My self-summary
I'm a contemplative man, a devoted father, scientist, musician and occasional athlete. Yoga is meaningful to me, as is the pure delight of unexpected moments of convergence. I live rather simply, and find myself rich with laughter, gratitude, presence and intention.
What I’m doing with my life
These days, I am raising my daughter (half-time), working, practicing yoga, staying fit, making music. Being outside. Trying to bring a little light into the bits of the world I touch daily.
I’m really good at
Being dad, numerical analysis, noticing, intonation, pigeon pose, friendship, tinkering with bikes, overlooking the obvious, words, fixing stuff, topology, nuance, darning, limericks, chocolate-chip cookies, sneezing, wheelbuilding, reading maps, patience. There may be more, but I'm not good at comprehensive lists.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have deeply-thought-out, unconventional notions about life in the world. A quiet presence (usually). Some may notice that I am paying considerable attention.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
James Galvin's "The Meadow"; Quammen's "The Song of the Dodo"; Ridley's "The Red Queen". Once; Avatar; LOTR; Juno; Mystic River; 3:10 to Yuma. Brahms symphonies, Eva Cassidy, and most anything from the King's Singers and the Empire Brass; Alisdair Frasier, Barber's Adagio for Strings; Chanticleer; Ashokan Farewell; Dougie MacLean; Dvorak; Israel Kamakawiwoʻole; the Bach Cello Suites;Telemann Sonatas for Two Flutes; Lauridsen 'O Magnum Mysterium'; Loreena McKennit; the Mozart Clarinet Concerto; Resphigi 'Pines of Rome'; Shaun Colvin; Shostakovich; Biebl 'Ave Maria'; Clare de Lune. Here we are at food, and I'd rather keep going with music ... ah,well. Chicken tikka masala; good bread; heck, lots of stuff.
The six things I could never do without
My daughter's smile, always best when she pops out of a sleeping bag. Movement; stillness; breath. Connection. Gratitude.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My daugher. Connection in all its manifestations. Climate change, sustainability, population and economic growth, the manic insular craziness of modern American life, recycling, what the world will be like for my child and her children. What's the plural of "psoas"? Why is self-limitation so instinctive? What rhymes with "hanumanasana"? How do you lead a bunch of fourth-graders to have some sense of the atomic scale?
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading to my daughter. Playing Set. Cooking something with vegetables.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've been known to take naps.
You should message me if
You know yourself, you accept what you know, and you know there's always more.
