Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love to hear music, especially folk and Celtic. I grew up in a
close family and am family-oriented. I love children and would like
to have children more in my life, so a mother or grandmother would
definitely work. I am honest, open, funny, caring, and playful. One
of my biggest joys in life is getting a child to smile. When I
lived in the Bay Area, I volunteered at Children’s Hospital
Oakland. I enjoyed just being there with the kids – being there for
the children in a sort of Zen-like way, not caring why they were
there nor letting the sadness of them being there overwhelm being
there for them. I recently began volunteering at Sacramento
Receiving Home and love it. I enjoy reading "The Economist". I
pretty much read it cover-to-cover every week. I like the world
view. My politics are a little more liberal than theirs but I like
that they are willing to look at things pragmatically. I also enjoy
their wit. While not particularly active right now, I have been
politically active in the past, mainly related to Central America,
where I have traveled a little. Currently, my involvement is
through donations, e.g to Doctors without Borders and Habitat for
Humanity. I attend a Quaker meeting, just a little different from
the Unitarians. I've traveled a little - Brazil, Central America,
Ireland, Scotland, Portugal, a little bit in England and France. I
would like to explore other countries.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I used to work with computers in health care. I retired in March
2013 since there was a good early retirement package. So far I've
been busy catching up on things and working on a project with my
siblings. In addition, I volunteer with children, go to live music,
visit relatives I haven't seen for awhile, and am slowly learning
to cook better. I have taken a clown class and an improv class,
since I love to play. I am working a little to supplement my

Some of my favorite movies are old and some recent. Among films I
like are King of Hearts, Frida, My Dinner with Andre, Moulin Rouge,
the Harry Potter movies, the Shrek movies, the Toy Story movies,
Life is Beautiful, the recent Alice in Wonderland, Argo, and Enough
Said. I also enjoy movies that help me see things differently such
as Inception and The Matrix. I do enjoy going to movies or watching
at home. Having someone to cuddle with while watching a movie would
For reading, I tend to read non-fiction. A couple of interesting
books I read recently are "The Righteous Mind - Why Good People are
Divided by Politics and Religion" and "Aristotle and an Aardvark go
to Washington - Understanding Political Doublespeak through
Philosophy and Jokes".
