I LOVE central park and museums. My favorites are the Metropolitan and the natural history.
When i am talking to you my cellphone is off, I will give you my full attention, look you in the eye and I will hear every word you say to me - life is more fun when you are paying attention. Am I the only one who feels that way ?

What I’m doing with my life
Semi retired - architect and contractor - taking time to slow things down even more and really enjoy each day in ever greater awareness as I redesign my daily life and try to see the world better and clearer. I go walking in central park and to the gym and swim and sauna almost everyday and I am in really great shape - been eating really healthy too. I love my life.
I’m really good at
anything creative, being me, giving and receiving massages, anything in business, investing, cooking, building, fixing things, solving problems, being a great friend, seeing through the bullshit, listening, reading, advising and helping people, relaxing, finding the best thing on the menu or on tv
