warm, cerebral, playful, grounded. an avid reader, certifiable foodie, and daily jogger (that's when i do my best thinking!). i love summer, farmers' markets, folk music, broadway musicals, bluegrass, blueberries, julia child, cookbooks, used book stores, sunday ny times, black and white photos, lilacs, bananagrams, canoeing/kayaking, jim lehrer, tom lehrer, early beatles, old houses, strong coffee, passover, thanksgiving, yiddish expressions, cape ann, the berkshires, italy. i am passionate about parenting my two amazing kids, ages 17 and 19. and worried about the world we are leaving them. always trying new recipes and trying to catch up on my reading! there's an abundant stack of books next to my bed, along with back issues of the new yorker and always foodie mags!
