I am an atheist.....my spirituality has to do with the beauty, complexity and diversity of the natural world.
I am a very left leaning liberal....both politically and socially.
I'm outgoing, like to meet and talk to all kinds of people.
My friends would describe me as very intelligent, sensitive, empathetic and generous with a dark, cynical? sense of humour. I like to help and be supportive of those with whom I am close. Some volunteer work......writers' festival. Love animals although I have no pets now for the first time in more than 40 yrs.
I like to be openly affectionate with my partner.....touching, holding hands sometimes while walking, kisses (not in public except a peck).
First career was 25 years in the IT telecommunications industry
Currently taking a hiatus from work except for small projects that interest me. Instead I've been designing/renovating the place I'm now living.
Spend a lot of time reading.....history, politics, literature.
Love going to movies and having dinners with friends either in restaurants or cooking for them.
Want to do more travelling in the next couple of years.
Would like to find a motorcycle riding companion for ambling along two lane roads and highways.
Interested in history, politics, movies, theatre.
Like indie, foreign movies and 'small' Hollywood movies.
The Lives of Others, Tell No One, I've Loved You So Long...dozens and dozens of great foreign movies as well as some current Hollywood and lots of older Hollywood.
Not typically interested in big blockbuster action movies.
Classical....Spanish composers...Granados, de Falla.
Dvorak, Prokofiev. Jazz...Gershwin, Ellington, Art Tatum, Coleman Hawkins, Bill Evans, Dexter Gordon, Bix Beiderbecke, Charlie Parker, Billie Holiday, Keith Jarrett...too many others.
I love animals...especially dogs....always had pets as a kid. As an adult had cats for many years then 6 dogs over a period of 30 yrs...typically 2 at a time. Miss them!
Intimacy, domesticity, nirvana like sex.
Close friends, books, movies, travel.
Like ambling along on country roads on my motorcycle.
Also like to take relaxed auto trips anywhere stopping here and there to see what's interesting.....in the country and in towns and cities. Stopping at lakes, rivers, ponds and just sitting there listening to nature....water, birds, wind, etc.
Or going to a movie and dinner
I consider it a character flaw of mine.
