My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am the single parent of a very cool 17 year old son (divorced). My ex lives with her fiancé in Boston. Given I've recently transitioned from a 25 year relationship, the most sensible path I've discovered is polyamory (see definition below).

I love being outside. I stay healthy, I am passionate about education, art, music, pets, nature and social justice causes. I volunteer with my son's high school PTO, I play drums & cello in a small band and I have a weekly free-speech volunteer radio show that makes me very happy.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently a full-time middle school special education teacher. I have a home in the Florence section of Northampton, MA. (I also rent 2 rooms in my home for extra income.)

A few things that really interest me are: If you have a great deal of positive energy, if you value pets, nature, the arts, social justice, education, recycling, healthy eating; if you like to stay active and have some cool hobbies. The latter may sound random, but I really want to spend time with someone who is fun, intelligent and happy. I do enjoy public displays of affection, physical touch and lots of laughter!

Meeting for coffee, tea or live music for talking and even dancing would make a great first date.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening, being positive, laughing, cheering others up and finding the best in others.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My kindness, friendly smile, sincerity, humor and passion. I've been told that if you look closely, my eyes are very cool color of brown.
