My self-summary
OK- first of all, I do not live in New York - I live in Western Mass but I come to NYC frequently on business and fun - and would love to have a few friendly, funny, smart, spiritually tuned in friends to hang with when I'm there

not looking for romance or sex or anything at all really, except someone to explore the town with and have a nice dinner and a few laughs with..... that being said, I never close myself to possibilities - ANYTHING could happen

similar people in W Mass would also be nice but I seem to have lots of them already - though you can never have enough friends

and- while I specify that I'm looking for women, since I do love women - compatible men are welcome too

I am super-nice (but with an edge) , a bit quirky (and tolerant of your quirks), curious, intuitive, honest, open, pleasant, optimistic, and up for almost anything
What I’m doing with my life
I run a funky old movie house in a small arts-oriented village in New England - a publisher has just bought my first novel, a dark, noir-ish, but ultimately quite hopeful, mystery novel and I am busily doing revisions on it in anticipation of a publishing date next winter

I meditate 2 hours a day and do volunteer service at the local Vipassana Meditation Center - take 2 yoga classes a week

and I walk, walk, walk - all over this town and into the woods - let's walk around NYC - I love streets and neighborhoods and bars (though it is unlikely I will drink there) , and history and museums, and people
I’m really good at
sensing things, reading people, connecting with strangers, writing, loving
The first things people usually notice about me
actually few people notice me - I am spy-like and love to slip around un-noticed (which is difficult to do in a town where everyone knows me and I might as well be the freakin' mayor) - works better in NYC!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
for a writer, my interest in reading novels has withered a bit lately - real life seems so much more interesting!

still like films - go to everything from esoteric art films to popular blockbusters - but having good company to go with is more important than what I'm watching on the big screen

music? - love all kinds but sorta prefer silence these days
The six things I could never do without
existential angst
ironic detachment barely masking gentle hopes
wistful regrets for chances nearly missed
the illusion of falling from a great height
pining for the fjords
The Venerable Bede
tragic yearning
I spend a lot of time thinking about
God, man, woman, love, the meaning of life, Edna St Vincent Millay
On a typical Friday night I am
thinking about God, man, woman, love. the meaning of life, Edna St. Vincent Millay
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm poly.... poly-celibate - I love many people but do not have sex with any of them

let's talk about this over dinner or a long walk - I'm an open book and have no secrets but do have things which are better discussed in person
You should message me if
you are moved to
