In His Own Words

About him

my own skin as they say, but I sometimes wonder if I should have paid more attention to the many and varied experiences that life has offered me. I can see now the errors that I've made, and,more importantly,why I made them, but of course it's easy to .look back with the benefit of hindsight. The problem is that although one may feel that one is appealing to others in one way or another, the reality may be somewhat different. I mean, it never occurred to me that I may have been so sure of myself in all that I said and did, that no-one else could have shown or told me that I may in fact be wrong or at best, misguided. Even when friends of either sex tried, they were dismissed, hopefully kindly, as not really knowing or understanding the real me. What conceit on my part, how embarrassing now to look back on what was after all friendly efforts to impress on me that possibly, just possibly, I may be slightly adrift of who or what I thought I really was.

I have long been interested in the arts, languages and travel, so after taking early retirement from the Civil Service I thought I would, firstly, travel around Spain, secondly, try and do something about my atrocious French, Spanish and German and thirdly, see what I could achieve at degree level in the History of Art. So I went to Salamanca and failed miserably in the Spanish grammar department (nearly killed me!) but passed in the history of Spanish art. So on return I applied for, and took, a BA course in the History of Art here in the UK. Loved it. Currently taking my MA, I may later start painting again, may also start travelling again. Will continue to enjoy cooking (I don't care if that is now viewed in some quarters as somehat naff) drinking wine and watching (currently) Rugby, interspersed with travelling in France and Spain. I want to return to France, I've never seen Aix la C. for instance, not only to visit a different part of that country but to see if my French is what it once was.

About his ideal match

Perhaps someone who doesn't necessarily agree with everything I am interested in, or hold thoughts about, provided they are able to provide an intelligent alternative. Perhaps someone who has similar interests, but also intriguing alternatives e.g. in the world of travel and in whether art is important or just enjoyable.
