Meet a discerningly interesting, open-minded, and creative; consultant, FEMA disaster mitigation advisor, and designer, who is an intimately involved, non-meddling, parent of two independent adult sons and "custodial” son for his dad until his recent death at 102. Who is affectionately nurturing, extremely patient, empathetic, gregarious, tolerant, caring and humanistic: politically active (against war and capital punishment). Humorous, some times ironic and silly, though emotionally mature. Full of positive energy and feelings. I am extremely ethical, trustworthy, sincere and honest with a great deal of integrity. People tend to share their feeling with me and to confide in me as a dependable person whom they can and do rely on, to listen to and understand them while keeping their “secrets” . I am not only a “good weather” friend but also a dependable friend in” bad weather”. A great guy; to have around the house: especially in the kitchen, the workshop, and the boudoirs and, in an emergency!. I love to: live; to love and to make love; to dance ( especially ballroom ), swim, and to travel ( I have lived, worked and or traveled in: Africa, Europe, the Middle East, central and north America , the Caribbean and the north and south pacific); to cook; and especially, to be with my family.Though I am very curious and interested (about life and relationships) and believe that I have some of the answers, there always seem to be more questions and many enigmas. I do not need to be” picked up after”; I return phone calls in a timely manner; and I, put down, the toilet seat.As a person that greatly values the truth I am willing to make sacrifices to uphold it. While I may appreciate the “bells and whistles”, of the good life I neither need nor value these material objects for my sense of contentment or success. Having said I a lot, I am a, we kind of guy.If you thought, “YESSS!” then I look forward to “hearing” from you.
