A little about me...
Intellectual - well read historian and geographer. Nature lover. Travel and classical music are high enjoyments. Not overly materialistic life, simple pleasures. Easy going & humor. Progressive ideas; citizen of the world. Generally healthy- gym & hikes. Love good food. Enjoy the company of people and friends.
About the one I'm looking for...
Well balanced, mature, humorous, educated, philosophically progressive. Is hopefully not intimidated by strongly intellectual women. Non smoker. Hopefully a talker- I love to talk, but equally enjoy listening to a good talker. Hopefully a good travel companion, one that can equally enjoy good living, but also exploring unbeaten paths- Calm and unfazed in front of tense situations.

My Top Interests:
Music is the language of the soul- the infinite variety of human emotions is found and explored in this invisible mine. Great music is my daily fare- I especially love it live- Walt Disney Concert Hall, LA Opera, Master Chorale, LA Chamber Orchestra. Reader of music history, music and the brain, etc. My son, 17, plays the violin since he was 6, a great source of enjoyment. Happiness is great music mixed with great company and great food!
Nature and Outdoors
Nature is spirituality, communion with the grand, the mysterious, the ineffable and the beautiful! I get replenished by the sea, the coast, the mountains and the grandiose works such as Grand Canyon, Yosemite, etc. Happiness is grandiose nature explored through travel to new sites.
French blood runs in my veins ...therefore food is a rather important part of life. Good food, good wine. Cooking it, tasting it, exploring unusual eateries. One of my favorites: the Procope in Paris- site of the planning of the French Revolution, now the greatest place where one can revel on New Year's eve. Happiness is restaurants mixed with nature (Ranch House in Ojai - or sitting on a beach facing the waves), plus great company!
