My self-summary
For starters, cerebral, fun-loving and earthy. I'll have to work on this one. Extraverted introvert.
What I’m doing with my life
Making delicious lazy plans for retirement: a good balance of work, play, travel and creative endeavors, including some deferred maintenance on my old house.

Occasional low-key blogging for fun on another site.

Meeting as many new people as I can, opening doors...looking in...
I’m really good at
l i s t e n i n g
discerning and analyzing...not that I've used those skills to put my life in total order
appreciating beauty
being a friend
I can make a kick-ass pie, billy boy, billy boy
The first things people usually notice about me
Ask them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Just found this and will check in frequently:
Am currently working through some of Ivan Doig's books and am pleased to be reading them on the ground, not saving them for plane flights. Billy Collins' poetry is a special favorite. I like indie and foreign movies and the occasional visit to The Charles in Baltimore. I keep thinking Soylent Green is more and more prophetic, especially during wildfire season. I don't have TV but get the occasional fix at a friend's house. Most any kind of music (not rap) with a strong leaning toward classical, Celtic, world... I'm pretty much an omnivore but prefer fish to meat. Indian and Middle Eastern food. Gold Rush apples. Caprese salads. Strong coffee. Gewürztraminer is a nectar of the gods. So is Red Bull.
The six things I could never do without
The love of my friends and family.
A sense that I can be helpful and useful.
As for things...iPhone, a good search engine, wheels, glasses
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Not a LOT of time, but...what the heck is with this site's rating system? Ditch the "enemy" thing.

But I think lots, period. About everything (except the lives of celebrities), especially things that have evolving answers. Sometimes I wonder why I can't back up a few paces, observe the whole world and figure out how to make it work for the greatest good. But I've stopped beating myself up for not having done it yet.

"When one loses the deep intimate relationship with nature, then temples, mosques and churches become important." Krishnamurti

I wonder about the pull of geography and how it can change through life. As a kid I lived for swimming and wanted to live in a warm place and do dolphin research. Now it's more open spaces on land, with cool weather, that appeal to me.
On a typical Friday night I am
There are no typical Friday nights.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Surely you jest. It wouldn't be private then, would it?
You should message me if
you're a little quirky
you're a good road tripper
