After many years away from my hometown, it is time for me to return to my roots. I’m a nice, warm faithful guy who has been a college prof, archaeologist, ecologist, and writer. I have a little dog attached to my hip named Molly, who will charm anyone who charms her. Reading is a major activity, being by the lake or river soothes my soul, exploring on day jaunts, and quiet times partially define me. My politics and life outlook are liberal, with a deep interest in an intellectual life. I am hoping to meet a warm, faithful woman with some shared interests for companionship, warm and fun times, a fellow traveler on life’s journey. Like my dog, I am housebroken, possibly still trainable, and lots of fun. And like Italian food!
