The one thing I am passionate about...
Loving and inspiring others in a deep yet 'tough love' kind of way, the beautiful connection to my 23 and 22 year old daughters, who don't live nearby, daily spiritual evolution, and on some more corporeal notes :), great food of many kinds, simple travel and excursions, movies, friends.........
I typically spend my leisure time
Eating out, movies, meeting with close friends and just meandering around Laguna or anywhere else local or away for a weekend, and of course movies in or out. A baseball game here and there and watching the Yanks when it's convenient (it's a birthright! :). Hiking, beach, exploring, etc...Am open too to whatever we might enjoy together really.
The most influential person in my life has been
The more I evolve, the clearer this answer becomes. I'm holding out for a woman who also won't settle. A lady who has lived and learned enough to know what a genuine, wonderful connection with a partner is, and who fully embraces the idea of needing such a bond in her life. She will empathize reflexively, understand and wish to join me in continuing to send the George Bailey ripple out into the world, one smile at a time :). Oh, and lastly, a love of Sinatra or a willingness to develop one :)
The first thing people notice about me
