About Me

Hi there! I'm an energetic, optimistic 37 year old art therapist. I live in Israel with my husband and son and our cat and turtles. In my spare time I like to write, draw, listen to audiobooks, play flute duets with a friend, talk to good friends and watch tv. I've also started penpalling, postcrossing and swapping and love it.

I enjoy heart to heart talks with friends, laughing, getting swept into a movie and goofing off with my husband at home. I love roller coasters and nature and being able to see the sea from my living room (great sunsets).

In my job I work with children and adults and am a small child at heart. I'm glad I found my profession and so far enjoy what I do very much!

To be more specific (though open to a lot more): Beck, Pixies, The Smiths, Radiohead, Muse, Dandy Warhols, Franz Ferdinand, Depeche Mode, Tori Amos, Fiona Apple, Lily Allen, Keren Ann, The Beatles, David Bowie, Pink Floyd, Robert Wyatt, Zita Swoon, Air, Saint Germain, Bach, Vivaldi, Rachmaninoff.

Favorite Movies

Favorite quotes

“Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darknesses of other people”. Carl Jung

“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change." Carl Rogers

Comment: Thank you so much. Definitely the most unique package I've gotten. Thought there for a minute I had ice cream !! The big pine cone is beautiful. I'm going to display it but some place up high. My kitties love to play with things like that and if they can reach it --- it becomes theirs. Thoughts Of A Tree was very nice. I really liked the whole package. Thanks again.

Comment: Thank you for giving me background about your young life. The dialog was poignant and the photoshopped picture seemed very true.
Response: Thank you so much for the rating and for the heart! I'm glad you enjoyed it and wish you a great week :)
Comment: So sorry, I thought I had rated you.It is a great story and I enjoyed reading it. In NZ we also have double graves where one is buried on top of the other. But it must be arranged when the first burial takes place as that one have to be done deeper. Usually they are in coffins in New Zealand as it is mainly a Christian country. In the coffin the body is placed face up. Thanks for sharing with me, cheers :-)
Response: Thanks for the rating and for the heart! It's interesting that this kind of burial is known in NZ, I've never heard of it before! Take care and have a great weekend :)

Zsa517 rated for Be My Dinner Guest! on Jun 20, 2010
Comment: Thank you Miki! I really liked that you used "real photos" as opposed to ones printed on a printer, and I enjoyed the narrative on the back of each one. The recipe you sent reminds me of a Rigatoni al Forno recipe from Nigella Lawson. Very labor intensive, but DEFINITELY worth the time! Sounds delicious. I loved the ice cream stickers on the envelope, and the line at the end about my bf and I hiking off the calories was great. He tends to feel left out when I get into "swap mode," so I know he appreciated that comment. Thanks again!
Response: Thanks, I'm so glad you enjoyed the swap, recipe and photos! It was fun to make (and cook). I keep trying the tough recipes, practice makes perfect with them I guess...And thank you for the heart!
Comment: Such a perfect postcard, and the thought put into it was exceptionally apparent. I’ve posted it on the wall of my apartment. Thank you! And I can’t wait to visit!
Response: Thanks for rating and for the heart! I'm so happy you liked it and hope to see you when you visit! Be in touch if you do :)

Thanks so much for your package for the Creative Correspondence October WTA! I love them and they're such a good, usable size. The vellum one is especially sweet. :)

Hi Emily!

I was checking ratings for our Halloween Cupcake Toppers swap, and I noticed Behind the Attic Wall on your profile...one of my absolute FAVORITES!

I do hope you'll consider joining our Hundred Acre Wood group as well. Either way, so nice to meet another person who even knows what that books is.

I laid them all out and it was just a mess of letters and "say die never" then I facepalmed and was like wow.. how did I not get that right off the bat. lol. From that I got the goonies theme song stuck in my head... Which lead to watching The Goonies.. Thanks for the awesome day! lol.
