I'm a professional in arts and culture with a naturally slender build, and find cultural awareness and a slender physique very attractive. I enjoy the company of a younger woman who’s pretty, urbane and still looking forward in life… smart, sexy and cool… down to earth, with a playful spirit and liberal values. I prefer simple things… drive a ragtop, enjoy day trips and use my turn signal even when no one's looking, and can enjoy a good red ale or craft beer, but prefer wine, and like my humor dry. Adore nature, but am not into roughing it and prefer a warm bed and a shower in the morning and the company of a woman who's consciously feminine and likes to spoon. I value loyalty and gratitude, and love a playful spirit, wit... curiosity and intellect… affection, frivolity, love and enchantment.
Despite not having my own children, I rented a room to a young protégé over the last year so she could afford to live here while interning at a museum. She left for graduate school in art conservation in mid-August, so now I'm an empty nester, and miss having her around.
I tend to read nonfiction and have an art history background, but easy and accessible taste, and enjoy the Sunday NYT... The Atlantic... and Salon. Some favorites books are... John Berger "Ways of Seeing"; John Dewey "Art as Experience"; and always the writings of William James.
I grew up around DC, which is a soul town, and love Classic Soul and Old School R&B, '60's-70's Country/Folk-Rock, and Romantic Symphony and Italian Opera... Verdi and Puccini!
Nice food is nice, and wine is wonderful too, though I don't drink much or like really hot food, and prefer to eat something lean and healthy. Can’t call myself a foodie though, since I can simply forget to eat if I'm really focused elsewhere.
