What I’m doing with my life
Discovering all the wonderful things I can do in retirement.
I’m really good at
Being a good and caring friend. I'm also responsible, organized, and can pay attention to details. And more . . .
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm kind of a "what you see is what you get" person. People usually notice my warmth, out-going-ness and down-to-earthness. I also am easy to be with, like to have fun, and have a good sense of humor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love to read and am always in the middle of a book. Some recent favorites have been: Cutting for Stone, Water for Elephants, Still Alice, Shantarum, The Art of Racing in the Rain, The Room, Unbroken, Cry of the Kalahari, Eye of the Elephant. I go to Berkeley Rep, enjoy live music (jazz, classical, folk) and movies.
Six things I could never do without
My adult kids and grandson
Family and close friends
My health and fitness
My cats
My bike and hiking boots
My piano
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I recently commented to a long time friend, that "I have to get back in my groove," (after a summer of traveling and things). Her reply was, "Maybe there isn't a groove." I'm thinking about that.

Every day I marvel and appreciate how beautiful it is outside and lucky I am to live in the Bay Area. I am so grateful for the beauty and good things and people all around me. At the same time I think about how "give back" a little and to help address the many seriously troubling things that are going on.
On a typical Friday night I am
Similar to any other night. Sometimes I go to Berkeley Rep.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a large stack of unread New Yorker's.
You should message me if
If you are a man who is happy with himself, enjoys his life and cherishes his relationships with his friends and family, can be an intimate and lasting friend, lover, and companion.
The two of us
