I have a tendency to question things that are unfair whether they are going on in the world or at work. Despite the advice of friends and colleagues, I can’t seem to ignore them. I should know better by now--- I am a social worker (no therapist jokes, please!) and although my goal is to empower my clients, I also try to help them manage situations that they cannot change. I guess this is an example of not being able to take my own advice! I love socializing but to tell the truth, I’m not the life of the party----I’m more like the guy on the sidelines who joins in and you warm up to and realize is funny when you get to know him. I am open to new experiences and like to have fun. I am a devoted, loyal, loving friend. I'm always up for a good joke and have a good sense of humor. I cry when I watch movies (and I'll confess sometimes at other times, too). So, what do I like? Food. Love eating it, cooking it, going to restaurants---cheap ones and those pricier, special ones, too, as well as going to markets and reading cookbooks. I like going to the theatre and movies and also going to hear live music but haven’t done enough of that lately. I like to read but have to admit that my “New Yorker” magazines are piling up and have begun to take over. Going to museums is always a good escape. I also enjoy pretending to be a tourist in Boston and checking out different neighborhoods and taking long walks. Yoga and meditation help keep me sane. So does walking around Jamaica Pond and the Arboretum or just being outside for that matter.
