I'm interested in the way people and communities come together religious, stoner, rave, professional etc. After doing a degree in Comparative Religious Studies, I'm taken in by the psychology of communities and 'cool-hunting' in general. I grew up overseas and, even though I've been in Canada for a while now, I've been known to hop the ferry to upstate New York or galavant in surrounding cities while I'm between jobs. Also, as a result of having lived in a myriad communities, my experience of Judaism tends towards the more liberal, and humanitarian.
I've just started working in marketing/business and am feeling like a kid in a candy store for having a hands-on look at industrial psychology.
I'm lucky to have people in my life who are opinionated, informed, nerdy-chique, creative and free-spirited. They inspired me to keep treading the path I've started down and reflect back onto me those qualities about myself which I most value. My life is very full - loved ones, friends, start-up business, volunteering, romantic interests, and the like. I'm not expecting to find love here but I truly am tired of having to explain my politic surrounding Israel and as it relates to larger concepts of inclusion and othering. I'm weary of teaching romantic partners what it means to me to be and feel Jewish, and at the same time, to know that my identity is not predicated on nor is it mutually exclusive to Judaism.
I'm single for the first time in a while. Revelling in the simplicity of solo-living, indulging my fancies and feeling amazing in my own skin.
In the summer, my favorite place to be in on a grass patch, shoes off, picnic on the ready, good friends, gelato and music on standby, and my curious and cuddlesome pooch sniffing around underfoot. I'm always up for a good gas-masked spray painting (of things, not walls) session or a swing on the hammock chair while I pick apart and rebuild antiques, retro and obsolete gems - or just enjoy some wine.
Nothing feeds the soul like connection and nothing connects you to others like empirical experience. Along those lines, I'm ever learning what does and doesn't turn me on. It's just amazing to learn that a kink you've never even heard of can get your heart racing. By the same token, soft tickle, sweet touch can elicit the same physical response and emotional connection.
