Here's a word I made up that describes me pretty well: Sillious. One who takes the drive to be silly very seriously.
Also, I do the things that I do with a lot of passion and, when new ideas breeze by, child-like awe excitement. I'm always on the lookout for someone who can light up with me about my stuff and who I can light up with or for the stuff she is passionate about.
Sometimes writing plays, acting, directing, and producing theatre. That feels really good.
Sometimes life-coaching. That feel really good too and sometimes I even get paid for it.
Sometimes teaching Jewish text, Kaballah, Thetare, and Mindfulness mostly to teenagers. That also feels really good and it's how I make my living.
Sometimes visiting my family in NY. That feels good and also lots of other things, included exactly the kind of challenging I need at the moment.
