am NOT a left-winger. I don't want to tread on the dreams of any mortal and so..... egalitarianism is toxic to me. No redistribution of wealth. If you are open to consider this point of view we could meet or at least talk.
BTW no silver spoon was I given. Now I even have a silver fork. "I used to be different but now I'm the same" means I've had my values since I was 12."
What I’m doing with my life
I work and work. That's what I like to do.
I founded a company We Clean America 32 years ago ; have survived and thrived. I trade options for fun and profits.

I live at the Disney, the Laemmle and the theater. I play volleyball and love Bridge. Working on becoming an Expert.

I'm planning to return to Counseling as a volunteer. (Therapist)
I've played with a violinist and Cellist and am looking to do it again. (piano) Some horns and drum players for jazz sessions would be great. (Males, females if you know anyone).

There's more. Let's talk. About You,you,you.
I’m really good at
Listening. Creative copy writing. Running 5 minute meetings that focus. Problem solving. Causing problems that need solving. I'm skilled at both.
The first things people usually notice about me
My enthusiasm for them. My soft cashmere sweater. I need a haircut. I'm better looking than the pictures. Who knows?
My $300,000 Ferrari. Yeah, right.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Reading "Love in the Time of Cholera", "Rules of Civility".
New Yorker Short Stories--Read them...Glad I did!
Way back--"To Kill a Mockingbird". Shakespeare, Shakespeare and did I mention "Shakespeare? Mary Oliver poetry, yes!
Films. The English Patient, Aimez-vous Brahms?, Il Postori (?)(Postman) Quartet,"Amour, Lincoln, Zero Dark Thirty, Downton Abbey with the great Dame Maggie Smith.
And let us not forget Brahms 2nd piano concerto by Svyataslov Richter --Bach's Partita#2 for unaccompanied violin, Isaac Stern.

TV, I love TV Law and Order, The Americans, Brit Mysteries, Sherlock, Hitchcock, I Love Lucy, Boston Patriot football games, The Lakers.

Sabes que? I almost forgot the great "Buena Vista Social Club"

Food, Yes. Italian, Italian, good New York Deli, Langers on Alvarado) Steamed Lobster. Prime Rib.
I'll try whatever you're having.
Six things I could never do without
Oxygen, Heart, Lungs, Kidney, Liver, my Grandma,
but she died anyway.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to bring about a coffee date before Christmas?
How many years before the Lakers rebuild.
How I could form a business teaching OKC women how to write profiles that distinguish and define themselves. (not a lot of time to devote)
To the point of tears--how we wasted 4,500 lives and 1.7 trillion dollars in Iraq. God dammit!
On a typical Friday night I am
Out to Dinner (always out lunch they say) or watching the Lakers.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You should message me if
You exhale about as often as you inhale.
You are not an ax murderer.
You are between 4 and 6 feet tall.
You are willing after a message or two to actually talk on the phone. We could plan for a December meet.

Basically I'm a lonely miserable guy. Want to have coffee?
Someone suggested I drop this. Did you believe that? :)
The two of us
