Earthling. World citizen since I was knee-high. This is the only planet I currently have access to.
Ukrainian Jew, German, Scots, Irish, English, Caribbean... I don't know how I get along with myself!
Critical thinking. Unmasking false assumptions. But for a living I have been a jack of all trades. Brought up in restaurants and worked all phases, 15 years as chef. Currently a woodworker doing high-end end cabinetry and architectural woodwork.
Dreaming. Diving. Flying. Social activist when not in, on, or under water.
Teach English, Learn Kreyol.
Earth. New York. Yes.
"Dr. King said it best in 1963: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.“ Amen. "
This is the only planet I currently have access to. I encourage people to treat it gently and with respect. Treating one another that way is a very good beginning.
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
Hi Avra! thank you for Joining! I'd love to see your "furtive and suspicious!"
Thank you for joining the group. I am currently looking for a venue to host the first meetup (any suggestions are welcome).
Thanks for the great contributions to our discussion board, Avra!!
