More important stuff:
World Citizen, internationalist, environmentalist, Uomo universale, autodidact, a philomath, dilittante, humanist. I love world travel, learn, but apply what I know and can do to help others. I'm very nurturing and caring.
I like nice people, open-minded, kind, thoughtful, and empathetic; I ignore no one. I admire those who find happiness in helping others and treating people with equality, respect and understanding per the golden rule; those who see we all share adventures in life, but reach out and to connect our unique experiences that are in fact deeply interrelated. There is much beauty to be seen and made!
What to do when we meet? Its not what you do, it's who you do it with. Any kind of interactive activity, depending on the nature of the interactive dynamic and the current comfort level. There is no rush, and there is no one right path to getting to know someone and building trust, confidence and admiration, respect. Its always a step forward once you start interacting and there is no one ideal date as this varies with the individuals. I do like deep conversations, smiles, and some touching, ideally. :) I'm romantic by nature, but never pushy. It has to be mutual and "natural." :)
Some qualities about me: I'm a caring, loving, person that is sincere, friendly, and appreciate those who are straight forward, communicative, and honest. I'm also spontaneous, open minded, affectionate, and passionate--but also very easy going; I get along with almost everyone. I love to read books, listen to music, cook, dine out, and spend time with family and friends. If this sounds like someone you would like to know, and wish to open up a possible adventure, send me a message!
I'm looking for a kind, loving, compassionate, intelligent, passionate and intellectually curious person with inherent qualities of hotness. :)

Music? Diverse tastes. I've played symphony orchestras so I know classical particularly well, but every genre of music contains genius and excellence; I keep my ears open and enjoy it all, esp. "world music," and most of what we never hear on the radio, in particular the harmonies of Greek and Arab music, and the melodies of the Japanese. I like minimalism, and met Philip Glass once performing. I love all of Mozart, esp. his Piano Concertos. I like his operas, too, esp. Don Giovanni. Rossini, Vivaldi, Beethoven, and Bach are also favorites. I also like oldies rock and a wide variety of songs, musical plays, folks music, the "protest songs" of Phil Ochs, and REM.
