My self-summary
I've been called funny, generous, creative, honest, and flexible. I laugh at myself regularly, read too much, and am not afraid to take a risk. I love books, that zippy click that happens when synthesizing new ideas with old, exploring life and ideas with friends. I like to be of use, working hard or helping others. and I get rejuvenated from noticing beauty. I believe community is important and try to build and facilitate it when and where I can.
I hope you, like me, have an active mind and body, know how to lead or follow, and find living without the arts unthinkable! ( ok, important then!) we both are thoughtful, care about the planet, have range, are comfortable with sharing feelings,and are playful. ( and , as you may have noticed, I love words.. tho can be quiet in person! )
I love to travel, from regular theatre jaunts to NYC to off the beaten path. St Petersburg, China, Curacao, or Morocco.
What I’m doing with my life
I am mostly retired, tho I am a landlord and my summer time work as an airbnb host is very fun and keeps me busy. I usually have a creative project going. I stay active and like to switch it up, yoga, bootie camp.Thanks to my young dog Cleopatra, I walk and enjoy the outdoors daily. I am going to India this winter to help homeless folks for a few weeks. I help with teen feed, a homeless youth project here.
I’m really good at
I'm GAME! I am a natural problem solver with a good sense of design. ( being very visual helps) I think systemically out of the box, and learn quickly. I am good at helping others, continuing to grow and learn. I am a gardener and designer by avocation, and I can lay a patio, upholster a couch, paint a wall. I like a project! I like salvaging things and re-purposing them, and can find a way to do most things I'd like to do.
The first things people usually notice about me

fleet foxes, Jamie Liddel, Visqueen , Adele, Messian, and Lucinda Williams, to Bill Frissel and Elvis Costello.
Six things I could never do without
my senses, the folks I love , books ,music ,dogs ,beauty..
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to help others, balance, appreciating the beauty around us.
On a typical Friday night I am
seeing friends, at dinner or w/music, on a wander w/ the dog outside somewhere, or home reading a book.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You should message me if
You'd like to go for a long walk with a dog, hear some new music, share some stories. ..maybe ya just felt kindred somehow??!!
