I enjoy life's simple pleasures, good conversation, dining and cooking, movies, music, the company of friends, gardening, reading history, fiction and biographies, and mostly being with someone special. I'm a romantic Scorpio with a sense of humor and adventure. Love to travel and wish to do so more. Practiced law for 25 years, recovered fully, tried a hand at business several years ago, then found something I love to do: stock day trading. Finding this time of my life challenging, rewarding and surprisingly enjoyable, with a greater awareness of the subtleties in life and the child within. I'm looking for a woman of character, with smarts, a funny bone, and a sense of adventure. My newest writing:
"The Second Rock"
Your ancient diadem's been pawned
but in undiminished splendor you bow
beneath the starry skies, glistening,
with a second hand gold.
Those timeless tresses forever fall
beyond this world's horizons like a golden apple
plucked by gusts from an October storm.
No earthly power or potion can reconnect us or engorge
that withered stem which held us fast in mystic matrimony.
We can calculate what's been gained. Our loss is beyond all measure.
