My self-summary
So at this stage in my life, I feel like I know myself pretty well, although every now and then I get a surprise.... I'm really interested in finding someone to share the little things with, a sunset, the way a butterfly's wings are nearly transparent, the way shelter dog commercials make me cry, how transcendent a live concert can be, and how I can get lost in a good book....
What I’m doing with my life
I still work full time, as much as I envy people who are retired. I'm a director of a program so there's always too much work, but I'm pretty good at keeping boundaries....I also write songs, perform them sometimes, keep good friends, and am pretty happy with my life.
I’m really good at
ah, that's a tough one. I'm a good friend, a good mother, a good songwriter, sometimes.....
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm pretty quiet, the classic introvert. So I'm not the one people notice. I'm the one people talk to, though, and that's good enough for me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Love reading, all kinds. From Stephen King to Alice Hoffman to Barbara Kingsolver to well, just about everyone. I'm getting better at putting down books that don't grab me in the first 100 pages, only because there's too many books and too little time!

I'm a big fan of live music. I'm a folkie at heart but I love Coldplay, The Head and the Heart, Tallest Man on Earth, Cosy Sheridan, Sloan Wainwright, and I could go on and on. I love finding new music, not one of those people who only like the "oldies."
The six things I could never do without
my kids
my pets
dark chocolate
coffee
music
books
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to retire, where to retire, how to make things easy for my kids, how to be happy as I age, how to travel more, how to remember to be grateful, how to keep living a fulfilling life....
On a typical Friday night I am
These days, I'm reading. Or writing. Or singing. Or hanging out with a friend and sharing wine.....
You should message me if
you're interested in anything I've said. What is written is important, but face to face is the only way we'll know if there's any chemistry, and I'm not too old for that....
