"Most of us pursue pleasure with such breathless haste that we hurry past it." I want to linger - with an intelligent, adventurous, passionate man of principle.
I live in a semi-rural area and I love the privacy. I can play my music loud when I want and belt it out with Janis, Etta or Amy - or drift silently on the beauty and purity of Leonard's words. This is a physically beautiful region but I miss 4 definite seasons, open fires, exotic trees - places of high altitude.
I enjoy my own company, but also love spending time with my 2 beautiful children my extended family and close friends - preparing/sharing good food, good wine, good music, stimulating/amusing and sometimes challenging conversation as well as tear producing laughter with people I love - perfect.
Travel's important - it's about the people I meet, the relationships I make rather than box-ticking landmarks. I've lived in Greece - my current love is Italy - for the people, the food, the wine, the passion, music, art, architecture, festivals, opera and jazz in the vineyards throughout summer.
Work has just finished - the restructure begins. Downsize!!
I'm tolerant, philosophical, passionate, compassionate, independent, tenacious, practical, analytical and creative.
I realise we all have a past and with that comes "baggage" - it's our experiences and how we manage them that determines who we become.
I value high self esteem and strength of character - I want to hear your opinions and don't expect you'll always agree with mine. I love clever banter - a witty sense of humour.
Like most of us at this age I've had some life-changing experiences - some wonderful - some incredibly painful and it's those that have had the greatest impact - challenging me emotionally, spiritually and physically - but also giving me the greatest opportunity for change to occur. The ability to continue adapting, changing and growing through life's challenges is very important to me.
