My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Fresh off the boat New Yorker. Sort of. If Boston counts as a foreign country. And if Mazda 3 counts as a steamer ship. And no, I did not throw off the family tefillin into the harbor. I donated it to the Women of the Wall.

On a more serious note, I am a survivor of several waspy intellectual puppy mills. Now I'm equally equipped to deconstruct Derrida and roll a joint. I mostly like nerdy stuff: books, art, long wee hours talks on transcendence of the ironic currency in the postmodern cultural space. When It all gets to be too much, I escape into the wild. Take long silent hikes, befriend mountain folk and bake pie. Go figure!

For the introspective self-disclosure part: I am an extract from the Old Country with a somewhat tangled geographic trajectory. I've lived most of my life in US (alternating between the Northeast and CA) with a brief stunt in Israel. So, I left my heart in.... many places but Israel got the better of it.

Being Jewish... is a messy, complicated subject but one that is bound to come up early on. Partly because I chose to work for Jewish nonprofits, but mostly because, when not "hair-raising" exasperating, my people are so damn entertaining.

As I am settling in this jolly oyster of a city, I would like to meet kindred spirits, sharing in my precarious poise between wanderlust and tenacity. I am ultimately looking to build a life with someone based on shared values rather than interests. So don't be discouraged if I snooze during your Trekkie references. In turn, I won't expect you to recite Martin Buber as pillow talk. So long as we share graphic visions of sailing the Mediterranean and solving the Jewish question.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Negotiations. Clarifications. Laughing at myself.. and you (but just a little). Putting my foot in my mouth. Doing 20 things at once. Leading on a dance floor. And intuiting deep, highly personal and often embarrassing thoughts.

how to stop thinking so much. It takes real effort to quiet the mind.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Lighting candles, having a dinner with friends, plotting to transcend material reality, and honoring the sanctity of creation.
