This year has been a good one. After being a road warrior for too many years, I left my corporate consulting gig (which led to several weeks of non-stop smiling) and now I'm the owner. Life is good. I travel much less and I'm actually getting a chance to enjoy the city....although now I'm like the the rest of Manhattanites and I get out of here whenever I can. Go figure. The obstacle of excessive travel is gone, so hopefully now jdate can lead to something permanent.
More information about me: I like to play with my four nieces and nephews and I've picked up a new skill: I've learned how to stop babies from screaming on a plane, simply by smiling at them. It actually worked once. Who knew! Other stuff: I like listening to Brazilian music, taking a weekday off to ski or play golf, teaching my nephew Charlie Parker tunes (although he can't play that fast because he's 12. However, I did recently teach him his first Miles Davis lick....) convincing myself I'm still a good athlete, drinking really good scotch and grilling dinner for my friends at the beach.
