My self-summary
I must be a mermaid. I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living. ~Anais Nin

I'm playful, loving, creative, and I have a quick wit. If given my druthers, I'll choose adventure over tranquility (unfurl the sails!), sail to ports, rafting waves, but now relaxation has a valued place in my life. Everything for me is better with people I love.


I've dodged twisters in Oklahoma, pursued acting in California, conducted brain mapping research in North Carolina, resigned a tenured professorship for love and, here in Boston, I've taught neurology tutorials to medical students for 12 years. Now I've retired from from academia to to expand myself... performing arts, volunteering in the community, and I hope to travel. I'd like to visit countries very unlike the US, and to understand other cultures.


My friends are unique and I delight in their variety... In you, my partner, I seek a man who is non religious and liberal in politics, as it will be comfortable for us, relaxing at the end of the day, to see the world in similar ways. You care for people, both those you know and those you don't know, and you love animals. What will we do? Let's head for the sunlight. I hope you like to travel; there's so much I haven't seen. When we're at home, we'll enjoy doing whatever... doing dishes, the dinner party over and everyone gone. The two of us, laughing at what people said. Just being together....
The first things people usually notice about me
Lights flicker when I walk into the room.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
By far, my favorite places to be are on or in any ocean. Sailing, canoeing, kayaking, sitting on the pier. I wade in the tide, skirt drenched, shoes thrown and, with any luck, my purse is with my shoes.

A few favorites are all the Pinker books, Ella Fitzgerald, NPR, spicy Indian and Thai, Blade Runner, Seinfeld, To Kill a Mockingbird, Yo Yo Ma, Pink Floyd, The Moth, BSO, MFA, all theater, A Prayer for Owen Meany, Jon Stewart, and hot coffee in the morning.
The six things I could never do without
~ Passion for life and ideas, not things
~ Love and support
~ Spontaneous humor, laughter
~ Empathy and kindness
~ Logic and understanding
~ Optimism and resilience
I spend a lot of time thinking about
why people do what they do and say what they say.
On a typical Friday night I am
stealing hubcaps.
