My self-summary
I am a professor of English at a small university. I enjoy foreign films; classical, new age, world, oldies music. But before you stop reading--just attended Nitty Gritty this past weekend and looking forward to Journey. I am constantly reading novels; I write a bit. I enjoy cycling, especially long distant bike tours, playing with my dog, occasionally riding my horse, and occasionally kayaking--I prefer lakes to serious rapids. I have also been known to scuba dive. I like theate, and opera (sorry). I hate casinos.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I am immersed in the study of Eckhart Tolle books, THE POWER OF NOW, THE NEW EARTH. I study the Kabbahla, Krisnamurti, the Tao te Ching, Meister Eckhart. I am trying to live each moment, rather than being caught up in schemes for the future, or reliving the old glory days. I teach 9 months and take the summers off. The highlight of my life was one summer when I taught at a university in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
I’m really good at
I am pretty good at long distance cycling. I have one novel published by a small obscure press, and I have finished another one and am trying to get it published. What I do best is teaching writing and composition. I have a book of poetry coming out Jan. 2017.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes. It's been said.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
It is easier to list authors: Eckhart Tolle, John Updike, T.C. Boyle, Edna O'Brien, Thomas Mann, Bernard Haisch, Michio Kaku, Barrie Wilson, and others. I like to watch Youtube clips on spirituality. As for movies: foreign film, especially middle east directors; Music: New Age, classical, jazz, world, oldies. Food: ethnic, especially Asian. Also, fusion, Tai. Recently read Forks Over Knives and am pretty much vegan.
Six things I could never do without
Things that are very nice: my bike, my dog, my bike, books, music, my bike, movies, boats, my bike. And my bike.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why we are here on this planet. How to live in the Now. How to open my heart to everyone, people I both like and dislike. How to listen.
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading, listening to cds, answering email, Facebook, hanging out at Barnes and Noble, talking on the phone. Kind of fuddy duddy stuff.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am directionally challenged.
You should message me if
Nice: If you read Eckart Tolle and if you ride a bicycle. If you are vegan or vegetarian. Necessary: You are not totally into material things. You are a dog person at least in spirit. You are spiritual rather than religious. You are green. You are funny but you did not write on your profile that you are funny. You are affable, affectionate, accessible, liberal or middle of the road, loyal, and don't lie, cheat, and steal.
