I exercise regularly but not obsessively. I used to run and work out with weights and I've practiced yoga and meditation off and on for many years. I have learned a lot in men's groups as well as personal and couples counseling, journaling, breath-work, improv dance and art. I like to walk and hike in the forest or along the beach. I eat a healthy diet and I'm in good shape and in excellent health with longevity in my family. I generally have a positive attitude but also question things deeply. I've learned to value my relationship with my parents since becoming a parent although they live far away and my grandmother was one of my best friends. Most of my friends live in San Francisco and I like to visit with them once in a while. I have 2 boys in their teens; one who lives with me part time. As they are growing to greater independence I have more free time every year. This does not limit me but give me opportunities to grow and learn new things.
I grew up in a Jewish family and culture in the Boston area, went to school surrounded the forests, rolling hills and farmland of Vermont and then to Grad school in the bustling crazy quilt of cultures of San Francisco. I've travelled throughout the U.S. by car, plane and hitchhiking, I've studied and travelled throughout India for 5 months and lived in Dharamsala with a Tibetan family and studied their culture, art, language and religion. Eventually I plan on travelling more but for I now my life is focused on enjoying life on this friendly little island.
I've been on enough dates and made some new friends here but I would prefer to find a long term relationship that is nurturing, passionate, healthy and inspired. I don't expect anyone to have all the same interests just an open heart and mind. Learning to dance together would be nice but I'm open to learning and trying new things that interest my partner as well.
Please feel free to say hello. It's ok for women to initiate contact too.
