Most important to me is enjoying, deepening, and nurturing my relationships with those important in my life (including small mammals). I get great fun and satisfaction from just about all things creative: painting, sculpting, cooking, kooky projects, gardening, and writing. Being outside--whether strolling city neighborhoods, kayaking, hiking, berry picking, or swimming (albeit timidly)--is another favorite thing. I love adventures; I'm loathe to do a great deal of planning before trips. Surprises are good. If I consider the adjectives with which I'd like to be described, I would like them to be warm, compassionate, funny, smart, talented, considerate, lefty (in politics and handededness), and of, course, female and Jewish.
