So here's what I've got going: reasonably youthful appearance; functional, flexible mind; stimulating personality; I'm highly independent, well-adjusted, warm-hearted, imaginative, politically concerned and culturally literate. I've hit the 50 country mark in my travels, but still have many places left to explore or revisit. For the immediate present, L.A. provides ample cross-cultural adventures via random exits 10 miles up or down the freeway.
I'd love to meet a woman with grace, beauty, brains, wit and a fearless heart. That's the writer in me inventing a fictional character. Please, just be who you are...and I'll try to do the same. The possibilities are truly infinite, well beyond this site's algorithmic quantification.
Oh yes, there are still a few unwritten scripts calling out from my subconscious.

(This does comes across as self-ironic, doesn't it?).
or you're hungry/lonely/bored/overcaffeinated or fairly drunk.
Any other excuse probably works too.
