Currently living a rich and fulfilling life in the West Marin countryside after decades in New York and San Francisco. Traveled and cultured, a Francophile trained in three Asian languages and a long-term buddhist meditation and study practice.
I gravitate to an inclusive multicultural scene. Black lives matter, and I continue to do my inner work and be my own best friend as well as engage in community organizing, activism and political revolution. Yes, Bernie Sanders!
Experienced in long-term adult relationship and authentic emotional intimacy, I'm looking for love - a journey that begins with friendship and requires communication, compromise and commitment.
I seek companionship and authentic connection with someone unique and special - a man whose body, heart and mind fire me up, and who can be fired up by mine as well.
I worked for Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute (SIYLI) and have now settled at Point Reyes National Seashore Association, the non-profit educational and fundraising partner of the national park, within whose wild magnificence I live.
Editing, entertaining, gardening, kissing, listening and laughing.
Loving, meditating, networking, nurturing and organizing.
Relationships (intimate and casual), story-telling, Pilates, hiking and swimming.
In men, I'm attracted to unique personalities and life experiences, to individuality, and to kindness, beauty, intelligence and good communication skills.
Relationship-wise I've been usually drawn to African American guys, but am also attracted to men from India and the Middle East, the Far East, and French and Dutch men. Not averse to redheads, blonds or other guys, and generally find younger guys more interesting.
I'm fond of beards, butts and brains, and glasses.
Music: classic Jazz, the blues, gospel, pop, classical (Middle Eastern, Asian and European), Philip Glass, and world music.
Books: history and biography, mostly.
Movies: I like actors (Daniel Craig, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Alec Guinness) and actresses (Cate Blanchett, Tilda Swinton, Helen Mirren, Maggie Smith) more than specific films. I enjoy good costume dramas, foreign language, and classic British, French or Japanese movies.
Food: I'm a good cook, appreciate good food and drink, enjoy a meal with friends in or out, love Chez Panisse, Asian cuisine, picnics, Brown Sugar Kitchen in Oakland, Bette's Diner in Berkeley, and good road food.
friends and family
my home in the forest by the bay
the ability to write, think and converse
In winter I'm appreciating the comforts of home.
I'm attracted to individuals, including but not solely, adult men whose best relationships are with themselves - to me, character and confidence are the sexiest asset of all!
