My self-summary
While I do my best to walk my talk, I admit to battling with a bit of a metaphorical lisp. That is, in spite of my best intentions to eat right, exercise regularly, think only good thoughts and never say a bad word about anybody, I still get tripped up. But I'm working at it. The biggest boulders I'm falling over are the ones staring me in the face: creative projects that I've yet to tackle. There is my list (long and growing longer daily) of books to write stewing on my back burner. My life-long desire to write my (semi) magnum opus which happens not to be a novel, but a musical. And of course, my unending effort to stop the clock and pretend that I'm not getting older, I'm getting better. Maybe I am. I am making progress in paring down -- at least in the books and CDs department. Just today, I let go of perhaps three or four books and a handful of CDs. Now, I have just about 25 more feet of bookshelves to go. (Not that I have any intention of releasing the majority of my books -- but there are probably a few more that could find another home.) I am a highly expressive introvert...which means I don't say much, but when I do it comes out with tremendous force and sometimes, passion. I spend a lot of my time alone (which is nice.) but/and spending some of that time with a fabulously suitable companion -- would be even nicer. What's "suitable" you ask? ..A warm/kind hands...loving eyes. I love to dance so someone who matches me in moving to the music would be the realization of a long-held dream. A movie/theater-goer? YES, please! If you cook, I'll be happy to clean up. If not, I'll clean up anyhow. I'm exceptionally intuitive, which can be disarming, or delightful, depending on your willingness/comfort in being seen/known. And yes, kissing is on the list. A connection in head/heart/guts/parts is a must. It's got to feel right -- and it's got to feeeeeeeeeel right. All that. Well, that's probably enough to get started. Looking forward to hearing from you. It would be lovely if you showed up tres pronto. Despite my best efforts to deny it, I am not getting any younger.
What I’m doing with my life
Realizing that The Time is NOW; and that carpe diem has never been more apt. I don't have a bucket list, but I'm thinking I might need to get a bucket.
I’m really good at
Cutting to the chase.
Telling the truth.
Acknowledging what's so.
Listening to what people say.
FInding where it hurts.
Helping to release the pain. (physical, more than emotional, but both are true).
The first things people usually notice about me
that I look like someone else they know.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Currently, I can't get enough of The Moth.
I would feel I hit the big time to win at a Moth event.
(I didn't win, but I did come in 3rd at my first (and not ready)
attempt. I'm going back in!!!!!!!)

I have bookshelves (filled) in every room of the house so
naming a favorite is impossible.
I tend toward non fiction, but I did complete
the steig larson trilogy as well as 4 /5 GOTs.

These days, most of my reading time
goes to the NY'er/Inc.
Favorite movies?
An equally difficult task...
recently, I loved Brooklyn and
Spotlight. Carol ... not so much.
I skipped Star Wars, but
would have gone if you wanted to see it.

on my all-time fave list:
B'fast at Tiffany's
Last Tango in Paris
The Philadelphia Story
Groundhog Day.
(a strange list, I realize)

Best thing I saw (not that recently)
at the theater: Love & Information
which I thought was brilllllliant!

I. Love. Musicals.
there, I've said it.

I am writing a musical.
(very slowly and w/desperate need
of a collaborator.)
(know anyone?)
Jazz (brazilian/cuban beats, esp.)
blues sax
Cole Porter
anything blues-y and or
with a great dance beat
Food...anything healthy/fresh
mostly veggie
east coast swing
or any kind of dancing
The six things I could never do without
authentic conversation.
live performance.
danceable music.
heart to heart hugs.
common sense.
ocean breezes
I spend a lot of time thinking about
where am I going to go when the bay area becomes
unlivable and/or G-d forbid!!!!!!!Trump becomes...
I can't even say it. {elected} Noooooooooooooo!
On a typical Friday night I am
see "what I am doing with my life."
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I strongly resist reading/writing profiles.

If your profile has a picture of you on a motorcycle,
if you are a devout christian, have a gun in your home,
or think any of the current republican contenders
would be a good choice to lead our country, I'm so
not interested.
You should message me if
write me and I'll tell you
