I believe in exercise for health, fitness, and fun. When I was in high school I was a long distance runner and ballerina. Most days, I walk a few miles a day, most days. Whenever possible I participate in fun social sports, such as ping-pong, kayaking, bowling, and dance. Lately, I take a Zoom yoga/feldenkrais class.
Music is very important to me. I started singing and playing guitar as a teenager, and later performed at clubs in nyc. It turned into a second career for me. I've written and recorded 2 albums, and some of these songs have been on tv and the radio. I wrote a lullaby, which I look forward to singing to my future baby.
I enjoy arts and crafts time, and every holiday season make lip balm for friends. These can be fun activities to do with children. I hope to teach my future child to cultivate creative pursuits into adulthood, whatever they do for a living.
Here are a few words from a lullaby I wrote:
"Singing the songs in my heart
Hoping to sing them with you in my arms
Singing with all of my charm
Singing with visions of you from afar..."
