ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

I am a courageous, adventurous retired late fifties Jeffersonian who was into fly fishing and home wine making in a previous life. Do you love the outdoors and hiking but can also dress up for the theater? Can you rub elbows in the kitchen with an avid pseudo-gourmet chef whose passion is searing Chilean Sea Bass in butter and white wine and grilling ribeye steaks lathered in rosemary infused olive oil on the barbee? Do you share an obsession for Bistecca Fiorentina? How about helping me clean up the mess I've created preparing our gourmet repast? I am a complex, intense, passionate man but I also have an incredible sense of humor and the ability to laugh at myself.
I value, respect, and appreciate the richness and flow of Life in all its aspects even the seemingly mundane (I enjoy doing dishes, laundry, grocery shopping.) After flying the Pacific for 25 years as a pilot for Northwest Airlines I retired in 2009. In 2011, I was diagnosed with CMML, a rare blood cancer, which rapidly progressed into Acute Myeloid Leukemia. Leukemia was God's greatest gift for it opened my eyes and my Soul for the first time to everything: relationships with family and friends, nature, our Creator, Life and Death, my gifts, and my purpose. After 3 months of chemotherapy I had a bone marrow transplant in March, 2012, at the City of Hope near Pasadena, CA. God's second greatest gift to me was Qi Gong, an ancient Chinese healing art. Practicing and cultivating the healing power of Qi Gong gave me the energy, inspiration, and quietude of spirit to withstand the constant onslaught of toxic drugs and invasive procedures the doctors used to save my life. Western medicine is just beginning to embrace the time tested power of Eastern medicine in using the mind to heal the body. I am living testament to that truth. In June, 2013, I completed my certification in Lee Holden's (PBS TV fame) Qi Gong Instructor School in Santa Cruz, CA, and continue my healing journey, teaching this beautiful healing art at several area health clubs. If you like yoga you'll love Qi Gong!

*****IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to my illness I am immuno compromised and cannot be with anyone who has an STD. At the appropriate time testing is mandatory. I'm old fashioned and value intimacy with a partner: monogamy is a prerequisite. Also, I am "currently separated." The trial is over and I'm waiting for the judge in SoCal to sign the divorce paperwork. If EITHER is an issue I thank you for taking the time to read my profile and wish you blessings and good fortune as you go to the next profile.*******

I am a Taoist, tolerant of all faiths and believe our Creator loves and communicates with each of us individually through Intuition, nature, and our life force energy (Qi). A miracle, I live each day, each moment in thankfulness for everything - good and bad. Life can be gritty, dirty, filled with trials and lessons which test our character, determine our destiny - ethos anthropoi daimon. What did Leukemia teach me? When the mind is still the Universe surrenders.
My perfect date: a picnic hike on the Rubicon Trail, Lake Tahoe with a back pack filled with olives, cheese, prosciutto, a bottle of 2007 Barolo (great vintage), followed by long, passionate kisses on the Healing Rock overlooking the lake.
Do you hold sacred the commitment and integrity of a vow? Can you fathom the sanctity of nature, the timeless, shimmering beauty of an ocean sunset, the deep inner echo of a moonrise over Lake Tahoe? Are you an emotionally healthy like-minded woman? Can you love and be loved freely, with abandon in the deepest recesses of your Soul?

I've been coming to you on a hard road. The Barolo rests in the cellar awaiting our adventure. Is it you?
