I'm good at kindness most of the time.
In college that I looked like a young Fiidel Castro (no longer true).
In midlife that I was articulate and readily engaged (still mostly true).
Nowadays, perhaps they can still see some sadness in my eyes.
With respect to music the list is virtually endless: Bach, Mozart, Schubert, Beethoven; Chick Corea, Miles Davis; Grateful Dead, Bruce Springsteen; I'm a folk music aficionado; Musical Theater; Southern Blues; Reggae; Paul Simon, Regina Spector, Katie Melua; The Roches; and it goes on and on.
("Special uniqueness", hmmm, I'll have to check that one with the Department of Redundancy Department).
Please accept my one specific request: If you lowered your age for the purpose of appearing in more people's searches, as many seem to do, I understand the rationale for this; but please correct it in your first or second communication with me. Honesty on this question is very important for me because it is fundamental and we are, after all, trying here to create relationships that will abound in trust (or some of us are, at any rate).
