I love: to dance (I take some modern and African classes, but also just like to get down), to sing, travel, outdoor rec (hiking, biking, cross-country skiing), yoga, being active and playful generally, film, to cook and eat, hardy laughs, getting away for the weekend, or schlubbing around my apartment in my pj's.
I recognize a friend by s/he who laughs generously at my jokes. Sometimes run in a new agey or hippie circle, but am often amongst the more ironic participants. I'm very close to my mom and my sister, and a doting aunt to my niece and nephew who live locally.
I also love to travel, have lived internationally, and am most stimulated by developing countries. Destinations on my wish list include Brazil, Ireland and Scotland, West and South Africa, Seattle and Vancouver, and so on and so on.
I am not religious, but find myself looking towards spirituality (e.g. mindfulness) more in recent years. I also come from a family rich in tradition (Jewish, Greek, and "New Yorker"), which is a great source of pleasure and entertainment.
