My self-summary
At 72, my grandfather met a cute little number - a never- At 72, my grandfather met a cute little number - a never-married, recently retired 65 year old high school English teacher. They fell crazy in love, spent 30 years like newlyweds. (My grandfather lived to be 109.)
Maybe that's why I'm not ready to give up quite yet.

Paul Simon's brother used this relationship analogy when discussing Paul and Carrie Fisher's divorce: you can have a flower and a gardener, or two gardeners, but you can't have two flowers. I'm a gardener, looking for another: a same-aged, bright eyed, fresh thinking best friend and lover interested in cultivating some lasting mutual happiness.

Honest and direct, whole-hearted and empathic, quick to laugh, awash in joie de vivre. Come from an expressive, visually attuned family of creators and 'do-ers' who take pride in what they've accomplished on any given day, who naturally gravitate to studios and workshops. Clueless re: pop culture - don't own a tv, malls depress me - prefer to live as if originality counts. Don't ski, play golf or tennis (a 30-year marriage taught me the best relationships leave room for non-shared pursuits) but love outdoor life - kayaking, swimming, planting, biking/walking/hiking anywhere. A 'toucher' when conversing, a spontaneous smoocher, quick to show appreciation for kindness and special efforts, my guy will never lack for attention or affection. Financially independent - the career's been good to me - have raised two adult daughters to be critical thinkers, ethical people.

Men I find attractive tend to be a cerebral AND okay with saying "heck, I don't know" when asked something they've never really thought about. I go for guys who prefer being kind to always being right, the quieter guys who listen as much as they speak, and do both as if it mattered. Someone who laughs throughout the day, finding the world and the humans therein both nuts AND amusing. Someone who's weathered a long term relationship before, and has the energy and desire to commit again.

Does this resonate? If so, please drop a line to introduce yourself.
What I’m doing with my life
Long, mostly wonderful career in print production/creative services management in Boston ad agencies and corporations.
I’m really good at
Nationally ranked deck and dock sitter: kayaking, swimming, collecting aquatic flora and fauna, or as a great T shirt I recently saw reads: "Loves poetry, long walks on the beach at sunset, and poking dead things with a stick."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Love Plough+Stars late Sunday afternoon for live R+B, Wed evening at Toad for same. Documentaries, indie gems at the Kendall a treat. Watching dogs swim at Fresh Pond never fails to amuse. Alice Munroe, Lionel Schriver, Jhumpa Lahiri, John Updike, Barbara Kingsolver, David Rakoff, A.M. Homes, and just fell in love with Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche. NYT and New Yorker. Tedeschi Trucks, Marian McPartland, Mavis Staples, and Aretha/Motown, of course.
On a typical Friday night I am
Pooped. Apoplectic. Comatose. Smooch my forehead, tuck me in. But be ready for Saturday break of dawn!
