About meI'm an attorney, artist, photographer, writer (fiction and poetry), vegetarian, distance runner and beginner yogi. I also rescue and rehabilitate, for adoption, dogs and cats (intake, adopter screening, adoptions, foster care) for a local all-foster, no-kill humane association (www.animalheartline.org) and usually have a foster cat or dog in residence, awaiting adoption. I live and work in the Chicago suburban area. Reading is beyond a passion, it's a way of life. I average about a book a week. I have a black cat Lucien (5-ish) and Spectacled Parrotlet Will (12-ish), who are AWESOME. I lost my very best friend and companion at 16+ years of age, my dog Sunny Aug. 7, 2013.
About my libraryMy motto is pretty simple: If it's good, I'll give it a try. I enjoy most subjects and genres (but not a huge SciFi, Mystery or Fantasy chick) and feel by reading, we learn until we die; and I love to learn. I am mostly into literary fiction (contemporary and classic), non-fiction of most subjects but especially biographies, Buddhism, mindful, body wellness and nature stuff.
