My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
When the end of the story comes back to the beginning --has to come back to the beginning -- if there was to be any real meaning. So I am living about five minutes from the hospital in which I was born. With the twenty year gap in between, I am a native Minneapolitan who has become too much like so many native St. Paulites from my youth who never crossed over into Hennepin County to eat or work or play. Maybe once a week. In forty years of Minnesota living, I have never lived in the suburbs but am intrigued to start visiting more suburbs, along with writing a better self-summary. But like a English teacher once told us, never reveal too much on the first page.

I am more eloquent with the written than the spoken word, except for my self-summary. So far...

The music of Lockjaw Davis. And I know it is time to go to sleep when I hear in my head the theme song of the Patty Duke Show.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
This category seems to be tangible THINGS, not people:
1) Hot water
2) Goose down pillows
3) A glass of orange juice in the morning
4) The written word from near and far
5) A pen to save a thought to later elaborate on, in writing.
6) A toilet plunger, to not elaborate.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
If cows laughed, would milk come out of their noses?

Patty, or Cathy? The powerball number. How legal briefs mostly never are. The declaration page of the life insurance policy. How legal the language, with exclusions and conditions in place, before searching for the unconditional 'Til death do us part' coverage.

The vintage. The goodness and freshness of a vintage. So the times you were born into determined your goodness? When even after 200 answers on a relationship theme of OKCupid, if the real goal was goodness, where are the questions about goodness? And was it, like wine, determined by the previous summer moisture of your life, as well the heat of August? Or just by the terroir of where the grapes grew? And how in the battle for the heart and the mind of a mate, did a couple at this chapter of life keep a freshness, after the tension from shared fertility no longer was there? Was I just looking for someone to share wine with, for goodness' sake.

I spent time noticing the missing discussion on OKCupid about love. When you come up blank. When you are born blank. And your parent(s) had to create on you. I spend time thinking about all the decisions between good and evil, thinking about the truth about love, when you are born blank: how many people are genial and supercompetent on the surface while a cataclysmically intense world churns just inside, in terms of inner growth? Psychologists say that humans are capable of only five or six loves in a lifetime. Since the average person falls in love 2.5 times in life, one good lesson is, be truthful and don't use them up too quickly.

I think a lot about humor, lightness, ghosts and the meringue on banana cream pies. And my intensity within come with this same kind of lightness, if you care to dig in. So as complexity stymies rational thinking in terms of growth, Patty,or Cathy?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
awake until 1 am.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I spend less than sixty minutes during the NFL season watching pro football until Super Bowl Sunday. And I am really not as serious as some of my serious answers. And I find myself wondering, now that I am sixty, if I ever would meet a character like Ruth Gordon played in Harold and Maude. And I feel still about as mature as Harold, just not as wacked out. So would this be the place to say that I do the kegel as well as the Ignatian exercises? And despite that OKCupid places me in Minneapolis, I have lived in St Paul since 1992. But I am aware that OKCupid is manipulating data, conducting experiments without apology to manipulate emotions, according to the July 28 2014 news about the evolving invasion of privacy policy. "To test if its matching algorithm works and goes beyond the power of suggestion, OkCupid also told good matches that they were bad matches," per USA Today. So who can you trust on the internet? And why should we answer any more questions online?
