My self-summary
To use this familiar phrase, "my friends consider me" insightful, caring, iconoclastic, intelligent, feminine, and worthy of a truly reciprocal love. I love a good conversation and the sincere people who are not afraid of a debate.

I am looking for a hybrid between a conventional 'real man' and a rare specimen of a 'real mensch.' There are some allowable dispersions (plus/minus a trait).
What I’m doing with my life
Walking 4-5 miles every day. Come along with me.
I try to do something new every day, and occasionally even succeed:)
I’m really good at
...languages, communicating, happy and/or deep thoughts, inspiring others.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'll ask others about that:)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Alice Munro. Ernest Hemingway. F. Scott Fitzgerald. Amos Oz, "Fima," "A Perfect Peace."
Tolstoy, "War and Peace."
The poetry of Yehuda Amichai and Yevgeny Yevtushenko.
I am very selective at what movies I watch. Woody Allen is my favorite, when it comes to American movies. I love foreign movies. Eric Rohmer's "A Summer's Tale" is one of my favorites.

Music: eclectic, Latin, Russian, Israeli...Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, The Beatles, classical, folk, singer-songwriter genre.

Food: I love most foods.
P.S. I cook. I prefer eating at home.
The six things I could never do without
They are usually not things. Conversations with my children, writing, reading, making jewelry, walking, going to the sea shore. If things - then it's coffee, red wine, music, beads, books, paintings, flowers.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
.... how not to overthink what I already know and feel...
....how to be more disciplined and write every day...
....how the meaning of one's life changes with its stages, yet remains the same... maybe we could discuss this when we get together?
On a typical Friday night I am
At home or elsewhere. Why would it matter?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I talk to my cat. I sometimes deceive him when I say to him, "I'll be right back," and then come home in the evening only. I feel bad about that:)...

Those who don't understand this question, crack me up: it's not about revealing your deep dark secrets:) it's about revealing SOMETHING about yourself.
You should message me if
If you are kind, thoughtful, educated, and relatively content.
If you are available.
If you don't like that the word "message" became a verb.
If you are not looking to recapture your youth with a 35-yr old. I am not 35, and neither are you.
