My self-summary
As a 15-year breast cancer survivor, I don't sweat the little things. Life is precious. I like to spend time with people that are happy, and living their values. I'm at ease when it comes to expressing my thoughts and feelings.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently: wearing out the backspace and delete keys while attempting to write something original and witty, while maintaining a sense of mystery, allure and intrigue.
I’m really good at
1. Apparently, platonically befriending men that I meet on internet dating web sites.

2. Listening to and analyzing/synthesizing information.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've never asked, but probably my friendliness.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Some favorite authors: E.O. Wilson, Pablo Neruda, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Isabel Allende, Jonathan Kozol, Cormac McCarthy, Maya Angelou, Andrew Solomon, Michael Pollan, Howard Gardner, Mark Kurlansky, Jared Diamond, Jane Goodall, Mario Vargas Llosa.

Some favorite music: Santana, Putamayo world music collections, Cake, Calexico, Ska in general, Neko Case, The Pogues, Red Hot Chili Peppers, the blues, Otis Redding, Lucinda Williams, that guy who sings "Brick House" , etc., etc. - love all music.

Food: not a big foodie, ironically, as I work in the field of social justice with a focus on food justice.

Shows: don't watch a lot of TV but I like Big Bang Theory, Anderson Cooper, Stephen Colbert, Jon Stewart and Bill Maher.
Six things I could never do without
1. My great relationship with my daughter
2. My friendships with my sisters, sisters-in-law and ex-sisters-in-law.
3. My fabulous brothers
4. Dark chocolate
5. Facebook, so I can "like" everything that my 14 nieces and nephews do: their accomplishments, bands and musings.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what a clever answer to this question would be.

Also, I'm a true optimist and believe we all have the opportunity to make the world a better place every day, and I think about my contribution toward making that happen.
On a typical Friday night I am
watching Bill Maher...or somewhere watching live music with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
What do you really want to life is kind of an open book. No deep dark secrets, really.
You should message me if
you are single, open, funny, well-grounded, mature and kind.
The two of us
