Recently relocated to North Carolina to care for elderly mother. Happily partnered. Discreet American professional simplifying my life and taking some time to reflect on the next half. Hoping to figure out what i want to be when I grow up. Trying to give some quality time to being more human and less productive; need to rediscover wonder, play, and spontaneity.
People find me fun to be around, charming with a good sense of humor, intriguing, balanced/integrated, and a great friend. I'm well educated (Europe and US), well traveled, multi-lingual, and cultured. I'm active, athletic and in great shape.
Looking for friends and maybe a training companion -- any age/race between 20 and 50.
Interests in the past 5 years have included: Kite surfing (wish I could have tried it more often), surfing (I was lousy at it), scuba diving (when I didn't get sick on the boat), private pilot (recently sold the plane - no time to fly and stay skilled/safe), motorcycling (sport bike that I know can go at least 140mph! ), tennis coach, horses (love all the equestrian stuff, novice at most of it, have a Peruvian hot blood stallion standing in Texas at a friend's ranch -- see his hot photo in my profile, consultant to an equine therapy institute for leadership development) Love animals -- most recent companions were a doberman, a pharaoh hound, and 3 Peruvian Pasos, one of which I slid off of sideways when my saddle wasn't cinched tight -- he kept going and laughed at me. LOVE dancing. In community theater for 10 years. Judge for wine competitions - in vino veritas.
I enjoy most genres of music - except gangsta rap and heavy metal. Classically trained in french horn, trumpet, recorder, flute, violin, and voice. Enjoy classical, dance, latin, pop, rock, country, folk, bluegrass, trad, etc.
For books I love high end fantasy (CS Lewis, Terry Goodkind, Robert Jordan), Classical liberal arts background so classical literature - from Greeks to present, and I try to keep a current science book, esp on development of mind and psyche.
I generally don't watch TV -- but appreciate Discovery/History/Travel/Nat Geo Channels. Enjoy action thrillers, spy movies, foreign films, dramas, and good romantics. Not into horror or adolescent locker room humor/comedy.
I enjoy good conversation and good meals together - even if it's only a sandwich by the beach, or a beer at a pub. I'm a lover of beauty in all its forms. I prefer nature to cities and I love to laugh. Non agenda, non-political, down-to-earth, humble about struggles and strengths, in touch spiritually. Despite my background, I'm a simple Seeker, and looking for a few new friends to enjoy life in my new hometown.
