Why you are interested in spirituality? I’m interested in people. People’s religious and spiritual decisions are so character-revealing!
Your favorite quote: “It is a night when kings in golden suits ride elephants over the mountains.” It’s the last line of a John Cheever story called The Country Husband.

Your hero? I’m not sure I have a hero. I’m accepting applications.
A spiritual lesson you hope to learn? I’d like to learn more about finding balance in life.
A place in the world where you feel spiritually “connected?” Sometimes in Jerusalem, sometimes not.
