Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm happy about being a grampa to two fun grandsons. My career
(semi-retired) was/is about water quality, as an environmental
engineer. I do a bit of consulting. After about 45 years on and off
in Massachusetts, I moved to New Mexico in 1999. The initial
attraction was landscapes and differentness, and I have stayed in
the West because of the diverse people I have met here. Moved to
the Boulder area about a month ago. I built a wooden boat that sits
in my son's driveway, wanting me to finish recaulking the seams so
I can get her out on local lakes. I read lots of novels, subscribe
to the New Yorker, am very curious about everything and ask lots of
questions, I hope not to the point of annoyance. I run and mountain
bike in the foothills and hike and cross-country ski. I like live
music. A few years ago when I had more land, I sold produce at a
farmer's market, cared for some goats, and fed apples from my tree
to the neighbor's horses. At my most recent house (I rent now), I

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Enjoying semi-retirement. I don't ever want to retire because I
think I have contributions yet to make. I get paid for some
consulting and I'm happy to do pro bono work for the right cause,
such as climate change. Also do some volunteer work.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening, woodworking, writing the occasional poem, trying new
things like playing Celtic fiddle which is not easy.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Exercise. Music. Poetry. Some sense of contact with the spiritual
realm. Snow. A woman who shares most of the same six (or more)
things. Not in that order.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Climate change. Worrying about anything else is like rearranging
the deck chairs on Titanic.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Reading and/or watching Bill Moyers
