My self-summary
I'm a high energy, high consumer of life: i.e I have many interests and try to pursue them, which often leaves me over-scheduled. I am passionate about my family and friends, thoughtful discussion and fine films, hiking and theater, the outdoors and good ice-cream.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm mostly retired, though I do occasional consulting and work one day a week volunteering at the Veteran's Center with combat vets who have PTSD and their families. I hike, I tap dance, I spend time with my grand-children. I travel, belong to a variety of interest groups (books, film, social issues, food) and I get up each morning rather delighted.
I’m really good at
Raising children, boundless energy, discussing complex matters, hiking, staying in touch, maintaining an intellectual curiosity, having fun, eating good food, and getting lost.
The first things people usually notice about me
My energy, my smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Latest favorite book is The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt, latest favorite film is Two Lives and Rudderless; favorite show is The Scottsboro Boys, music is still Ella Fitzgerald (plus lots more), and food: good ice-cream, of course.
Six things I could never do without
If this means what I want most in my life, it's good health, good friends, good discussion, good exercise, my fabulous children and grand-children. A great romantic partner would put the icing on the cake.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Social issues and how to deal with them; people I care about.
On a typical Friday night I am
There is no typical Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm more vulnerable than I appear.
