I had a classical education, when such a thing was more the norm. But for all that, I haven't followed a "normal" path. I went to college when I was 21, started out majoring in pipe organ, and switched to linguistics, but in the end took more Art History courses than anything else. And what do you do with that? Blaze your own trail!
It turns out the most important thing to me was finding a spiritual path. I found one that fits me well half my lifetime ago and have been following it ever since. As the Beatles said so succinctly, "Love is all there is." My focus in life is living that reality. I sing to reveal the love in my heart. I teach piano to help others access the love composers have written into their music. I work in a finance office to safeguard and celebrate the abundance offered us by the universe. I babysit to enjoy the company of young, pure souls, and hopefully to influence them to reach for the joyful in life.
And now I'd like someone to love, to play with, to share my enjoyment of life with. I love to travel, and would love to have company as I explore. It's much more fun to have new experiences together. The same goes for going to concerts, the ballet, museums, and even movies. My experience is made even better by your enjoyment.
I love the movies, and don't go very often. Some favorites: Indiana Jones, Harry Potter, independent films, pretty much anything English.
Music? Bach, Beethoven, and the Beatles (my 3 Bs. Nothing against Brahms, but JPG and R nudged him out).
On television it's Jon Stewart, NCIS, Mythbusters, Downton Abbey, Elementary, English mysteries.
Food: avocados, asparagus, and artichokes, simple dishes where the flavor of the food isn't disguised by herbs and spices.
