I am passionate about my two sons, both living on the west coast, yoga which I started doing about eighteen months ago, college football, opera, fly-fishing and Israel. My younger son who is a senior at Oregon got me hooked on college football several years ago and I must admit that I spend too many fall Saturdays watching TV. I am a student of American history and have read a great deal about that period. I lived in Israel for 15 months many years ago and have returned four times, most recently last year while visiting my son who was studying at the University of Haifa. I am very attached to my iPod and enjoy listening to Country (two years of living in Austin will do that), Classical, Folk, Classic Rock, Gipsy Kings and contemporary Israeli music. I enjoy going to art galleries and concerts. I have a strong intellectual curiosity and my interests range from performing and visual arts to art and history museums. Looking for someone who is fun, funny (not the same), outgoing, considerate and kind.
