How to summarize a life? I have no idea, I suppose an anecdote or two and basically a list will have to do. I think we put too much pressure on ourselves for anything and everything to be a success – work, play, a date, even an e-mail, let alone a relationship. Friendship is what’s really important -- meeting new people, sharing common interests and being able to be yourself (but maybe not immediately).
I am athletic and way too competitive, but I try to hide that behind a veneer of non-chalance. I run (sometimes barefoot), I practice all kinds of yoga from the most intense to the most basic, and I dance even though I don’t have any natural talent for it. I love music and play a number of instruments, some even reasonably well. I wish I could play by ear and I do practice that, but there’s never enough time because I’m going to a concert or opera instead! I love to travel - sometimes to get away, but mostly because there is something going on somewhere that I just have to do. I am really drawn to foreign culture and languages, from archaic to modern.
