I have sown my wild oats and am now ready to settle down with one someone.
I am a patient and empathetic listener which I have learned to be from teaching and from having studied for many years with my late vocal teacher, a truly great pedagogue and a wonderful human being.
I am interested in people from many cultures and I am open to new cultural experiences, having lived extensively in three foreign countries.
I can write poetry. Here below a sample of a sonnet I wrote last year:
On The Bridge
Above the purple harbor boldly spans
The mighty bridge with granite grace whose cables,
Support a solid walkway where we stand.
At center point of downward curve we're able
To scan the glowing dusk above the city.
She feels the southern wind caress her hair
The girls beside me turns with bright eyes pretty,
With pensive mien and parted lips so fair...
I tell the tale: the builder's family's striving,
The father's death, the illness of his son,
Whose faithful wife completion hopes reviving,
Could finally rest-the work of years was done.
Cathedral-like the tower's' mighty arch
Reminds us of the spirit's forward march.
I'm also good at collages and watercolors. If you want to see some, I'll send you my website address.
Favorite actors: Dianne Keaton, Maryl Streep, Romy Schneider, Julia Jensch, Nick Nolte, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Humphrey Bogart
Singing every day
Reading a wonderful book
Seeing a happy child
Feeling thankful for what God has given me
Saying something funny to make someone laugh
My dream woman
How to make the world a more peaceful place
