On the fun side, I watch movies (mainly independent, sometimes well created main stream and a little bit of science fiction films) a lot, not much of a TV watcher; listen to music a lot (jazz, "classic" and Latin) and go dancing whenever I get the chance; enjoy to wine and dine out but prefer cooking at home while listening to a fine jazz. When I go out (which I often do), I like to go to pubs, social and fun events and live performances. I exercise at the YMCA regularly and play racquetball at least 3 times a week (staying "Athletic and Toned"). I love animals and when it comes to pets, cats are on top of my list (had one for 16 years); enjoy being in nature and outdoor activities such as hiking (backpacking), camping or simply walking. I believe being around animals and nature alleviate our alienation from the nature. I read books (novels, fictions, documentaries, philosophy, history...) a lot; try to keep up with the political and cultural happenings in the world and around us by regularly reading newspapers and magazines online and share interesting articles with my friends. I take my job seriously and try to enjoy it. All these don't keep me from fulfilling my love of photography.
I love nature, it's honesty and freshness and simply being itself helps me to appreciate life. I try to the best of my ability to preserve it. We have only one earth to live on, so I spent lots of my time in nature.
And art, the ultimate expression of humanity. Impressionists like Van Gogh are my favorite painters. And when it comes to expressing the reality, I have chosen photography for expressing the reality and it is my hobby.
And cooking, another art. If art feeds the soul, cooking (good food) feeds the soul and the body. I love to listen to some jazz while cooking. Getting good at it, but it is a process.
You should message me if You are ready to be respected and cared for, indulge yourself in my passionate and affectionate company, be ready to be surprised, cuddle with me and read a book or listen to music or watch a movie, talk about everything and nothing, are willing to absorb my endless devoted and undivided attention, to either cook with me or simply keep me company in the kitchen.
I believe that "We find comfort among those who agree with us, growth among those who don't" (Frank A Clark). So, we don't need to agree on everything, but need to be there for each other in times joy and sorrow.
I love to hear from you if you like what you see and what you read about me.
