My self-summary
OCT 6 - I AM TAKING SOME TIME OFF FROM OK CUPID...SO PLEASE EXCUSE ME IF I DON'T RESPOND. R

High-profile but laid-back activist, back home in Brooklyn after many years abroad, and thoroughly enjoying my new life.

Born in Fort Greene Brooklyn. Leader in the anti-Vietnam War movement, Columbia Law School, then a life and career as an international human rights activist. I've travelled the world many times over (97 countries), first as a backpacker and then for work. Lived in Paris, Brussels, Geneva, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Congo and Haiti (but I plan to stay in Brooklyn now.)

I love the woods, the beach, and the mountains. And I'm very happy with my backyard and Prospect Park 1 block away.

("Clandestino" is an homage to Manu Chao. I realize now I need to explain that it wasn't meant as implying anything secretive about what I'm doing.)
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to change the world, raise a wonderful 13 year old boy and have fun.
I’m really good at
Making cats like me, even ornery ones.
Guessing the time.
Travel with and without maps.
Chess.
Not so good at tying my shoes.
The first things people usually notice about me
Deep red lips, mischievous smile, twinkle in the eye. When its cold, I wear a red scarf alot ( see photos),
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I think my favorite books would include ones that I have re-read recently like “Love in the Times of Cholera” by Gabriel García Márquez and "L'Étrange Destin de Wangrin" by the Malian writer Amadou Hampâté Bâ. Or books which I read with my father, who was a professor of Russian literature, like “War and Peace” and “Dr. Zhivago.” The Indian novels "The God of Small Things" and "A Suitable Boy." Camus is one of my heroes. For a long plane ride, I hope that the John Grisham novel I bought on the airport is one of his good ones. I just finished "Farewell Fred Voodoo" by Amy Wilentz when I went to Haiti and "The Art of Political Murder" by Francisco Goldman when I was in Guatemala. But I'm usually not so topical.

Movies - Anything by Almodovar, Jim Jarmusch, or the Coen Brothers. Jean de Florette, Pulp Fiction, African Queen, Casablanca, 12 Angry Men, Dersu Uzala, Hannah and her Sisters, The Bicycle Thief, Tree of the Wooden Clogs, the Roberto Benigni sketch from Night on Earth. Many years ago, I had the privilege of listening to the late Roger Ebert for 5 hours as he dissected the "Treasure of the Sierra Madre" frame by frame, so its a film I love to re-watch.

TV shows- Jon Stewart (of course), Democracy Now, Curb your Enthusiasm, Homeland, Breaking Bad.

Music - I grew up on Dylan and he's still my stand-by. As well as Neil Young, Joni etc. Now I mostly listen to Brazilian popular music, though. (MPB like Caetano Veloso, Milton, Chico Buarque, Gilberto Gil, Adriana Calcanhotto). I know much of George Brassens by heart, as I studied French to his lyrics. Ditto Paco Ibanez for Spanish. Love Cassandra Wilson and Diana Krall. I saw Leonard Cohen in concert recently and he was just amazing so I've been listening to him constantly, read his bio, and even think about him alot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to support my son, who (like me) moved back to the US this year and is having to adapt to a new universe including new friends, a new language of instruction (French before, he also speaks Portuguese from his mom), a new school system, adolescence, his parents' separation, etc.

How to do that while working on cases against torturers and ex-dictators in several countries.
On a typical Friday night I am
"A" Fridays - chillin' w my son
"B" Fridays - if I'm not travelling, I am probably hanging w friends
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You'll have to get to know me.
