My description:

NAMASTE y'all!

Well-seasoned (1008 year old) Gentleman & Scholar

Bohemian romantic Artist & Academic                

Grew up veggie Left Coast literate leftie Bay Area redwoods nature mystic poetic free spirit boho brainiac & So-Cal beach-town drug-free folkie beat hippie flowerchild backpacking bookworm, co-founder organic commune mountain sanctuary, nonviolent campus organizer, contemplative-activist: peace, freedom, eco-social justice, war resistance underground railroad conductor, 3 yrs homesteading Canadian peace refugee...Onward planet pilgrim...3 yrs silent meditation retreat...Well-traveled, have lived & loved various locales, sacred & scenic...

Presently, Southwest-rooted interdisciplinary critical free thought champion, mild-mannered armchair subversive, slightly dog-eared, heinously underpaid humanities faculty: world history & cultures, world literature, comparative world religions...(now teach mostly online).

Exhilarated by mountain forest hiking, beachside en plein air painting, poetry notebook/sketchbook scribbling:

"Hike ten thousand mountains--seek out strange peaks & make sketches of them" (Shitao).       

"My fingers Emit sparks of fire with Expectations of my future labours" (Blake).

Meditation teacher, retreat leader, spiritual guide well-trained for decades by Himalayan Vedic Hindu & Buddhist masters, other traditional elders. Daily early morning, evening meditation/dharma practice since childhood, traditional ancient thanks-offering ceremonies nourish, strengthen my inner core.

Not "religious"--spiritual empiricist, aspiring to "Kindness is my religion."   

Spirituality (conscious evolution) is as compassion does.                                                                                                                        

Dedicated to pathless path exploration. All humane persons equally welcome at my garden table as fellow workers for our conscious co-evolution.

Always room at my inner & domestic altars for honoring all wisdom beings--hereditary ancestral elders & adopted teachers: "All my relations."


Avidly eschew all dogmatism, drama, hidebound presuppositional dyspeptic predispositions, unloving culture-bound prejudicial provincialism (--as I was saying to the hangman's beautiful daughter, when...).

Dig spontaneous random road trips.... camping, junking, festivals, retreats, odd museums, small college towns...

Love eclectic arts, music, films, cultures, eccentric family, friends of all backgrounds, all ages...

Relish my own down-home organic cooking--Ayurvedic Indian & worldbeat wok-bop; also love dining out--Thai, Greek, Mexican, Chinese, Japanese--anything veg. Occasional classic veggie junk snack-attack; sometimes summer fruitarian. 

Cherish comfy-cozy home-life: quiet, bookish, arty boho & aloha breezy dancey; but let's also romp chomp stomp together round more of our gorgeous planet.... share astonishing adventures, whacky tales, delicious meals & daily hearty peals of endless laughter...

Hopeless romantic; fiercely loving, staunchly supportive equal partner, loyal best friend. Indefatigable cuddle-junkie, love to hold hands while strolling,...acutely affectionate but not clingy. Strongly protective, but also honor sovereignty, self-actualization.  

Silly dancer, crunchy gentle mensch. Share bedtime reading, storytelling.

Love listening to you! Drink you in like moonlight, sunshine. 

Seeking:

"Be yourself--everyone else is already taken" (Oscar Wilde).

I'm always open to making new friends of extremely wide varieties of personality, lifestyle, etc.

BUT I'm really seeking my ultimate romantic ideal better-half.

There are always many more inner & outer adventures ahead to discover, explore & enjoy…

I'm wishing to share them all with a trusty true-love, solid soulmate, loyal best-friend, heart-of-gold life-partner, “fearless librarian-by-day, wallflower go-go-dancer eco-warrior-by-night” (ha!), badass-fem cheetah-lamb yogini adventuress, domestic peace goddess, cosmic cowgirl, fellow householder-recluse, kickass saint-errant wannabe…

Loving-kindness, integrity, selfless ego-transcendence is essential, but also very important is acute creative intelligence & avid intellectual curiosity.

(A very high IQ—while a ridiculously limited metric, of course—is extremely sexy!                       

Humane brainiacs turn me on!)                 

My life is dedicated to cultivating natural unfoldment of holistic consciousness; & my profession involves study & teaching of ongoing history of spiritual, intellectual, creative-artistic, cultural-academic literary, philosophical thought...so we must share some mutual interest in such things as all-round best-friends, lovers, life-partners... 

“How do most people live without any thought? There are many people in the world,—you must have noticed them in the street,—how do they live? How do they get strength to put on their clothes in the morning?” (Emily Dickinson).

Nature supports the pure of heart.  Sarvamangalam - Good luck to all.
