My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Me: Native Texan with Southern/Texas accent that is said to be 'soothing.' I paint pictures, make stained glass windows, do related things, and after many years of eating dirt and toughing it out, finally successful with it ( In my heart (you will decide whether in my feet) I'm a dancer, all day long. Unconventional but not weird, independent but not unreasonable, organized, well read, good listener. Mordant, subtle sense of humor, but in private, opens up to outlandishness. Simple unencumbered life, don't have or want much, the less the better. Though I keep up with current events, popular culture is mostly a turnoff. I don't have a TV or a cell phone. Low profile, retiring, my work prominently on display, but not me. Handy with hammer and nail, mostly housebroken (don't leave lid up, put cap back on toothpaste), good kitchen help, lucky I like all the right foods, don't recall ever voluntarily going into a McDonalds. When I take pleasure it is always in simple things.

Though my work has me spending a whole lot of time in the arena of religion, I'm not churchy, at least not today's kind of churchy. In my youth I was in a very active Episcopal congregation in a fine old Gothic Revival church building, so you could say that's where my moral underpinnings were formed. The sacraments and offices were from The Book of Common Prayer, a towering masterpiece. All gone, replaced by pablum and a lot of pandering to dumbed down sensibilities instead of challenges to aspire.

You: Well. Do you have a good sense of who you are? Do you have your own interests? Do you have a point of view? Do you like to listen and actually hear what the other person has to bring to the conversation? Do you like yourself, take pride in yourself? Do you look forward to what you are going to do? Have a positive attitude even if you've hit a rough patch? Can you be satisfied just hanging around? Do you cuss and drink artistically, with verve and elan?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working away on my projects.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
...making art, sizing up situations and seeing them for what they actually are.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I had to go out to a church on a recent Sunday morning to deliver a stained glass design, and when I got there a service had just finished. An older gentleman from the congregation rushed toward me and exclaimed "You have beautiful hair!" Hmm...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I think I'm more in the habit of discerning quality rather than having preferences. I admire so much more than I could ever list. Plus, I look at masterworks all day long, so I'm rather spoiled. OK, I'll throw down a few so you'll know where I'm coming from:

Book - The Tempest (William Shakespeare, I know it's a play, but it makes good reading in a book.), Of Human Bondage (Somerset Maugham), The Grass Harp (Truman Capote), Blood Meridian (Cormac McCarthy), Black Spring (Henry Miller)...

Film - Scheherazade (D. W. Griffith), La Strada (F. Fellini), La Belle et La Bete (the Cocteau version of 1953), Lolita (the Kubrick version of 1962)... The throwaway character of today's 'movies' and just about all of the formulaic, predictable products of current pop culture are annoyingly thin and too often unsavory.

Television - Requiem for a Heavyweight (Playhouse 90, 1956), Death of a Salesman (ABC TV, 1985), Brideshead Revisited (Granada Television, 1981)...

Music - The Four Seasons (Vivaldi), Gymnopedies and Gnossiennes (Satie), Symphony #9 in E Minor "From the New World" (D'vorak), anything Mahler, Sibelius, Berlioz, Mendelssohn, Schubert, the Wagner opera overtures, etc., ad infinitum.

With wine (merlot) or other sippin' beverage (Jack Black): Later Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Sara Vaughan, Stan Kenton, Johnny Hartman...

For beer drinking (Shiner Bock), the later Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys, later things of Johnny Cash or Merle Haggard...

Gospel: Dorothy Love Coates and the Gospel Harmonettes, Elvis Presley...

Painting should be a category here, so - Velazquez, Giorgione, Rothko, Homer, Ryder, McClure... before painting was (temporarily, I believe) overwhelmed by the stupid jokes of Postmodernism, Conceptualism, hucksterism, moneyism, etc.

Food - Yes
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A friend
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Every kind of fine art. A logical mind such as mine being comfortable entertaining the idea of mystery, of the inexplicable in our midst. Best not to think (ruminate) except when appropriate.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I cry at super market openings ;-)
