Hi, thanks for checking me out.
I am a young 59 years old Caucasian male, of Russian Judaic ancestry.
I need to be direct here: 1. These are my DEAL BREAKERS: I do NOT want to involve myself with you if, you are a Republican, if you like or believe in the US military, if you smoke, if you do drugs other than as prescribed by a doctor, if you drink more than socially, on occasion, I do NOT want to involve myself with you, if you find no physical attraction in the pictures I have posted of myself, if you think by hanging with me, some of my extreme dedication to art will rub off on you and turn you into an artist, if you are interested in polygamy, if you travel internationally on a very regular basis, if you have never explored spiritual and/or psychological healing arts both on your own and with a mentor, if you claim to be free of all drama, if you claim to have no "negativity" in you at all, if you need life to always be "light" and happy, if you would not be accepting of a partner/mate who earns 30k or less a year.
It is VERY important to me that you view all my pictures and consider that this is a man that would want to kiss you, and you him, and be intimate with. I'm very tired of "Im not attracted to you physically, but let's be friends!"
Now that I have reached this age, my major goals are to try to relax, integrate all missing or shadow selves into my conscious identity, and to enjoy my gifts and life and share what enjoyment I can with a wonderful woman and a few friends.
Some of the main things I love are: Teachings of Depth Psychology, following the work of Carl Jung, music of all kinds,, harmonica, jazz, blues, R and B, Soul music, classic rock, painting, drawing, writing, living symbolically, meditation, observing nature, Native American/Native Wisdom teachings, eating healthy as much as I can, Cats, dogs, Birds, fish, mammals, the Earth, mountains, fields, Rocks and stone formations, the ocean, the Desert.
I like to walk in nature, cook together, watch independent movies, watch stand up comedy, dance, laugh as much as humanly possible.
I have a Spiritual practice influenced by many sources, but it is mainly solo meditation.
What makes me unique: I dont like this category, it seems it's mostly Self Promotion, which is usually partially a lie. But I will say, the older I get, the more I realize that no one outside of myself has MY answers, that the government and the mainstream media are largely a collective shadow drama, and that Love and Simplicity are the things I want the most.
Each day I live I try, sometimes very successfully, sometimes averagely, sometimes poorly, to evolve beyond where I have been before, at least in terms of the general patterning of what I am doing.
I would like to date a woman who is pretty mature emotionally, and who is grounded and sensible, and has a pretty clear life mission, and who is aware of her own shadow side and shadow projection. I would like her to have a romantic side!
I would like her to not be so "au natural" that she doesn't shave her legs!
I would like her not to be a smoker, drug user, or anything other than light, occasional social drinker.
I like exploring Maryland, as well as taking vacations elsewhere when I can afford to. I LOVE New Mexico, and Arizona, and hope to visit some other western states. Eventually I would love to travel to Brazil, and maybe Mexico, but this will be later.
Thanks for checking me out. Best, Ed
