My self-summary
Empty nester. Passport in hand, I'm a grounded gypsy, a pragmatic romantic, an east-west coaster, and equal parts urban and nature addict.

I'm allergic to complacency and addicted to learning, travel, live music and anything I can conveniently order off a menu.

How about sharing a bottle of wine and leaving this site forever. I will probably ruin your life for the better.
What I’m doing with my life
I love to indulge in long dinners lingering over appetizers and cocktails.

Recent adventures include a month in Turks and Caicos, a week diving in Roatan, a week diving in Cozumel, and time in the Midwest to see Elvis Costello. Italy for two weeks :)

Although I no longer teach, I stay closely tied to my doctoral interests in Literature and film.
I’m really good at
Getting messages from women that don't read my profile :)

Being spontaneous. Having fun

Discussing literature, music and film (My graduate degree).
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm smart and funny, playful, charming, in charge, passionate, articulate, direct, painfully honest.

My great ass.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: I see most singer songwriters who pass through town.

I travel often for live shows:
Elvis Costello in Chicago, London and NYC, Phosphorescent, father John misty in Las Vegas, Damien Rice, Ryan Adams in NYC, the National in Madison, Bob, Bruce, Leonard, Bright Eyes in London, Laura Marling in Milwaukee, Savages, Ray Lamantagne, Gregory Alan Isakov, joesph Arthur everywhere, the tallest man on earth and U2 everywhere over and over again :)

Beckett, Auster, Kathy Acker, Lydia Davis, Delillo, Bellow, Freud, Lacan, Sartre, Steve Erickson.
Six things I could never do without
the music
the meal
the touch
the ocean
the travel
the dance
the kiss
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the vacation from the vacation

how to be a better lover
On a typical Friday night I am
listening to live music after an incredible dinner
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
How fucking great it is to be in my forties!

Experience has taught me what a healthy, passionate exciting relationship looks like. And I'm a better person for it. True connection is more about the kismet of chemistry than a laundry list of commonalities. So here's to being open to the kismet of chemistry...
You should message me if
You are fit. Healthy. And full of life.

You more than enjoy eating out, you live a healthy lifestyle, you love a fine cocktail or glass of wine, dancing and hanging out.

If you don't look like your pics you are buying drinks til you do.

Message me and let's make some bad decisions together.
The two of us
