I am a woman of a rich soul. On one hand I am well educated, sophisticated, artistic, evolved and spiritual. At the same time I am very down to earth, warm, compassionate and sensual. I enjoy man's energy, companionship and scent..
My life have been interesting and at times adventurous. Five years ago I went to Alaska for a year training with Providence hospital to become a hospital chaplain. It was an amazing experience. My life is marked by service and helping people in adversity. I am also involved with local art groups and charities.
I have been a widow for 14 years and raised a beautiful son who is a PhD student at the University of London.
I would like to meet a man who is evolved, spiritual, wise, generous and loving. Couple hood in Judaism has a very important meaning contrary to the Western view of self realization. In Judaism it is only through partnership between two people that you grow and live deeper spiritual life. I constantly learn Judaism and other religions and grow mentally and spiritually. I would like to meet a man who wants to learn and grow as well emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
This is the best time of my life.. I am semi retired and am doing very interesting things.. it will be awesome to find a partner to live this rich time of our lives.. I am mindful that I live now in an area that is not very Jewish. I am willing to look at this situation creatively as far as relocating or perhaps someone will fall in love with beautiful Portland Oregon the way that I did.. To me there is something called Jewish soul, and i still hopeful to find it some day..
In my observation and experience the following statement hold truth for me and perhaps for others:
"It is wrong to think that love comes from long companionship and persevering courtship. Love is the offspring of spiritual affinity and unless that affinity is created in a moment, it will not be created in years or even generations." Gibran
My late father who remarried after my mother passed on told me that finding love in later years is like finding a miracle. it is rare..i would like to pray and think that it will happen in my life too..
I must admit that jdate had not been blissful for me. let go and let God...
