Who am I? I suspect that no two people would describe me the same way. So I don't know who I will be to you. But there are some things that I believe that may help you decide whether to risk having lunch with me.
"When you stop learning, you start dying" - I learn something new every day and was 16 the last time I knew everything.
"Chance favors the prepared" - Serendipity happens to all of us, all day, every day. Whether you gets the "breaks in life" depends on how open you are to the possibilities around you.
"Wherever you go, there you are" - This life is all you get, this is not practice, and there are no "do-overs".
"Life is uncertain, eat dessert first" - There is always time to do the chores, but if you do not make time to smell the flowers, you will spend your whole life doing chores. Is that how you want to live?
"Lead, Follow, or Get Out of the Way" - Don't dither. If you are not actively involved with what's happening, then get out of the way of those who are involved.
"Woulda', Coulda', Shoulda' is for Whiners" - Life and Time only move forward. Since you can't go back and change what is in the past, beating yourself up for a past decision is pointless. Nobody has perfect information, so every decision has some uncertainty. Make the best decision you can and then get on with life.
"Do not do to others what you would not have done to you." It comes from a Rabbi 700 years ago and is central to my worldview and the way I deal with people. This is NOT the Christian Golden Rule. The essential difference is that the Christian Golden Rule is based on doing to others with the expectation that they will reciprocate. In other words, trying to control their behavior. The only person I control is me. What actions I take are up to me. How you respond to my actions is up to you.
If any of this appeals to you, let me know. If nothing here appeals to you, have a good life.
The only dancing I know how to do is slow dancing in the dark, just like in high school. I tried dancing lessons but it is not for me.
I'm a very handy guy and love making things, especially for friends and neighbors. I suppose it is the "engineer flaw" in my character. When I'm not out in the shop or puttering in the yard, I'm propped up on the back porch reading, I'll read just about anything. As a constant backdrop to working and reading I love listening to music. All kinds of music ranging from Anonymous 4 to ZZ Top.
What I'm Looking For
I'm looking to meet people for conversation and friendship. Each of us has a list, either concrete or locked in our head, that describes "the perfect someone". My list is fairly short and is amenable to change. There are very few absolutes in my world. So here goes:
Engaged in the world
"Gets the jokes"
Does not live at the center of the universe
Accepts that life has more gray than black & white
See, my list is not very long. How 'bout your list?
The only way to know if I fit your list is for us to talk.
