--- while we work to "bend the arch of the moral universe toward justice" (Dr. King)
Community organizer/ documentary filmmaker, intensely committed to activism; relieve stresses of changing the world by relishing exuberance of rock and salsa, indulging joyfulness of folkdance and lindy, embracing romantic visions of Sinatra and Motown. Wanderlust for what’s novel; innately curious about all of which I know little. The struggle to make a difference must be mischievous, joyful, and fun.
Activist for educational excellence and equity; writer/producer/director of "Working For Change, Making A Difference", introduced and narrated by a Nobel Peace Prize laureate. (www.publicissuefilms.com). Finance my filmmaking by free lance location scouting and managing in the TV commercial production industry.
Like Emma Goldman, if I can't dance I don't want to be part of your revolution, so currently, I salsa, swing, and tap. But don't be intimidated. I am a jack of many styles, master of none, and would love a partner with whom we can both improve while in each other's arms.
I am intensely loyal --- committed to beliefs and people. I was faithfully married for almost 25 years. Loving father to a 24 year old daughter who is currently living in the Middle East, studying Arabic and Hebrew so as to help promote peace and justice between Jews and Palestinians.
I strive for openness, frankness, and engagement in conflict resolution processes. When seriousness fails, there is always room for a joke. Thus, I learned everything essential about parenting from Garrison Keiler's "Pretty Good Joke Book" -- typical wisdom: what is the difference between boogers and broccoli? Kids don't eat broccoli.
My father was a political organizer; my mother was Arlo Guthrie's nursery school teacher who accompanied Woody on the piano when he came to the classroom with a banjo, harmonica and foot drum to try out songs on the kids. Though I have no musical instrument dexterity, I absorbed the iconoclasm of both.
Therefore, I seek a women to laugh with me about the absurdities of our society while fighting like hell to change it.
