My self-summary
I'm a host & reporter at an NPR member station.

Life-long fascination with linguistics—from 4th grade to college, and beyond. Violinist (also since 4th grade). Guitarist (vaguely), and erstwhile a cappellist. Polymathic dilettante. Tangentialist (!).

After some fun in glorious Northern Arizona, returned to the Northeast a few years ago. A wealth of strong connections here—family, friends, and alum of Yale & Columbia.

Vegetarian for about 25 years—health, compassion, clean living great motivators for me.
What I’m doing with my life
Listening . . . then telling stories (the ones I get paid for right now are in public radio: I work at an NPR member station).

Here's an NPR story of mine from 2012—kind of inspiring!

Gettin' in the bike saddle (as in road cycling).
I’m really good at
Articulating accreted wisdom.
Noticing the periphery.
Staying strongly positive.
The first things people usually notice about me
Well, the first things that I notice people remarking on:

Unusual eyes.
Resonant voice.
Youthfulness.

Also, maybe noticed formerly, according to one woman, I 'could charm the birds out of the trees.'

. . . yah, I think with the right person!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Ursula K. Le Guin, Oliver Sacks . . .
    perennial touchstones: Didion & McPhee.
        Marie Howe. Brautigan.

The Last Station, The Royal Tenenbaums, and Mumford.     Cookie's Fortune, Big Night, and You Can Count on Me.
        And . . . Stranger than Fiction.

Van Morrison, Ravel, and Sam Cooke.
    Etta James, Alison Krauss, and Bach.
        Johnny Mercer.

And, some favorite poetry:

Plena mujer, manzana carnal, luna caliente,
espeso aroma de algas, lodo y luz machacados,
qué oscura claridad se abre entre tus columnas?
Qué antigua noche el hombre toca con sus sentidos?
The six things I could never do without
The word 'never' seems foolhardy—
        I do strongly appreciate the following:

open space
a musical instrument
meaningful work
the richness of knowing people who've known me for decades
touching
peace
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm calendrically autistic—strongly so.
I’m looking for
  • Straight girls only
  • Ages 41–55
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For long-term dating
You should message me if
You are extremely positive—
            or extremely willing to explore being that way!

You are warm, and kind.
