I’m lucky to have a vocation that, in part, involves some of my avocations – film, theater, music, art. Some people who only know me casually think that film (or movies, but not Cinema – too pretentious), from most countries and genres, is my main love, but they don't know me very well - I like most music (esp. old rock and roll, [traditional American, classical). I'm into art & architectural history, photography; and I'mcurious about just about everything; that's probably why I'm a librarian (also I couldn't decide on which of many professions I'd like to go into; I love to help people find what they're looking for). I also seem to like run-on sentences, though I'm generally grammatical. None of these things are complete without someone to share with – the rhythm of the music, the elation after a really good film when the lights come up, a fantastic sunset….
Haven't had a long-term romantic relationship in a few years, and at this point I'm a less sure about love at first sight than I was when younger, though I remain a romantic. A romantic relationship should be based, in large part, upon friendship anyway.
Just a few more odds and ends for right now:
Was raised Jewish, butI’m not fond of organized religion (although some of the ritual - hymns, etc,- fascinate me); I feel that it’s one of the causes of all the ill in the world, along with greed and the lust for power. I believe in the Golden Rule, the brotherhood of man, and a healthy respect for our place in nature.
I'd better shut up and leave a little to the imagination. I'm very open to being asked questions, and generally like as open communication as possible - have found that both friendships and romantic relationships don't last without openness, sharing, and general concern for the other party.
I am honest, intelligent, and like people
