Who am I looking for? A kind, thoughtful, creative, honest, well-educated, health-conscious, patient, and affectionate gentleman who shares my values and some of my interests and who would like to explore friendship leading to a long-term committed relationship.
A retired editor, I've volunteered as an editor at an environmental organization, as a desk docent at an art museum, and with Habitat for Humanity, as well as in the Howard Dean and then John Kerry campaigns. I've also volunteered with The Nature Conservancy, the Kreeger Museum, a university hospital neonatal department, and elsewhere.
In addition to everything else I do, I'm a contra dancer and have also done swing, Cajun, and a tiny bit of Scandinavian couple dancing.
I've lived in eight states and particularly loved the northern California coast. I've also spent a fair amount of time in Rome and traveled in France, Germany, Holland, Belgium, and Lichtenstein as well, enjoying getting to know people of many cultures.
My spiritual search has led me to attending Friends Meeting for several years, to Buddhist study and participation in a weekly meditation group, to a Taoist study group, to Unitarianism, and to a commitment to the environment and its conservation. I feel we are all one with nature. We're not above or outside it but in it. I'm troubled by the overwhelming materialism in our throwaway culture and try to focus my life elsewhere.
