My self-summary
I enjoy art, mainly classical music, chamber music, early music, serious films (maybe they were made for some purpose other than just profit; the director entertains at least some notion that it is art, or socially redeeming, no Hollywood "adventure"--just don't see 'em). Opera, theatre, and dance, too, when I can. I do not find organized sports of much interest (well, maybe a baseball game once or twice a year, maybe a world series game) and I do not watch much tv either. Mainly I listen to NPR radio, WHYY (although thriced-repeated programs annoy, as does paying its boss an exorbitant reportedly $700,000 salary for part-time work--and all the ads this requires on this allegedly ad-free station--I wouldn't give them a dime for this excessive compensation), WRTI-1 by day, WRTI-Channel 2 (on an HD radio) by night, and a newly found one, hard to get here, WWFM (89.1--or on the web).

I wouldn't know most celebs if we collided on the sidewalk, don't see most US-made mass market films, or tv series. (Why are they nearly all about cops, glorifying cops?)

I do like being outside, nature, trees, plants, animals, lakes, ocean beaches (late, when the rays are benign).

I am quite interested in good food and like both restaurants and cooking. Luckily, some genes seem to prevent obesity. A recently published persuasive large-scale medical study has caused a sudden reversal of my devotion to red meat; it's now a rarity in my life. Pity! But I'll just have to drink all this red wine anyway.

I am thoughtful, socially concerned, and very liberal, but may not share the p.c. view on certain issues.
Oh, and opinionated. (E.g., I care how people write, punctuate, spell, occasional sloppiness is fine, but ingrained misapprehensions about how certain words ought to look rankle.)
What I’m doing with my life
Making more time for myself, being retired. Wish you were here.

I prefer green to beige; tree-filled country lakes and rivers usually seem more enticing than beaches. Much of my time is in NYC. Is the sidewalk still beige, or too dirty to see?

My hair is a lighter shade, too: grey. (A sudden change, so the photos are otherwise accurate.)

I might add: the many who assert that they "play hard" kinda miss the point, I think, and do not entice me. That nearly makes it work, on which subject, and leisure versus "hard play", I recommend this recent essay: http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/09/08/work-good-or-bad/.

I am a devotee of news, public affairs, politics, spend considerable time reading and listening--sometimes complaining--expected a more liberal administration, not one so influenced by banking interests. And now Geithner's urging a cut in corporate tax rate!! (If they'd pay what the drafters of the Tax Code expected, that would be one thing. But the loopholes, usually put in by design, usually by a single or few congresspeople, frequently in return for what should be called a bribe, often make this seem a joke.)
I’m really good at
Questioning, I hope.
Questioning authority, for sure.
The first things people usually notice about me
?? Ask them.

Probably depends upon them at least as much as me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Intouchables. Go see it! And remember, if you ever must care for a handicapped person, that perhaps he'd rather take some chances and have some fun.** Also recently impressed by Incendies, although it's not fun to watch it.

** In fact, I think that we should all be more willing to take some chances. Our society has become one in which almost everyone is afraid to take a chance. Bike helmets--no breeze in your hair. (And a recent article notes that we have trouble getting many city folks to bike. In Europe they do not wear helmets, and many bike around town, to work, etc.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why this genius computer system keeps sending me people who say god is one (often the first, main) thing without which they can not live. That is one thing--perhaps the only thing--that I can not accept.

My favorite recent news item:

"Joanna Coles, the newly named editor in chief of Cosmopolitan magazine, a cool blonde, turned up wearing form-fitting black leather and looking like a contemporary version of Emma Peel

And Ms. Coles, though she had been on the new job just a day, was saying how she had already turned her attention to the Cosmo girl’s eternal dilemma.

“We all want more sex, and no one is getting enough,” Ms. Coles was saying, noting that the problem is perhaps more exaggerated here than elsewhere. And the reason, she said, may be that in New York people are so busy they forget to bookmark sex time in their day planners. Whereas in England, where she is from, people routinely head out in the evening with the expectation of drinking a great deal, going home and making love, although the term she used for the sex act was vintage Austin Powers.

And in New York and especially during Fashion Week, Ms. Coles, expanding on the subject, was saying, you can easily form an impression that the majority of people have altogether forgotten that one of the primary purposes of looking good in clothes is to attract the amatory interest of someone who might wish to help you remove them. “I’ve been thinking about this a lot,” Ms. Coles was remarking. “People don’t appreciate enough that sex is free. You don’t have to be rich to have great sex.”
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Google reads all your email, if you use Gmail, and tries to sell you stuff that you do not want.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 52–67
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You think we would like each other--that's first.
And enjoy some similar things,
and find each other attractive--that's necessary.

You would appreciate art, poetry, and a sense of the past, for example, sharing my admiration and pleasure in and being moved by an essay in last July's New Yorker that I've just read by Jill Lepore in filial devotion to her parents and tribute to Jane Franklin, a woman who died in 19th century america and thus was never taught to spell, nor expected to write, but who could nevertheless think, and correspond with one of the wisest men of the era, her brother Ben.

You want to actually meet soon, and not email for a long time.

Oh, and for a little later, you agree with Ms Coles.
