I am a kind and romantic soul. I play the piano to relax and my friends think I have a wicked good sense of humor . . .they must be right because they seem to know everything. I love the outdoors, quiet nights at home and the restaurants here at the shore. I'm confident, respectful, well educated and even housebroken! (my dog insisted upon it, she is a British lab, very proper). I practice law for a living but that does not define me and I don't take myself too seriously. I am not materialistic or judgmental. I don't care if you are a maid or a doctor, rich or poor, I'm looking for a loyal, nurturing and honest partner in life who wants to laugh, enjoy good conversation and would like to build a lasting relationship. I found this poem on someone's profile and it struck me as something that all those seeking a mate should read at least once while on the journey. It's called "The Invitation" It doesn't interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing. It doesn't interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love for your dream for the adventure of being alive. It doesn't interest me what planets are squaring your moon... I want to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow if you have been opened by life's betrayals or have become shriveled and closed from fear of further pain. I want to know if you can sit with pain mine or your own without moving to hide it or fade it or fix it. I want to know if you can be with joy mine or your own if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful to be realistic to remember the limitations of being human. It doesn't interest me if the story you are telling me is true. I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself. If you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul. If you can be faithless and therefore trustworthy. I want to know if you can see Beauty even when it is not pretty every day. And if you can source your own life from its presence. I want to know if you can live with failure yours and mine and still stand at the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, "Yes." It doesn't interest me to know where you live or how much money you have. I want to know if you can get up after the night of grief and despair weary and bruised to the bone and do what needs to be done to feed the children. It doesn't interest me who you know or how you came to be here. I want to know if you will stand in the center of the fire with me and not shrink back. It doesn't interest me where or what or with whom you have studied. I want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away. I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments. and now on a lighter note: PUT THIS ON YOUR PROFILE IF YOU HAVE EVER WALKED INTO A SCREEN DOOR! l----*-*------l l--*-*-*-*---l l---\---/-------l l----\0/-------l l----(.)--------l l----/ \--------l l---/---\-------l l---------------l

I'm a fairly independent guy, creative, strong social conscience, sardonic humor, complex thinker, with wide ranging interests in mythology, preservation of indigenous cultures, sacred ceremony and art, Green Party politics and values, and health care for all. Looking for comfortable relationship, easygoing and complex conversations with ability to differ amiably and learn from each other. Am a certified massage therapist, so that's nice to share almost anytime. I love Argentine tango, teach it occasionally on an informal basis. The magic of a good tango can reverberate for days! I'm not looking for anyone to "be my other half" or do things for me, but rather another mostly whole person. Am an excellent cook, do my own housekeeping, laundry, chores, and problem solving. Grew up as a kid with my family living in Venezuela, Nicaragua, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico. Favorite places? Iguassu Falls, Ein Gedi, Borobudur, Tenochtitlan, Hezekiah's tunnel under Jerusalem, and Cerro Fitzroy (where I plan to visit someday). Worked on a kibbutz in Israel for a year, doing irrigation, harvesting, kitchen duty for 600, garbage man, laundry, welding and metal fabrication. I've had an interesting work history with the criminally insane in a maximum security treatment center; doing FBI prison research on convicted sex offenders and autoerotic asphyxia (I don't recommend it); also ran group home for boys, was a school-based therapist, and professional singer with Chanticleer, with lots of touring and CDs I'm proud of (Musikverein in Vienna; Lincoln Ctr, NYC, Sydney Opera House). Currently work in healthcare technology planning for large nonprofit provider. Interested in systems thinking, complexity theory, archetypal psychology, Edgar Rice Burroughs outer space sci fi, Moby Dick, Count of Monte Cristo, Buddhism (Tibetan), Middle East politics, the mounting crises of capitalism (and our apparent inability as a species to learn), neurophilosophy, fractals, strange attractors, toxic memes, critical theory (Frankfurt School). I do some volunteer international consulting on healthcare planning for remote, poor regions, esp. developing appropriate technology for rural maternal health services, bridging with midwives and traditional healers.
