I'd like to meet intelligent, adventurous people. I need someone who is intellectually curious and flexible and savors the give and take of protracted conversation. HOWEVER, I am in an open relationship, I have no plans of changing that. It works beautifully for me.
I am a programmer and work for a large NGO although my background is in emerging markets and economics.
I often with my teenager which I enjoy immensely, In the Summer, I garden on my roof deck and I am a great gardener but a horrible planner so , mid-August I am harvesting 50+ tomatoes a day. I buy a lot of people off with tomatoes. (Side note, one of my favorite smells is tomato plants.)
During the Winter (when I should be planning my garden), I restore old cameras and develop film. I have (and use) a digital SLR but I love the mechanics of old cameras. My favorite is a 1962 TLR with bellows that takes amazing pictures.
I regularly read the Economist (particularly the obit section which never fails to entertain me), Atlantic and New Yorker (ok, I always intend to read the NYer), London Review of Books. There is something about the three year discussions they print - review, letter about the review, letter about that letter...
I read a lot about languages but mostly online (language hat and language log). But, good Lord, Lingo is a fun read.
I'm open to whatever connections I may make. Needless to say, I'm straightforward, and there isn't much, if anything, that I'm not willing to answer or discuss. I am one of the least judgmental people you will meet and I expect the same.
