I had a classical education, when such a thing was more the norm. But for all that, I haven't followed a "normal" path. I went to college when I was 21, started out majoring in pipe organ, and switched to linguistics, but in the end took more Art History courses than anything else. And what do you do with that? That's a very long story, and there's not enough space for it here.
Many years later, I have a varied and interesting life. Making music is very important to my sense of well-being. I love singing in groups and playing piano, solo and with friends. I have two piano students, one sixty-something and one five. It's really fun to guide someone in learning a skill.
I also do some healing work and have a half-time job in a finance office. And I do some babysitting. When I realized I wasn't going to have children of my own, I found babies to hang out with. They're so much fun, and so uplifting to be around. And as they grow into children, they're fascinating and entertaining.
As much as I enjoy my life, I'm looking for someone to share it with. I love to travel, but don't much want to do it alone anymore. It's much more fun to have new experiences together. The same goes for going to concerts, the ballet, museums, and even movies. My experience is enhanced by your enjoyment.
There's more I could say, but let's leave it at that for now. If you've gotten this far and like what you've read, let me know!
