I taught both literature and creative writing. After 33 years of teaching most of my energy is devoted to my own writing. I also work as a consultant and editor for the NYC DOE
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 leap of faith and has turned out to be an excellent 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 not looking for someone to marry or a one night stand. I'd like to meet a woman who would first, above all else, be a good friend. Whatever relationship develops should be one that's organic and genuine.
We should simply be ourselves and have fun.
