Wherein our Hero describes his Quality,...

In his own words

Wherein our Hero describes his Quality, Encounters with a Belgian, and contemplates the Prospects of romantic Attachment... I'm 57 (still hanging in there). Live on the park (with a nice view into the trees that frames my geraniums). Into cooking, tennis, good art (e.g., 19th century naturalism--Audubon, David Roberts, McKinney and Hall), classical sculpture, Navaho rugs and kilims, vintage jazz guitars. I like to cook in and entertain. Civilized, urbane and simultaneously very American and very not. Vaguely Europhilic. I can get in trouble fast in several foreign languages. Funny at times in my way. I like to live well. I promise to be winsome, witty and charming. Kulturny. I can be romantic if inspired. My profile was hacked and for a few days I was unwittingly presented as a 61 year old Belgian accountant living in Phoenix. The rest of this space was previously devoted to a lengthy excursion on my various tastes, interests and attributes. It described a man of quality and parts. Men wanted to be me, women wanted to be with me. I discoursed on wine, jazz (the transcendent achievements of Ella, Sinatra, Basie), ancient history, the architecture of Venice, the hill towns of Tuscany and Umbria, galley warfare, the code duello, the grace and power of sports cars, thoroughbred horses and beautiful women...the 13 constituent varietals of Chateauneuf du Pape. It was generally received as refined, humorous and informative. There was a good line about how my knees are shot but everything else works. Ah yes. And how I maintained my customary sang froid during Hurricane Sandy by sipping Malbec and watching zombie movies. It helps if you are close to Manhattan. Different time zones are not close, nor are places with a visa requirement. Non-contiguous area codes are negotiable. I was thinking maybe a cab ride away or the cross-town bus. To me, SoHo is a bit of an excursion (the shellfish tower at Balthazar is worth the trip; the blanquet de veau is not). PS: My nom de guerre and professional role model is Manfred Powell, QC. This is the internet dating equivalent of a jellybean contest. PPS: If all this seems relentlessly high-brow, you will be appalled by how low-brow I can be. Beneath the glib banter lies an ordinary guy. I like to drink beer, watch footbal and fix cars. I also like the occasional dose of Led Zeppelin (sing along in falsetto on "Whole Lotta Love") or Van Halen ("How does it feel if it's Luv? If it's Luuv then it will be Foevuh"). No pills, no plumbing issues, no shrinks, no cavities. My youthful powers remain undiminished and, umm, vigorous. What a deal. PPS: Kidding aside, I'm after a serious, committed relationship, perhaps marriage. Looking for that tiny spark, that tingle when two tingles intermingle, that irresistible tug of the magnet. Love, passion and intimacy without too much emotional volatility or drama. Lazy weekend mornings, dinner parties, foreign travel, walks around the Reservoir--all the good stuff that makes relationships work well when they do. With luck we've learned how to make it work. Note: Winks, favorites and likes serve a purpose, but without pix or a visible profile, it's exasperating. Please no more winks/hidden profiles from 20 or 30 somethings in California, Louisiana, Western Massachusetts and Eastern Europe with dubious email addresses. I mean, what's up with that? Enough already. SpaciBo bolshoi. Do svidania. Finally, bear in mind that spelling is a window to the soul.

Favorite things

Having about four friends over for dinner and wine. Roast duck, potato gratin, red cabbage with brown sugar and apple cider. Lamb braised in a Dutch oven with herbs? Seared scallops? Clams grilled open and doused with sake? Sauternes.

For fun

Play jazz guitar pretty well for a guy with a day job. Know a lovely arrangement of "The Way You Look Tonight." Fitness is a priority. (I hope it is for you too). Used to windsurf a lot off Fire Island and Napeague. Have 300 btls of wine. Help.

Last read

Read a lot of ancient history and historical fiction. Steven Saylor's Roma Sub Rosa; John Stephens 19th century travelogues about the Middle East and Central America. Daniel Silva (Mossad assassin cum art restorer). For TV: Vikings, Roma, BSG.

Yale 1979; Northwestern Law 1984. Over-educated in some ways, densely ignorant in others. Literate but innumerate. My email strings tend to relate to cultural policy, the art market, buying wine, Middle East politics and vintage jazz guitars.
