I am a funny, gregarious, story-filled extrovert whose life burst into full technicolor and drama right out of the gate (thank you, Soviet Union).
Until recently, I shaped my life around constant excitement and adventure, a far-flung trip or dinner party always on the horizon. Of late, though, I find myself building a more balanced life - my bustling weekdays evened out by quieter, more introspective weekends. I feel ever more inclined to retreat into nature (whether upstate or in my hammock in Fort Greene park), to seek deeper conversations in smaller groups, and to create meditative moments for silent self-reflection. Wondering if anyone else is feeling me here?
