My self-summary
The first thing I am is an artist (writer/composer/director) of music/theater'ish performance and short videos. It's not music/theater along the lines of Cats or Oklahoma! or West Side Story in the sense of linear narrative. But there are monologues and dialogues and songs and visuals. Laurie Anderson might be the closest comparison—plus we share the same birthday.

By day, I work as a librarian.

Far more importantly, I am an enthusiast of cities, clouds, trees, dogs, neon tetras, music, films, art. I really love snow, blizzards make me happy.. I like the stillness of winter because it feels like time has frozen and people are usually nicer to each other.

I am always inquisitive and inspired by the world outside my comfort zone. I kind of thrive upon that. Although the comfort zone is a nice place to hang out once in a while.

I have a way of finding humor in most things... maybe not everything... maybe about 59% of everything. But sarcasm is something i try to avoid at all costs. I much prefer the absurd, which you can see if you ever attend one of my performances.

I am ultimately looking for a long-term relationship, but I would also be happy to have some new friends to pal around with
What I’m doing with my life
Adjusting to my relocation from Chicago to Boston and then to Providence. Well, not really that big an adjustment. I'm actually a dual citizen since I work 5 days/week in Boston and dwell in Providence. Working on some art projects (stories, videos, and songs). Exercise on foot or in water or at the gym. Trying to remember to meditate. And the day gig. And trying to connect it all.
I’m really good at
ping pong. active listening. composing. day-dreaming. dog-walking. stirring things for my friends who like to cook. Getting better at organizing my carry-on baggage to get through airport security more expeditiously.
The first things people usually notice about me
My tallness. And I get lots of compliments about my glasses.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A random list that will probably change by the time I save this profile.

Books: Franny and Zooey, The Sense of an Ending, Kafka's diaries, Warhol's diaries, The Little Prince; The Oxford Rhyming Dictionary, The Brothers Karamazov, Art and Lies, The History of Love, Chronicles (Dylan), The Rest is Noise... gosh, I know I am leaving out the most important ones, but I can't think of them at this moment. .

"Tomorrow Never Knows" is currently my favorite Beatles song, probably because it's playing in the background while I type this sentence.

TV: Binge-watching whatever people suggest on Netflix or Amazon, basketball, Rachel Maddow.

Food: sushi, anything with salmon, or water, or chocolate, or Indian, or really anything without bleu cheese or mushrooms
Six things I could never do without
my various communities of friends, family and friendly acquaintances
dreams and dream interpretation
water, trees, clouds, stars, air
an openness to all possibilities
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what to do next, who to invite, and how to get there
On a typical Friday night I am
hungry? surprised? waifish? open to most things?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm capable of getting lost, even with GPS voice navigation, but sometimes this works out just perfectly.
You should message me if
you do not mind me being me
The two of us
