My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
After several years jumping from one country to the next, I'm back in Chicago teaching at my alma mater. I'm also supposed to be writing a book about ancient gods, but sometimes things get in the way.

I have a new car and a new tent. I'm looking for someone to go on road trips with me, and maybe do some camping. Or antiquing.

I received a pretty hefty Jewish education as a kid. If I ever have kids of my own, I'd like to raise them Jewish and then introduce them to Socrates at their Bar or Bat Mitzvah.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently, I'm teaching myself King Lear.
What should I be doing? Eating kreplech?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

Some recent reads and perennial favorites: The Iliad, Gilead, The Art of Simple Food, Herodotus' History, A Room of One's Own, Angels in America, Lincoln's Second Inaugural, Labyrinths, The Venture of Islam, Art and Objecthood, A Tale of Love and Darkness, The Conquest of Mexico, The Tempest, Negara, The Big Sleep, Sabbatai Sevi: The Mystical Messiah, The Ramayana, Nichomachean Ethics, The Dialogic Imagination, Moby-Dick, Disgrace, and Tmol Shilshom. I re-read The Great Gatsby every time I am called for jury duty.

Movies I grew up on include The Great Muppet Caper (age 4), Blazing Saddles (daily from age 6 to 10), Manhattan (age 16 to 19), Amadeus and Metropolitan (19-21). After college I moved to Paris to study philosophy at the Sorbonne but dropped out after a semester and just started watching two or three old movies a day in tiny cinemas---it was a far better education. Generationally, I identify with Clueless rather than Fast Times or Mean Girls.

Top Chef and The West Wing allow me to imagine two career paths I didn't take. And then there's Breaking Bad.

I enjoy hearing talented musicians playing quality music, regardless the genre. If it's being played in a small, intimate venue, so much the better. An arbitrary list : Bach, Mozart/Da Ponte, Erik Satie, Fats Waller, Thelonious Monk, Lightnin' Hopkins', Jacques Brel, Enrico Macias, Chava Alberstein, Guns n Roses, Belle & Sebastian, Daniel Kahn, The Baby Soda Jazz Band.

I like noodles and dumplings in all forms and am excited to be living again where there are taquerias. I've also recently discovered a place in the south suburbs that makes knafe just like in Ramallah---it's worth the drive.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Books & Company, Gotham Bookmart, Seminary Co-Op, Librairie Vrin, St. Marks Bookshop, Kitchen Arts & Letters
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to live a flourishing human life.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've seen every episode of Gossip Girl. And I enjoyed them.

You don't mind that I know nothing about pop music after 1992.
