It is my hope to slow down, rest more, travel more and just enjoy life with a mature companion. My personal Motto is "LIVE, LAUGH and LOVE." I am a firm believer that “I am the total sum of my experiences and my experiences are ME.” I love eagles. Isaiah 40:31 states “they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” This is one of my favorite scriptures. The eagle exemplifies strength. I have gained so much strength through life experiences with the grace of God. The eagle soars high above it all. The eagle has the ability to see things from a unique perspective. God has given me the gift of discernment and as the eagle I have the ability to see things from a unique perspective.
Being me is great. I am embarking on a new journey. Im launching my son and daughter from the nest. Just as a father eagle soars high then drops his babies then waits to see them fly on their own. My kids is my greatest accomplishment. Being a single parent of an African American Male required a lot of my time and energy.
I am a "Foodie" by nature. I enjoy preparing and eating Organic, High Quality, Fresh, Raw and Nutritious Foods. I taste and prepare my food with the "composed bite" in mind. I firmly believe that healthy food is good for the the mind, soul and body. I eat according to my Blood Type and work out 3 to 5 times a week. I guess you can call me a "Gym Bunny".

If I could accomplish only one thing during the rest of my life, it would be to open an Educational Learning Center. The center would minister to the three dimensional man- Spirit, Soul and Body. The center would be a place for all to come and to gain knowledge to reach his/her spiritual, emotional, financial, physical and educational potential. Emotional healing, family restoration and academic enrichment would be addressed at the center as well. I enjoy various music genres. I guess you can say my music taste is eclectic (anything with a Latin tingle rock, Latin percussions (congas and timbales), high pitched lead guitar, Classical guitar, acoustic guitar, Tenor saxophone or violin). Of course I listen to Gospel, Praise and Worship: Cee Winans, Martha Munizzi, Darlene Zchech, Anthony Evans, Billy and Sarah Gaines. In terms of Gospel, I love Mali Music, Mississippi Mass Choir, John P. Kee, Mary Mary, Anointing and much more. I enjoy listening to Classical Jazz and Jazz: Josha Groban, Andre Bocelli, Paul Taylor, Nestor Torres and Keiko Matsui; others include, John Mayer and Michael Buble'. Marvin Gaye is my all time favorite artist. India Arie, Steven Wonder, Floetry, Santana and Donnie are a few others I like. I tune my Pandora Radio to Ocean Waves radio station morning and night. I have a large collection of Putumayo World Music. I just love music especially Live Jazz. I am not a fan of hip-hop rap but I help students learn Physics and Chemistry with Science rap songs
I am looking for a women who is ready for a MATURE relationship. I am looking for several characteristics in a relationship partner: Mental Stimulation, Chemistry, Sense of Humor, Spirituality, Emotionally Healthy, Strong Character, Organized, Emotionally Generous, Communicator, Responsible, Dependable and Fiscally Responsible. In terms of Ethnicity/Race, it is not a major factor. I have dated outside of my Ethnicity/Race. Body type is not most important but what is inside is extremely IMPORTANT to me. My partner must show self-respect in terms of her health, hygiene and habits. She must love me for ME and respect me. I am looking for friendship, companionship and intimacy. I am looking for a women grounded and rooted in the word of God. She must be romantic and not ashamed to show it. She must be passionate about life and live life without fear and regret, not afraid to please the man in his life (spirit, soul and body). She must be confident, kind, fun-loving and trustworthy. She must Dogs or at least be willing to like Dogs. Last but not least, my partner must have a vision and purpose for her life moving toward her destiny. She must know who she is, what she wants, where she is going and how she plans to get there.
Advice to others:
"What you need does not always come in the package you want"
"Find your identity in God and Self, not others."
"Never look to others to find your happiness."
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I prefer writing initially because one must truly think before writing. It takes time to write to someone. While you write you have time to truly process your thoughts and convey the essence of who you are. I am "Interview Mode" looking for Compatability. So, What are you looking for in a relationship partner? What is it like being you? What are your views about love and chemistry? Can one exist without the other?
..........Then Perhaps to Phone Call stage.
As for a first encounter, I would prefer a Caramel Macchiato with soy milk and extra shot or Caramel Frappucino at Starbucks, Barnes and Noble or any other great coffee shop that serves Jamacian Blue Mountain coffee. OR Walk and Workout together.
Second Date: Raw Food Resturant
A Romantic Date:
A romantic evening would involve cooking dinner together with good conversation, lots of laughs and smooth jazz. Then, we would eat dinner by candle light with the patio door open listening to the sounds of the ocean waves crashing. We would take an after dinner walk strolling hand in hand in the moonlight along the beach. Then we would find a spot on the beach to sit and talk or recite poetry to one another.
