Ah, to write an original profile: there's the rub!!
I have rediscovered my lust for life and want to share it. I'm spirited, and spiritual, always, and passionate, always, and though I, like you (probably) have been through major challenges, I remain an optimist. I can walk for miles, and I dance on the elliptical machine to Honky Tonk Woman and Bach's Musical offering alternately, but I'm not a golfer or skiier or skateboarder or skydiver..yet. I no longer see golf as anathema to my being an old leftie and would like to learn. I practice yoga regularly. I'm loyal and deep, and funny, and I laugh at myself easily when I cant find where I parked the car, and I smile often, just for the exercise. I'm a mental health professional, but only while working...and I won't be deconstructing you or your past relationships. I've raised (a work in progress) great 20 and 23 year old daughters, both of whom are doing well. They give me great pleasure, but I'm open to loving another adult as deeply as I love them. I'm a romantic, always have been, and I'm glad. I love (mostly independent) theatre, movies and live music, and ethnic restaurants, and want to cook fun meals with ingredients I haven't tried yet (not many). I'm not pedantic, far from obsessive, and can be gluten free/semi vegan in October and devour a porterhouse in November. Not flaky, just flexible. I appreciate my health and fitness, and I look forward to long long long talks, on long, long, walks. I appreciate my blessings, including the fact that I wake up to the trees outside my window rather than a brick wall. It's the simple things, really. I look forward to looking forward to someone.
Very, very separated, soon to be divorced.
I am "culturally jewish but not practicing". I love being culturally jewish. And I love being Italian, too.
Hopakis was my childhood name for ice cream.
I'm ambivalent about Woody ALlen.
Feel bad about AMy Winehouse.
Just some random thoughts.
