My self-summary
I don't know how to summarize an entire person who has been on this planet for more than half a century. I guess see below.
What I’m doing with my life
Working, playing, reading, contemplating, taking walks, taking photos, playing with thoughts, ideas, concepts, numbers, equations; looking at the stars every chance I get (which in central NY weather is not often enough).

I love the arts, pretty much all of them. I move in and out of creative endeavors, I love art museums and arts/craft exhibits.

A favorite hobby which I have taken up again is photography. I've finally come into the 21st century with a digital SLR, and I love it.

I love learning new things, but my favorite thing to learn about is the universe (astronomy, cosmology, etc). I want to know how everything works, I want to know how it all fits together, I want to know our place in all of this grandeur.

I love spending time with my daughters. They are amazing people, very interesting, and they really keep me from getting or feeling old! They keep me up to date on the entire youth culture from music to fashion even while I share my own tastes with them. They are courteous enough to not laugh too loudly when they see what I looked like as a teen!

My daughters are two of my very favorite people; but the list has room for more people.
I’m really good at
I'm told that I'm quite good at processing emotions and experiences, as well as listening to others while they process. I'm emotionally fairly mature, intelligent, and intense. I feel things very deeply and believe this is a strength. I'm also intelligent, witty, perceptive, caring, sensitive, sensual, creative, artistic, spiritual, deep thinking, humorous, thoughtful, thoughtfully sarcastic, compassionate, dreamy, idealistic, playful, and spontaneous.
The first things people usually notice about me
eyes
sense of wonder
dreamy look
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love to read non-fiction, usually in the sciences or anything spiritual (though not necessarily religious). Lately I've found some Buddhist teachings resonate strongly with me. The fiction I've enjoyed has included science fiction, fantasy, and stuff my daughters like: Harry Potter, Wicked Lovely series.

I've also enjoyed Sue Monk Kidd and Paolo Coehlo.

I like comedies, romantic comedies, the occasional action flick, and Star Trek, Dr. Who, Fringe. Most recently watched Interstellar and am reading about the science behind it.

I'll try almost any food but easy on the onions. Finally tried calamari. Spicy is good. Ate lamb's brain once without knowing what it was. Once was more than enough.

I enjoy most types of music but especially classic rock and power ballads. Almost all musicals. The weird stuff my daughters play. I'm not hugely knowledgeable but I'm willing to listen to almost anything. And to learn more.
The six things I could never do without
books
my kids
stars (the ones in the sky)
love
water
good conversation
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time thinking about the universe in general, how we got here, the nature of life, beautiful things.
On a typical Friday night I am
usually at home but I'd rather be out dancing to almost any kind of music.
