I'm 46, male, been divorced for about six years, a son at the age of thirteen, and interested in many things such as music, preferably jazz and blues (Brand X, John Abercrombie, John McLaughlin, Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday, Tom Waits and so many more), movies, mostly scifi, horror and action.
I am also into gardening, or atleast I was until the divorce where I lost my garden...and my house. Yes, well.. things come and go.
Now I grow spices and ivy on my balcony. I'm looking for Nasturtium, will be nice on my arc on the balcony.
If you share any of my interests, or just want to chat, please feel free to flork me.

"A cab combs the snake,
Tryin' to rake in that last night's fare,
And a solitary sailor
Who spends the facts of his life like small change on strangers...
Paws his inside Peacoat pocket for a welcome twenty-five cents,
And the last bent butt from a package of Kents,
As he dreams of a waitress with Maxwell House eyes
And marmalade thighs with scrambled yellow hair.
Her rhinestone-studded moniker says, "Irene"
As she wipes the wisps of dishwater blonde from her eyes
And the Texaco beacon burns on,
The steel-belted attendant with a 'Ring and Valve Special'...
Cryin' "Fill'er up and check that oil"
"You know it could be a distributor and it could be a coil."
The early mornin' final edition's on the stands,
And that town cryer's cryin' there with nickels in his hands.
Pigs in a blanket sixty-nine cents,
Eggs - roll 'em over and a package of Kents,
Adam and Eve on a log, you can sink 'em damn straight,
Hash browns, hash browns, you know I can't be late.
And the early dawn cracks out a carpet of diamond
Across a cash crop car lot filled with twilight Coupe Devilles,
Leaving the town in a-keeping
Of the one who is sweeping
Up the ghost of Saturday night... "
Tom Waits; The Ghosts Of Saturday Night (After Hours At Napoleone's Pizza House)
