My passions in
life are, among others, art, antiques, travel, music, politics, history, sports, cooking, news, C-Span and movies on TV. Also, good books and PBS, especially Masterpiece Mystery and Masterpiece Theater. Was an excellent all around athlete as a youth, e.g., tennis coach and Ivy League Heavyweight wrestling champion. Former head litigation attorney for a US gov't agency. Have a huge collection of art and antiques, that I am preparing to liquidate, as well as a several thousand volume art and antique reference library.. Great, , absurd sense of humor. Compassionate, sensitive, and have a certain amount of wisdom and good judgment.. Believe that one should live by the Golden Rule and the Rule of Reason, which is, that all questions and disputes should be resolved by a muted discussion and a willingness and humility to listen to and accede to the other person'a position, if the other person's reasons are better than yours and to admit to such person that one has so concluded. Enjoy eating at all kinds of restaurants. Am informal in dress and extremely curious and willing to try something new at least once. .
