A little about me...
"He felt that his whole life was some kind of dream and he sometimes wondered whose it was and whether they were enjoying it." ~Douglas Adams
I'm looking for a friend, someone to spend some time with and see what develops. I'm a realist, an independent free thinker and I'm also an easy going type of guy. I don't sweat the small stuff and try my best with the big. It seems that one way or another I'm able to roll with the punches and find a way to keep things in check. I'm quite friendly, very easy to talk with and get along well with most everyone. I have great sense of humor and can find it in almost anything. I enjoy anything to do with the outdoors, hiking, strolling through a park, the tranquility of sitting by a lake, driving to places unknown off the beaten path and discovering all there is to find. I love music. All types of music in almost every genre, everything from Segovia to Bocelli, Billie to Sinatra, Jack Johnson to Robert Johnson, Marc Cohn, to Joe Bonamassa. I miss the live music, making your way into a little blues joint or a small intimate place to hear a guitar or piano player.
About the one I'm looking for...
I play myself (keyboard) and maybe that's why I enjoy it so much. I also write my own material or at least make the attempt. It's a personal thing for me. Some people write their thoughts in a journal. I play mine on a keyboard.
The woman I hope to meet should come from a good and decent family where she was brought up with an abundance of love and has respect for her parents and they for her. Like myself, she has a good set of morals, is kind, loving, understanding and respectful to others that deserve it. She will be comfortable communicating openly and freely without the fear of being judged. She will know compassion, honesty, understand the true meaning of unconditional, of a word called loyalty and the importance of always having each others back. She will have a sense of humor which at times borders on the absurd and where she can laugh till she can't anymore, but always manages to do so. She'll enjoy good intelligent conversation.. (Very Important!) She will understand that intimacy is an integral part of a relationship, but it's only one part of many. (and it's a great stress reliever, good for your heart and can increase your lifespan!...lol...those are true).......
I'd just like to add...
She will be hoping to find a real love in her life with a man where her world becomes his own and her happiness becomes his priority because he lives for that smile.
I will say that I don't need someone to "complete me" because I'm already complete as a human being. I'm happy, content and have a positive outlook on life. I'm hoping to meet a woman to share my love with, who doesn't give it away that easily because I don't and who knows how hard it is to find just as I do. I've never been one to keep certain doors closed, meaning I don't care what you have or don't have. For me, that's never been what's important. What is, is that which makes you the beautiful woman that you are, your heart and soul.
Now, I haven't worked in 12 years. (Lower back surgery that I refused) That's not to say I didn't bust my tail everyday to get ahead. I am not a slacker by any sense of the imagination. I worked for a PC manufacturer. When bad times hit, they closed the manufacturing division. I was the only one they kept giving me a position in the corporate office. That should give you some idea. We're dealt a hand in life. You have to make the best with what you've got. Wish things went differently, but it is what it is.

News and Politics
We have to stay up to date on current events. Unfortunately, we don't get from the mainstream media, the stories that are most important and that contain factual truths. Today, what we need is a lot more investigative journalism, but the government that extremely difficult and which I find extremely disturbing. I love my country. It's the government I can't stand. I strongly feel this country's gone mad and I converse with my representatives in DC and no, I'm not a Tea Party crackpot.
