I am intelligent, compassionate, passionate, a fairly good listener, dedicated, an ok cook, an ok gardner.
I like to do art and play music. I like to watch intelligent, quirky movies and want a movie partner among other things.
I volunteer with cats at a local cat shelter and may start doing a bit of volunteering with refugees in the area.
I am retired, except for selling an occasional piece of art, giving harmonica lessons, or an occasional music gig.
I worked in insurance, publishing, and as a paid therapeutic musician (NOT music therapist) playing in nursing homes, etc. for about 12 years. I also played as a kid's musician for 2 years. I also self published a journal of artwork and writing by persons with severe mental illness that was included in the library of the American Visionary for 2 years.
