80, Belmont, CA"The world is alive with the grandeur of God" (-Hopkins). The love and humor of God and the incarnation of Christ are vibrantly evident in everything, including my sons' busy lives, ages 19 & 22, my late wife's very best achievements. Lost her to ovarian cancer. Being Mom and Dad is more challenging than I expected. A convert, I'm a Permanent Deacon - one of the Church's three orders of clergy - with the equivalent of a master's degree in pastoral theology to go with my B.A. and an "almost M.A." (lacking only a thesis) in English/Language Arts/Journalism/Creative Writing/American Literature. (I have permission to be here. See Circular Letter Prot. N. 263/97 from the â€œCongregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacramentsâ€ in the Curia of the Vatican.) Am involved in exciting Church ministries. A reformed mountain climber, I hold FAA licenses for sailplanes and single-engine airplanes. Ever witness a cloud being born around you or climbed skyward like a homesick angel? Those hobbies disappeared along with season tickets to the symphony and theater as my sons became more expensive, but they are well worth it. For my secular career, Iâ€™m self-employed as a marketing and public relations consultant for emerging hi-tech enterprises in Silicon Valley. Wanted to write the "great American novel," but am now relegated to the great American press release. Humor, optimism, meditation, spirituality, independence, a simpatico companion, expansive mountainous vistas, ocean sunsets and good California wine are important. Healthy physically and emotionally, trustworthy, honest, sincere, mischievous, sometimes annoying but definitely not into games, nor do I believe in controlling people. Can't dance (2 left feet), can't sing (can't carry a tune in a bucket), but I have all my hair (in a box under the bed). I wish you peace, fulfillment and the discovery of all you're searching for.
65, San Francisco, CAI have found that happiness is within ourselves. From there, our happiness will carry over to all facets of our lives, including personal relationships and business relationships. We should value the gift of life and joy in our daily lives. As such, we should not be overly concerned about relative life, such as ideology, material expectations, and other peoples idea of success. Success is happiness within. We should realize that the Creator provides for everything even though it may be hidden from human eyes.

Like to take day trips to California Missions Like Carmel, San Antonio especially when its fiesta time. I work hard have a strong work ethic, in part to what I learned from my Dad. I had a second job working for a shuttle and charter bus company ever since my divorce in going on eight years now, I no longer work that s3xond job as one of the changes in my life , after all I've gone through since 2014. I try to treat people, as I would like to be treated, the respect for whom people are rather than what they are. I'm catholic but have been more a spiritual believer and believe in the power of prayer. My daughters say that my theme song would be a Michael Buble song " haven't met you yet". I thank God for every morning that I wake and thank Him at the end of my day.

62, Menlo Park, CAIn the end what facinates me more than anything is philosophy. I have put a lot of time and money into my training as a philosopher so that I could teach in a Catholic university with the freedom that the Church gives us I have a little Down syndrome son who of all the people in the world is my greatest joy. His name is Christian and he is well known at the seminary. He likes playing the guitar with his brothers reading good books and eating cheeseburgers. He keeps my feet on the ground and models an unconditional love for everybody he meets. A model which I should follow. We spend a lot of time together. But there remains ample room for one more: a catholic woman who would be loved deeply by both of us. and who I plan to cherish. My Catholic faith is vey important to me. It guides every intention of my heart as well as the ideas of my mind. "The heart has reasons that the reason knows not of." (Pascal) I will stay in the Bay Area where my family has lived for six generations and where I have been a professor for 20 years. I will continue to teach and write at the seminary. And I would like to meet someone who could journey with me in this kind of life. And not just journey together on a dusty path of routine and boredom, but to love each other wildly and to express that love demonstrably, and to "be there" for each other when we face challenges. In other words, I need a God-sent, genuine woman.
