My self-summary
I am a professor of English at a small university. I enjoy foreign films; classical, new age, world, oldies music. I am constantly reading novels; I write a bit. I enjoy cycling, especially long distant bike tours, playing with my dogs, riding my horse, and occasionally kayaking--I prefer lakes to serious rapids. I have also been known to scuba dive. I compete in a few triathlons a year. I like concerts, opera (sorry), plays.
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 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. This past summer 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.
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.
The six things I could never do without
Things that are very nice: my laptop, my dogs, my horse, books, music, movies, boats, 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
If you are not braggy. If you didn't write in your profile that you open doors for women. If you are NOT into traditional organized religion. If you DID NOT write you are looking for someone without baggage, or another words someone who has lived in a hermetic retreat for her whole life--wish you guys would lose that cliche and the door opening thing. And the following is nice, but not necessary: 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.
