I’m reasonably active… biking, hiking, golf, gym, etc., but I also cherish my "down-time", i.e., reading, writing, listening to music, relaxing with friends, messing around in my workshop, and hanging out at the local coffee shop (not a Starbucks) where I play chess, schmooze, and discuss current-affairs with the Russians... stuff like that.
I’ve been practicing law (my own small general practice) for about 20 years now. It's often challenging and frequently frustrating - but ultimately it provides me with a reasonable living and a modicum of intellectual stimulation... so, all-in-all, I guess I’m relatively sated with my work. I have managed to take some time to travel (I recently returned from Vietnam and Thailand), but not nearly as much as I'd like to... I figure that I'll have to live to be 100 to visit half the places that are on my bucket-list.
I especially enjoy going to plays, concerts, arts and music festivals, browsing bookstores, tinkering, fixing and building things, and experimenting in the kitchen (it may come out looking ugly, but surprisingly it's usually edible). Things I don't especially enjoy (but manage to deal with): my stepmother, cleaning my house, playing video games and lending out my tools.
I’m interested in dating - for now, BUT with the objective of finding "the one". Ultimately, I'm looking for a life-companion with a similar world view and who enjoys doing the same things that I do someone who is intelligent and focused, hard working but low-stress, and attractive yet low-maintenance... (yes, that too -)).
