My self-summary
Self-employed executive coach and career counselor, eager to share the fun, serious, beautiful, humorous, ironic and (sometimes, inevitably) troublesome "downer," aspects of life with another who cherishes much of the same plus having her own persona that makes her special and over time helps create great chemistry between us. Myers-Briggs INTJ - on the cusp Introvert-wise so I enjoy social settings and quiet times as well, and possess a curious roaming between Sensing and Intuition - able to appreciate the "here & now" as well as the "there & then." Divorced, enjoying the accomplishments of two talented grown daughters. MBA in finance. Participant in the Guinness record for number of trombonists assembled to play "76 Trombones," at Washington Nationals stadium (June 2012).
What I’m doing with my life
I think some pretty good things - very aware that there are so many wonderful things to learn, to do, to see. Feel that I am well-grounded, with integrity, yet incomplete without a lady with whom to share life.
I’m really good at
> Conversation - I think I'm a good listener
> Trustworthy
> Leading job search and management workshops
> Writing
> Making the best fried corn meal mush you ever tasted
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not sure -- let's do an experiment: We go down to Connecticut Ave. and K Street inn Washington, I stand there, you ask passers-by what they notice about me. Then we switch, you get noticed and I take notes. Discussion follows.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Generally tend to like good fiction, history, biography, books on human behavior, organizational management and adult development. Belong to a book group. Read the Economist, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post. Love musical theatre and other live entertainment, occasional movies, watch very little TV. Music tastes run from Count Basie, Sinatra, Bette Midler, etc. to Broadway to classical/opera to bluegrass/Dixieland. Love the outdoors, bicycling, do occasional flyfishing and camping. Tend to be fairly main-stream about food but I do try to be flexible and nudge outside of my comfort zone.
Six things I could never do without
Learning and enjoyment through reading, conversation, variety and experiences.
Sense of humor/playfulness.
A sense of usefulness, contributing to the lives of others of all ages.
Music and SiriusXM satellite radio.
Occasional Sunday NYT crossword puzzle.
Feelings of hope and expectation about the future.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to make the best use of my life in relation to others; perceiving meaning and fulfillment.
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing a range of things depending on the circumstances, from reading, out for dinner, movie, planning a Sunday School lesson, writing an occasional poem, doing a crossword puzzle.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Heavens, I don't know! I think I might've already gone too far with my answers to the never-ending OKCupid questions. But frankly, those questions/answers certainly do seem to help toward understanding what makes each of us "tick," don't they even though subject to elaboration or qualification?
You should message me if
My profile strikes some interest because of a comfortable blend of similarities and differences, and you'd like to engage in some honest getting-acquainted.
The two of us
