My self-summary
While I have plenty of curb appeal, you'll have to step inside the front door to experience my best qualities: kindness, intelligence, creativity and an ever present sense of humor. I'm an active person, and especially enjoy bicycling and walking/hiking. I love being the parent of one, provided my dog doesn't succeed in convincing you to count him too. I enjoy music, particularly folk and 60's rock, going to the theater and the movies, and always have a book in hand.
What I’m doing with my life
Parenting a middle school age child, working full-time at a professional job, trying to learn a new musical instrument, tending to my 100+ year old house, spending time with friends and family, and staying fit. And in my spare time...
I’m really good at
My job, being a good friend, writing, listening, doing the right thing.
The first things people usually notice about me
My blue eyes and that I look younger than my age.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Recent books: Unbroken, Cutting for Stone, The Book Thief, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, Somewhat recent movies: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, Trout Fishing in the Yemen, Transsiberian, Silver Linings Playbook; shows: Wicked, Camelot; music: 60's, Folk, Classical, some pop e.g., Adele; Food: all kinds of vegetarian, ethnic, When Pigs Fly bread, ice cream.
Six things I could never do without
1) My child, 2) my dog, 3) my sense of humor, 4) curiosity,
5) optimism, 6) some down time, and 7) bending the rules if it makes sense.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to be a better parent, whether the world will ever be a more peaceful place, my job, the last book I read, my next book, friends going through happy or difficult times, whether I'll learn to be a passable accordion player.
On a typical Friday night I am
Unwinding from a busy week with a video or good book.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You'll have to get to know me for this!
You should message me if
You're clear on your values, you're interested in getting to know me and think I'd like you; you're an intelligent and trustworthy person, you stay active, you're generally content, you have a serious side but definitely know how to have fun, you don't care if the dinner plates match.
The two of us
