Paraglider pilot, traveler, German-born, American-raised, hung out in NYC before moving to Boston. Wine snob. Favorite cities are Barcelona, Berlin and Buenos Aires. Does that mean I will like Bangkok? Voracious reader. Married. Gay. My view on the third phase of my life is embodied in the following quote:
"Age is the perfect camouflage, and if I were the general of an army of old people, I wouldn't lose a single battle, because they could invade an enemy city unnoticed, they could occupy a whole country with their insidious rheumatism, their all-conquering diabetes, and their rampaging asthmatic bronchitis. And the enemies would be condemned to spend their time playing cards in the park, wearing slippers on their left feet and shoes on their right, and spearing butt-ends in the flower beds with their canes."
If you know where this comes from and who wrote it, I owe you a drink and a smile.
