My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"It's senseless, at least in the absence of divine agency, to declare that any two people were made for each other, yet we say it all the time, to sustain our belief that's it's sensible for them to pair up. The conceit can turn the search for someone into a search for that someone which is fated to end in futility or compromise whether conducted on the Internet or in a ballroom. And yet people find each other, every which way, and often achieve something they call happiness." Nick Paumgarten, the New Yorker, July 4/2011

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Like everyone over the age of 12, I worry about what I should have done differently.

On Sundays the bulls get so bored,
When they are asked to show off for us
There is the sun, the sand, and the arena
There are the bulls ready to bleed for us
The moment of triumph when grocery clerks become Nero
The moment of triumph when the girls scream and shout the name of their hero.

Jacques Brel
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Cooking and engaging in entertaining and inconsequential conversation.
