My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I must be a mermaid. I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living. ~Anais Nin

I'm playful, loving, creative, and I have a quick wit. Pathologically optimistic. Some tell me that I see the world through rose-colored glasses; I have yet to take that as anything but a compliment... :) If I have my druthers, I'll choose adventure over tranquility but I'm flexible in my activities and happy in most situations.

I'm fortunate to have lived a variety of lives without reincarnation. :) I've dodged twisters in Oklahoma, pursued acting in California, conducted brain mapping research in North Carolina, and resigned tenure for love. For some years in New England, I've taught neurology to medical students and psychology to undergrads. My relationships with students have colored my life.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm stepping back from academia to use my time differently. Now I fly to Oklahoma more often to see my family, liberals living among conservatives. My mom has always been my gentle role model; somehow I'm surprised that age can fell her. I'm lucky that my son and daughter-in-law live in JP, only a short drive from me. My family is loving, witty and supportive. I've brain-washed them into thinking I'm so smart, so this, so that... please don't tell them otherwise!

I'm returning to my roots in the arts. ! I've given away most of my psychology and neurology textbooks and I'm turning my study into an art studio. I'm taking voice lessons again and I plan to stake-out theaters as possible venues to audition. I'm excited by these changes. It could be a good time to meet you!

By far, my favorite places to be are on or in any ocean. Sailing, canoeing, kayaking, eating a sandwich on the pier. Like everyone on this site, I enjoy walking on the beach. I wade in with skirt drenched, shoes thrown and, with any luck, my purse is with my shoes...

Other favorites all in one breath: How the Mind Works, Annie Hall, Yo Yo Ma, Blade Runner, God Delusion, saag paneer, NPR, Nina Simone, The Language Instinct, string quartets, Mystic River, Itzhak Perlman, Aliens, Lord of the Rings Trilogy, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, almost all theater, A Prayer for Owen Meany, Winnie the Pooh, Jon Stewart, drunken noodes, Lolita, A Little Night Music, buttery chardonnay, Faust, Diana Krall, To Kill a Mockingbird, West Side Story, Joni Mitchell, and I love to move to music.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
~ Passion for life and ideas, not things
~ Love and support from family and friends
~ Spontaneous humor and laughter
~ Empathy and kindness
~ Logic and understanding
~ Optimism and resilience
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
