My self-summary
When I am outdoors I enjoy, hiking, in a park, walking in Manhattan, or running in my neighborhood. I am dedicated to fitness and health, delicious fruits and vegetables make staying healthy easy, and feeling good after a run and workout add incentive to keeping fit.

I think visually, and am grateful photography was invented prior to my arrival; otherwise I would have had to invent it myself. It’s kind of sad to see the decline of film and the wet darkroom, even though computer editing speeds up creativity, seeing a silver image slowly immerge, in the tray and doing it all in the dark gave me a feeling of being a sorcerer. When I do that in my drawing, I still feel that power of a sorcerer. It’s a pleasure being able to see all the magical images artists have created in our museums, and photography galleries.

It’s a wonder that laughter is still free, I would have thought an activity that feels so good and is free would have been banned or taxed by the government by now. If ever they realize how good sex feels, look out for a sexxx tax.

Thankfully my sense of humor is healthy, intact and not taxable.
Science seems to invoke magic; astronomy, chemistry, physics, biology, psychology, are all interests of mine. Learning about and letting my imagination wander amidst the intangible, incredibly large, unbelievably small, and invisible generate a sense of wonder in me.

I am generous, curious,, and compassionate
What I’m doing with my life
Working in the financial industry using computers.
I build websites for mostly for visual artists because of my visual nature. I get to see wonderful artwork and create a design around it, to highlight and make it the center of focus.
Study drawing at the ASL, take photographs and think about how to do it more creatively.
Spending time with friends and laughing it up with them.
Attending NYAS lectures, or AMNH talks.
Attending workshops or classes at Omega Institute, Kripula, and Integral Yoga, reading, learning, and laughing.
Traveling. I have been to France, Germany, Austria and Italy and, have many more places I want to explore.
There is so much more to see. Of course, it doesn't matter if you are in Paris or Pittsburgh, if you are with the right person

I greatly curtailed TV watching after I rediscovered NPR and WNYC radio. PBS TV has always been on my menu, The News Hour, Nova, Frontline, Bill Moyer's journal, Nature. Its good radio with pictures. The Lost TV seris.

You should message me if
You want to be treated with respect as an equal. You wonder about the answers to BIG questions. You find beauty in truth, art, music, nature, children, animals, cats, dogs. You like being romanced. Read the nutrition labels on food items in the market. Stop to smell a rose or Lilac when you have no time to. You are not obsessed with accumulating “stuff” as George Carlin said. You embrace feelings good or bad and aren’t afraid to show them or understand them. Then write me already. Be well. Namaste.
