Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am not an easy person to describe in simple terms. There is a
quote that I identify with in terms of describing myself:
"A riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma." - Winston
Churchill: describing Russia in 1939
For many years of my life, I struggled to happily fit in one box or
another. It was only with the "wisdom of 30" that I realized I just
don't fit in one box.
I am sweet and I am evil.
I am warm and I am cold.
I am friendly and I am aloof.
I am outgoing and I am shy.
I am loud and I am quiet.
I am happy and I am sad.
I am a teacher and I am a learner.
I am simple and I am complex.
If you are meeting me for the first time, you may only see one side
of me. Only after you get to know me will you see both sides.

I have spent so much time reading as part of my education, that I
look to pleasure reading as a form of escape. I like a lot of
different types of books, but can't say I have any true
My preference for movies is a lot like books. I like a good escape
that occupies my mind. I often judge a movie by the shift factor:
how much do I notice I am shifting in my seat. If I don't notice my
shifting, it's an engaging movie. That said, I do have a few
favorite curl up on the couch and escape movies. These are: The
Princess Bride, Labyrinth, Ladyhawke, and
My taste in music is rather eclectic. My first favorite song, that
I remember from childhood, was Lucy in the Sky with
Diamonds. What I deem my favorite now depends on my mood and
how far into my music library I've delved recently. I do remember
when "Video Killed the Radio Star" and still find guilty
pleasure in '80s music. I also have a soft spot for late 1960s
rock. I do prefer blues and swing over true jazz, and I'm really
not a big fan of country.
If I had the ability to make the perfect dinner from my favorite
foods it would start with Hall of Fame Garlic Bread from Max's
Tavern, and the entree would be fried scallops with cocktail sauce
from Summer Shack. I'm not sure I have a true favorite dessert -
they're all yummy. That said, I do tend to fall into the picky
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I believe that people are resilient and can actually do quite well
without many of the "needs" we are accustomed to in modern life.
That being said, I wouldn't want to do without the following:
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything. Honest, my brain rarely shuts off.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It depends ... Lately, it's been crashing early.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

That all depends on the situation and how well I know you. The
better I know you, the more I'm willing to share.
