I did yet another Masters in NYC, so i spent a lot of time at school. Ive been living in NYC ever since.
I travel a lot for work, and love going to new places, and have an appetite for world travel, and discovery. The idea that billions of people wake up to a different reality is fascinating to me .
I'm looking for similar educated, relaxed, people, to get to know, and maybe more. I appreciate good manners, as its always a sign of strength. In an ideal world ...and I'm saying IDEAL, I get the hots for gentleman-scholar-athlete types ,kind and patient, funny, thoughtful, calm ...Who will pack novels in his camping gear to read before we fall asleep ...I know ...silly fantasy
I can whip up a sabayon with my eyes closed....love to cook delicate complicated things, I trained as a cook once....
That said I love Thomas Mann, Robert Musil, Gide, .... And of course the hilarious Mapp and Lucia series.
Harold Acton's Memoirs of an Aesthete.
I tend to read lots of non fiction, memoirs and biographies., pseudo science books about the dodo and strange giant fish. I go to the movies to see something interesting, and thought provoking...although sometimes silly movies are great on a Sunday. I fall asleep even in the most raucous computer animated crash scenes, just find them incredibly dull...bring back stuntmen
