My self-summary
A friend sent me a card for my 70th Birthday recently. It showed a gnarled, bent tree hugging the edge of a cliff. The caption said, “Some trees are mere saplings at age 70.”*

Well, of course! I’m old enough to know better, but some chances are worth taking—and here I am. I’m not afraid to ask questions, nor upset that sometimes I have to. I embrace my strengths and don’t obsess over my weaknesses.

I’ll hold your hand in the museum, get absurdly “high” on the sounds of beautiful music, ponder and discuss the play we just saw, enjoy your family and play with your pets. Then, happily, lie in your arms, savoring the day, because you so readily returned the favor(s).

I won’t embarrass you too badly at the bridge table. A gourmet dinner for twenty? Not a problem, but I am reluctant to admit why one of my porch lights didn't work for months. Yes, my French and German seem to come back when needed, but I am horribly rusty.

I’d like to find a man who hasn’t lost his love of learning, his appreciation of beauty, who relishes interacting with a wide variety of people, and who is wise enough to accept that none of us have all the answers to anything.

If he happens to enjoy, as I do, living in a dot of blue in a sea of red, great. If he agrees that pet hair on clothes and furniture is not a disaster, even better. If he knows and accepts the “woulda’s, shoulda’s, coulda’s” as well as the “dids, and am doing’s” he is the kind of mature man that interests me.

There is only one deal breaker: No smokers or “trying to quit.”

Drop me a line. Let’s chat!

What I’m doing with my life
One of my pleasures is being active in the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, both taking and teaching classes, and participating in several interest groups. I take full advantage of the cultural activities in town, and--oh yes--am cleaning out my attic!
I’m really good at
teaching, writing, photography, cooking. Also misplacing keys, glasses--you know, the "would forget my head if it weren't attached" syndrome
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Jared Diamond's "Guns, Germs and Steel," and "Collapse" and Terry Pratchett's hilarious "DiscWorld" series; Classical music, opera, jazz, bagpipes and close harmony a cappella (like barbershop): sushi, oysters, fresh BLT's, cheeses, chocolate anything
The six things I could never do without
beauty and cultural activities
friendship
reading
learning
love
pets
On a typical Friday night I am

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If it is "private," I don't talk about it!
