My self-summary
Finally an empty nester, and ready to seek a loving relationship if it fits right.
Life is good. I just started a non profit dedicated to affordable housing.
What I’m doing with my life
I enjoy biking .dining out, hiking, photography and lately doing projects around the house. I like live music , visiting nearby wineries and hiking in the mountains. Those pictures of my pond in my backyard show the pond I built with the help of my son and a few friends. I'm enjoying painting my house fixing things and expanding my flower garden.I am social friendly outgoing but als lo enjoy time alone for reading quietness ..I have two grown children as well as a 16 year old. While we used to share custody he seems to be at my house more lately but he is leaving for prep school in two weeks . He is a hockey player, much to my concern.
I am not into organized religion, but i do have a spiritual perspective and try to go to a wed night Buddhist style meditation in Bethesda from time to time. I was raised in a culturally Jewish home.To me spirituality involves finding peace of mind , an attitude of gratitude for everything , feeling true compassion and developing an open heart.
I’m really good at
Communication and being intuitive. .i have the social warmth of an extrovert and the enjoyment not of solitude of an introvert.
Eating reasonably healthy, mostly veg and fish. My key to staying fit and thin is eating less. I find by doing that and exercising i can enjoy some ice cream and junk!
I am not judgmental about others eating habits, we all have our strengths and weaknesses. I certainly have no reason to be self righteous .
The first things people usually notice about me
My emotional warmth.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I enjoy some tv like John Stewart, John Oliver, Criminal Minds(it's a bit violent but the acters and their character development and how the do profiling is interesting.Books. starting where you are, by chorus. . i am presently reading "This Changes Everything" by Naomi Klein about climate change, and the New Yorker. I listen to segments ofT TED from NPR but i listen to the podcasts. I listen to 'all things Considered'
Dylan, Neil Young Steve Winwood from the old days, Coldplay Ray LaFontaine, Gillian Welch happy song, Bruno, current music scene is great also. Small jazz and Blues Venues etc
Npr, Huffington Post, New Yorker, New York Times. I often see Indie movies in Shirlington, and go to Busboy and Poets, Carlyle,or the Thai restaurant Strathmore. Birchmere
The six things I could never do without
Family, health, seeking grace and humility and compassion
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The world as we know and finding peace of mind and joy in the little things in life despite our crazy world. I recently cut the cable chord when i thought i was watching to much TV and it has been a pleasure doing more reading, listening to more music and more activities.
Staying emotionally balanced through good times and bad, and these days concern about Trump, and wish our country and world selected better options. I am afraid it says something about our world,
Finding peace of mind and happiness despite all this to me, is essential
On a typical Friday night I am
At the gym or at home relaxing, or out with friends, movies, puttering around the house, garden or pond In my backyard
