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. If given my druthers, I'll choose adventure over tranquility (unfurl the sails!), but now relaxation has a valued place in my life. Everything for me is better with people I love. It's especially fun to exchange ideas, appreciate architecture, music, theater, to play with animals, agonize over politics, and to sing and dance with abandon....

I've dodged twisters in Oklahoma, pursued acting in California, conducted brain mapping research in North Carolina, and I resigned a tenured professorship for love (and I'd do it again). My field is in the integration of neurology, psychology and language. I've taught in each of these areas; most recently, I taught neurology to 2nd year medical students for 12 years in Boston. Relationships with students have always filled my heart and 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. 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. She and my stepfather of 35 years have the kind of romance you read about in novels. My sister is my best friend and her husband is like a brother to me. My son, my little boy, has grown up... once a young scholar, a varsity athlete at Phillips Exeter. then a man who, because of his kind heart, became an RN and now works at Mass General Hospital. I love my family and I know how lucky I am.

Here, I'm returning to my roots as an aspiring actress and singer, and I'm dabbling in art. I volunteer for the Red Cross as a member of the Disaster Relief Team, helping people get food and lodging after a fire. I'm also taking classes to train for deployment in case of a disaster in another state, such as a flood or a large fire. (Tornado?)

This would be a good time to meet you.. you, with your liberal politics. Witty, steady, delighting in both people and animals. We'll enjoy doing whatever. Doing dishes, the dinner party over and everyone gone. The two of us, laughing at what people said... Just being together.
I’m really good at

By far, my favorite places to be are on or in any ocean. Sailing, canoeing, kayaking, sitting on the pier. I enjoy walking on the beach but I wade in with skirt drenched, shoes thrown and, with any luck, my purse is with my shoes. (Now where are those keys..)

Some favorites all in one breath: All Pinker books, Ella Fitzgerald, NPR, spicy saag paneer, Blade Runner, Seinfeld, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Godfather, black olives, Nina Simone, Yo Yo Ma, Pink Floyd, The Moth, Lord of the Rings, BSO, MFA, all theater, Alvin Ailey, Aliens, A Prayer for Owen Meany, Jon Stewart, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Faust, A Little Night Music, The King and I, West Side Story, Joni Mitchell, buttery chardonnay, and hot coffee in the morning.
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
~ Spontaneous humor, 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.
why people do what they do and say what they say.
