My self-summary
I'm working as a bicycle courier, and live on my sailboat. My son has gone off to college, so it's a little empty around here.

I was born in England, still have a touch of English accent - still say tomahto!

I can still get a kick out of climbing a tree, just like I did when I was a kid.

Who I'm looking for: ideally, a woman still youthful in spirit who, if we proved a good match, would like the experience of living on a boat and going sailing.
What I’m doing with my life
Getting my boat fixed up to go sailing more.
A lot of bicycling!.
Writing song lyrics. (In April 2013 a jazz quartet in New York added ten songs I wrote lyrics for to their repertoire.)
I want to get back to scuba diving - haven't done it for a while now.
I’m really good at
The first things people usually notice about me
That I appear and act a lot younger than my years
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Robertson Davies, P.G. Wodehouse (especially Bertie and Jeeves), Jane Austen, John Collier, Kazuo Ishiguro, Malcolm Gladwell, David Sedaris
Just read Tom Wolfe's newest.

Movies: Chinatown, Body Heat, Mona Lisa, Crying Game, 8 1/2, Seven Samurai,
I don't watch TV (except for Downton Abbey, of course!), but I do catch up with some TV on DVD: The Wire, Malcolm in the Middle , Breaking Bad, Pride and Prejudice (TV - not the movie), Foyle's War, Wallace and Gromit. (I'll confess to watching all four seasons of Doc Martin)
If the radio's on, it's NPR: This American Life, Wait Wait, My Word, Car Talk
You should message me if
you like sailing, bicycling rather than driving, scuba diving, climbing trees, composing music, Scrabble and/or Boggle, Harper's or Guardian Cryptic crossword puzzle, Andrew Sullivan's blog, Jon Stewart, Daily Kos, the idea of living on a boat, and/or if you're a writer.

(If I've "liked" you, it's an invitation to get in touch.)
The two of us
