Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a man who is very much alive, vibrant, curious, passionate and
empathetic. I am looking for a like-minded woman. I want to form a
bond—something real and strong and lasting.
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."

So many books, so little time. From Heart of Darkness to Seabiscuit
to Hemingway's short stories. I have entire wall full of
friends--i. e., books. Music? All kinds, really. Blues, opera,
jazz...whoops, add rap and heavy metal to the "no" category. Food?
Love so many types of cuisines. So many good things to eat. I love
