Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have fun with life and with my work: eliciting laughter and
smiles from unhappy elders and others. I have the natural ability
to somehow get them to laugh and lighten up. I do this with large
audiences as well.
Very, very gradually, I developed abilities to perceive energies or
auras and to facilitate healing in people. I have had a range of
episodic intuitive experiences, but my primary gift is that of a
I have unusually good health and good energy. I may see 100 as did
my maternal grandfather before me.
I am very easy-going, flexible and resilient on a day-to-day
basis--but I strongly hold my ground when I see or feel a major
injustice. I am serious about completing and publishing my books:
including one on humanity's holistic health. My doctorates in
Sociology/Race/ethnic Relations AND Clinical Psychology combined
with my ability to effect healing have provided me with a
potentially valuable perspective to be a voice among voices to help
humanity-as-client to save itself...from itself.
In the long run, I can do the writing, lecturing and healing from
anywhere and I can relocate to almost anywhere if so motivated.
Ithaca is a very livable place and I continue to work here on a
flexible schedule--one that allows me to explore relationship or
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am happy to discuss in detail should you have interest.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
helping people feel at ease and getting along well with a wide
range of individuals. I have been told on both personal and
professional levels that I am very good in what others call
"crises." This trait has saved lives, including my own. While I
tend to be calm, cool and collected, I can also be very warm and
passionate, including when writing or lecturing. I guess, overall I
am good at being "resilient."
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Visually, I am seen as very young-looking. I am seen as larger than
I physically am because of my energetic and sometimes sensual
presence. I am told I am who I appear to be via my photo. I still
have the beard but it is expendable. I once lost it in a card game
in Frankfurt, Germany and the winner pasted it on magazine faces
and sent it to me after I had returned to the states. Although I do
have a serious mission to fulfill with my writing, I have lots of
fun with life nearly every step of the way!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Feel free to ask about all this beyond my saying I enjoy a rather
wide range of movies and live performances and I love to eat! To
maintain my excellent health and fulfill my longevity script, I
have chosen to be selective in my food choices. On any given day,
however, I am flexible and can eat in almost all homes or
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I am choosing to cite internal attributes here: fortitude,
resilience, love, wisdom, humor and sensuality.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to juggle my range of interests to get my manuscripts in
publishable form. Although reputable academic presses expressed
serious interest, I have been thinking about and acting upon the
restructuring of the manuscript for a broader audience.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I have not "aged" well. In fact I have hardly aged at all in
certain respects. Without any warm-up, I can swim a full 25-yard
lap without taking my head out of water and I've always been a SLOW
swimmer. Or, I don't even notice I am breathing on the stationary
bike until I surpass heart-rate of 120 bpm. I try to cap the
"hills" at 160 but sometimes slip and hit 170. I am just not aging
as I am "supposed to"...for which I am thankful!
