I believe in passion in all parts of my life and seek that out in my work and relationships. I love being in my body, and doing things that engage all my senses--touch, taste, sight, sound. I enjoy exploring body movement like the 5 Rhythms. I love working out on a regular basis and I am often on a bike or the elliptical. Riding my bike around Brooklyn and walking city streets and country trails gives me a lot of pleasure.
I am a warm, caring, open-minded person who is interested in other people. My other interests: translating Ladino literature, urban culture, Indie movies, annual pilgrimages to the New Orleans Jazz Fest, novels & memoirs, family and friends.
I would love to be with a man who is warm, compassionate, honest, intelligent, & sensual; someone who sees adventure in everyday life; someone who is passionate and into exploring all aspects of a relationship, someone who has an appreciation of high and low culture--that means we can read Rilke’s poetry one moment and watch Seinfeld the next. We would both find conventionality boring.
I am open-minded, warmhearted, and curious.
Connecting with friends and family, having adventures, reading novels, traveling whenever I can, walking the city streets, journaling, moving my body.
