I was born in Southern France, on the French Riviera, and
emmigrated to the US with my family in 1961.
I received my education in Fresno, and did my graduate work at
I taught school for 14 years. I was a teacher of French at a public
high school, then at a private college preparatory school, and at
UCSB. I left teaching in 1991, and opened my own business in
I raised 7 children, who are now grown and independent.
I live alone, and looking to change that.
What I’m doing with my life
I am always learning, especially about aspects of the mind and
spirit. I am planning trips to beautiful places: the Tahitian and
Galápagos Islands, the Peruvian Amazon, Italy, Spain,
I enjoy learning to play golf, sailing in Morro Bay, flying where
my heart desires. Someday I'll settle down and cultivate my own
garden of flowers, vegetables, and fruit trees. Ah, the joys of
eating the fruits of your labor!
I’m really good at
Listening, helping, analyzing, thinking, feeling, working hard and
long hours if needed, being loyal,
keeping secrets others confide in me, achieving my goals.
The first things people usually notice about me
My nice smile, and attentive eyes, my slight French accent,
my professional demeanor in public.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books/magazines: science, spirituality, shamanism, near death
experiences, sailing, golf, travel, nature. Emerson, Voltaire,
Rousseau, Edgar Cayce, Eckhart Tolle,
Movies: I prefer the ones based on true stories, or about nature,
science. Some past favorites: 2001 A Space Odyssey, Amadeus, March
of the Penguins...
Music: I love flamenco music: Segovia, Carlos Montoya,Ottmar
Liebert, Paco de Lucia. In the classical category, Mozart is my
favorite. "Classic",or soft rock of the 1960's era is good. No Rap,
or whiny country-western, please!!!!!!!!!
Food: I eat most foods of the world, although I am starting to pay
some attention to eating a health oriented diet. Darn it!!!I love
French pastries so much!
The six things I could never do without
I can do without things, but I would prefer a comfortable mattress
to sleep on, a hot shower daily, a reliable car, an iPhone, clothes
to wear, and enough money to enjoy it all.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how wonderful it would be to share the rest of my life in joy,
happiness, and adventures with a woman partner.
On a typical Friday night I am
at this time, usually supervising my employees at the pizzeria.
But, I would rather be in your company.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
This Scorpio is completely private except with the one he loves.
You should message me if
...you are so inclined. I do not contact or respond to women who do
not post clear, current photos of themselves.
