Classical music on QXR is pre-breakfast appetizer. With breakfast I usually listen to WNYC. Next, I fill the day with music-making and singing (Blues, Brazilian, Afro-folkloric) + tennis, Pilates, jogging, books and social life. I enjoy visual arts, dance, books, ideas, words, friends, other cultures/languages and the City. Walking or rolling, it's still a great location, especially its greener, improving parks and human-powered paths. Always involved with some amateur music, I studied Organizational Behavior in grad school and ran a center for natural healing arts, before producing a website on the subject.
I'm equally comfortable at home, in the moment, with someone else, with guests, or alone. I try to stay fit, curious, light and open-minded (But, no, I'm NOT looking for casual sex).

3. Recognizing my blessings.
4. Only life will reveal the others.
For a relationship, I prefer a gentleman who lives in the City. For friends, any location's OK.
