I often spend weekend afternoons exploring, reading, or going to Bookshop Santa Cruz and browsing. Sometimes I hang out with my son (and his son) or my ex and sometimes I hang out with a young lady who is my best friend. And I hate going to the gym, at least 3 times a week (I reward myself by going to the steam room). I like listening to all sorts of music and I like to watch people dance-I am too shy to dance myself because I walk with a limp (if you have ever watched HOUSE MD on TV, I limp less than Dr. House).
I am an agent of Karma (an attorney), ---I represent a few clients who have been hurt in lawsuits against the person/people who hurt them. I only work part time because life is short.
My Mom and Dad live in rural Washington (State). They are both 87 and live on their own on a little island in Puget Sound. I used to go visit them once or twice a year. Then my Dad had a fall, so now I go up there to help out every 6 weeks to two months. Then I come back so I can be here for my son. my grandson and my ex. I guess you could say that family is important to me.
4/29/15 note. Since the above was written my Mom passed away and I brought my Dad down here to live in Scotts Valley. He just broke his pelvis the day after his 90th birthday. I have no business posting here because most of my time is consumed taking care of Dad.
And I worry that people are put off because I walk with a limp.

Music and Food
I have eclectic tastes in music and food; my favorite food in the moment depends on the mood I am in and who I am with.
The people I am close to;
walking and hiking
(you could say they are not "things", but I took the question in a general sense);
the redwoods and the ocean;
my computer (hooked up to the internet) and my books.
But is that six?....hmmmm....I guess I'll add:
romantic love and passionate sex.
Duhhh....I guess I need to watch out for making statements of the blindingly obvious?
you want to tell me your story or
you want to hear more of my story
But see note above. Right now taking care of Dad will slow any response I make.
