ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

University professor. Cerebral but grounded. Fancy myself entertaining, but that's for others to judge. Leftist politically. I appreciate literature, occasional cigars, classical music, and World War I. Would live in Paris c. 1880 if such a thing could be arranged. Since it cannot, I read as many nineteenth-century novels as possible to try and reconcile myself to the cruel lot destiny has dealt me.

I think a worthy life turns on creativity, curiosity, and compassion. I also like trees, Kant, Post-Impressionism, The Clash, antique books, Charles Baudelaire, and seriousness of purpose. I detest Andy Warhol, libertarians, lemon meringue pie, late Heidegger, and smallness of soul. I try to be a vegetarian, with mixed results. I also try to be both agnostic and generous, and in these areas think that I consistently succeed. I believe that "I, Claudius," "Upstairs, Downstairs," and "Arrested Development" were among the finest things that ever appeared on television (although I no longer own one). I additionally believe that good Roquefort is the king of cheeses.

This is my creed.

Update:
A friend of mine tells me she thinks that the above might sound a little over the top to anyone who does not already know me. So, while everything I’ve said up to this point is true, I’ll take a moment to emphasize the “grounded” part of the foregoing. I mean, I certainly like to think I have an authentic and unusual approach to the world, but I also have a sense of the practical and real, and an appreciation of the opportunities that everyday life offers. I believe in living fully and earnestly, and don’t think that doing so requires forced and contrived efforts at Bohemianism. I volunteer my time to a couple of local groups, take meditative walks around the city, read, write, and think. I try to look out for people, and care a lot about art, history, and philosophy. The women I like tend to be smart, intense but playful, engaged with the world around them, feminine, and kind. I could go on with this list, but I also want to appreciate people as I find them, rather than for their ability to match a pre-existing description.

C'est tout.
