Thanks for visiting this website! I’m a university professor, a sociologist, an educator but this website is not meant to be a place for academic writing. My scholarly articles can be found here and my professional affiliation is here.

I’m a woman, a mother, a wife, a friend, a daughter, a colleague; I’m Russian, I’m Jewish, I’m Israeli, I’m American, I’m twice an immigrant. I’m a physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual being. And I’m also a writing being. Some pieces are stories, but some are too short to be called a story, just a few paragraphs, almost like the photographs taken using words. Or, as my friend suggested, the watercolors of words. Happy reading!
