My self-summary
A lifetime of experiences and you really expect a brief summary? I've done a lot, traveled a lot, smiled a lot, cried some, and loved deeply and so, of course, known pain. But I haven't given up. I am passionate

"...if you can bring yourself to face not shadows but real death, described and recognizable, by bullet or saber, arrow or lance, then you need never be afraid again, at least the same way you were before. Then you will be a man set apart from other men, safe where other men may cry in terror. This is the great reward. Maybe this is the only reward."

East of Eden
John Steinbeck

I did.
I am.
It is.
Yes, it is.

And if you think this is too intense, then pass me by. I know first hand of what he writes.
What I’m doing with my life
I've been working too much (international golf resort development and marketing in the Caribbean and Central America), reading too much, thinking too much, traveling too much. In short, I've been LIVING too much...but without someone that also has the same passions. I'll still keep living intensely, but hopefully with you. It's time to really start enjoying life again. Can you keep up with me?
I’m really good at
listening, thinking, analyzing, caring about others...and spending time alone with someone enjoying the quiet
The first things people usually notice about me
youthfulness of appearance (and spirit) as compared to actual age. Ah the number quandary. If I put my real age in the heading...which has admittedly just become 69...I'll be deselected by those who focus on chronology. And that would be my loss and yours. So I hope you can get past the number (most people think I'm at least fifteen years younger then I am; perhaps being blessed with good genes, great energy, and 131 healthy pounds cigarettes, helps).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I live in New York...I consume it all!
The six things I could never do without
music, reading, conversation, a warm puppy, walks in the park, affection (not in that order)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The current political and economic environment, opportunties for improving my lifestyle, how I have impacted other people's lives...and when I will meet you. It's time.
On a typical Friday night I am
There is no "typical" night
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'll admit in private
You should message me if
... the following speaks to you:

" i, with a deeper instinct, will choose a man who compels my strength, who will make enormous demands on me, who will not doubt my courage or my toughness, who will not believe me naive or innocent, who will have the courage to treat me like a woman."

....and you seek an assertive man who knows what he wants and goes for it, who wants a relationship devoted to mutual pleasure.

I am widely traveled, well educated, entrepreneurial. I live alone and work at home, with a very flexible schedule. The woman I seek encompasses not just attractive physical features but also spirit, kindness, intelligence, curiosity and her own opinion. I don't want a doormat, but rather a woman with the attributes that usually come with some years of maturity (this means especially that you know the songs).

If are you am I...of the silly on-line games playing, of communicating with people who don't know what they want; if you are put off by people who just want to...or can only... exist in cyberspace...then contact me.

But please, if you are a graduate of the "I love you, you're perfect, now change" school, look elsewhere. I am NOT perfect...and I am not likely to change...much. Nor will I wish to change you. By this time in your life you should be accepting of people and their preferences...even if those are not yours.

One more thing: affection, hand holding, cuddling and kissing are musts.

Stay hungry, stay foolish...and enjoy your journey
