Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love listening to and telling stories...... I live in Santa Cruz
because I want to be near the ocean and the redwoods.
I often spend weekend afternoons exploring, reading, or going to
Bookshop Santa Cruz and browsing. Sometimes I hang out with my son
(and his son) or my ex and sometimes I hang out with a young lady
who is my best friend. And I hate going to the gym, at least 3
times a week (I reward myself by going to the steam room). I like
listening to all sorts of music and I like to watch people dance-I
am too shy to dance myself because I walk with a limp (if you have
ever watched HOUSE MD on TV, I limp less than Dr. House).
I am an agent of Karma (an attorney), ---I represent a few clients
who have been hurt in lawsuits against the person/people who hurt
them. I only work part time because life is short.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
All I can come up with are vague generalizations. I am trying to
help people...trying to figure out who I am (you'd think I'd have a
clue by now), trying to find/create my soul...(and that "agent of
Karma" stuff-see above)
My Mom and Dad live in rural Washington (State). They are both 87
and live on their own on a little island in Puget Sound. I used to
go visit them once or twice a year. Then my Dad had a fall, so now
I go up there to help out every 6 weeks to two months. Then I come
back so I can be here for my son. my grandson and my ex. I guess
you could say that family is important to me.
4/29/15 note. Since the above was written my Mom passed away and I
brought my Dad down here to live in Scotts Valley. He just broke
his pelvis the day after his 90th birthday. I have no business
posting here because most of my time is consumed taking care of
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am good at listening to other people's stories and telling my own
stories (or stories I "borrow" from other people).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People notice my smile, my dimples and my deep blue eyes.
And I worry that people are put off because I walk with a limp.

Music and Food
I have eclectic tastes in music and food; my favorite food in the
moment depends on the mood I am in and who I am with.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The people I am close to;
walking and hiking
(you could say they are not "things", but I took the question in a
the redwoods and the ocean;
my computer (hooked up to the internet) and my books.
But is that six?....hmmmm....I guess I'll add:
romantic love and passionate sex.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The Joy that sings in the beauty that surrounds me. It is hard to
remember that this day will never come again. The time is now; the
place is here and there are no second chances at a single moment.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The question assumes that there is a such a thing as a "typical"
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Nothing, nada, zip, zero. "Private" means you don't tell anyone
else. If I put anything private here, it would no longer
Duhhh....I guess I need to watch out for making statements of the

response I make.
