Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I moved back to my native Boston in 2011 after 20+ years in San
Francisco and several years in New York . LA and London . I miss
only the theater
and my friends in New York and the weather and large gay population
in San Francisco. I like going to the opera
, theater and films
. My closest relatives and best
friend live in Boston . I love vegetarian
food and languages ,
I hitchhiked as far as Greece when I was in college in England On
my way back from Greece , I was picked up by a caravan of Roma
gypsies and at age 19 saw breast-feeding close-up for the first
time . The gypsy queen took good care of me until the Greek police
forced me to leave, as the gypsies were being escorted out of the
country . I also went to my first nude beach near Ibiza when I was
in my '20's ( I took off my bathing suit behind a bush , of course
In addition to my JP synagogue , I meditate in Boston with an LGBT
Buddhist group and attend the Arlington St . Unitarian Church most
Sundays .In SF I used to go to meditation retreats in the Redwoods
with the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence and later with another
men's group which was similar to the Radical Faeries.. In Boston I
have gone to the GAYLA Men's retreat and the Nehrim Jewish Men's
retreat. I sang with the SF Gay Men's chorus and the LA Gay men's
Chorus. . I sing with the Boston Gay Men's Chorus and Koleinu , a
Jewish Chorus . I love British mysteries and watch more TV than go
to films . I contra dance and go to community theater in JP and
occasional to classical and jazz concerts.
I am considerate , bright , kind , a good listener and am able to
draw people out on almost any subject .
