My self-summary
Here's a poem of mine, called


lush blanket
sleepy green invitation
cradle of infant trees
hopeful conifers sprouting
vying for the big time

careful: it's a forest out there

Moving to NH was my lifelong dream. I love to run, hike, bicycle, read, cook, knit, garden, laugh, write poetry, speak French, learn from people, tell the truth (even when it's hard), encourage people, dance (ballroom and 2 step especially), bird-watch, make love, help people, receive help, create, and be in the moment. I have a twelve year old child and, as a renter, am in between dogs. Allergic to cats.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a self-employed psychotherapist. I'm politically active, somewhat active at my synagogue, I adjudicate for community and professional theater in NH, volunteer for my daughter's school occasionally, trade garden labor for vegs and attend whatever cultural and community events I can.
I’m really good at
Imagining, writing, playing the question game, listening, forgiving, speaking French, making up goofy songs, doing crossword puzzles, getting distracted in my garden, connecting to people, ignoring dirty dishes. I am smart, funny, kind, inquisitive, poetic, active and discerning. I have my share of contradictions: I'm tender and sharp, gentle and assertive, accepting and impatient.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I really listen to them, I laugh a lot (when appropriate!), I'm smart, I'm friendly, I seem very confident.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I'm going to list authors rather than books. Louise Erdrich, Anne Tyler, Anne Lamott, Barbara Kingsolver, Alice Sebold, Yann Martel (Life of Pi; ok, I listed a book), John Hersey, Emma Donogue (everyone must go read Room right now, it is amazing), Ira Levin, Cynthia Kaplan, Rhoda Janzen, Anthony Doerr.

Movies: Frankie & Johhny, Dangerous Laisons, The Fabulous Baker Boys, Entre Nous, Le Diner des Cons, Young Frankenstein, A Thousand Acres, Ethan Frome, Diva, Subway, Million Dollar Baby, The Talented Mr Ripley, Good Will Hunting, Sophie's Choice, many Steve Martin movies.

Shows: Wicked, Young Frankenstein. TV? Don't have TV. Enduring favorites are Little House on the Prairie, Homicide, Mad About You, Upstairs Downstairs (yesteryear's Downton Abbey).

Music: Celtic, old country, folk, jazz, blues, some African, some classical.

Food: vegetarian, French, Indian, Thai, sushi (I eat fish), anything made with quality ingredients, a deft hand and a little imagination or, on the other hand, an appreciation of how good food simply cooked can be scrumptious.
The six things I could never do without
Things, not people: running shoes, hiking boots, a garden, books, a cast iron skillet, pen and paper (they count as one).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what it will take to get single-payer health care. What the right way to vote in November will be. A future with a more progressive government. How much my kid and I might fight when s/he is a teen. Adopting a child. If I'm due for an oil change.
On a typical Friday night I am
Lighting the Sabbath candles w/my child, sharing Sabbath dinner w/friends, at Scottish country dancing, or home just the two of us (me and said kid), reading and relaxing. Maybe going out, but I'm more likely to go out on a Saturday or a weeknight.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am not the master of my domain.
You should message me if
any of this resonates with you.
