After teaching literature and creative writing for more than 35 years I now have the time to write both fiction and non-fiction, an interest I've had since the 6th grade when I wrote for my school's newspaper.
I appreciate art of all kinds and that includes music. My favorite music is jazz as well as classical. I also enjoy pop,some country and most rock. I don't enjoy rap or heavy metal. I enjoy live music,whether in a jazz club, Avery Fisher Hall or a concert in the park.
Teaching gave me time to travel and it's still one of the things I love to do. It could be a month long stay in Europe or a quick weekend getaway to the mountains or the shore
I have a good life and I wake up each day with optimism. My health is good, both physically and emotionally. I've always looked younger than my age. I can always make you laugh. A sense of humor is necessary. Not sweating the small stuff and not taking one's self too seriously is a very important quality. Moving up here to the Hudson River Valley a year ago was a great decision!
The woman I'm searching for does not have to be a specific physical type. A woman's voice and aura/sensuality will appeal to me. Hopefully, she would be affectionate, passionate as well as intelligent(common sense and life experience are just as important as college degrees)
I'm an unpretentious, normal guy who is searching for a woman who will compliment me. I'm not necessarily looking for my next wife. I want to enjoy someone's company without any particular expectations. Wherever it leads, it leads and if we're both satisfied, that's great!
We have to choose between dating and long term. I'm not interested in a one night stand. I want a first date to lead to a second date........ It all begins with friendship.
