Hello and thanks for reading my profile :-)
I am an optimistic, intelligent, introspective, outdoorsy, athletic, kind of guy. I enjoy strolling, hiking, trail running, and cycling.
I also like to write; usually about political and social observations, sometimes about philosophical topics, and occasionally about love. I recently wrote my first children's book. My friends seem to think it's pretty wonderful. I am currently looking for an illustrator.
I also like to sit down at a piano and wander about with my hands until I find something beautiful. I like to cook and cooking together is one of my favorite things to do.
I am well read and well educated. I'm quick to laugh and abhor the idea of being mean or spiteful or deceitful to anyone. I can be extremely intuitive. I tend to cycle between interaction and reflection.
I enjoy wine, cheese, fruits, vegetables, and nuts. I like the feeling of having good energy throughout the day. There's a lot of life ahead and I'd like to remain in a good state of health.
I'm looking for a long-term relationship in which two people support each other's efforts to become whole and complete individuals. I'm an O who wants to roll next to another O, as in Silverstein's book. Setbacks and conflicts are opportunities to learn more about ourselves and each other.
I am very stably employed, but I am also working to move into an executive role in designing fundraising campaigns for special causes. I devoted a lot of graduate work to this goal and I'm passionate about it.
I have owned and lived in a large house on ten acres of land. I'm interested in a smaller, more authentic and more meaningful lifestyle that affords time for adventure and leisure amongst genuine friends.
I aiming for a life that includes much more traveling in a humble way to authentic places with beautiful people. I want to experience how other people are keeping the sweetness of community alive. I want to see more beaches, rivers, forests, and mountains. But for the moment, it would be nice to just spend time with another person who is stable, warm, and curious about our world and wants to live in an authentic, meaningful life; someone who enjoys good food, good wine, good conversation and the arts; someone who is emotionally mature and also capable of sighing with wonder like a child when enjoying a meteor shower or enjoying the good humor of a round of mini-golf. Fun is good.
