In His Own Words

About him

I'm passionate about: art (Egyptian canopics to Grayson Perry), architecture (The Colosseum to Frank Gehry), design, CAD (Photoshop, SketchUp, etc.), photography, music of most genres, especially guitar - (Clapton/Knopfler/Bream), Dylan of course, Joni Mitchell, Sissel Kyrkjebų, Ana Moura (and Fado), Suzanne Vega (see profile name), POTO at the RAH?; classical - Grieg, Sibelius, Mendelssohn, Dvořįk, et al. - favourite aria at the mo.- Rusalka (Song to the Moon) sung by Choi Jung-Won - quite exquisite, check it out on YouTube and also the English translation (other sopranos are available!), Hiromi Uehara and her phenomenal jazz piano improvisations, e.g. Pachelbel's Canon or her superbly sensitive "Wake up and Dream"; fillums, a humongous collection to watch while tickling each other's toes.

A restless, enquiring mind - fascinated by the beauty, science and magic of nature (such as... watching/investigating a spider spinning a web or capturing and enveloping its prey : - o); stargazing on clear Autumn nights, waiting for the next Roswell... but only until my knees start to knock and nose turns blue with the cold!

Likes some DIY - carpentry & plumbing a speciality... prices on application ; - ) and growing things to eat (blackcurrants, damsons & raspberries this year... yummy!). Loves getting down and dirty in the garden. : - /

Passable cook, neither galloping nor inebriate (only mature food programme fans will get that).

Enjoys intelligent conversation on artistic, scientific and musical subjects (and funny laugh-out-loud ones too). : - )

Scrabble World Champion... (in my own fertile imagination). : - (

Still think I'm a 17 year old, sat at the back of a school classroom, eyeing all the girls who I'd love to go out with and wondering if they'd be interested in me? A chalk duster whizzes past my ear... the teacher shouts - "Your mind's wandering again, Penitent!!!"... *methinks* - "He's right... I only need just one!"

About his ideal match

Someone who values her own space, yet enjoys being part of a couple, and preferably shares some of my interests, as I would share hers, such as cooking, washing-up, ironing, knitting and sewing... errrm, no... forget the last three... I was on a roll.

Don't ask me about the offside rule, 'cause I haven't the foggiest either. (I find sports/football talk sooooo boring)

A non-snorer (preferably) who sleeps on the left side of the bed, or the right side depending on which way you look at it (although a compromise could be reached as part of a prenuptial agreement).

Must like spiders*

****************************************

*Non-domesticated garden variety only

Seriously though... a demonstrative, tactile and loving lady who likes and appreciates warm hugs and kisses! Computer-literate maybe, perhaps a bit geeky, and interested in both the old and the new.

Thanks for reading, if you struggled to reach this far. : - )

P.S. ~ I don't really speak all those languages... just hedging my bets in case someone in this big wide world will love me. : - (
