My self-summary
Intelligent, intuitive, very analytical and clear, and creative.
What I’m doing with my life
Composer of art (classical) music. I'm actually getting played these days. I realize that there are many who rightfully cringe at the very mention of modern music. I'll just say it doesn't have to be that way, and to demonstrate that (and not from ego) I decided to publish here the URL of one short piece of mine the conductor put on youtube.

It was written a few years ago to fulfill a request for something similar to Barber's lovely Adagio - most of my music is somewhat more adventurous. I also do sales for a music related company I started with a friend to pay the mortgage.
I’m really good at
Teaching piano. Coming up with pretty tunes. (Yes, I believe art music should still have them.)
The first things people usually notice about me
I'd like to think people notice that I'm a clear thinker, have a developed sense of and passion for fairness and justice, clear ideas about beauty and aesthetics, and am a very good arguer.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Well, first Bach, then some others.
The six things I could never do without
Bach, coffee, my sweet dog (well, she's 17, so I'll probably have to do without her eventually), a few good friends. Speaking of my dog, this evening, some poor, presumably female wretch ratted me out - I had the temerity to post a picture of my sweet mutt solo. OKC seems to have a policy that allows you to have a picture of your feet on your page (yes, I have seen this), but not of your pet if you are not in it. I think it's reasonable to presume that the purpose of a picture in a profile is to give a reader more information about the subject of that profile. I ask you, dear reader, what, in your opinion, would tell you more about me - a picture of my sweet dog or one of my feet?

Update: Molly died January 30, 2015. She'll be in my heart forever.

Update 2: Got Maggie, a mixed breed pup. Quite a shock after tending to an ailing 17-year-old.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The function of art and whether it is fulfilling that function these days.

Just now, I've spent a very little time thinking about why OKC considers browsing invisibly something worth paying for. Why would I want to browse invisibly? Don't I want someone to know that I found her picture attractive enough to click on? And while I appreciate the thought of being listed as someone's favorite, I hope it's understood that as a non-paying member, I'm unable to see who has such refined taste in men.

Maybe someone can help me with this one. WHY do so many OKC female pseudonyms end in "taco", "thecat", "asaurus", and "inabox"?
On a typical Friday night I am
Sitting at my computer or piano trying to find notes.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Do you remember that episode of Seinfeld where they were trying to figure out who stole the raisins? Well....
You should message me if
You really don't like Shostakovich. (just kidding, sorta...)
