Endlessly fascinated by good food and lively conversation...I love to be engaged in topics ranging from history to art, politics to philosophy, practical to the inane. Pretty verbal I'd have to say, but atuned to the unuttered conversations as well...
I love a man who inhabits his life well and freely shares his enthusiasms with others. A tactile man who loves to kiss (am I describing me or him? ideally both...)
What I’m doing with my life
At this point I'm interested in creating and maintaining balance:

Zarzuelas (Monserrat Caballe)

The six things I could never do without
Farmers markets (odd, but I love 'em), singing and vocal music,
quiet time alone, engaging intellectual challenges, contact with
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how I'd fix the world (if they'd let me...)
On a typical Friday night I am
giving or going to a dinner party; seeing a play, film or concert;
having a good connection with a date (which of course I'm searching
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm surprised to realize I'm as old as I am, but I don't think I'd
give up any of my past.
You should message me if
you're interested in: engaging conversation, meeting some of my
interesting and talented friends, spending time with someone who
enjoys receiving and giving good attention.
