dep.

what he preaches. He has rad-
ically restructured his life.
"The best thing I ever did was,
three years ago, to go to the
leadershcp,of my congregation
and say can't go on like this
any more. It's not fair to you or
to me,' " he explains. "I cut
back to half time and salary,
and arranged for them to
bring in a second full-time
rabbi."
The arrangement gave him
time to do the things which
make his life more meaning-
ful, among them, to spend
more time with his family.
One of his regrets is that he
did not spend more time ear-
lier with his daughter, Ariel,
now 19. "I was flying all over
the country, telling people
how to cope-with tragedy, and
my daughter had no one to
help her with her algebra
homework, etc.," he says. It
was wrong."
The sad thing, he says, is
that "a lot of people come to
this conclusion when their
children are teenagers. They
go to them and say 'I've been
selfish, I've spent too much
time on myself, but now I'm
ready to spend time with you,'
just when their children are
getting ready to say I've got
other plans.' "
He has been very happy to
spend the past 20 years in
Natick and looks forward to
another 20 there, but he is
glad to have the opportunity to
go south in the winter, to have
time to read a lot, go to the
cinema, exercise more and fol-
low sports. "For all my nega-

.

tive comments about sports,
I'm a sports junkie," he
laughs. "I will watch anything
where people keep score."
He is especially glad to have
more time for public speaking
and the "regenerative" occu-
pation of teaching. "Authentic
teaching represents a really
human connection," he says.
"You're really touching an-
other human soul."
He has come to terms with
middle age. His favorite quo-
tation from his book is from
Agatha Christie, who was
married to an archeologist.
Asked what it was like she re-
plied "It's wonderful. The
older I get, the more interested
he is in me."
"You don't have to be an ar-
cheologist to feel that way,"
asserts Kushner. "The older
we get, the more interesting
we become."
"Jung," he reminds us, "said
that the second act of life
should not be a replay of the
first. After 40, you should go
back and fill in the spaces you
left empty as you were grow-
ing up."
He firmly believes that
achieving, or failing to achieve
one set of goals, does not mean
that there is nothing left.
"There is no such thing as an
ordinary life," he says. "Every
human being is a unique
story, never before told and
never to be repeated."
And a mature palate, he has
discovered, brings to the eat-
ing and drinking even more
gladness and joy.0
