Friday Five- Five Things

To get your own obamicon go to obamicon.me

"Whether it's new friends or new loves or new employers, what are five things people should know about you?"

1. I'm a counselor, Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Certified Rehabilitation Counselor, but I'm an introvert. Somehow it never comes into play at work. I'm able to listen intently and take it all in, to 'talk the angry people down'-I'm a senior counselor in my office so I often, like several times a week, see the angry and dissatisfied clients of the counselors in my unit. But when I get home, I'm exhausted.

2. I'm from Ohio, so though I've lived in NYC well over half of my life-1972- people keep saying "where are you from?" (Yes, they use bad grammar.)

3. Did I say I'm an introvert? How did I ever end up living in a 500 sq ft. apt. with Beloved? We should have kept looking...

4. I live across the street from the General Theological Seminary. Also upstairs from Billy's Bakery, but my favorite place is LiLac Chocolate, IMHO the best chocolate in NYC. And I do love my chocolate, milk please, with nuts. Sometimes you feel like a nut.

5.I'm still on my spiritual path and my church search. Searching, searching, searching...

Hope I can visit you someday and go to Lilac's chocolate.

Praying for the church search; it can be such an ordeal. Are there any good lgbt-friendly Episcopalians around there? Wish you could come to our parish....

Oh! I forgot that you lived across from General. We talked about the little french cafe across the street, on the same side that General is on. Is it still there since the last time I asked?

I just love NYC. You must too!

I love your play, too!
