The one thing I am passionate about...
The earth, and the beauty of it. I often stop while driving just to look at things, the sky before a storm, turning leaves. I have favorite places I keep track of through the seasons. I am mindful of my impact personally and the collective impact of our species. I am not a tree hugger, I just care a bit more than the average consumer. Litter and waste pisses me off.
I typically spend my leisure time
Playing guitar, listening to jazz guitar. Walking on the beach after the blanket crowd has left. Hiking, meditating. A ravenous reader. Teaching and talking to my kids. Sharing and cuddling by the fireplace.
The most influential person in my life has been
The ability to tell the truth. To have an opinion of their own but not to shut out others. Self sufficiency, yet supportive. Existing in complementary ways that allow for each others personal growth. Good kisser, likes to cuddle. Likes to share and learn and be taught.
The first thing people notice about me
I generally take it all in before I say too much. I like to joke, I am comfortable in my own skin.
The last book I read and enjoyed
"The Wild Within" by Paul Rezendes. A deeply spiritual book about how we view the natural world and our connection to it. Wether in the deep woods or Central Park, we are animals too. We mark our territory, speak without words, love our mates and offspring. There is a certain intellengence that guides us our whole lives.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- health and youthfulness
- each day I stand and breath on my own
- wonderful kids
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Just because I am a male doesn't mean I know how the Yankees did last game, I have no plans for the Superbowl. I am more spiritual than material. I don't have a list of goods and services that I NEED to get.
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I like a certain amount of solitude each day. It keeps me gounded, recharged. I respect others need for that too. I can be a hardhead at times and a pushover too. I am a giver, and I have a good intuition about being taken. I can withdraw and become defensive. I am devoted and trustworthy once I give my heart, and I expect that too. Without blowing my own horn, I'd say I was a good lover. Whew! Don't need Viagra.
