My self-summary
Somehow, the idea of a summary seems pretty daunting. And I'm a believer that you have to meet and talk to the person. But here's a few things. I try to be at least a little bit different. I like thinking about the way things look. Family is very important to me. Cooking is something I enjoy, even if the results are mixed. So is running. And basketball. And writing. I do my best to stay up on the latest music and literature. I listen to podcasts and audiobooks when I'm walking to work and driving in the car, and sometimes when I'm running. I love traveling, and I've taken some great trips. But it would be amazing to get to India, Iceland, Turkey, Egypt, and somewhere in southern Africa.

Six things I could never do without
Most of the things that are important to me relate to people? Or maybe they don't count, I guess they aren't things. I like to think I could do without most things. Other than those books and music and podcasts and electronic gadgets. and maybe live music? Although I seem to be doing without that lately.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what came before, what comes next. The perfect paint color. Whether a period should be followed by one space or two.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out to dinner with friends. Or not.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I spend a lot of time thinking about what came before and what comes next.
