My self-summary
Thank you in advance for stopping in,
As many Boomers did, I followed a pretty linear route through life. I got married young after school, worked hard, went to college, bought a house, had children and got divorced. That is the surface story. Underneath there is another one. Though I wouldn't share it here, I like this story because I got to write parts of it instead living out familial history and wondering why "things" turn out the way they did. It truly is a "long slow journey from the inside out" but worth it is all I'll say. I'll tell you the author of the quote when I see you. I venture to say I am more than a bit evolved as a result.
I am not one for public declarations of this or that as I do have a little bit of a private side but thankfully not enough to fill a single page in People magazine. I leave that to the beautiful, dysfunctional celebrities I see on my way out on the supermarket check out line. The true joy and contentment I feel and enjoy are heightened by my own awareness of it.
I was a career INTJ but eventually became an ENFP.
Some favorite quotes are:

"Every saint has a past and every sinner has a future."
"When you tell the truth you don't have to remember anything."
What I’m doing with my life
I retired once from an large company where I was a computer technician. I have completely switched careers to meaningful, substantive work at a non profit. It is true that when you find work that you truly care about it ceases to become work.
Currently I work on leading a balanced lifestyle. One part yoga/exercise, one part work, and one part being in the here and now (or trying to). I lead a pretty simple life, uncomplicated and rather straight forward, boring to some possibly attractive to others. No drama here. Life really is good...especially when you have your health.
I’m really good at
the work I do. I am trying to be objective here. Being successful at what I do is important to me as it is for a lot of people. The work I do is also a grounding force in my life as I am exposed to clients'
lives that have problems that are sometimes overwhelming to them. I watch them work hard to overcome them... and I can listen to their failings as well. These are lessons in humility if I care to a student and often I am.
Observing their humanity at its most vulnerable nurtures the compassion I want in my life and furnishes me an unwanted privilege into their lives that I'd poorer in spirit without.
I make people feel comfortable around me and am sensitive to their feelings. What I try to bring into the larger world is a sense of peace and purpose that matter. In preparing for what comes next I simply try to be open to the moment thought I am not always successful. Long ago I was the rock in that metaphorical stream bed and now I am the water.
I feel some people may sense that in me.
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't know. I am friendly, welcoming and unassuming. You tell me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Sirius presets are The Loft, Underground Garage, Broadway, Classical, NPR. I am Bruce adverse but Paul Simon and Randy Newman friendly.
I am in a monthly book club and read a variety of books. Previously, I listed a bunch of authors but my taste ranges from the side of a milk carton to contemporary fiction.
I also enjoy local/community theater and more so in outdoor venues. Summer and Spring are my favorite seasons. Once in a while I go to the city for professional theater or dance.
I just saw "Nebraska" in the movie house and thoroughly enjoyed it as well as "her".
I recently saw "Wicked" and "Twelfe Night" on Broadway and go when I can afford it. I believe the arts are life enhancing and these two shows affirm that statement.
The six things I could never do without
Actually nothing!
Attachment causes suffering, one of the four truths.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
global affairs, listening to international problem solvers and consensus builders working on current problems facing various societies.
I also attempt to live or be in the present moment and to experience the true gratitude I have for my life. I have lived long enough to know that even great heartbreak can nurture compassion and goodness and a deep appreciation from life's simplest and unexpected lessons... and from those lessons that one can come to know that thanksgiving is just not another day on some calendar.
On a typical Friday night I am
I am out at something cultural, visiting friends or simply having fun. I hate to stay home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Pronouncements from self anointed, self righteous, right wing Republican "patriots" are personally nausea inducing (but my immunity system is pretty strong). =)
I always stop and watch the lobsters in the case at the supermarket.
Sometimes I suspect that people that wear sunglasses have something to hide.
I can't be left alone with a slice of pecan pie.
The music from the film "Brokeback Mountain" is emotional and powerful.
