I have two advanced degrees, (in science and literature), but that doesn't mean that I feel knowledgeable enough. It doesn't make me a geek, although I might be considered one, given my predilection for mixing differing schools of thought and liking obscure books, music, and films. I also have two grown children and a new granddaughter.
I have worked in the aerospace industry for a number of years, on some of the most exciting ventures. However, I am not an engineer, although I admire those who are good at that profession.
I was born in the former USSR, came to the US young enough to integrate both cultures. I will never be 100 per cent this or that. I'll probably never fit in anywhere. A sense of belonging is important, but voluntary exile is a vantage point. We are all adapting to the new world... methinks...
I am pro-Israel while being liberal (in my own understanding of liberalism). I have never been able to, and never will toe any party line.
For some men, it's important to be doing fishing, bicycling, camping, or sky-diving - together. I don't do any of the above. Well, I wouldn't mind trying fishing (I think). It would be nice if you enjoy reading together (not all the time, on occasions), going to the movies or concerts, and going for a walk every day. If you are someone who has plenty of things to do by yourself, while capable of being really together and present with someone else, then write me.
