I am smart, energetic, affectionate, and funny (in a snarky sort of way). My point of view is very liberal, but I am inquisitive and open to new ideas. I read a good deal and am a news junkie, with a “minor” in NPR, and I love a good discussion. I have a big, enthusiastic dog and a collection of cats, and one of my life's ambitions is not to become a "crazy cat lady."
I am in the final stages of emptying my nest (the youngest is in Israel, then off as a camp counselor and to college), beginning to look for new ways to occupy my time and energies. My kids remain the (or at least a) center of my universe, but I hope to broaden my horizons, travel more and become more involved in good works.
