My self-summary
Seeing someone.

My nose wrinkles when I laugh; I drive by Braille; I don't make very good coffee, nor can I spell...my dog likes me.
What I’m doing with my life
A few years ago I left a corporate executive role to do something entrepreneurial with a social impact mission. Though I am having a blast I am working a bit too hard. I am not convinced what we (my partners and I) are doing is changing the world but I like the possibility it could.
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't know... I have good skin:)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Sometimes I read just before I fall a sleep a poem from Harold Bloom's "The Best Poems of the English Language, from Chaucer through Robert Frost." I like Louise Bogan's poem "Men Loved Wholly Beyond Wisdom," though it is not my favorite, it is apropos for okcupid. Or maybe a bit more blue and certainly not in the Bloom book, the John Fuller's poem "Valentine."

I use to read mostly nonfiction business books for example Jim Collins, and Chip and Dan Heath or Kahneman. Lately, I am reading more fiction and some historical non-fiction such as "Boys in the Boat" or "Unbroken."

I enjoy the NY Times. Here is an appropriate to OK quote from a David Brooks editorial: "Data struggles with the social. Your brain is pretty bad at math (quick, what’s the square root of 437), but it’s excellent at social cognition. People are really good at mirroring each other’s emotional states, at detecting uncooperative behavior and at assigning value to things through emotion. Computer-driven data analysis, on the other hand, excels at measuring the quantity of social interactions but not the quality....Therefore, when making decisions about social relationships, it’s foolish to swap the amazing machine in your skull for the crude machine on your desk."
Six things I could never do without
It might be more interesting to ask what I discovered over my life I could live without.

I am glad we have hot water.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My children have left the nest for college and I think about them and their happiness and future. I miss them. They do call when they need money:)

I think about more adventures…possibly living overseas for a period, maybe NYC, more travel (though I have been to all seven continents.)

There is something wonderful about caring for another, trying to make their life easier, more enjoyable. Now that the kids are mostly gone I miss having an outlet for those impluses. I am perfectedly capable of being tired and preoccupied on occasion but life is best when I have the ease and energy to be focused on others. It would be heavenly to feel safe enough to be completely authentic and in love enough to be effortlessly generous.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have been a bit flip so in the privacy of the Internet (ha!), let me reveal what I really want. It would be heavenly to have a partner who enabled my dreams (I still have dreams to fulfill), helped me have fun (pulled me away from my responsibilities on occasion or made the responsibilities a bit lighter because they are shared) and helped me laugh (particularly at myself), stretched my thinking and just by being who they are encouraged me to grow (though not in dress size)...who adored me and wanted to make love to me in particular. And for whom all the reverse is true and reciprocated.
The two of us
