enough? i feel much younger than my chronological age, in
body and spirit.
in my ideal, intimate relationship:
conversation flows easily between us and there are lots of questions asked--not to challenge, but to understand. eye
contact is easy and often.
when we are dining or gathering with friends and enjoying
our separate conversations, you may reach for my hand or
connect your knee or foot to mine as a sweet reminder of
our connection. you openly share your opinions and passions
and encourage me to do the same. you are gentle, kind and
open minded and like to laugh, if not at the joke, at yourself.
i know you're out there...
i enjoy playing many sports...tennis, ping-pong,
volleyball, softball. outdoor activities: biking, hiking, gardening, sculpting my
living space, tree hugging, swimming.
good hand/eye coordination gives
one confidence in other facets of life-- my sons are a testament to that (in my unbiased opinion :-). both have amazing athletic
skills, and are confident, well adjusted young men. i never had to be that "frustrated athlete" father, who tried to live it through his kids--my kids have given me (and themselves!) some of the most memorable athletic moments in our lives--plus many others as well.
i come from a talented, eclectic, artistic, and musical family.
i try to view situations, people, the world as 'objectively' as possible, while being aware of my own personal biases. maybe i'll be a judge someday when i grow up.
you have to work pretty hard for me not to like you or give you the benefit of the doubt.
in general, i try to be a responsible citizen of the world.
i am truly humbled by the beauty (zion national park) and
forces (sandy and katrina) of nature. if it's not too late, maybe we can actually get on a path to leave at least a semblance of a sustainable planet to future generations.
i am the father of two young men, 26 and 28, of whom i am very proud.
i have a great support system of family and close friends, many of whom go back 20, 30, 40, and more than a few 50 years.
i'm told that i'm funny...humor is in the eyes, ears, nose and throat of the beholder!
i'm also told that i have excellent kissing skills---try me!
my ambition is to find a 50 to 60-something, confident, caring, intelligent, honest, fit, passionate and compassionate woman.
i'd like to make it to 80+,
healthy and happy...sharing it with the love of my life.
