Hey, when did this nest get all emptied out? It got quiet around
here suddenly. I'm a new semi-retiree, who likes to be out and
about, enjoying the scenery. Ready for new people, new ideas,
perhaps a bit of romance?? Isn't it about time we met?
I really like conversation, dry wit, and people with ideas and
imagination. My favorite gents are smart, friendly, sociable,
easy-going types who know how to make dinner. Love that. Sense of
What I’m doing with my life
I'm spending as much time as I can with friends and family because
love is the most important thing there is. I teach that culture is
important and not just something that sits in museums. Over the
past two years I've walked hundreds of miles photographing urban
landscape. I sing early music in local choirs.
And I'm planning a wake for a beautiful apple tree that can't be
saved. Any suggestions?
I’m really good at
Teaching, joking, listening, explaining pictures, barbecuing, and
making roast chicken.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair, my laugh, and depending upon what kind of person you are,
my cute shoes.
And I'm a fast walker, "the stride of an 8-foot man".
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite music: Monteverdi, Bach, Mozart, Praetorius. It is ok if
you don't know who Praetorius is. Eclectic tastes in most things.
Last night tuned into a show about Shreveport blues and a late 19th
Century opera. Favorite movies: Born Yesterday with Judy Holiday
(not the remake), Roman Holiday, The Mystery of Kaspar Hauser,
Nights on Earth, In the Shadow of the Stars.
TV: Downton Abbey, Call the Midwife. Will watch baseball only
during the post-season.
The six things I could never do without
My kids, my friends, singing, my laptop, my camera, beer. Coffee
makes seven, but who cares?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Art, writing, and how to teach these things. I think about singing,
how to do it better, how to do it more often and how enjoyable all
that is. I think about my kids and my friends; and the meals,
trips, and activities we can share. I worry about the slugs in my
garden eating up my vegetables and flowers. And I wonder when
you're going to get in touch!
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I haven't lied about my age since I was too young to order a beer.
You should message me if
you're ready to start a conversation. It doesn't have to be reeking
with heaviosity. Let's see if we have fun talking, and then see
