My self-summary
Here's a decision funnel for you:
- You believe men and women are political, economic, and social equals. But of course.
- You're looking for a full-on package of smarts, style, and wit, cuz heck! that's what you're bringing to the table.
- You expect a whole bunch of giving as well as getting, a real partnership, both of us all in, building something exceptional.
- You're hoping for this is the relationship that carries you to the end.

Still with me?

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.) One rational reason why I haven't given up yet.

Honest and direct, whole-hearted, intuitive, empathic, quick to laugh, passionate about living consciously and well. Nonstop reader, NPR listener, I love daily quiet time. Come from a family where academics trumped athletics, 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 - I prefer progressive thinking to conventional wisdom. Don't ski, play golf or tennis (a 30-year marriage taught me the best relationships leave room for non-shared pursuits) but thrive outdoors - kayaking, swimming, planting, biking/walking/hiking anywhere. A 'toucher' when conversing, a spontaneous smoocher, quick to show appreciation for kindness and emotional generosity, my partner will never lack for attention, affection, stuff to laugh about. Financially independent - the career's been good to me - have raised two adult daughters to be critical thinkers, ethical, kind people.

Men I find attractive are both warm and worldly wise, who know not to start their profiles with "I'm intelligent and handsome." I go for guys who prefer exploring differences, finding common ground over winning the argument. Someone who chuckles throughout the day, sees 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!
