Normally, I work Monday-Friday, nine hours/day, and at 77, I don't have a lot of energy left over. But I miss giving pleasure to a woman who likewise needs someone. If you would also enjoy a limited, occasional meeting with someone who will treat you with respect, dignity, and gentleness, please feel free to dialogue with me. My central ethical tenant is to strive to "Do no harm," to relieve pain and suffering whenever and wherever I'm able. This includes the furry creatures we love as pets, as well as all non-humans of all species. My background/history includes travel to many different countries, lived in nine different states from the west coast to east coast. My major interests are the discoveries of science about our evolution, both human and the cosmos, and the philosophical search for 'raison d'etre'. As for music, I prefer the 14th through 19th century classical, likewise for artists (painters and sculptors).
