My self-summary
I'm glad to finally be back in New York for good! Lived in Asia, Europe and a couple of US cities on the east coast so far. Always up for an adventure.

I am on here to meet interesting people I would otherwise never cross paths with in real life, and pass time in pleasant ways: Watch live music, share a bottle of wine, or start our own 2-person book club. Perhaps I'll ultimately meet my "perfect match"? Maybe.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - Too many to list. Some books I've read more than once: Jane Eyre, No Man's Land, Miguel Street, To the Lighthouse, Mrs Dalloway, Jacob's Room, Pale Fire, We Have Always Lived in a Castle, Notes from the Underground, One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich, Violence and the Sacred. Favorite authors: Virgina Woolf, EM Forster, Jean-Paul Sartre, T.S. Eliot, Edgar Allan Poe, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Søren Kierkegaard, Franz Kafka.

The six things I could never do without
My family, my friends, a book to read in bed, freedom to travel, rational thought and kitties. I really want a kitty.
You should message me if
I am looking for an intellectual equal (or superior) above all else, so someone who is educated, has varied interests and loves intellectual foreplay as much as I do. And please be older than me.

If you're what I'm looking for (and I'm what you're looking for), say hi.
