I would describe myself as someone who lives life joyfully and also seriously. I believe that our main task in life is to deepen our capacity to love. I am both emotional and intellectual, and passionate about life. I'm a poet at heart and tend to view the world with wonder, awe, and optimism. My soul is most often stirred by nature, intimate and authentic connection with others, beautiful music, art, theatre, dancing tango, a really hearty laugh, and the written word. My two wonderful children are almost grown up and now I have more time in my life for someone special. I am dedicated to my family and friends and value connections and relationships with people. I feel fortunate to live in the Bay Area. I enjoy the ocean, hiking in the mountains, backpacking in the Sierras,blue sunny skies, theater and art exhibits. Nothing pleases me more than easy but meaningful conversation with people I care about, preferably with lots of laughter.
The person I'd like to meet would be someone who is loving, easygoing, intelligent, and spiritually and emotionally aware. He would be someone with whom I can share my sense of awe and wonder, who is joyful and sees the humor in life, but who is also able to experience and tolerate life's difficulties. I'd like to meet someone who truly likes themselves, and not afraid to go off the beaten path. He would be a gentle but passionate spirit. He would be comfortable with himself, and always growing.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
It doesn't so much matter to me what we do (brunch, dinner, a walk in the park), as long as there's a chance to get to know each other. Our conversation flows effortlessly. We laugh a lot and have fun.
