Most mornings, you can find me taking an early walk through my DC neighborhood. I’m the short one with the ready smile, looking for you. When I feel like I’ve got the blood humming in my veins, I’ll head back to my condo, get some coffee into me for good measure, and start my day. I might email some friends and invite them for dinner on Friday night, or maybe I’ll be spending the weekend with my big, wonderful family. Either way, there will be abundant good food, thoughtful conversation with a pinch of spiritual exploration sprinkled in, and lots of laughter. That’s all you really need, right?
I’m likely to be working on plans for a trip with a friend to someplace we’ve never seen before. India? Ireland? I’m open to suggestions. Where would you go if you had your pick? Then I’ll spend a while on the phone with potential clients, and my week will take shape around their varied needs. You should definitely ask me what I do for a living when we get together. If I tell you now, it will only spoil the fun.
Speaking of getting together, I’ve lived in DC for over twenty years and would be happy to suggest a favorite spot for dinner—if you like Mediterranean food, the tapas at Agora are to die for—but I’d be just as glad if you would pick the place. I don’t sweat the small stuff it’s people I care about.
I’m a former journalist, so I’ve got a natural curiosity, and will tend to pepper you with questions across the table. As the sages say, “Who is wise? She who learns from everyone.” But I promise I’ll be gentle! I always am. And I know openness goes both ways, so I hope you’ll ask me questions, too. I’d love to tell you about my childhood in the Bronx as a first generation American in a Polish-Jewish family—I am a treasure-trove of Yiddish expressions—or about all the places I’ve lived that helped me shake off my New York provincialism ☺.
Ask me anything. My heart is open, and I can’t wait to start our adventures together.
