I'm kind of a country boy, apparently marooned on planet Earth from my native planet. Country sensibilities, come from simple farmers and teachers in Italy. I think of cities as places to visit for attractions, but not places to live, because they are detached from Nature, and inhospitable for gentler soul.
Admirer of Jorge Bergoglio and Tenzin Gyatso.
I have a financially comfortable, busy, full life, missing only romantic companion. Looking to share with the right woman, kindred in spirit - educated, or becoming so; compassionate; affectionate, playful, thin to avg body-type, and "wickid smaht". :-)
6', 185 lbs., 53, full wavy gray hair with a few black strands surviving; close-cut facial hair 2nd generation Italian/Austrian ethnicity, athletic body-type, sprinter/strength training; never smoked or drugs; don't drink; divorced 3yrs, no children; intellectual, An abd PhD in grad-study; former student for monastic life; reserved personality, idealist, practical, playful; teacher; small-scale residential real estate investor; believer in Eastern philosophies; vegetarian; and trying to become a writer of social commentary.
If you are interested, like to know more, please let me know. If we make it past the email/phone-talk stage, I'll treat for dinner at a nice restaurant, to see if we might have the beginnings of some romantic chemistry to rescue us both from the urban singles jungle.
If we do, we'll follow the pathways of life that beckon us - nice restaurants, weekend trips, hiking and exploring natural places, museums, music, movies, escaping the city to my Cape house in a village on Nantucket Sound, sailing a little dingy, and of course, flying kites. :-)
