I'm in charge of the Emeritus Professors luncheons that are twice a year at MIT. Sherry Turkle spoke today about her latest book "Reclaiming Conversation" (the paperback version is out today) and it was so interesting. She talked about how we turn relationships into transactions and how we need the capability to be alone (I've got that down) to have the capability to be with people. I really enjoyed her talk and am ordering her book today. #workperk #theretiredprofessorsarereallyinteresting
I was born and raised in Van Nuys, California. I moved to Boston sight-unseen and have loved living in New England since that day when I said, "this apartment is OLD". My hobbies are antiquing, reading books and magazines (bring back Blueprint and Domino please), sewing, quilting, sightseeing, watching movies, and photography. I love the color red and have a retro red refrigerator (and kitchen aid mixer and ice cream maker and toaster and...) to prove it! I live in a converted high school and love decorating my loft condo (w/ 18 foot ceilings) that was formerly the auditorium. I have 3 brothers, 11 nieces and nephews, and a bus fleet of friends.
