Subject: characters in search of a plot

Now that I'm off work and gradually remerging to the world I'm starting to think about writing again. I've got various pending drafts but have also come up with new characters who are bothering me but who presently totally lack a plot and just about everything. Possibly because they come from somewhere sort of personal (but they're characters).

Anyway, here goes:

-she's in her late 20s or early 30s, smart but a little naive. Think Giuliana "July" in a less caricatured version.

- he's middle aged, a former symphonic musician, not dealing with life terribly well, a slightly Evelyn Waugh-esque Catholic who's incoherent at best and hypocritical at worst. and who might or might not, have a serious health problem on the top of everything.

They meet by chance, she attempts to seduce him, succeeds but only in part… and this pretty much what I’ve got so far. Any ideas or thoughts?
