...like Figaro and Susanna, or Beatrice and Benedict, or Nick and Nora Charles -- not Tristan and Isolde or Romeo and Juliet. In other words, I'm looking for a meeting of minds, a relationship compounded of companionship, affection, wit, and good old fashioned lust; ultimately, a partnership of equals.
As for my side of the equation -- I am a study in contrasts. Initially I may appear reserved, serious, sober, responsible, intellectual; but when you get to know me you'll find I am also humorous, sensitive, sensual and perhaps just a little bit crazy. I'm self-employed in the new media field, which suits my independent nature; as such I'm very plugged into cyberspace, new technology etc.; but I'm also passionate about the more traditional arts; literature, theatre, classical music, etc. I like to travel, preferably not as a tourist -- I spent 5 months working in Paris, and more recently visited the Barren Lands in the NWT, Venice, Prague, France and the Highlands of Scotland.
I am also a writer, working on a second novel (crazy or what? but maybe this one will get published), and have been editor of a literary journal — which are the real passions in my life, apart of course from my kids, who are grown up. I'm taking voice lessons, sing in a choir and like to take a break from the computer with camping or skiing.
In personal relationships, I am independent, i.e. not needy, but I am also very supportive, affectionate and passionate as well.
Let's trip the light fantastic together!
Musically I sing Gregorian chant and listen mainly to classical, but do enjoy jazz or rock if it's live and hot.
