My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Vibrant, smart, and a city buff. Am a professor at a large university, active in groups involved with New York City streets, parks, and public art and buildings. My fantastic son is starting his career as a violist and strings teacher. I'm a lucky gal. In shape, too, very much so. I've got verve: do you?

I seek steady, electrical companionship of some sort, and regular contact and conversation with the right person. That doesn't mean joined at the hip, but something grounded in mutual trust, respect, and erotic charge.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Revising a book manuscript, reading, running, walking, pondering, civic cultural advocating, and occasionally statue-climbing.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Keeping up my end of the conversation; public speaking; speaking my mind--but in a nice way! Staying fit; kissing; keeping the bathroom clean.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Seems to be the hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Art: *All* of it. Intrigued even when it's not to my taste. But if you asked for my favorite, I'd have to say Poussin, okay?

Books: Prefer biographies and humanities-oriented scholarly non-fiction. On my desk: a history of the National Gallery of Art, a book on architecture, the interior environment, and urban crisis. Now listening to Ovid's Metamorphosis and The Shallows. Just read "The Most Dangerous Book in the World" (a bio of Joyce's Ulysses), which was wonderful.

Movies--Highbrow old stuff: Renoir, Cocteau, Fellini, Welles--that kind of thing. Billy Wilder and the Marx Brothers. I could list many many individual favorites from 1922 onward, but you're not on here to read a laundry list. Saw "The Lunchbox" on an airplane recently, and found it quite interesting: a kind of OKC story Mumbai style.

Music: Stravinsky, Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Mahler, Lang, Reich, Carter, Tchaikovsky, Dvorak, Barber, Britten, Elgar, and other usual suspects. Presently on a Ralph Vaughn Williams jag.

-New York City Ballet (Balanchine/Robbins only, pretty much. No Peter Martins!!!)
-American Ballet Theater (preferably not Petipa. Zzzzzz.)

Hooked on podcasts (from Librivox.org to MacBreak Weekly, Leonard Lopate, and my hero, Dan Savage). I listen to them while running uphill in Prospect Park.

TV: only what I can watch with an antenna. Am not chomping at the bit to watch anything without Jon Hamm in it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Love and affection.
Exercise.
My son.
New York City.
Museums.
Reading matter.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- Cities and what makes them look the way that they do.

- Sex and relationships among the single, the married, and the separated, in middle age (maybe in the Middle Ages, too). How profiles and images relate to all of these negotiations.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At MoMA or the Met.

Walking up Court and down Smith to stand in line at Trader Joe's.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I'm 61. So sue me.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you're interested in a woman who is lithe, spirited, articulate, enthusiastic, and intermittently droll. You're pretty damn smart and slightly laid back in demeanor. You appreciate irony and have a bit of an edge. Though not necessarily.
