My self-summary
I'm a strong, stable guy seeking a lady of interest. (More laid back than formal, despite the suit.) Well traveled, from Baghdad to Bangkok, Berlin to Bolivia, you probably won't be bored by my banter. Fluent in half-a dozen languages, I express myself rather well and can carry my end of the conversation on most any topic. Always willing to hear the other side out, and open to learning new things.

Whom do I seek?

I'm looking for a Lady with something of substance between her ears, a power of character and intellect behind her eyes. (I'd define that: every woman is a Lady, right up until she proves that she is NOT.)

{and that doesn't mean you can't be un-ladylike behind closed doors, not at all. I just ask that you be yourself.}

Someone with more insight than gossip.

A woman who is at home with herself: not necessarily satisfied with her own accomplishments, but willing to admit to her own success. A Lady who won't object to doors being opened for her, but who won't mind if she beats me to it. Be the strong, independent woman that you are... or simply "be" who you are. I've no pre-determined mold that my partner need fit.

Yes, I actually do own my own tux, and more than one pair of jeans. Truth be told, I'm perfectly at ease wherever life takes me... as long as nobody is actually shooting at us at the moment! I'm told I have the ability to put others at ease as well, with that gentle touch of my hand, quiet smile in my eye, and the gentle confidence of a man who has seen others through the fire.

And yes, they tell me the voice should be on the radio. Last? The age is correct. Some say I look older than that, because I lack the vanity to seek out a dye-job. I started going "silver" back in my early 30s, and never worried about it. Should I?
What I’m doing with my life
Taking names, curing trouble... or is it causing trouble?
I’m really good at
Exploring, listening, looking, and actually seeing what is around us...
The first things people usually notice about me
The voice... the height... the commanding presence.

Wherever I may be, I'm the sort who has people asking "Are you in charge here?"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The classics. Tolstoy, Twain, Tolkien, Asimov, Aristotle, Plato and Peanuts.

Movies? Casablanca. Monty Python. Blazing Saddles. Wayne, John Wayne. Timothy Green, Green Mile, Soylent Green. Turner Classics.

Shows? Fiddler. Les Mis. Nutcracker. Don Giovanni & Nozze de Figaro.

Music? Old and classic, haunting and pounding. Yes. Beatles, Bach. Styx. Strauss.

Food? Also yes....
Six things I could never do without
the love of a Good Woman...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything, a thousand topics and themes. The books not yet written, the songs not yet sung, the mountains unclimbed.
On a typical Friday night I am
What do you mean, 'typical?'
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Once admitted, is it still private?

This on-line thing works. Met my last wife this way, and that lasted a decade. What do we lose by trying it again?
You should message me if
you like what you see... and not quite "anywhere," I'd like to work with local gals, between say, Richmond and Philadelphia...

Nothing to lose by talking, will probably be fun. Probably have you laughing in under 30 seconds, if you do.
The two of us
