My self-summary
I grew up in what I consider to be a fairly unconventional household, especially for the times. My father was a psychiatrist, my mother, a medical technologist. My mother was into all art forms and insisted we obtain a well rounded education by taking piano, another musical instrument, ballet, Junior Great Books. etc. My poor little sister was a jock and loved baseball. Needless to say, she did not look comfortable in a tutu! However, thanks to my mom, we all have an appreciation for the "finer", (tongue in cheek), things in life.

My parents gave elaborate dinner/bridge parties. My mom would wear bizarre looking caftans, make odd ,exotic dishes, (for the times), and everyone would get sloshed... (think Madmen).
We would hide on the stairs and peek. I have heard rumors that many bounderies were crossed at those parties. My father was also into acting, and I think the Players Guild had the wildest parties of all.

Like most families, we had our share of dysfunction...(think of the psychiatrist in Running With Scissors). But my parents were also quirky, silly, goofy and funny. This is where my siblings and I learned to utilize humor as a way of coping w/ even the most painful experiences in life. We still have a blast when we're all together.

Finding humor in my everyday experiences continues to be an important aspect of my professional as well as my personal life.
It also helps ameliorate and temper my more serious, intense, analytical and contemplative side. I think some of these personality traits are genetic, some the result of being the daughter of a psychiatrist and some from the particular brand of dysfunctional mayhem I endured during my childhood!
What I’m doing with my life
Working as a self employed professional, yoga, spinning, biking, swimming, enjoying movies, reading, relaxing at my cottage up north, antiquing, flea marketing, watching, supporting and at times standing by fretting as my children struggle to get their sea legs for their journey into adulthood!
I’m really good at
Talking, listening, being analytical, self reflecting, getting goofy.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm friendly. I smile and laugh easily. I'm genuinely interested in listening to what people have to say. I am nonjudgemental.
Some people consider my fashion sense unconventional. I have been described as "ex-hippie like", or bohemian. I find these characterizations to be grossly exaggerated, however, I guess more conservative people may perceive me that way.
I'm guessing that more bohemian or "ex-hippie like" people might see ME as conservative looking! I am definitely liberal in my thinking.

Anything by David Sedaris, several books by Augusten Burroughs, Jane Austen, Henry James, Margaret Atwood, Kathryn Harrison.
Pans Labyrinth, Madmen, Dexter, Six Feet Under.

Conversation, exercise, music, work, my antiques and precious junk finds, my children.
