In His Own Words

About him

Now starting a brand-new chapter. Having just retired as an educator and union negotiator, I’m spending my time writing music, volunteering, developing a podcast, singing in a chorus, and exploring new ways to get into trouble.

I care about enjoying life, especially the little things, while also wanting to help make the world more livable. I love to travel, locally and afar, attend concerts and museums, try new restaurants, walk neighborhoods, swim, and support political candidates.

So what do I have to offer? A pair of shoulders that are the very definition of 'being there for you"... a loyalty that is unshakeable...character in the guise of being a character ... a deep commitment to family, both inherited and acquired...and an outlook on life that is life-affirming even in the face of a few deep personal tragedies...(plus I can change light-bulbs, solve the Friday Times puzzle, memorize voluminous bits of useless trivia, and, most importantly, find all the missing socks). I’m a pretty good cook (better if I have someone to cook for). My one son is 23 and lives in New England, where he is both an entrepreneur and student.

The life of the mind is important to me, so I hope you’ve got strong opinions we can banter about. Talk to me about big ideas or about "nothing." Find me at the opera or the ballpark. Race me in the pool or share an exotic meal. I enjoy the journeys of life as much as the outcomes and hope to find someone to stroll, race, and dawdle with, mostly just walking alongside. Trained as a musician, I always have a melody in my head. I hope you adore classical music as I do; it plays an important part in my life emotionally, spiritually, and intellectually,

About his ideal match

Who are you? You’ve learned from life and are not afraid to reminisce about the past even as you plan for a full journey ahead (you are a real person, like the rest of us, with “baggage”—you don’t get to your 60s without some, but you have new luggage for the future). You like meandering through museums, sitting through shows, and bantering during baseball at Yankee Stadium (I’ll do Mets games also if it’s important to you). You are politically liberal and will celebrate with me when tRump is in jail; hopefully you’ll help me canvass during the next election. You are intrigued about Jewish traditions even if you consider yourself non-religious (I’m not kosher or shomer shabbos but like to celebrate holidays, periodically attend services, and learn about my religious and cultural heritage). You are pretty because you are the “girl next door” (I’m not looking for Vogue models); you care about fashion more than I do and have a sense of style, like dressing up and down depending on the occasion but are not a slave to the worst materialistic instincts.

Deal-breakers = You aren’t the age you say you are in your profile; you aren’t interested in classical music (OK if you don’t know much); you voted for Trump or George W. Bush; you are at either extreme of religiosity (frum or apathetic about-hostile to Jewish traditions); you are a climate-denier or anti-vaxxer; you are more interested in the car I drive than the books on my shelves.
