A relationship should be guided by honesty (no games), respect and kindness, having dignity in gestures and the nobility in the spirit: that is how I work (and I try). The conscience being tied to the integrity and trying to act for something better around. Maybe the echoes seem forgotten, but I believe in the path of Chivalry and Honor; I have compassion on the hardness, but pleasure by the simple gifts of everyday. I have a sensitive-aesthetic and philosophical vision of life. I'm a very intellectual 'being' (remember Aristotle in his Physiké Akroásis: this is the man's nature; and Pascal in Pensees: the dignity is in thinking). The conversation and open-mind are the magic way for understanding another rich person, a “brave new world” (a quibble of The Tempest, Shakespeare). I like many things: academical articles (Philosophy, Geography, History, Anthropology, Philology-Ancient Languages, and phenomenological approaches), Literature (classic, poetry etc), Arts (Music, Painting, "old Cinema", etc), studying, listening music (erudite, blues, jazz, the good'n old rock'n roll, folk), playing m. instrument (mandolin: "celtic" and ancient), going out at night to coffees and pubs tasting a beer, the concerts and "saraus", walking and enjoying the landscapes in silence; sometimes smoking pipe... looking up the stars and forgetting all for a little; talking about life and experiences (etc), and at final, any meeting with friends to share a bit of existance. Also I like writing thingies.
Cultural activities like exhibitions, "symposium", folklore's things, libraries, architecture, cultural places, nature ('passive', calm walking), are attractive to me.
Finally, there is much to say and there is no space here unfortunately. Sensitive, educated/intelligent and loyal people will be very welcome.
Ps.: sorry my English (my resources are not extensive, that is a basic level)...
I appreciate people who want to improve not only themselves but as others, and seek to contribute towards people. I appreciate the synergy, the identification and an ideal with partner. Prefer mature relationship, company and complicity. A partner is to share and explore her potential and encourage always, leave her when necessary (not suffocate her: freedom/respect are all), to value her and take steps to magnify and stimulate the sense of experiencing in relationship. Anyway, I understand that everything comes from a good friendship initially, with sensitivity and care, affection and kindness.
Finally... As I have said… sorry my English again, and thanks for your time to visit here...
I am a descendend of old portuguese, spaniard and flemish settlers in Brazil, who came in the colonization at beginning of this country (16th c), from my mother's side. From my father, they were portuguese and italian immigrants (19th c).
My formation is in "Humanitas": two completed areas, one philosophycal, other scientific.
I grew up as roman catholic, but during my life I developed my perspectives in a personal approach, independant and not formally: many Judeo-Christian values exist, but I adopted an humanist view of the world. Anyway, I am not atheist etc.
I will write here just in time, then be patient please. For now, I am trying to test this new software... Let's see... Ps.: Posso falar em Português; Puedo hablar en Español; I can speak English (but not very well as you can read).
