Have identified as a "Bu-Jew" (born Jewish, practicing Buddhism) for the past 7 years. This past year I've found resonance with John Tarrant's Pacific Zen community and am pleasantly surprised how much I am enjoying koan practice. Meditation is a key part of my life, and it would be a joy to share with a partner.
I play electric & acoustic guitar (well); sing (passably); dance (swing, Contra, rock & roll); and enjoy listening to jazz. Am refreshed by being in Nature and like to walk--whether at Howarth Park or just around town. I enjoy cooking & my charcoal grill (mainly organic); good conversation; and laughter. I like a good video (have a cool home theater set-up), especially if cuddling is included. I work out regularly and like to stay physically active (tennis anyone?).
Looking to meet someone who enjoys the practice of being present...who can share her inner life and hear mine...and who can embrace conflict as an opportunity to grow. Hoping she finds humor in life and human foibles...is gentle with herself and others...appreciates beauty and the arts...is passionate and affectionate...and will go with me to places where neither of us have gone before!
