I am passionate about passion. In life and on a personal end. So who am I you ask. Well the goal here is bare all because like you I am here to meet a match. So here goes:I feel young and have the young spirit. I feel better and am in better shape today than 20 years ago and that feels great and gives me goals to shoot for personally.What drives me is a love for life and to live it or as James dean said years ago, "Live it or it will go away before you even know it."Smart and love engaging conversationPolitica lly aware and on the liberal sideLove to bike, hike, snowshoeLove to cook, eat good food (everything from Al's to the Kitchen Table)Love wineLove to have a ball and laughI miss the ocean as I am from Long Island NY but have been here for 20 years I Love to travel ( was in Rome in 2006). Like to kayak, swim and anything else in the water. What else. I am a hopeless Romantic and love to love. Very passionate and tactile. I am the kind of man that when a disagreement arises I want to talk and not go into the cave. I do dishes, laundry, love to cook for my love and give massages. I am not the kind of man who spends his Sundays watching football. The Superbowl OK but would rather enjoy life. Really this is me. So how did all this occur? My mom brought me up right. A good Jewish mom. I love her dearly.I drink my decaf coffee each day out of this cup that has this saying.go for long walks, indulge in hot baths, question your assumptions, be kind to yourself, live for the moment, loosen up, scream, curse the world, count your blessings, just let go, just be.-carol shields. I am not into games at all I will say that I am a firm believer in communication. Open and free.
