My description:

I am a left leaning, right brained, bread-loving, published writer(fiction and poetry) and occasional musician. I live for traveling (Brazil and Iceland on tap for this year); hiking, backpacking, scrambling, snowshoeing, cycle touring, music (especially jazz and soul and R&B), and underwater crochet.   I'm a vegan for ethical and environmental reasons. All life forms deserve to exist as much as we do. Health benefits of being a vegan a bonus. I try to buy organic and local whenever possible. Silence of the Lambs, the movie, changed my life. When Hannibal Lecter extracts Clarissa's traumatic memory of the lambs being slaughtered, something clicked in my brain. Promptly read Peter Singer's Animal Liberation soon after and never looked back. 

Throw me a toasted bagel, Cafe Mosaics pumpkin pie(best in the universe), and some black licorice occasionally and I'll be one very happy camper.

People who know me appreciate my occasionally goofy sense of humor, although I can be serious as a Bergman film if need be.  Sometimes shy around new people, although I enjoy performing in public(music or literary readings). Been told I'm a very good listener. Not much of a party guy. Don't always look (or act) my age, in a good way. Some of my other interests include reading and film, and I also practice yoga and try to exercise daily, especially my biceps.  

A respect and appreciation for nature and the other inhabitants of this shared planet is key to my world view.

A few favorite films: 2001: A Space Odyssey, Manhattan, Casablanca, Heat, Godfather II, Blade Runner, La Mort En Direct, Tintin
A few favorite writers: Ian McEwan, Iris Murdoch, Margaret Atwood, David Goodis, Ray Bradbury, Joyce Carol Oates
A few favorite bands/musicians: Police, Keith Jarrett, Miles, Aretha, Sade, Bruce Cockburn, RVW, Vivaldi, Bat for Lashes, Beyonce
A few favorite local eats: Noorish, Cafe Mosaics, Padmanadi's.

Seeking:

I would like to connect with a woman who shares some of my interests and passions, and can maybe introduce me to some of her own. In the past, I have been drawn to thoughtful, introverted women, but I am open to discovering something new, too.   Opposites sometimes attract with good reason. It would be great if she were fit and active, into movies and/or books and music, walks and rides taken in and out of the park. I'd love to connect on a deeply spiritual level and share the best of what this wonderful world has to offer. I'd also like to help keep you happy and healthy.
