We live once--so why miss the richness around us? I am a hedonist, reveling in sensory pleasures--but with a bohemian rather than an elitist style. Let's share gourmet meals, the music of a symphony, the thrill of a thunderstorm, cozy getaways in the country, breathtaking meteor showers, the feel of your warm skin through sensual fabrics. Since I enjoy exploring philosophical questions, science discoveries and mysteries, world events and movements, and how people relate and feel, please be someone who loves to converse!
To borrow, I'm "embodied masculine" but with a more even balance of yin/yang than the typical guy. Chemistry is ineffable and desirable, but shared values make the foundation for a lasting connection: So I seek someone who yearns to live in a truly just and humane society, and is kind and compassionate. I feel that humans are responsible to make our own meaning (rather than find it in religions, gods or gurus.) Hence I'm seeking someone whose beliefs are based in reason, evidence and compassion rather than in religion; we are all we have, and must take care of each other. I'm moved by the poignancy of people showing compassion and presence of mind especially in the midst of great suffering or duress. To sow seeds for a different world, I strive to encourage compassion and awareness particularly in the young boys I teach.
Whew that all sounds so serious, but read on:
I'm upbeat, and generally happy. I find the best in a situation. I love to have fun. I've got my dad's sense of humor, with some Lenny Bruce, Mort Sahl, Lily Tomlin, Maureen Dowd and Steven Wright mixed in; I love to evoke chuckles with quips, wry observations, double entendre and witty word play. Let me make you laugh!
