My self-summary
Mature (I think); keep self in shape. Feel and look younger. Like to know what's happening politically near and far. Finally old enough where it makes sense though I can still be naive. Integrity important. Keep my word. Got all my teeth and take care of 'em. Curious. Inquisitive. Educated. Need more intimacy in my life. I fight the urge to be a hermit. Have beautiful five and year old granddaughters.
What I’m doing with my life
Retired teacher. Trying to figure what comes next. Was nice to work with teenagers - the next generation who will one day inherit what my generation has failed to fix. Looking for new experiences.
I’m really good at
Relating to people and trying to understand what makes 'em tick. Athletics. Living ON the ocean. Reading. Watching Celtics, Pats and Sox. Finding stuff to do women like. Being a friend.
The first things people usually notice about me
Pretty decent shape for my age. Good stamina.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
History. Non fiction. Biographies of people who've had an impact on the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in big or small ways. Just finished Isabel Wilkerson's The Warmth of Other Suns about the Black Migration to the north. Beautiful. Shall use it in school. Rick Atkinson's WW II series. Liked "Counselor" by Ted Sorenson. JFK more substantial then I knew. Some fiction; foreign flicks with something interesting to say. Sexy Beast, White Ribbon and The Proposition are favs. I find American-made movies say too little and ask too few questions. Like all kinds of music though don't listen much. Like all kinds of food though trying to eat less and be more selective and healthy. Love the NYT and Sunday AM news shows. Gotta (try to) understand.
Six things I could never do without
Newspapers, Newshour, intimacy, basketball, beach, horizontal refreshment.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My world. The world. How I fit in it. How fortunate I am. How much I need others in my life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Have played basketball with my usual crew, had a few beers, home on the couch trying to stay awake watching the Celtics or Sox.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Let's get to know one another first.
You should message me if
Aforementioned of interest and you're in shape, please.
The two of us
