I am a "recovering attorney" (retired), enjoying a second (or perhaps, first real) childhood of trying to enjoy each day as it comes. I want to explore the rest of the 50 states (just 6 left), many more foreign countries, art galleries, museums, beautiful places to hike, and exciting cities. I want to read more books. I am fortunate to have the time, resources, energy, enthusiasm and good health to do all these things. I would be happier doing them with a woman who appreciates many of the same things and whom I will regard and treat as my equal (at the very least).
I think that I am happiest when I am creating something, whether it’s designing and building custom furniture in my woodworking shop, doing photography or writing. (I think that I may have a book or two in me trying to get out.) I enjoy taking care of my practically-in-town house in the woods, surrounded by deer and other wildlife.
I know that life isn’t all fun and games. I am very interested in political and social causes and do my best to try to make a difference where I can. I am most definitely a liberal (at least).
I have a small family, but a big family of wonderful friends. I love to be with people who like discussing ideas, just because it’s fun and interesting, even if there is no particular task at hand.
I try not to skip more than a day or two of physical activity, tennis topping the list, followed by hiking, skiing, yoga and kayaking.
What do I look for in a woman? Intelligence, energy, empathy, physical attraction, creativity, affection and openness. I am comfortable sharing my feelings with her, to see and be seen, and seek the same from her.
