My self-summary
I'm not one to write a lot about myself; I'd rather meet in person and talk.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm almost retired but I will never stop teaching, so I'm developing new courses, learning Italian, and learning to live again after a hurtful divorce.
I’m really good at
Cooking, gardening, teaching literature, taking care of my children, organizing and following through on things I care about, stimulating conversation over a glass of wine.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair. It's silver; has been since I was 20. My daughter says it's my smile. They notice what book I'm reading. I always carry a book with me and will pull it out at odd places. People always seem to notice my shoes as well.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I teach literature; I've read everything. ;-)
Six things I could never do without
My children. They're all grown, but I love them. PBS. A library nearby. A glass of cold Chardonnay. A beach near enough to drive to.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to live a meaningful and productive life. How to make a meaningful contribution in whatever I do next, as I transition out of a long teaching career.
On a typical Friday night I am
I might go to a play or a movie. But some days I'm tired from working all week, so I have a glass of wine and watch British dramas on PBS.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I'm terrified of old age and what it's going to bring.
You should message me if
The things I have said interest you.
The two of us
