My self-summary
After working as an environmental scientist for 33 years, I have as they say, stopped seeking the truth and and am now just looking for a good fantasy. Seriously, with lots of time to do as I please, I am now taking advantage of all the Bay Area has to offer - museums, nature, libraries, outdoor activities, and travel.
What I’m doing with my life
Now that I am mostly retired, I have time to do all those things the doctors recommend to be healthy. For example, exercising 5 days per week, no smoking, light drinking, eating lots of fruits and vegetables daily (I use the Vitamix Blender), and getting 8 hours of sleep. For fun, I am traveling more. I usually travel to Europe once per year because I like their relaxed life style. Closer to home, I am skiing and biking more. Although I had hoped to take enrichment classes, I find they interfere with travel, so that isn't working out so well. I also like to read (mostly novels).
I’m really good at
Planning activities or trips, whether just for myself or a large group.
The first things people usually notice about me
Gosh, I don't know except the obvious - that I'm a fit male of average height. I'll have to get some input on this one.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite books tend to be either historical novels or mysteries. My favorite movie to date is "Dirty Dancing" because it is an uplifting Cinderella story, and unlike other Hollywood movies, it shows how much work it takes to get good at something (dancing in this case). My favorite music is classical, light jazz, movie themes, and easy listening music. As for food, I am an omnivore.
Six things I could never do without
Friends, physical activities, books, fresh air and sunshine, life-long learning, travel.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My next trip, or the next hiking/biking event I will be leading.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either at a TGIF or resting up for weekend activities while watching Mystery Theater on PBS, or International Mystery on MHz.
You should message me if
If you are an active person who likes hiking, biking, snow sports; if your idea of interesting travel is hiking/biking in Europe while
staying in small town pensions; if you have an interest in ballroom dancing; and if you read books.
