My self-summary
Eclectic, educated, erotic, erogenous, expressive, emotional. Well, it's a start! Looking for an honest, open, adventurous relationship with a like-minded sinner! I am open to a companion, a lover, a partner, a commitment, as long as it is of quality, substance and passion!
What I’m doing with my life
I'm trying to fill in this profile as best as I can, but thoughtful inputs take time! Taking hikes with the dog in these endless downpours and loving it! And giving him a lot of TLC drying him off when we finally get in. Aging gracefully while not taking myself too seriously. Transitioning to working less (or at least on my terms) and enjoying more. Volunteering more (Why is it I enjoy volunteering a LOT more then working for money?)
I’m really good at
Evidently the dog TLC!
The senses.
I am excellent at observing situations, technical problems, issues, etc., and breaking them down to solutions. And simple, straightforward ones at that.
I am very good at process, defining processes to getting things accomplished and on schedule. Also very good at communication, being able to take complex or complicated subjects and give them words and making them understandable. Skilled at presentations, great in front of an audience.
Given this, I am a good communicator in general; a good listener, always interested in understanding people and taking the time to do it. And being open and honest about myself, being able (or at least trying like heck) to describe what I'm thinking, feeling, seeing.
Have 25+ years experience in project management in highly technical complex fields. I have had extensive experience in international work with foreign governments, that leads to a lot of interesting travel.
(and, passion. Really.)
The first things people usually notice about me
My blue eyes, and the expressiveness of them. Sometimes flashing, inquisitive, passionate, then other times soft-focused, emotional. But seldom, if ever, without expression. I'm also tall and quite fit.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Stieg Larsson, Robin Kelley, David Sedaris, Michael Pollen, Diane Ackerman, The Monks of New Skeet, Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, Shakespeare, LeCarre, James Joyce, Hemingway, Whitman, Henry James, Dylan Thomas, Bob Dylan, O'Neil, George Sand, D H Lawrence, Tolstoy, Fitzgerald, Dorothy Parker, Lillian Hellman, etc.

I am a slut for good movies, old, new, foreign, comedy, suspense, art, etc. Just caught up on The Third Man again, and recently caught Tinker Tailor..., Much Ado About Nothing, Hugo, The Artist; The Secretary (again), I am Love, Ides of March, The Black Swan. Anything from Woody Allen to Almodovar to the Coen Brothers. Almost anything with Tilda Swinton or Jeremy Irons. Two not-so-known greats I can think of off the top of my head is The Lives of Others and The Secret in Their Eyes. Both stunning!

My music goes a broad spectrum, from Tom Waits, Thelonius Monk, John Coltrane, Cannonball Adderley, Art Pepper, Bill Evans, Bob Dylan, Ella Fitzgerald, Neco Case, B52's, Rolling Stones, to Europa Galante, Vassen, Aly Bain, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and most anything in between. That said, I love jazz of all styles, with some of the older stuff (1970 on back), really shaking my tree. Not much for rap, but if you can dance a groove to it...

And dance!! Anything. Rock, swing, sleaze, reggae, blues, the two-step, waltz, polka, etc., etc., etc. I was raised by dancers, and it's been an infection since birth. If I could choose how to die, if not peacefully in my sleep let it be either in bed (engaged) or on a dance floor!

As a point of clarification on some of the detailed questions, I'm really only "rarely" in drugs, and only on a 420-friendly basis. I've had some wild experimenting when I was young, but not for a long while now.
Six things I could never do without
Passion. (What's the use of living without it!)

Music, good wine, great sex, good movies, the perfect cocktail (probably a Manhattan or something close), a good pair of walking shoes, dancing.
I know that's more then six but I don't care: this shit is important!

The New York Times online.

So there!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
A lot of things. Screwed up politics, all things sensual, artistic liberty, the life of a dog, Buddhism, eroticism, charity, global warming, control, the power continuum, world population, defining the male version of an ethical slut.

"If it takes a near death experience for you to appreciate your life, your wasting someone's time." Nikki Giovanni
On a typical Friday night I am
Either headed to a movie, or a dance or home making my first cocktail before making dinner.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can have a passionate, sensuous, sexy side, pretty diverse. Leaves a lot of options out there. I have fantasies of lust, desire, etc. There's a lot more (details) I would admit to the right person.

And, as a counterpoint, I can be an old-school type romantic with all the trimmings! But, again, for the right person (you won't necessarily see me wearing it on my sleeve.)
You should message me if
If you got this far! If anything you've read above strikes a chord. And the stronger the chord the more reason to. I appreciate the match ratings once you get up to answering a good number of questions, so anything over 80% should be considered. And if it's 90% or above it should be required!
I am open to a companion, a lover, a partner, a commitment, as long as it is of quality, substance and passion!
The two of us
