I do not typically respond without a picture. It is only fair as I have posted one. Deeply-spiritual man, very loyal, loving and affectionate, seeking woman to whom to devote himself, second only to the Lord. For the most part easy to look at. After a long, very active, highly athletic life, I have just recently(11-18-08)undergone a successful lower back surgery through the Vets Admin. after a 3 year wait in pain and disabled. This situation arose from several significant injuries, all of them acquired saving lives (parachuting with a jump-capable medical rescue service, having been previously trained as battlefield paramedic). I have been alone (by choice mostly) since 2001, though I write, and have several intellectual interests (writer of suspense fiction w/1 novel agent-ready and another half-done) studies in new field of neuroplasticity, etc) aside from my faith, plus playing guitar, love dancing, etc. ) I would like a lovely lady to devote my life to (second only to the Lord, my first love, of course) henceforward. I am not a paying member at this time, but may be soon. If you can, send and e-mail with your e-mail address.
