Chocolate, yoga, teaching and walking my dog, Ralph are some of the activities from which I find satisfaction. My recent travel adventures include Ojai, Hong Kong, Mumbai and Washington, DC. I will be returning to Paris and London for semester break. I have just completed my novel based on growing up Jewish in the South in the revolutionary days of the '60s. I still read a newspaper and listen to NPR. I like Homeland, Downton Abbey and Mad Men. Breaking Bad is too much.
