How about we… go to a museum with sketch pads & draw something that interests us... then maybe grab a beer or glass of wine...
An awesome place I've visited:
Pike's Peak. Caught between my fascination with mountains and a fear of heights, I decided to drive up the guard rail-less dirt road with a sheer drop off thousands of feet up, and it was spectacular! Plus, I'm not afraid of heights any more!
The movie I've watched the most times:
Aside from the Christmas movies we've all seen dozens of times, probably Dr. Zhivago.
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
Born in Oklahoma, raised in upstate NY, have lived in Boston, Miami and NYC. I'm a distance runner,a writer of fantasy & sci-fi, and also working on my PhD in literature. Along the way I had twins, so I'm a mom, too. Love animals, nature, stained glass, literature, running (especially trail running), ice skating, yoga, snuggling on the sofa & watching movies.
My first concert / My dream concert:
First Concert: Peter Frampton. I stood in the 1st row & nearly passed out! But wow, what an iconic memory! One incredible concert memory is lisening to Dvorak under the stars with my best friend. Another was hearing Jim Carroll in Boston... Dream Concert? If I can't travel back in time to hear Mozart or Beethoven live, then I'd settle for a festival featuring Yes, Jethro Tull, and Led Zeppelin. And Bowie. And Enigma. And Loreena McKinnit.... I could probably throw in a few others but hopefully you get the picture.
Obscure knowledge I possess:
Details about Native American captivities. Life behind the scenes of a Renaissance Faire. How to do a salchow and a toe loop.

An infatuation of mine:
