My self-summary
Late Fragment

And did you get what you wanted from this life, even so?
I did.
And what did you want?
To call myself beloved,
to feel myself
beloved on the earth.

-Raymond Carver

I am whimsical, existential, and compassionate.
What I’m doing with my life
Pondering my priorities.
Keeping up with my son, now a young adult.
Loving fiercely.
Trying to do what matters, with purpose, and letting go of what doesn't matter.
Learning, and reading.
Travelling and thinking about travel.
Finding perfection in imperfect moments.
Practicing compassion.
Living wholeheartedly.
I’m really good at
organizing other people, spelling, empathy, being practical, being impractical, planning journeys, speaking in a variety of accents, having moments of occasional silliness, editing, and kissing (so they say).
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm short, with tall shoes.
I'm youthful in appearance and personality.

I look a little like Jodie Foster.

Six things I could never do without
My child
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Home improvement projects. Travel plans. How to be a blue dot in a red state. Whether to move or stay. Survival in Trumpland, and trying to understand the people who voted for him.
On a typical Friday night I am
staying at home, or out to dinner with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not photogenic.
You should message me if
You have emotional and intellectual depth, and the ability to be open and honest.

You have a curious mind and the wonder of a child, but with wisdom beyond your years.
The two of us
