First I have to say this, I'm not a Jew ethnically, but I have kept Shabbat and the High Holy Days since I was 16 years old when I began to study Torah and that's why I would prefer to be with a Jewish man. I just don't want to deal with Christian mainstream thought and practice, which seems to be the bulk of people out there. I love to study the history of the Jews and all of ancient Israel. I guess you could say that I'm a Jew inwardly.
I've dwelled in this lovely desert area almost all of my life. It's beauty has inspired me since childhood. As time passes enjoyment of life and relationships become more important. For me it's time for a quality relationship which includes friendship, laughter and a deep abiding love.
I'm an artist/designer and writer. As a gold and silversmith, stone cutter and oil painter, I've sold my work in area galleries for the past 26 years. I also do a little free lance writing for Lapidary Journal Jewelry Artist Magazine. I love rocks, crystals and minerals and the local desert scenery, especially sunrises and sunsets. I do my own photography and paint oil painting from my pics. Having lived in southern Arizona for over 50 years, I know the area well and have a deep love and appreciation for the Sonoran Desert and our mountain sky islands. I love walks in nature, scenic drives, taking pictures and trout fishing!
I grew up with an interest in geology, archeology, paleontology, cosmology and basically anything scientific or historic, especially ancient. I also enjoy gardening, cooking, movies, of course the history and science channels, an occasional road trip and the great outdoors. I swim and practice yoga regularly. My family has lived in Tucson for three generations. My children are grown and I have an adorable grandson.
I love insightful and fun conversation with respect for the sharing of ideas. I believe that having a sound relationship based upon shared or similar spiritual beliefs makes one a better and happier person. I'm more of a liberal thinker but I hate what political divisions have done to our country lately. So I'm taking a more silent, middle of the road approach these days in the hope that it will have a more calming effect on my mind and heart.
I'm looking for friendship first with the hope of growing toward a deeper bond with the right person. Sharing romantic dinners out or cooking something at home together while sipping wine and having good conversing is one of my favorite things to do. Any woman would want a caring, sensitive and sweet man who is thoughtful and respectful. That kind of man is easy to love. A man who is intelligent, funny and kind will be adored and much will be given in return to him in the way of cuddles, kisses, sweetness, respect and much more!
The best to all of you!
