How about we… Take advantage of the new free admission of the Dallas Museum of Art and share a glass of wine after our visit.
How about we… Try Moroccan food at the Medina Oven & Bar. Great place.
How about we… Explore the new Perot Museum of Nature & Science and share impressions of the Thom Mayne-designed building.
An awesome place I've visited:
Oregon coast. Rocky, awe-inspiring and unrelenting power. I'm a sea kayaker and the immensity of the Pacific as I sat a mile offshore in my boat was a moment to remember.
My perfect Sunday:
Wake up next to someone warm. Serve her coffee in bed and then we take a walk. Give her a massage in the afternoon with a light, warm breeze assisting my hands. Nap and then work a bit, as we both are passionately engaged in our professions. Light dinner by candlelight. Part ways with a kiss.
The movie I've watched the most times:
Thomas the Tank Engine. My now teenager of a son was a train man big time.
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
Small town boy meets the University of Chicago, works hard and things happen. Passionate lawyer and writer result. Add Aikido and high-level sea kayaking for fun and "spiritual" sustenance. Wife (now 1,000 miles away), son (living with me) and open marriage complete the picture. It is now time to turn to deeper engagements--professional, personal and pleasurable.
My first concert / My dream concert:
Jon Hassell/Ambient/electronics concert that puts you on that weird boundary between sleep and heightened consciousness.
Obscure knowledge I possess:
The secrets of performing a bow rudder.
I have a weakness for guys/girls who:
Girls--especially librarian types--who like to be treated like a Goddess and enjoy pushing boundaries.
For me, a first date no-no is:
Jumping to conclusions.
What I would bring to show and tell:
Well-worn nautical charts showing the course of some of my kayaking wilderness trips on the Great Lakes.
A story you should remind me to tell you on our first date:
My welcome to first grade. Tells a lot about my early days and background.
I secretly want to be:
A Lady's special friend. One who makes her feel loved, listened to, well touched and nicely served. Someone valued for discretion and non-possessiveness.
I want to be with someone who wants to be:
Treated with respect.
An infatuation of mine:
I am a very able masseur and love the female form both clothed and unclothed. The feminine energy that comes from each woman on my massage table is life-giving.
If I won the lottery and quit my job, I would:
Start a foundation to facilitate the transition to a smarter, more connected transportation system.
One thing my mother would want you to know about me:
I am a good boy.
I want to come home to:
Intellectual curiosity, good cheer, hard work, honesty. . . and maybe a pot of black bean soup bubbling on the stove with fresh bread and a creme brûlée in waiting..
