Friends would say that I am fun and funny and loved by children and animals, great and small. Friends would also say that I love to listen to and to play music, paint, converse, and have new experiences. Friends would also say that I treat others with respect and that systems of social distinction don't intimidate me- that I can hang out with Presidents or the homeless guy on the street, and enjoy myself and be myself just the same.
Former lovers would say that I cuddle, discuss, and like to be all sweet and romantic like- that I like to cook meals without recipes, and at times go to "high culture" places while keeping "low culture" topics on the table (albeit quietly and under my breath). They would also say that I love to make out.
My current and former students would say that I am a teacher and a philosopher who values their contributions, clarity and charity in interpreting the world and interacting with others, and Times New Roman 12 point font. They would also say my bullshit detector is in excellent working order and that I use it often. They would say I have high standards but that I am very fair and love ideas, if it is possible to love ideas...
I would say I listen to NPR and the BBC while I sleep, as I like tomorrow's news today. I eat my vegetables and want to find someone who does the same. I think a lot about being greener and leaving a lighter footprint, and have perfected my cleaning mix of tea tree oil, baking soda, and vinegar for cleaning tubs. My other strategy to leave a lighter foot print is levitation. However, that is proceeding more slowly than I anticipated.
I am looking for someone who likes to try new things, cares about the world, and others. I like to hold hands in public and you should too. I am good with strangers and can talk to anyone. I listen and then speak, but sometimes I get excited and speak rather quickly. I like movies but don't care for sports or video games. (I might go to a baseball game or a soccer match once and a while, but that would be for the people watching and the overpriced hot dogs).
I love Indian food, salad, steak, and I want to learn to speak more languages. I also like to take classes on diverse subjects. I think about how I can be a better person a lot, but truth be told, it is a work in progress.I am considerate, fun, smart, and kind.
I moved back to NYC from Toronto, where I was working to build a school. Prior to moving back here, I lived in NYC, Chicago, California, Boston, and Minnesota. Now I am back in New York. Yep. Back.
