My self-summary
Hi, I'm a kind-hearted and creative guy, seeking a dynamic, fun, loyal, and deep relationship. I am often struck by the beauty of women, and welcome the opportunity to devote myself to an equally devoted woman. " The poet Rumi says that our longing is ultimately a longing for the experience of the divine. I do not think of this as something found particularly in religions. All of life is divine, don't you think? So I am interested in relationship that is committed to supporting the richness of our life journeys. I'm a musician, meditator, and teacher of philosophy, Buddhism, world religions, and creativity.

For many years I unschooled my two beautiful sons as a single dad, and they are have grown and flown into amazing young men. I now work with unschooling teens in the same way. I'm enthusiastic, playful, and visionary. I also enjoy being silly and doing ordinary things -- like hiking and playing volleyball and listening to music. I'm a loyal friend, and I am interested in creating an interpersonal atmosphere that we can all flourish in. I like to empower others. Here's a lyric I try to live by:

Wake now discover that you are the eyes of the world
Wake now discover that you are the song that the morning brings.
