My description:

happy, peaceful, water, wind, children, walking, caring for others, rain, apples, art, laughing, loving, hugs, sharing, friends, music, learning, sun, giving, just being

sitting quietly by a stream deep in the forest
listening to the wind flow through the trees
sharing the earth with cloud shadows
drawing memories of spring light

Love people and animals (not necessarily in that order), music (oh, to be reborn as an Irish fiddler), art (raised with an eye for Andrew Wyeth), laughter (social and medicinal), running (meditation in motion), walking (to see, and for holding hands), family (equilibrium with an attitude), conversation (in search of someone), food (raw vegan simplicity), reading (learning and entering), hands (creating) My spiritual orientation: earth centered; though not a practicing Buddhist, I am mindful of the ethical precepts. For fun: attend a dance performance (big fan),concert (broad range, eclectic), poetry reading, running, time with friends and family, good conversation, writing, painting, sculpting. Some favorites: Natalia Zukerman singing, Fred Astaire dancing and singing, writing of Marvin Bram, Pat Wictor singing, writing of Jean Liedloff, music of David Amram, apples, bananas, strawberries, my adult children. (We share our hugs, opinions, disagreements and laughs.)

I need not receive
In return for giving.
I caress an injured bird
Because it is in pain.
I embrace my children
Because I love them.
I guide a blind man
Across the street
Because he needs help.
I look in awe at a sunset
Because it is beautiful.
I know a full life.
I live in order to spend myself
Enriching the fountain
The more I draw on it.

adapted from "A Higher Joy" by Ben Zion Bokser

Music:  appalachian to zydeco, albinoni to zelenka, world indigenous to jazz to celtic to indian to...


Interested in someone who is open-minded, compassionate, honest, easygoing and easy to talk with, appreciates intimate (in the broadest sense) relationships, loves animals and might enjoy a spontaneous moment of slow dancing on a street corner at midnight. Someone who "gets" this - "making love is a way of getting high, perhaps ultimately the only way. we make love when we walk down the street and smile at an old person; we make love when we pet an animal. in all of our daily interrelating with beings and with things, we either create more love or break down the love that exists."
