About me

Gender FEMALE

Occupation writer, singer, seeker
Location albany, california, United States
Introduction I used to be a solo performer, singer, writer, director, actor and college teacher. Now I have ALS so all that's left is writing. I'm curious. I have an amazing son named Mac who is 16 and wise beyond MY years and who tells me I'm good looking for someone who is dying and old which is worse than saying nothing but i still love it. I am playful and I love life more than I can express.
Interests yoga, reading, movies, theatre, music.
Favorite Movies Chinatown, Duck Soup, Shakespeare in Love, many many Woody Allen movies, Matewan, Mystery Men.
Favorite Music Too many types to mention. Jazz, Classical, Folk, Pop.
Favorite Books City of God by EL Doctorow is one of the most brilliant books I ever read. Recently enjoyed FREAKONOMICS and a book of Jonathan Franzen's essays. Just started The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien.
