My self-summary
I like the simple basic stuff that makes life a wonderful thing: A road trip with a friend that lands you in a place with no cell phone reception. A walk down an interesting street with dusty store fronts. The tweets of real birds. Stuff like that. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a Luddite. Far from it. I just don't want to miss the moment of now. And there's a good chance you'll miss it when you're looking down at that black rectangle in your hand all the time. Besides, walking into a light-pole sucks, even at 5 miles per hour. Just saying.

Anyhow, some biographical notes on the scorecard: I've lived in the Los Angeles area most of my life (born in Santa Barbara, but been here in LA since the early 80s).

I'm a reader. Going through a bit of a non-fiction phase right now, but I always have a good book of poetry around. And I write. Mostly poems that I think only make sense to me -- although a few people have told me that I'm on to something. It will all end up in a steamer trunk, anyhow.

Music is important to me. I think it serves a memory-marker function, if that makes any sense.

I like getting away from the city. That is good decompression. Once every 2 months or so, me and some friends head out to the Mojave, sit out and just watch the crazy stars. Love that. And I know a few small towns around LA where you can still find an occasional street or plaza that looks like it came out of a Steinbeck novel.

All right. Enough. My other little post-it notes below this one will give you a little more topography.
What I’m doing with my life
How I keep the lights on, eh? The puritan work ethic seeps into everything, I suppose. Whatever. Class action and e-discovery project management. Primarily 17200, MDL, and Wage & Hour. Like an air-traffic controller for paper airplanes...tons of expensive paper airplanes. When one of them crashes, no one gets hurt, but it can still be expensive.
I’m really good at
If I find something interesting, I'll master the knowledge base that surrounds it. So, for example, I've got mid-60s hard bob jazz down cold. And mechanical wristwatches. And World War 2 history. And all sorts of random topics. Like an idiot savant. Call me if you're on a gameshow. We'll get rich.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I talk a bit different. The word-choice, metaphors-for-the-point, and the cadence. They belong to me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Here's a sampler of albums I think are great: "The Procrastinator" (Lee Morgan); "Hatful of Hollow" (The Smiths); "Gala" (Lush); "Nights of Ballads and Blues" (McCoy Tyner); "Damaged" (Black Flag); "Microcastle" (Deerhunter); "Night Dreamer" (Wayne Shorter); "Willie and the Poor Boys" (CCR); "Patterns" (Modern Jazz Quartet); "Seventeen Seconds" (The Cure). Just a sampler, but all these records are amazing for entirely different reasons.

A smattering of books I've returned to or that impressed me: Day of the Locust (West); Freedom from the Known (Krishnamurti); The Back Country (Snyder); The Unexpected Universe (Eiseley); Oryx and Crake (Atwood); The Energy of Slaves (Cohen); Vurt (Noon)
The six things I could never do without
(1) Saturday morning. When I was little, for the cartoons. Now, just for my sanity.

(2) Some of my best friends, now scattered around the world (I need to know they are out there and still love me - they claim they do).

(3) Most of my relatives.

(4) Conversations about ideas and concepts.

(5) I think I can't do without water. I've never tried it for more than a day though.

(6) My vinyl record collection (I could live without it, but I would be bummed).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Origins. Disruptive wave patterns. Empty parking lots. Street lights. Boundary layers. Future cones. Dogs with floppy ears.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably just re-calibrating on the couch after an all too-long week. Maybe Milt Jackson is playing vibes in the background, helping me rest.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Until recently, I thought a pony was what you called a young horse. Just another "young horse descriptor" like colt, foal, etc. I had no idea a pony was just a member of a number of small horse breeds. Sorry horse (and pony) people.

If you should message me. Oh, and if you're the girl from Dylan's Love Minus Zero / No Limit, just write 'it's me' and I'll respond in a jiffy.
