I am a warm, intelligent, self reflective man who wishes to share his life with a companion through life after having completed many of my own professional aspirations.
I am living in Vermont, and, as much as I enjoy the rural and beautiful area in which I live and practice, I am still very connected to the wealth of experiences the city has to offer. I have a very strong avocation in music that goes back to my youth. I went to a liberal arts college that also had a conservatory (Oberlin), and, to this day, I've maintained a very strong interest in music and in playing music. I enjoy listening to music with others, and I very much enjoy playing music with others. The types of music I play are folk music (of all generations), and Brazilian samba music (bossa nova), but I listen to all sorts of music
I like being involved in my synagogue. I have done Israeli Dancing there, for many years, and I like being a member of the community. I am currently sitting in on the religious committee. Although I am very involved, being Jewish for me is much more about how you treat yourself and others than it is about keeping strictly to specific rituals although I am very well acquainted with them. I also play music in another synagogue in town once a month along with 3 other guitarists to do a folk service. It is a wonderful experience of celebrating the Sabbath and also being able to enjoy with one another the playing between us. The other players have become good friends.
I am also a movie buff. I am a member of a group that meets in Burlington on Sunday mornings (about 14 times a year), and sees films that have yet to be released and discusses them. It is a very nice mix of people. I grew up in New York, so I was exposed to a lot of theatre of all sorts as well as music. I go down to New York several times a year simply to go to the theatre (which I very much enjoy).
In recent years, I have felt the need to balance this out with more of a focus on my physical self. I am at the gym doing either aerobic exercise 4 days a week, or working out two days a week. I am not obsessive about it, but I have found it to be very important as a balance to my other interests, and particularly, a balance to my work life as a psychotherapist. I also have a canoe and I like to go cycling as well. There are many interesting bike paths in the area that I go to during the warmer months.
I will add more over time or as I get to know the person I am getting to know.
