Who am I? I'm strong, warm, and gentle. I work...

In his own words

Who am I? I'm strong, warm, and gentle. I work hard, try to enjoy life and would like a female complement. My life is quiet and I try to be productive. If you'd rather read a book than watch TV, and prefer movies on the big screen instead of the tube, better. Most of the ones I see are at the Laemmles. Pictures I've enjoyed recently: Eric Rohmer's A SUMMER'S TALE and John Turturro's FADING GIGOLO. and KILL THE MESSENGER. And I loved ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK on DVD. Was employed for 31 years, mostly in child protective services. Now I work on things which matter to me, like fitness, improving my Spanish and normalizing US-Cuba relations. My father and his parents lived in Cuba during World War II. Born (and conceived) in the U.S., I have long been involved with Cuba. I spent November 2013 to February 2014 there. Match is very positive-oriented. It doesn't ask for our DISlikes, but I have a few: racism, sexism, homophobia and petty bickering. Also, movies with lots of violence and driving in LA lately. Politically, I'm a leftist. So if you think NPR and the NY TIMES are fair, balanced and objective news sources, we're not likely to get along. I'm glad, however, that the NYT just came out for normalizing relations and ending the US blockade of Cuba, and it seems that some in Washington, including the President, were listening. At times I can be too serious, but I can, and do, laugh at my own foibles. Well, some of them... Let me be direct: I really LIKE women. Most of my friends are female. So if you say you want to be treated like a lady, will you alight from a carriage when we meet? To me, the one who opens the door should be the one who gets to it first, especially if the other one is carrying groceries. I'm happy to drive, but it's OK if you drive. I often open doors for others. The most important quality in a restaurant isn't the FOOD, but the QUIET, so we can hear each other. I can and do cook, having started at 6, living with my dad, a single father. For fitness, I take walks and practice yoga at home. If you live in L.A., we could talk, meet, and then, who knows? I live in Silverlake and like to walk around the reservoir. Sometimes I walk to the market and carry the bags home. Not to save money (My '98 Accord, bought new, has barely 100,000 on it), but to get away from the phone and computer. Every day I'm highly conscious of and deeply grateful for the many good things in my life. Some came by accident, others by my efforts. One nice thing about retirement: when I feel like doing nothing, I can do that. Or just lay around in bed and read a book, or listen to a recorded book. Isabel Allende and Simon Winchester are favorites. It would be great to meet someone in LA with her own projects and passions, with whom to share some interests, activities and time together. I don't think there's one soul-mate somewhere and, if only I could find her, everything would be OK. My idea is more like two people with not-incompatible values, exploring and building a friendship, and over time, something deeper, together. It can't happen in a day. Some Match profiles seem a bit like job applications, but with a certain perfectionism and ambivalence. My second and third photos were taken this year, 2014. The first picture, taken last week, is one I really like. From time to time I like to update this profile. If any of this resonates, please be in touch. I will respond. If not, good luck to you. In Spanish it is said: No es fácil. Pero, mejor estar solo que mal acompañado. ("It isn't easy. But it's better to be by yourself than in bad company.") ----------- p.s., the child I mention isn't mine by blood. When I met his mom, he was 5. When she and I separated, he and I didn't, with her enthusiastic support. He's now 43. His mom and I are friends, a modern family. Last fall I drove up to the Bay Area for his wedding. Updated December 23, 2014.

Very Liberal

Favorite hot spots

This year I've begun to get a weekly full body massage. There's a big Armenian market in Glendale that I enjoy shopping at. It somehow transports me to the Middle East, but without the bombs going off.

College

Favorite things

FAVORITES: Friendship, honesty, reliability. UNFAVORITES: racism, sexism, homophobia, petty bickering and gratuitous violence. Driving in LA is a nuisance I try to avoid when possible, though I drive a nice 1998 Honda accord.

For fun

Reading, movies, hanging out. Love the Laemmles, mostly in Pasadena. Sometimes literally doing nothing, reading, or just thinking. Recorded books: they're like going to the movies with your eyes closed (well, if you're not driving...)

Last read

THE MAN WHO LOVED CHINA. by Simon Winchester's ISLAND BENEATH THE SEA by Isabel Allende ESLANDA: Life of Mrs. Paul Robeson by Barbara Ransby (2013) Hayden Herrera's bio of Frida Kahlo

Background / Values
Ethnicity: Other Latino / Hispanic, Other
Since I'm neither Cuban nor Cuban-American, it makes more sense to say that I'm an American-Cuban. Would like a native Spanish-speaker, but if the other things work out to our mutual satisfaction, that's not decisive.
Faith: Atheist Atheist
My attitude toward religion: I'm an atheist and, God willing, I always will be... I'm not militant about my atheism, either. If you believe in God, I won't argue with you over it. What would be the point? You should be a good person, OK?

BA in US history, University of Wisconsin, 1967. My main interest in school, as it turned out, was in political activism. I used to think I had all the answers. Now I know I don't even have all the questions. I'm still learning in 2014. Are you?
