Water baby. Most happy in zero gravity. Scuba, sky-diving, trapeze, or in my dreams... Lunar Base 1.
Sports? Not so much (Read: zero). Exercise? Every day. I work for a living (work= force x distance).
Hiking? This is walking in rustic environs? Yes, up to a point. I would be interested, and possibly persuaded, to wrestle alligators. But bears? Emphatically: No! I have seen what seals can do (oddly, they are related). I loved jumping out of planes 40 years ago, and gave it another go this year. Still a blast, albeit less challenging with the newer ram air parachutes. It seems the sort of thing that one should give a go every 40 years or so. If you can't join me this year, maybe the next go round?
Dive, climb, cave, explore, paddle, discuss, cook, argue, and drink. But not in that order.
Diving beneath the ice in Lake George. Moonscape bottom, diffused light, ethereal quality. Face numbed by cold, on a tether not unlike an EVA... complete silence except for my own breathing. Balance, harmony, light... in the moment. Stark beauty.

Thanks so much, Avra, for not only attending yesterday's premiere of the Civil War tour, but for your very kind review. I also appreciate your generous cross-listing of my upcoming Slavery tour on your own site. Hope to see you again soon!
Hi Avra - I'd love to play a more active role in the group. Let me know how I can help. - Sia
thanks for the reminder. I just announced the screening to the whole group. I will see you there
Hi Avra, yes that was a wetsuit. Sounds like we share several interests, excellent! Will look for you too at the astro on tap event. ;-)
Hi Avra, sorry you won't be able to attend tonight, but I hope to meet soon! Thanks for the connection! - Justin
Hi Avra - We just wanted to thank you for joining us at our Girl Rising meetup on Saturday. We hope you found the film as moving as we did! If you want to join our mailing list, volunteer with us, or donate, head to http://iirr.org/. Or you can email [masked] for more information!
As expected, I am not able to come to NYC from central NJ today because of possible bad weather when returning (am still recovering from being hit by a cab in December, so a little less than sure footed). I do want to be involved with your very meaningful group, so will be coming when the weather improves.
Thanks, Thea Samit
Hi Avra, thank you for the wonderful welcome message. I look forward to seeing you at the meetup next week!
Welcome Avra! I look forward to meeting you in person in our first meetup tonight @ 6:30 PM! In order to make this meetup as interesting as possible to all its members, please let me know if you have any specific interests in the sailing world (stories you want to hear, people you wish to meet, experiences you wish to have etc.). Thanks! Nitzan - Sailors NYC
