My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Born in 1950 the first five decades of my life map onto the last half of the 20th century. Came of age in the 60s and left the country in the early 70s. I've lived in Asia and Africa and delight at being in the bay area where I can get any Asian cuisine. Do wish Ethiopian food were more available, love eating with my hands.

I can be serious or silly depending on the day. I appreciate intelligence and humor, and have a well tuned sense of irony.

Walking, reading, stretching/yoga are favorite quiet things,also like exploring both urban neighborhoods and woods. I've never owned a television in my adult life, but now having a computer sort of negates the absence.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Seems like I have an unexpected opportunity to reinvent myself (again). enjoying the flexibility of working independently.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
listening, paying attention and turning complex ideas into words. good at seeing things from different perspectives & laughing (and have been watching clips of BBC comedy shows for daily laughter)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm short and I have curly hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
books - Regeneration Trilogy by Pat Barker, made me realize how little I know about WWI. I read a lot, mostly modern fiction, and sci fi. Especially like Ursula Leguin's take on speculative social science. and working my way through a number of popular science - Oliver Sacks, (the Mind's Eye), Jill Bolte Taylor (My Stroke of Insight) Len fisher (The Perfect Swarm).

Recently heard Salman Rushdie speak and read his memoir of the fatwa years (written in the third person) Joseph Anton.

movies - Mississippi Masala by Mira Nair (saw it the first time in Kampala Uganda) , and enter the Dragon by Bruce Lee (embarrassing but saw it after so many martial arts movies in Asia) and Lives of Others (simply an amazing movie)

food - almost any Asian cuisine, particularly Japanese noodles, and love Ethiopian food.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
lots of things I deeply appreciate. know I could do with out a lot of them, but glad I don't have to.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Patterns and how things fit together.
The lushness of abundance and the simplicity of minimalism
Just saw Anna Deavere Smith in Let Me Down Easy. An awe inspiring act of craft and content. she brings forward the varied voices and people to show the inequities in the system and the commonality of the spirit.

Wondering what the OKC numbers mean, particularly the % friend and enemy. Although so many of the questions seem irrelevant (and designed for someone else) I still want the numbers to look good.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
well it's Friday night and I'm on the computer.... typical.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I never forgave the Dodgers for leaving Brooklyn. and I don't seem to like to use caps to start a sentence.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are looking for lively conversation, walks, humor,or just a chance to hear another person's experience of the world. Or you're also looking for that elusive balance of someone familiar enough to be comfortable, and different enough to give a new take on the world. (PS- my view of tea is Japanese tea ceremony, Indian Chai, or an English milk tea. only acceptable tea party is the mad hatter's!)
