My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
With an introverted nature, I can be happy being alone, but I am very inquisitive about other people.

I haven't updated my website for a few years, and by now I've forgotten how to update it, but it's got lots of detail:

The OKCupid Personality graph says that I'm more aggressive AND more submissive. I guess that makes me lively company. Also, I don't know the difference between "indie" and "independent". My graph has both.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I retired the year before last. I'm considering moving to Herndon, VA. although I love my very inexpensive apartment in an old victorian house in eastern shore Maryland.

When I retired, I had a bad year with health. There was a week a year ago December when I could hardly talk or spell after a stroke, but I've made good recovery. My relatives and close friends still know I'm having trouble, but casual friends don't notice and forget. I've been swimming and losing weight steadily so I have gratitude for that.
I use a cane and I quit driving at least until my stroke issues are resolved. I'd like to be stroke free for another year.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
singing in harmony.
The first things people usually notice about me

is that I'm friendly and comfortable with people. People eventually learn that I'm introverted ... just not shy. I'm too outspoken to be shy, I guess.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: David Foster Wallace's Infinite Jest took me two years to read. Nevertheless, it's the best novel I've ever read.
Next time I read Middlemarch, I'll use a pencil to underline Elliot's insights.
Neal Stephenson - Two more to go in the Baroque trilogy.
Gödel, Escher, Bach. I read it a few times. I don't claim to understand it, but I really enjoyed it.
Saul Bellow
Jonathan Franzen (great essays)
Spiritual stuff by
Henri Nouwen,
Richard Foster,
Annie Dillard,…
Walter Wink on non-violence.

Music: Bluegrass, baroque, blues, big band. If it begins with b I like it? I recently discovered Hildgard von Bingen ( A.D.1098- 1179, check her out on Pandora)
But no autotune please. It bothers my ears. Because of autotune, I don't like modern pop music.

I most enjoy music made by friends. I like local talent in general.
My son does standup as a hobby. My grandson acts and is amazingly good.

Foods: I'm adventuresome with food, but I always order Palak Paneer at Indian restaurants. Favorite foods: pickled herring, fresh tuna, sweet basil (but not all at the same time)

Movies: I have a huge list of favorites. I like to recommend them to friends.
directors: Kurosawa, Campion, Ashby
Favorites dujour: Painted Veil, Dean Spanley, Secretary, The Whole Wide World, The Hudsucker Proxy, The Lives of Others, Clean and Sober, Calvary, Galaxy Quest ... and so many others ...
I just saw Birdman and it was great!

Television - Homicide, the Wire, Firefly, Deadwood, Slings and Arrows (Canadian), Middlemarch (Well done as PBS series and followed the book), The Americans, Manhattan, Better Call Saul, Justify, Daredevil (but for the violence) ... My current all time favorite is Rectify. There's a lot of garbage out there, but we are in the golden age of good television as well.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
love, music, gratitude, family, water-aerobics, soda stream

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
what plot can I build in a novel. Still haven't found one. I don't think my own life has a plot. When and if I write a novel, it'll be a snoozer.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
retired, so what day is it?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
is social failures/embarrassments of my past. But some of my greatest joys come as a result of social risks I took.

Pet peeves: stink bugs - I stomp on them and then regret it.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over. don't have to tell me you have a sense of humor. Everybody has a sense of humor. don't have to tell me you don't look your age. I can decide for myself from your picture. And telling me you don't act your age is not something to brag about.

... you are not lonely or bored, I'm sorry but I won't be able to help you very much; I don't understand lonely or boredom.

So much for ranting. I really hope you look at my question responses. I think that's where our personalities come through.

I'd be delighted if you're willing to use Skype or Face time.
