I read today that a writer was given advice by a mentor when the writer was young. The advice was, "Discover something new every day." I believe in that. I love books and reading. I write and I teach and so art, all art, is important to me.
I have a daughter I'm nuts about. And very proud of. Being her dad has been, and is, a privilege.
I am in body and spirit closer to 50. The photos are current, they are the reality. So, what I'm saying is, see if there's something here that resonates with you, with your head and your heart.
I am not a huge Saints fan, cannot drive a tractor or a back hoe. But I can make you laugh. I like the outdoors, but not to hunt. I love nature. I love mornings.
I'm an enthusiastic dog guy.
I believe in compassion, courage and love.
I like to travel. I lived in France for a year, in a small village. Before I came to New Orleans, I lived in New York happily for thirty years. I want intimacy. I want passion. I want a woman who wants that, too. Enthusiastically. I want to laugh with her. I mean, hearty, almost out-of-control laughter. I want someone who appreciates the short glorious present we've been given, these rich years here. In short, I want to spend my time with someone I'm impossibly attracted to and who I can go all in with. Because, as we know, it's still a gamble, isn't it? I'll end with some lyrics from Joni Mitchell's great record, "Blue": "All that I really want our love to is to bring out the best in me and in you."
