I am a proud father of two grown sons who live on their own. They still want to snowboard with me in the winter or canoe up in the BWCA in the summer, backpack the Smokies in the spring, and at home we cook a meal together without getting in each other's way. I did LaLapalooza two years with them, but prefer to stay in smaller clubs. Am happy to be at Millenium Park and Ravinia for outdoor concerts.
I am spiritual, but less inclined to feel as connected to my Protestant past. Have explored Buddhism in very small doses more recently, and find nature to be where I feel more inclined to reflect. I have had my deepest spiritual experiences out in the sublimity of a canyon, mountain, seashore, forest. I spend my winter Sundays mornings in a church, but not sitting in a pew but rather working as a volunteer at a homeless shelter (P.A.D.S.).
What am I looking for? A serious relationship with a woman who is positive, honest, independent yet can share some time with me in my interests (read: active and fit - I have not been on my couch in months although I do read in a rocking chair). She has her own interests, hobbies, life. We can learn from each other, and grow and expand from the time shared. Core values and beliefs are important as is chemistry. I am a good communicator, financially secure, no drugs, drink in moderation, consider myself fit and am looking for likewise.
