Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Left-wing semi-intellectual, I like bicycling, walking in Prospect
Park, just lying on my back and watching the clouds drift by. I
exercise enough to keep my weight reasonable, not as much as I'd
like to or should. I like staying home and cooking big meals for my
friends (fancy dishes are cream of asparagus soup with salmon and
dill, served before duck stuffed with orange and mango, but most of
the time I cook meals that taste like nourishment, from recipes
taught me by my mom), movies, music, blues and jazz. Raised two
beautiful (see photo) kids, now grown, on their own, and doing
fabulously. When, in high school, they started using my place as a
crash pad I realized I had to be something more than their father
and picked up a guitar I had set down about thirty years before.
Haven’t set an instrument down since. Many friends are musicians. I
have a regular free jam with a few of them every Friday. Another
regular jam at my place Sundays, temporarily suspended until I
renovate my coop. Band rehearsal Wednesday. Picked up a double bass
about a year ago, no longer a beginner, but already able to keep up
with some serious amateur and semi-pro players.
I’m not a lightweight. I work steadily, live a healthy lifestyle, I
read serious literature, mostly non-fiction. I’m always there for
my kids and for friends who need me.
I'm looking for a mature woman, someone who's lived, loved, lost.
Someone stronger than the pain of disappointment and courageous
enough to dare to love in spite of it all. Baggage is OK - it's
another word for experience. I'm looking for someone intelligent,
accomplished, mentally and physically active. Be open to growth, to
new experience, to the unexpected. Looking for long-term and
meaningful, not looking for a fling. I'd like best to date someone
local, but it doesn't have to be a Brooklynite. I have a local
circle of friends, love it, and want to add to it.
I'm a basic teeshirtandjeans guy. Clean up somewhat (tweed short
jacket) but there's no spit 'n polish to me.
Sorry so few photos - I don't photograph well and I don't like
sitting for or taking photographs. The first one of me is about a
year old. The one of the children is about ten years old.
