My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love poetry, long walks on the beach, and poking dead things with a stick. (Only kidding about the poetry.)

As divisive as politics has become these days, I should mention that I am a proud liberal. I'd rather my tax dollars support education and single payer health care rather than war. I don't think the very wealthy should be able to buy our government. We need hand counted paper ballots; voting machines can be (and often are) rigged.

Still there? Good.

I live in the perfect location! My home is surrounded by trees. When the trees are leafed out, I can't see any other buildings at all. I'm off a dead end road, so it's very quiet and peaceful. I see deer and wild turkeys often, and have seen a coyote and a porcupine. My dogs enjoy the woods and chasing the turkeys.

And yet I'm only a ten minute drive from downtown Wausau, which boasts an amazing performing arts scene, a small but vibrant art museum and even some decent restaurants. The Wisconsin river runs through town, and has a world-class whitewater kayak course. It's fun to watch all the different kayak races. One of these days I may try it myself, tho I haven't yet.

I work a few hours a week with my UU church. For the last several years we've hosted Tibetan Buddhist teachers several times a year. Much to my surprise, I've become very interested in Buddhism. The Tibetan Buddhist teachers I've met seem so happy, peaceful and content. I want more of that in my life, and have been reading texts, attending teachings and meditating for the last few years. I'm calmer and more content because of it.

Last summer I had the opportunity to see/hear His Holiness the Dalai Lama in person, in this huge stadium. It was fascinating and odd at the same time. Guess I was expecting some bit of incisive wisdom to suddenly illuminate my life. No such luck, but I didn't really think that would happen. It was amazing to watch this very famous human chat with a room filled with literally thousands of folks.

My older son lives in Wausau. He is currently undergoing a very ugly divorce, which means I no longer see the step grand girls I had become very close to. Oh, well. My younger son is currently doing temporary work in the docks south of New Orleans and looking for a permanent position. He's an adventurer.

I also play with a string quartet (or sometimes a trio, depending on who's available). We play weddings, dinner parties and the like. It's tons of fun and even brings in a few bucks here and there. I love Celtic music, and play some fiddle tunes myself. I'd love to have a Celtic music jam around here, but no luck yet.

I've been divorced for a gadzillion years and am pretty used to being on my own. Still, it would be nice to find someone special to share my life. Who knows what will happen next? Anything is possible. We never know what life has in store for us, just around the next bend.

I am enthusiastic, impulsive, and welcoming
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am enjoying life! I'm volunteering at our local performing arts venue, and seeing a LOT of good shows. I love to travel, and have been taking a couple of trips most years. I also travel locally, sometimes to Minneapolis or Chicago for a variety of arts and performance events, not to mention good food. I'm meditating with a Tibetan Buddhist group pretty regularly. I don't pretend to understand even the basics of Buddhism, but I'm so impressed with the Tibetan Buddhist lamas I've met through their teaching visits. I want to be more like them, to have more peace, joy and contentment in my life. So I figure it's worth trying what they do (and trying to figure out what they do) to see if it helps.

I've done a little kayaking this summer, tho not nearly enough. It feels great to get out on the water, especially on a warm day. But whatever the weather, it feels like entering another, more natural world, just paddling along on top of the water and looking at the world. When I'm on the water I know that all is not lost.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at being friendly and welcoming. I get along splendidly with most dogs, especially large and medium sized dogs. (I am not a fan of really tiny dogs.) I play violin fairly well, and I enjoy playing chamber music. I'm not Itzak Perlman, but I have a good time making music. I like folk music, especially Celtic, Cape Breton and the like, and recently played with a guitar/violin duo around here. We all had a great time and hope to play together more.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have no idea. You'll have to tell me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Terry Pratchett, Christopher Moore's "Lamb" but none of his other books, Anne McCaffrey when I need an escape, Celtic music, Bach, cellos, Yo Yo Ma.

I love seafood, good steaks, fresh veggies, Chinese, Mexican, Italian, and most anything different from the regular hamburger routine (tho I do enjoy the occasional burger, too). Well made beer and good wine are an important complement to daily life.

Subject to change at whim.....
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Travel. A quiet place to retreat. My car (I live out in the country a bit, and public transportation is unavailable). The performing arts. Air, food, water and all that.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Music. Live music. Musicians. Being present. How music helps me be present. How I admire some people because I want to be them, or be like them. Can I be a German cellist in my next life? Please? (joking about the next life stuff.)

Tibetan Buddhism. I admire the teachers and practitioners I meet and want some of their joy, serenity, peace and happiness in my life. So I'm doing some reading and trying to see what it's all about.

Family. Children. Raising children. Trying not to think about this too much.

But that's just where I'm at right this moment. Ask me again tomorrow.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
During fall, winter and spring I'm often out at the Grand Theater, ushering for a live music event. Other Friday nights I'm staying in, cooking myself a meal and relaxing, hanging on this infernal computer, or just reading and zoning out. Other Fridays I might be out at a house party with friends, or out for a bite to eat.

Typical? No such thing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
