I'm a good communicator, interesting, fun, funny, witty, kind and honest (I always return lost wallets whenever I find them). I have a strong sense of ethics and always try to be fair and sensitive to others.
Close friends have told me that I'm warm, compassionate, intuitive, open, unpretentious and down to earth. I guess I could be described as a good balance of both head and heart. I constantly look for the interesting and out of the ordinary aspects of life and especially love great conversation and sharing thoughts and feelings. I love the theater, films, yoga, all types of music (especially jazz), the ocean (scuba diving), most outdoor nature experiences, museums, art and animals (mostly anything with four legs). I'm also generally well behaved in public.
I love to sing and have been told I have a beautiful voice (all humility aside). An avid reader of just about anything interesting, I'll try most anything at least once (well, most of the time anyway). Well-traveled, I've been just about around the world especially all over India and Asia.
Just as a side note, little kids and animals seem to like me a lot.
I'm 5 foot 8 and a half inches tall (this is as close to 6 feet as I can manage), in good shape, health-oriented but not compulsive about it and spiritually inclined. Have short curly hair, bright blue/hazel eyes and my dentist says I have really great teeth. People are always amazed to find out my age.
heal thousands of dogs from all over the world. I'm also involved in a couple of other projects at the moment in the holistic health world...
I highly believe in being of service and volunteer my time and energy whenever I can.
And then of course, there's the fun stuff like theater, music, nature and traveling. I think my next trip will be to visit New England in the fall and see how beautiful it is.
All humility aside, I'm often told I have a beautiful speaking voice.
"Passionate Presence" - Catherine Ingram, "A Ticket to the Circus" - Norris Mailer, "The Women" - T.C. Boyle, "E=MC2- A Biography of the Famous Equation", "The Social Life of Dogs" , "The End of Faith" by Sam Harris, Omnivore's Dilemma - Michael Pollan, a lot of Pema Chodron, and I'm re-reading Stephen Levine's "Who Dies"...
I listen to: KPFK, KCRW and other public supported radio. Love James Howard Kunstler's blog, and read it every Monday morning as well as John Michael Greer's blog too.
Some of my favorite types of music are the ballads from the 30's and 40's – Gershwin, Cole Porter, Johnny Mercer and all of those guys, Classical and Brazilian (I love anything sung in Portuguese). Show me any Fred Astaire movie and I’m a happy guy. Audrey Hepburn still melts my heart. I think I was born in the wrong era and would have loved being my age way back then; they just don’t make clothes, music or movies like they used to…
Compassion (not a thing, but it's real important)
If you are highly judgmental and have a shopping list of expectations we're probably not a good match. If you welcome the world every morning with anticipation for what the day will bring, then we need to discover if there is chemistry between us...
