What do I like to do for fun? Seeing a good movie followed by dinner at an ethnic restaurant. Discussing issues and current events with friends at home or in a bistro/coffeehouse/bar. Nature walks in the Botanical Gardens or the Morton Arboretum. Cooking together while sharing a bottle of wine. Reading good fiction. Getting my toes into a warm sandy beach.
I treasure my friends and my family - they make the life truly worth living. I believe in not treating people in a way I wish not to be treated myself (Golden Rule). And finally, I try to remember the old philosophical adage: "If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am only for myself, what am I? And if not now, when?"
