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.
The 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.
