I am aware of time, of things past, of things to come. I love life
and count its passing seconds.
I am kind, perceptive, and educated.
For today I tell myself: Be grateful, diligent and kind. Do not be
angry, do not worry.
What I’m doing with my life
At the end of the day, Titus the son of Vespasian, would ask
himself if his day had been well lived. If he had wasted a day he
would cry. Life is short.
I’m really good at
Friendship, creativity, analysis, and bringing joy to my
Though, a loving and kind man, I am not foolish to think that
is that simple or kind. It is complex and I welcome its ups
downs with a calm countenance.I am steady in my outlook in life.
The first things people usually notice about me
Thick and dark hair [no hair dyes] with some gray, dark eyes. If
you like me for what you read and I like you from your writing , we
could exchange some more photos.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Don Quixote, The Magic Mountain, Absalom, Absalom, La peste, For
whom the bells toll, 100 years of solitude, Potemkin, Rules of the
game, Citizen Kane, Pulp Fiction, La donna e mobile, Tosca, Fado,
Merecumbe, boleros, anything French or Italian foodie.
The six things I could never do without
This list is not made of things. They are in my blood and soul, they are my essence. Without them I am lost: My children, relatives, & friends. Love, pencil and paper, good health, and dreams. When I am awake I dream that I am dreaming, and when I dream, I think I am awake. It helps my imagination.
The making of a home, designing a new home and filling it with laughter and kindness.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, dreams, friends, books, the perfect word.
There is nothing more perfect than the beginning of Dante's
Inferno: Nel mezzo del cammin di nostra vita me ritrovai per una
selva oscura que la diritta via era smarrita. Dante finds himself
lost in middle age and is trying to find a direction for his life,
because the straight path is lost.
Being outdoors: Looking at the sky if its going to be a nice day,
and if it is going to rain, to make the best of it, by dancing in
My loves, those people whom I love.
On a typical Friday night I am
Designing, drawing, reading, or at a dinner party sharing stories
with friends. My father loved to tell stories and jokes, and I have
his watered down genes for story telling.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
In public I am ultra private, in private, I am very open and
I am told I speak softly.
You should message me if
you think we might have the chemistry that eludes us.
