The story begins in the town of Vietbsk, Russia circa where Morris Lerman , the amusing traveling entertainer, is taken captive by the spirit of Gvita Kisskin in the shetetl produce mart. Away they go for homentashen and Black Sea tea. Months later Morris and Gvita elope to the eastside of Vietbsk, break bread, and conceive nine little Lermans. Two generations later I appear with the energy, spirit, laughing, and loving nature of my great grandparents.I am blessed to have my extended Lerman family and good friends near by as a important part of life. I take care of business(financially secure) but make sure there is free time to play in the great outdoors (hike,golf,sail,swim ,kayake,etc),experie nce cultural pursuits(film,theatr e,museums), attend sporting events with my nephews, and excursion to nice landscapes( Lake Tahoe, summer and winter).I believe in giving of yourself(volunteerin g in Jewish and local community).I eat right, keep fit, take a practical approach to life, and appreciate good health. I have worked at youth camps, sold retail, taught landscape classes, coordinated sports leagues,tutored kids, ran drug diversion sessions, owned a business, and much more . At work I coordinate on site public works projects for the City of San Jose. Family and friends comment that I am smart, compassionate, friendly, and a good companion. I spread passion into work, play, family, and significant other relationships.On the romantic side I like to flow with the mood and spirit of a lady. I can create a nice dinner for two by the fire with pleasant music and endearing conversation;dinner and dance into the night; or take horses down a dusty trail to Fallen Leaf Lake. After many years of diligent work it is time to see Peru, Brazil, Galapagos Islands, Europe, Russia, and other destinations.
