Hello/Bonjour--

Creative, endlessly curious, intellectual, fun, and deeply loyal, my great loves are family and friends, writing and reading, art, hiking, travel, photography, classical music, yoga, painting, and languages. Other amazing sources of joy are cycling, tennis, sailing, birdwatching, gardening, occasionally trying to play the piano, and . . . savoring red wine. I have a PhD in English literature, and have studied or worked in the US, England, France, and Italy--I'm passionate about my career but definitely make time for lots of relaxing as well. And I totally believe in giving back to the world.

You: are creative, literary, intellectual, deeply kind, honest, and emotionally mature and open. You're successful in a career you're passionate about, and you're ready to find a real connection with a great friend--and possibly more--through good times and bad.

If this sounds like you, I'd love to exchange a message (though I'm not so much an IM person :)!
