My description:

Tonight is a Tuesday, and so let me describe my past week in an effort to describe myself, as perhaps our actions speak more honestly than our words. Because the rain let up here in Oregon, I worked outside cleaning up winter debris and because I like to exercise, I went to several classes at the gym. Frankly, I'd often rather be on my bike than in the gym, but not in this weather. I picked up one of my grandchildren (I have two, ages 15 and 12) and took her and some friends to lunch because I want to be part of their village. I met my grandson at the YMCA and then walked his dog for the fun of it. Friends and I gathered for food and board games and lots of belly laughs. As a retired teacher, I substitute at my old high school from time to time, so I spent one day doing that -- enjoying discussing the life of Indian activist Zitkala-Sa in one class and Mandela in another.

I spent an hour getting physical therapy for a pulled calf muscle. Not romantic, but there it is -- pulled but improving.

One afternoon when the rain stopped, my two best friends and I walked their dog along the river through a filbert orchard, just us and the dog weaving our way between the shadowed lines of trees. Later, we ate a fabulous meal of black eyed peas with collards over brown rice plus salad and goat cheese. I came home to work on the small book I'm writing, tentatively titled "Why Be Vegetarian? Living with Compassion." A publishing company in India wants to publish such a book from a Westerner's perspective, and things are going well with it so far. This is a service project for me -- I won't get paid, and the book will sell at cost (probably about $2).

I watched my current favorite t.v. show, Nashville, on line while I was cooking and later, ironing (Yep, I know there are only about 6 people left in America who iron) and read more of Rain: A Natural and Cultural History. I'm usually reading 2 or 3 books at a time, depending on my mood.

Every morning, I begin with meditation. That's central.

 


Seeking:

Ideally, you also have spent some this week in meditation and exercise. Perhaps you like music or the theater. I sometimes enjoy watching basketball and occasionally football,  but I'm not interested in someone who is glued to the sports channel.  You're sociable, a good conversationalist, and working to  become a better human being. Honesty is an essential part of who you are. If you have practical skills, wonderful. (I don't, but I am good with design). If you like to travel, great. I speak decent Spanish and like to travel and use it. You may be interested in politics, but, please, don't reply if you're passionate about them. Perhaps you have a family you love and would like to share or a favorite hike you want us to take. Maybe you're interested in exploring new things together like kayaking. Hopefully, it'd be fun to get to know one another.
