My self-summary
I've been a high school special ed teacher and film/sound effects editor. Now retired, I continue to be dedicated to kids feeling a little less anxious about their places in the world. I'm passionate about learning, peace in the world, and trying to embrace life on its terms rather than mine. I love to sail my small boat and to flail away at golf balls at a near by course.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm retired and enjoying it.
I’m really good at
I'm certainly skilled at listening, making decisions, crosswords, ping-pong, photography, building websites, and sailing small boats.
The first things people usually notice about me
My grin and my sense of humor can captivate.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I've been a Hollywood film/sound editor and have developed an addiction for films of all sorts. A few favorites that I can see again and again are: "Treasure of Sierra Madre", "Midnight Cowboy", "Amadeus", and "Return of Martin Guerre". Recent favorite reads include: "Endurance," "Cold Mountain," and "Cutting for Stone."
The six things I could never do without
friends, family, reading, the sea, flora and fauna, and last but not least, sex.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Philosophy, politics and economics
On a typical Friday night I am
I would be cooking and watching Public Television.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Spending considerable time at Venice Beach when it went nude in 1974.
You should message me if
I'm looking for someone with a keen sense of her place in the world and a desire to embrace life and other people-- a kind, passionate, generous spirit. I think that an off beat sense of humor is attractive, along with the where-with-all to be cerebral and analytical at one moment and to enjoy things emotional, physical and athletic the next.
