My self-summary
I tend to be more comfortable one on one once I get to know you. I consider myself to be a good listener and communicator but do not particularly enjoy attending large social functions. I enjoy my job as an administrative analyst but at this stage in my life looking forward to retirement in about 2 or 3 years. I'm a political junkie, tennis addict and music lover. I'm an avid reader of the NY Times but can appreciate a good novel as well.
What I’m doing with my life
I enjoy playing tennis on the weekends or meeting up with my two siblings or traveling to visit old friends.
I’m really good at
being introspective and not flying off the handle right away and then I'll address what's bugging me when I've cooled off a bit.
The first things people usually notice about me
Not sure about this one...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Tom Wolfe's Bonfire of the Vanities, John Irving's Cider House Rules, Richard Russo's Empire Falls & Nobody's Fool, Marquez's Love in the Time of Cholera, She's Come Undone by Lamb.

I love escape movies: The Great Escape, Shawshank Redemption and of course the classic Count of Monte Cristo.
I love almost everything by Powell & Pressburger such as the ballet movie THE RED SHOES and the opera adaptation TALES OF HOFFMAN
I love anti-war movie classics like Kubrick's Paths of Glory or the french movie Grand Illusion.
Two favorite Harrison Ford movies: Witness & Regarding Henry
I LOVE MUSIC, all music from 50's R&B to 60's British invasion to Acoustic Blues, classic jazz, 20's & 30's big band every sunday on WFUV, classical piano such as Pictures at an Exibition and opera from Aida to Carmen to Tales of Hoffman
Six things I could never do without
My tennis racket, old recordings, movies, intimacy, passion and a joy of discovering something new.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Women! They're everywhere! Just kidding.
I think a lot about what i'm going to do when I retire.
On a typical Friday night I am
usually staying home after work with a glass of wine and a netflix. I have The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel right now. I watch Washington Week with Gwen Ifel (spelling). I love public television and did I mention, i'm a political junkie! I love Shields & Brooks on the News Hour, civil discourse between the left & right.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think I better keep that one private...
You should message me if
you want to have intimacy. It's important to touch and be touched n'est pas?
The two of us
