I love to laugh and consider myself an optimist. I was raised a conservative Jew, but consider myself pretty secular. I look at life as a beautiful accident (or an inevitability!), and try to enjoy it as much as possible. Whenever I'm stressed, I'm relaxed by the soft kiss of the warm sun and the sounds of songbirds.
Physical stuff: I work out regularly, and like to kayak, canoe, and bike. I also love working with my hands--fixing and making various things.
I'm very empathetic--I hate seeing others down and always try to make them feel better. I laugh at things easily, and have been told I have a great sense of humor, though that's probably a reference to my sense of fashion. Shut up.
I like to keep up on world events, and consider myself very liberal. My outlook on the world seems rather rare: one of cause and effect reason and rationality but also of beauty, wonder, and mystery. You'll sometimes catch me staring off into space, thinking about any number of things.
