My self-summary
I really want to meet people who are interested in things. It's generally less important what that thing(s) is/are and much more important to be passionate about your life.
What I’m doing with my life
Kicking it on Nantucket, teaching physics and chemistry to high schoolers. I'm a neophyte banjo player with something of a passion for songs about the ocean and life at sea so singing and strumming take up some time as well.
I’m really good at
Reading out loud...most recently Tropic of Cancer (14Feb13).
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not sure what's first but I've heard that I smile a lot : )

Fav. Books: To The Lighthouse, Confederacy of Dunces, The Scottish Chiefs, Don Quixote, Hamlet, Tropic of Cancer, Sword in the Stone, The Grapes of Wrath, The Wreck of the Zephyr.

B-52s, ...also funk, the Motown flavor and less the 80's flavor...also the Ramones, the Pogues, The Cowboy Junkies, Ashley MacIssac, Rage Against the Machine and Sibelius. (This list reflects pretty well what I've listened to recently but there are always fun odds and ends : )

In the words of U. Utah Phillips you are one of those who is living life with time and not with money.

You want to sing some songs.
