My self-summary
My friends would say*...nice things! But then they are my friends...So this is me...
What I’m doing with my life
Spent several happy years working overseas, across 3 continents plus this one, feel privileged to have spent time in different cultures & learned many things including how to get trampled by a hippo yet live to tell the tale...all this has helped to shape my world view. .. love my work- most of the based in Yorkshire with short assignments overseas...

I would like to meet an affectionate man who will take time to get to know one another. Someone who has lived and still loves life and wakes up hopeful. A dreamer with a sense of fun and frivolity. A man who is thoughtful, kind, fun to be with, sporty & outdoorsy but also enjoys arts & culture. A man who wants a close relationship, wants to fall in love (and lust!) and be happy with someone. Lets see what happens- someone to go to live music with would be a good start. Someone with something quirky/edgy about them, who cares about the 'big' issues, but who also laughs a lot. In short: sexy, intelligent and kind! Especially kind...

A man around my own age- give or take- who remembers...magic roundabout, growing up in the 1970s, ziggy stardust, punk, riots, two tone, northern soul, solidarity campaign groups, AAM etc ...or whatever was happening where you were...Important to share some core values re politics, social justice and the planet...Definitely left of centre! Laughter. Cautiously reckless? Chemistry...

I do know that you never know who you'll fall for...
I’m really good at
oh dear! Is this an application form?
The first things people usually notice about me
Eyes, sense of humour, red tennis skirt
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love music...the Delines, the National, Jonathan wilson....George Ezra, Springsteen, Patti Scialfa... Latitude, WOMAD,lovely Green Man... & films...Victoria, Leon, Mitsuko Delivers... the commitments, the big easy, seven minutes of heaven ..& nordic noir- borgen, the killing, wallender...magic realism- when I had a favourite book it was Isabelle Allende's 'La casa de los espiritus', swedish detective fiction, some of what my book group persuade me to read...

And wild places...walking on sunset beaches, wide open spaces, the open road...friendship, french films, italian coffee...people-watching, dreaming, wine & good company...venice, sydney, santiago...cuba libres, old havana, salsa latina...pablo neruda, paulo coelho, isabelle allende...calvin&hobbes...talking it over, talking all night, talking politics....sleeping by water... thinking local and global, moonlight, kissing in the rain...

I like intimate dinners where the company is the thing...Ideal evening? Talking so much we forget to order...So engaged only realise later that the food was not great- but the company was...But for a first date a coffee or a drink is fine!
Six things I could never do without
Son even though he's all grown up now...
Friends & family
Music, even better when live...festivals
Books, currently reading Mark Thomas's 'Extreme Rambling' & love Murakami & many others
Nature & wild places
Films, the sort you get at Hyde Park & LIFF
I spend a lot of time thinking about
where the world is headed...and what I should have done by now!
On a typical Friday night I am
drinking wine & unwinding....
You should message me if
I strike a chord...
And we genuinely have something in common...
The two of us
