I'm curious and inquire often. During dinner parties I wonder off and read books in the library or talk to kids. Sometimes I think the best person for me, is someone similar, kind of artsy and full of surprises, childlike and funny, but then again, slower more methodical people intrigue me. I love to hear family stories told over decades, revealing the personalities of folks and their foibles. I'm working on moving at a bit slower pace, even though I'm usually building things in my old warehouse and on the go with my design projects. I am not going to retire in the traditional sense, I'm almost sure.....but then life throws us curveballs and maybe I'd go live in another country. I like to listen to records. The Modern Jazz Quartet Last Concert album has me mesmerized right now. I like industrial stuff from the turn of the last century and collect and sell. I'm energetic and easily excited with new materials or methods of construction. I like to go to the city late at night and check out the nightcrawlers...listen to blues, walk unknown streets and drink coffee in North Beach.
I get up in the early morning and hike the hills of Marin. I feel extremely lucky to be living on the edge of a hill with a beautiful view of the bay.
I'm pretty bad at meeting people on internet sites. I find the process so tedious that often I'm a pain in the ass about setting a date. So I'll apologize up front. Unless you are a bit innovative, I'll probably wonder off like a lost child. Here's my problem: I'm a lion if you distract me without something to say. I'm not good with small talk, but people seem to like me because I have a wide group of friends and most of them are as crazy as me. Go figure...
Where is the man who is happy to be alone with themselves so I can play by myself? I know that sounds weird, oh well...but where are you? I want to meet someone who loves to share what they do and will spend hours talking about things, other people put to bed after three sentences. (with breaks in between for *%@(::(@%. Is that you? Here's the big number one: After witnessing the jelly fish in the Monterey Aquarium, would you walk over the tide pools with me? That's not asking a lot is it?
-Still believing you're out there.
