Living in the present used to be a goal; now it's a way of life.I'm
drawn to people who are relaxed, open and speak from their hearts
as often as their minds.
My career path has been mostly in communications management and
consulting---in public broadcasting, cable television and nonprofit
management. My life path today is mostly about writing, singing and
other self-expression involving people and causes I care
The spiritual dimension of my life is very important to who and
where I am.
As measured by my vitality, physical and mental energy, curiosity
and life style, I'm in my mid-60's and most people I meet assume
the same. Most women I'm compatible with are in their 50's and
60's. My calendar age is in the mid-70's but if I listed that at
the top, anyone who expressed a general age preference in the 60's
would not see my profile. So, I listed my vitality age above and my
calendar age here for full disclosure.
What I’m doing with my life
In recent years I've let my left brain take more naps so my right
brain can come out to play. Write regularly on topics serious )and
not so serious) and sing -to connect with people and causes I care
I just completed a a four-month, life changing adventure living is
San Miguel de Allende, one of the world's most beautiful, beguiling
and livable places. San MIguel will be my second home going forward
and Boston is a new regular stop to visit mu son, his wife and new
Wherever I am, will continue my casual, coffee house style singing
and aiming for 2013 release of a collection of mostly irreverent
sayings, quotes with a spiritual bent.
I’m really good at
Building collaborative ventures around causes I care about and
cbringing like-hearted people together to share music, comedy and
other just for fun experiences.
Only pay attention to public officials and media sources that are
mostly fact-based and solutions oriented
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile, sense of humor and open communication.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
M musical tastes run the gamut of pop, folk and blues and a bit of
jazz. Favorites include Michael McDonald, Eliza Gilkyson, Amos Lee,
Leonard Cohen, Ray LaMontagne, Shelby Lynne, Allison Krauss and
local favorites like the Resentments. Live music is a major
passion---I must have it regularly.
Love to share new food discoveries, especially ethnic and seafood
restaurants. A regular at the Arbor.
Read mostly non-fiction but am hooked on mystery writers John
Lescroart and Greg Iles. Enjoy spending time with Mariann
Williamson, Don Miguel Ruiz, Byron Katie, Wayne Dyer and other
upbeat spiritual sources.
The six things I could never do without
Family, friends, faith, music, animals (including Purrty, The
Wonder Cat), travel---in the U.S. and beyond---and shared laughter.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Having thought way too much now I'm like my friend who answers the
question "How are you? with "Better than I think."
On a typical Friday night I am
There is no typical--- open to all possibilities.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I know what private means. So be it.
You should message me if
You're curious about what we might have in common. In my
experience, small leaps of faith---especially in the direction of
new people---are a source of new energy, joy and unexpected
