My self-summary
(I live in Brooklyn but spend time in Great Barrington. Am hoping to spend more time there now that my daughter's about to leave for college.)
Thanks for venturing past the pics to the tedious essay portion of the profile. I'll try my best to entertain you. Remembering my English teacher's admonition, “show don't tell”, it's hard not to wince as I write this. About me- smart as in sharp critical thinker, lover of ideas, always considering the big picture and all that- but you wouldn't want me on your Trivial Pursuit team. That said, in recent years, thanks to a little meditation, I've also learned how not to think- what a relief. I'm a sweetie- ridiculously affectionate, candid, self-aware, animated, easy to talk to, a curious and interested listener. And bold- not afraid to say that the emperor's naked, stop a dogfight or straddle you on your lap, slide my hands under your shirt and kiss you at a bar. Like the city, but happier in the woods. Left of liberal- thinking about the state of the world makes my stomach queasy, so enough about that. Well-travelled, but I won't bore you w a list of places I've visited. [I'm really 53, and photos are recent , so no surprises.]
What I’m doing with my life
Professional Lorax. Hanging out w friends. Trying to spend time w my teen daughter. Doing city stuff. Leaving the city. Foolin' around. Keeping fit. Playing catch. Gathering wood, making fires. Relaxing w dog on belly, listening to music. Puttering around w plants in the dirt. Getting worse at word games.
I’m really good at
dancing, swimming a long distance underwater, dog sledding, planting little kisses on the side of my lover's neck, apologizing
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I see everyone's got inspirational quotes in their profiles. Here's one I try to follow, from John Waters: 'If you go home with somebody, and they don't have books, don't fuck 'em.' Needless to say, I'm an avid reader. Love talking about books, articles, reading favorite passages out loud (to you?). Good Old Neon* by DF Wallace was so impactful. Reading Mating by Norman Rush now. Always reading a back issue of The New Yorker- will never catch up. Music list- too daunting! Food is so yummy. Taste, aside, I care about the quality of what I eat, how it's grown, how the animals were raised- I like to know that the chicken I'm eating led a happy, self-actualized little chicken life; but you have to be a bit fanatical (not judging!) to be utterly consistent in these regards, and I'm not. The only good movies I can recall: After the Wedding, The Other Son, Blue Valentine, A Royal Affair, End of Watch, restaurant scene in Take this Waltz, dance scene in 35 Shots of Rum.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
*the narrator answers this ? for me better than i ever could.
