In the last several years, I've had to re-think if life is essentially a material or spiritual pursuit: I've come to feel inside it's almost entirely spiritual-- and that insight turned around my life for the better. I've lived a great life. I've had a lot of what material society would call success, and after some personal tragedies now I have much less but for the first time I have enough. I live in the bright light of recovery. I do the things I enjoy doing every day, I spend time helping people in ways I can be of service, and I want for nothing. I'm in early retirement, I've changed careers from lawyer to writer and wish I had done this years ago. This has truly become the happiest time of my life as it sits on the shoulders of all that I've learned, some of it joyous, some of it painful. I'm at that time of my life where I am very much within my Self leading a quiet life, and perhaps because it has been so fulfilling I still would love to have someone to share it.
I've been told I'm a very good and empathetic listener. I consider myself an unusually open man regarding feelings, but I try more to understand than to solve all your problems. I love listening to a woman's thoughts and feelings, read things together, listen to each other's music, explore each other's head, respect each other's space. (Mars and Venus in the same house in my Vedic chart). Music is my art form, and my range of musical loves is all over the place. I play the guitar and a few other stringed instruments. "The purpose of life is finding purpose in life". I'm looking to share that path with someone.
INTERESTS: Being a happy homebody, playing guitar, writing, open minded, recovery, low-carb, eastern and western philosophy, all Cleveland sports teams, Browns being my way to atone for past karmic deeds. (BTW, sorry for all the Browns photos, I recently took them--August 2018-- and posted them because in somewhat typical guy fashion I don't have a lot of pictures of myself.)
