Ideas and creativity of all sorts inspire me, as do conversations on topics of the mind and heart. I have an intense philosophical side alongside a playful lighthearted side. I’m drawn to unconventional thinking.. to people who are warm and genuine and maybe rough around the edges at times.
As one of six kids, raised by two eccentric New Yorkers in Kansas City, I know what it means to feel like a foreign particle.
For years I’ve been teaching public high school and it brings a special meaning to my life.
I’m hoping to find someone who has a huge heart and mind, someone who is poetic, daring, deeply curious, morally upright and free-thinking. I value people who know how to be natural. It's refreshing to come across people who behave without affectation. Humility is also a trait I find very appealing and in short supply.
I am looking for a man who can see the world's absurdities, laugh at them, cry at them but not get swallowed up by them.
I’m not afraid to be idealistic or romantic, and dream big, even though I’m practical and know in what I should be grounded. I want dramatic romance in my life. I’m not sure what exactly that will look like but I'm open to discovering it in unexpected ways.
I am very active...I ride my bike everywhere, love high intensity training and trying out new sports like surfing, kite surfing or anything really. I'm very adventurous that way.
I love to go hiking and camping but I haven’t done those things regularly for a long time. I used to live in the desert in Israel and I’d go on long hikes into the wilderness almost every day. I remember thinking to myself, how will I ever live without access to this natural beauty? I’m still wondering the same thing.
That's the type of work I'm drawn to.
Certain work has left a special mark on my life and the way I respond to the world. Here is some of it:
Man's Search for Meaning by Victor Frankl, Junot Diaz, The works of Emily Dickinson, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Walt Whitman, Langston Hughes Mark Twain, George Orwell, Garcia Marquez, W.B.Yeats, John Keats, Theodore Roethke, Elizabeth Bishop, John Ciardi, Claribel Alegria, Roque Dalton, Cesar Vallejo, SHAKESPEARE.
I could go on and on and on...great writers have always been a shaping and influential force in my life.
I love reading books which teach me about concepts, history, inventions, people, culture...
I don't own a TV...distracting, and there are so many distractions these days!
I love films, just usually not ones which are formulaic or lacking in any subtlety. Generally I love that which captures some truth about human yearning.
Sarah Vaughan, Ray Charles, Nina Simone, Pablo Milanes, Silvio Rodriguez, Rolling Stones, Bon Iver, Cesaria Evora, Brahms, Debussy, Andy Irvine, Johnny Cash, Lucinda Williams
Tom Jobim, Caetano Veloso, Thelonius Monk, Sam Cooke, Etta James, Al Green, Gillian Welch and a lot more.
I have a real soft spot in my heart for folk and bluegrass, jazz and blues, bossa nova, samba, traditional Irish music, and klezmar. I'm always open and enthusiastic to discover new talent and genres.
the book I am reading at the moment...
my loved ones...
how to be a better teacher...
how to live an inspired life...
How easy it is to subscribe to cliched and processed modes of living... Where is the independent thought and imagination?
If you're ready.
I'm attracted to men who are masculine, warm, and very active.
