I am a retired academic, trying to keep learning forever. I enjoy being with friends, movies and TV, long drives, gourmet cooking (attempting to do so), and meeting new people. I have done genealogy work and try to explore Jewish history. I am open to new relationships, but I am certainly more complicated than I can express in just a few sentences. By the way, most people think I am much younger than I actually am. All of those years of teaching young people, I guess. Of course, even at my age, I am still close to my mother (not geographically close). She is 102 and lives in Florida.
