She kept her Vienna apartment with a rooftop garden until a couple years ago and still visits Austria twice a year. Although she drove in Europe, she says she "lost confidence" and doesn't have a license here, so she walks everywhere with their golden retriever, Cody. After studying ballet for fifteen years, she now practices archery--"an elegant sport"--setting up a target in her garage and shooting from the driveway. Although she and Andy don't share many musical tastes--he's a Deadhead who followed the band on both coasts--they attend University Musical Society and theater performances together.

The best place to observe elegance in Ann Arbor, she says, is at Dancing in the Streets, the annual Labor Day weekend celebration downtown. Asked about local fashion disasters, she comments, mildly, on "too-short skirts with too-high heels" and "clothing that's not age appropriate." But she emphasizes she's not the fashion police and she's not conservative about what people should wear: "You should express yourself and have fun with it."    (end of article)
