I'm a down-to-earth Taurus with a Sagittarius moon (love to think
about ideas, etc.), and a Libra Ascendent (want to be social).
Quite a combination! I am an INJT on the Myers-Briggs scale.
Spirituality is very important to me and I am also interested in
Consciousness studies. My favorite spiritual leaders are the Dalai
Lama and Thich Nhat Hanh. I recently retired and bought a house and
I am learning how to maintain and decorate my new house and yard.
What I’m doing with my life
What I'm doing since I've retired is to pursue the interests that I
didn't have much time for before -- arts and crafts, building
community with like-minded people, recycling, repurposing,
vegetable gardening, and running and bicycling.

books? Too many to remember. Music I listen to is classical, jazz,
Billie Holliday, Deadcandance, New age, nature, soundtrack from Oh
Brother Where Art Thou?. Typically love quirky and independent
films -- comedies and dramas. Also foreign films. I loved the movie
Nell and The Sound of Music when I was a kid. Favorite food is
fresh fruit and vegetables, along with nut breads, etc. -- anything
The six things I could never do without
my spiritual practice, my laptop, my creative instincts, family and
I spend a lot of time thinking about
life, the nature of things, that which is essential, but invisible
to the eye.
On a typical Friday night I am
at home. I stay active during the day and usually want to just rest
in the evening, though I do go out once in awhile on Fridays.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
spirituality is central to me and brings me back to my essential
self time and again
