I'm a free thinking, original and inventive visual artist. Confident, self-assured sensitive, emotionally self-aware, communicative, caring, compassionate, intuitive. Tall, trim 6ft, 195lbs, athletic. I keep fit, eat well and have tons of energy as a result. I'm funny and serious, sophisticated and simple, easy going and intense. Highly focused but will always stop to smell the flowers. Open to other points of view yet hold strong convictions. An urban dweller with a deep love of nature. I can converse in several languages but tend to speak less and listen more. Highly literate and articulate. I love books and am an avid reader. I love misty sea coasts and hot desert sun. I love to walk in the rain and laze on the beach. I love the crunch and sparkle of snow in the woods and musty odour of the earth at spring thaw. I am a sensualist with an intellectual bent. Physically strong and emotionally gentle. I am very active and lazy like a bag of bones. I grew up in what might now be called a modern orthodox family and still love to celebrate Jewish holidays but otherwise I am largely secular. I am an ardent Zionist and lover of Israel and eventual aliya is a distinct possibility. I raised my daughter as a single father and she is now out of the nest and currently an independent, successful university student in Israel.
