I am a scholar (Buber), graphic artist (restorational). I enjoy of all the arts, both in creating it and understanding the creativity of others. I have read widely and deeply; love scrabble, chess, pool, and puzzles.
Being around nature is important to me; but is best shared. Healthy cooking and eating brings enjoyment to me. Note, I am not a sports guy at all, so you won't find me in any sports bars; nor will I make you a TV/computer widow. ;-) I do enjoy long walks and yoga. Dancing too, though not in a too noisy or smoky place. Touch is cherished much by me: cuddling, hold hands, massages, and warm silence.
To be upfront, due to my mother having Rubella, I was born with various life long disabilities: legally blind and deaf. Yes, feel free to ask anything about my disabilities. I consider my disabilities a blessing not a curse. I like who I am and becoming. I am very independent as much as I can.
Please understand I cannot drive a car. And out of respect to you, I don't expect you to drive more than a half hour for us to meet. If you cannot deal with my lack of driving, please look elsewhere. No, I am not interested in long-distance anything.
My friends consider me a sensitive, warm, caring, and generous man. I have a big heart one can lean on and open ears to hear your heart/mind. A spiritual life is important to me, so I do nurture it; if wanted, I help others nurture their faith. I am Jewish, Reformed branch, but am not strictly bound by that branch. Being a freethinker and valuing freethinking is upmost importance to me.
As for relationships, sharing freely life's tears and laughter is an important part of growing friendships and loveships. I strive to be a responsible romantic. I am not clueless about relationships. A loveship for me is created by two over time, not come all at once, not blind and not fate. The lifeblood for both friendships and love-ships is honest, free and full communication of mind and heart that grows the relationship. I have much to share, nothing to hide, nor games to play.
If you are young enough to be my child or are married, please move on.
If you have just broken up, feeling sorry yourself, unsure you want to date/relationship, or looking for a one night fling, please move on.
Thanks for reading about me, shalom
