A bit of a dreamer, I love thought provoking questions, nature, art, music and dancing. I've been in DC for almost three years. Having gotten to a point in my career where I feel comfortable for the time being, I am finally learning to enjoy life the way I want to enjoy it outside of work: go out to concerts, cafes, bars, dance (I really like Tango, but it does take two), see new and old art, try new sports (rock climbing lately), spend time with friends, build snow-men, lay out in the grass on a warm spring and summer day, play soccer after work, see the cherry blossoms or water front, hike for meditation and friendship, watch a movie and play my piano.
I keep Shabbat because it gives me a chance to relax, be grateful, see friends, go for a walk, make good food and catch up on good reading. But this doesn't mean you have to. :)
I've been searching for man who knows how to laugh, have a lighthearted attitude, patience and good communication a good friend, who will enjoy traveling or hiking up a mountain with me, dancing, and enjoying life's surprises.
A little bit about my past - I used to teach piano when studying at Sarah Lawrence in New York, then traveled to Poland and my birth-town in Ukraine after which history became crucial to me. During and after my masters at University of Toronto, I made a short career out of this in search of the answers to why and how hatred or social beliefs between such similar people with different faiths could move them to do create such horror. My love for music drew me back into the 21st century and reminded me that life is about living, not digging for history's bones. Yet I like to think that my current work is still meaningful, looking to work on the future rather than sit in the past.
