Arts and crafts bought the farm. I love to sing and play music. Most of my energy goes there now. I love my community and friends. I love the land. I am blown away by the beauty of the world all around me. I feel a need to do what I can to keep the world a place where ALL our kids to come can live well and love.
I host house concerts at our local community center for great musicians and groups. A big reason I do that is so I can put them up in my home, get to know them, trade songs and play music with them.
I work out ,bike, hike, play volley ball, try to keep my body together.
I love to travel and see new places.
Retirement? Phooey. I don't think I've ever been trying to do so many things at once in my life. Probably because I'm so aware that I'm a short timer now...Time is flying by.
I sure would love to have a partner in crime;-)
And I'm sure not done with wanting a lover.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm trying to kick start a music career. Still selling pottery on
etsy. I'm back into raising sheep after getting to eat some of the
cougar that wiped out my last flock. I'm performing at shows and
hosting house concerts for great musicians. What kind of music do I
play? That's always a hard question for a singer/songwriter. My new
answer is "home grown, free range, organic, folky blues Americana".
Big plus if you love to sing and/or play an instrument.
I would love to be a duo.
I went to Paul's (Lumen) wake last night. Open mike..People read
his poetry, their poetry, played their instruments, sang their
songs. I sang songs to salute him too. My friend Gabe was with him
when he checked out. I don't remember the exact quote, but to
paraphrase he said " It's time to go", took a deep breath and went.
Made me realize that I don't believe in death. There is only
change. The whole universe is only energy buzzing with life. There
is nothing inanimate. Our egos are little foci that pop up and then
melt back into the whole. If there wasn't what we call death, there
could be no life. Change would stop and the universe would freeze.
That would be real death.
Don't get me wrong. I'm in no way ready to leave (change) yet. "I
have miles to go before I sleep". I hope I have Much living and
loving to do with this body and mind. It's the time I have to act
for change in the world.
I hope, when it is my time, I can leave and change like Paul did.
I’m really good at
Singing! Little jokes and smiling, enjoying life, laughing ( I
inherited a great belly laugh from my grandmother Bubbi), cooking
(when it's not just for me), exploring, observing and appreciating
the world around me.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been told I look better in person.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I just watched a movie on netflicks called Even the Rain or Tambien
la Lluvia that had me damn near sobbing at the end because it was
so good. If you can speak Spanish or don't mind subtitles watch it.
If it hits you in your heart, you will know something about mine.
For books, movies and music, depth and heart are big to me
especially if some good laughs are included. I'm very adventurous
when it comes to food.
The six things I could never do without
Love, family. friends, contact with nature, music, the joy of being
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to bridge the gap and bring people together.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing music, watching, dancing to or hosting music, visiting
friends, hanging at home with a good book or net flicks movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If we click we'll probably find out.
