Intelligent, intuitive, very analytical and clear, and creative.
What I’m doing with my life
Composer of art (classical) music. I'm actually getting played
these days. I realize that there are many who rightfully cringe at
the very mention of modern music. I'll just say it doesn't have to
be that way. To show I am not one of those "modrin composers", and
not from ego, I decided to publish here the address of one short
piece of mine the conductor put on youtube.
It was written last year to fulfill a request for something similar
to Barber's lovely Adagio - most of my music is somewhat more
adventurous. I also do sales for a music related company I started
with a friend to pay the mortgage.
I’m really good at
Teaching piano. Coming up with pretty tunes. (Yes, I believe art
music should still have them.)
The first things people usually notice about me
I'd like to think people notice that I'm a clear thinker, have a
developed sense of and passion for fairness and justice, clear
ideas about beauty and aesthetics, and am a very good arguer.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Well, first Bach, then some others.
The six things I could never do without
Bach, coffee, my sweet dog (well, she's 17, so I'll probably have to do without her eventually), a few good friends. Speaking of my dog, this evening, some poor, presumably female wretch ratted me out - I had the temerity to post a picture of my sweet mutt solo. OKC seems to have a policy that allows you to have a picture of your feet on your page (yes, I have seen this), but not of your pet if you are not in it. I think it's reasonable to presume that the purpose of a picture in a profile is to give a reader more information about the subject of that profile. I ask you, dear reader, what, in your opinion, would tell you more about me - a picture of my sweet dog or one of my feet?
Update: Molly died January 30, 2015. She'll be in my heart forever.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The function of art and whether it is fulfilling that function these days.
Just now, I've spent a very little time thinking about why OKC considers browsing invisibly something worth paying for. Why would I want to browse invisibly? Don't I want someone to know that I found her picture attractive enough to click on? And while I appreciate the thought of being listed as someone's favorite, I hope it's understood that as a non-paying member, I'm unable to see who has such refined taste in men.
Maybe someone can help me with this one. WHY do so many OKC female pseudonyms end in "taco", "thecat", "asaurus", and "inabox"?
On a typical Friday night I am
Sitting at my computer or piano trying to find notes.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Do you remember that episode of Seinfeld where they were trying to
figure out who stole the raisins? Well....
You should message me if
You really don't like Shostakovich. (just kidding, sorta...)
