July 19, 2009: I hate to say it, but I'm just not getting any matches on this site; so I'm closing up shop and trying my luck elsewhere. So sorry to have missed you if you come upon this and found me interesting...
I currently work 6 days a week, so unfortunately I don't really have any well-developed hobbies at the moment, but:
I now have a solo show of my photography on exhibit at a gallery here in NJ (my second one!).
I fall asleep nights by working on Sudoku and logic puzzles.
I am supposed to be writing a novel with my friend M., though I haven't yet written a word :).
I enjoy hanging out at my friends' farm, with their horses, chickens, dogs, cats and pet raccoon.
My brother and I love finding unusual words--it's a sort of contest. The current winner: "haecceity"--literally, "this-ness: the essence of something that makes it unique."
My vacations usually consist of me getting in the car with some friends and driving somewhere new--exploring someplace I've never been, finding some odd little shop, or a statue in the middle of the woods, or a town with a strange name (Bovina Center, NY!).
I think a great way to get to know another person is to work on something together--to volunteer for a few hours and clean up a stream, or help out at an animal shelter. Then we could have a nice picnic, or dinner at a quiet restaurant...and then we could go dancing!
