My self-summary
More feminine than girly. More curious than cool (as in cooled to life).

Full-bodied personality.

One of my favorite compliments was when a friend told me I was like a character out of a Fellini.
What I’m doing with my life
Writing (nonfiction -- about the arts, the city, sports, & most things in-between).

Lawyering (Amazingly, I have found a decent law job with civilized hours, very rare).
The first things people usually notice about me
Tall & Skinny. A new friend remarked that she was so pleased to realize that I was not stuck up b/c, she said, "You are all up."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A recent trip to Montreal got me rereading some Canadian classics by Mordecai Richler and Hugh MacLennan. I'd forgotten how amazing these guys are. Why isn't Richler more popular here, I never understood that.

I have a knack for arriving in town a day after one of my favorite musicians/bands have just played it (or having to leave a day before). Last year it was Nick Cave in St. Petersburg, L. Cohen in Berlin and a few weeks ago I went up to Montreal just after Arcade Fire played and of course while I was up there they played down here. I really need to figure this out.

Loooved Sopranos, Rome, Battlestar Galactica, Mad Men, Dexter, Breaking Bad, Friday Night Lights...was ridiculously addicted to The Shield. (Also, there is life after Breaking Bad, Saul is so so good, though just as relentless and even more heartbreaking).

Currently addicted to the Father John Misty Pandora channel (and to him? He is great).

(Some more lists, people like lists. Some favorite movies: Red, The Godfather I&II, The Crying Game, Running On Empty, The Piano, The Lives of Others, The 40 Year Old Virgin, Waltz With Bashir, Silence of the Lambs, Annie Hall, Manhattan, Crimes & Misdemenors, etc. ; Books: almost all Graham Greene, Joan Didion, Willa Cather, Geoff Dyer, Larry McMurtry, Julian Barnes, Wolf Hall, Gilead, Caro's LBJ Books, etc.).

Total coffee addict. How to write about the importance of good food without understating it (or being totally hyperbolic)...

Relatively recent convert to yoga and running. Not quite sure how I did life without them.

Also a not so closeted, but maybe somewhat camouflaged, jock -- love my sports (to watch and to play).
Six things I could never do without
1. Coffee & Earl Grey
2. New York Times Crossword
3. Rangers Hockey/Mets Baseball
4. Too many forms of culture and ways to take them in -- overwhelm me, please! I can rise to the challenge.
5. BAM & Berlyn -- RIP Berlyn, June 2017.
6. My sports superstitions -- they work! (Might mean I can never go to another Rangers game, they've only lost every time I've gone this season, terrible)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Way too many things, it's pretty busy in there!
On a typical Friday night I am
If it's baseball season, very possibly watching a game. It's a nice way to do Friday, and it ends early, so there is always time for more Friday after.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a Mets fan.
You should message me if
If you are a smart boy but don't take yourself too seriously.

(No curmudgeons please! I tend to gravitate towards folks -- friends and more than friends -- who are, on balance, more excited about life than annoyed with it).

Also, pretty close to my family, and almost always get along best with those who are similarly close to theirs. It's not a rule or requirement, but just seems to work out that way -- the warmth and comfort, and the desire to always be around that maybe.
The two of us
