Originally from NYC, Brooklyn, to be exact, I have a bit of sarcasm in my blood. I've lived in New Mexico, Alaska, Chicago and now Boston all of which has fueled that particular bent. I'm happily settled, for the moment, in JP. Such a great neighborhood.
I teach art (at the university level)...which sometimes feels like an oxymoron, but I do love it. I also make art. I love what I do. In that regard I'm very lucky. Lots of opportunity for learning as well as teaching...like, man, I'm freaking old now!
I've been divorced for nearly 10 years, live with my Chihuahua Moe and my cat Fang and am enjoying it. I have spent a majority of my adult life in a partnership...marriage or other committed relationships. I'm a good partner. I like sharing time with people and enjoy alone time as well. I am considerate and respectful even when I don't agree with you. I try to make the best of circumstances beyond my control and try to live every day as if it was a vacation.
I practice yoga a lot. I used to run. Even ran a marathon, but now yoga's my thing. This is not a passing phase. Yoga has become integral to my daily being. I am grounded and try to live in the present moment. If I have time I'd rather walk to and from places (but often don't have that much time). I prefer first hand experience whenever possible.
I am looking to share time with someone authentic, smart, interesting and challenging. Let me know if that's you.
Also if you know good vegetarian restaurants around these parts...particularly bi bim bap.
