Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Interested in the arts and sciences - painting, music, poetry, even
economics, the list goes on. Reasonably well-educated and may get
along best with other educated people. Self-employed and make my
own schedule. Like to get out to Maine, go downhill skiing,
bicycling, travel abroad several times a year. Not much of a sports
fan. Have two great children, one in med school, another in college
studying something equally useful. Could have more with the right
person, but quite happy enough with the first two. No list of
"requirements" for the other person. Best thing to do is just meet
and see how we get on. Relationships take work and need to be
built. Just be pleasant to live with, most of the time, not even
all the time.

There isn't one favorite, or even a top ten list, but here are a
few examples -- The Golden Gate (a novel in verse) by Vikram Seth,
David Sedaris when he reads it out loud himself, movies "Galaxy
Quest" and " The Incredibles", Bach's Goldberg Variations,
Schubert's Impromptus (I can play some of them, or I could at one
time) and as for food, anything but live octopus. That's where I
draw the line on food adventures. They stick to the roof of your
mouth. I don't watch much TV but the new "Sherlock" series is
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My two children of course, even if they can live without me, a
personal assistant, some decent art on the walls, stimulating
conversation, The Cloud, and true and everlasting love. Of course
at one time or another I've had to do without one or more of these
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Other than work, good subjects for a painting. Of course if were in

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There are no typical Friday nights, but on Thursdays I sing with
the Cambridge Chamber Singers, and Mondays I have a painting studio
at the MFA School.
