i've got to believe! or, i wouldn't be here. i love to travel ( have been to south america last year, and have been to many cities and spots in the united states) and think of myself as adventuresome. actually, i just got back from Belgium and loved it ( tried maybe 45 beers in belgium of the 450 made there. oh well, there's always next time. ) another update. I just got back from Kauai and thought it truly was paradise. and, that was camping on $3.00 per day. who would have thought? I really never needed those 5-star hotels after all. love trying new things and participate in a variety of sports. the most significant sport i have been involved in in the last year is aikido, a non-violent japanese martial art. it has given me an increased purpose in my life and has helped me direct my life in a more peaceful way. besides being in touch with my jewish roots, i like to explore ideas of other religions, and i consider myself to be a spiritual person; although, i am most interested in buddhism and its compassionate ideas and practices. Looking for a woman with a positive attitude. I try to make the most of every situation i'm presented with (ie., optimistic), and i look for that in my partner as well. BTW, the last pic is of me, with a shaved head, taking a day hike 6 miles down in the Grand Canyon at Plateau Point. i have also discovered the fabulousness of Rumi's poetry lately.
