In my relationships I try to have as much integrity as possible: striving to be honest and respectful, accepting and nonjudgmental, seeing and loving the whole person before me. I guess I'm looking for someone who strives similarly. I am a nurturer, seeking another nurturer. I devote time daily to intellectual, esoteric and real-world subjects, partly through my career and partly through my spiritual strivings to be a better person.
Most of my professional career has been as a teacher of kids. For 4 years I facilitated groups (kids and adults) through a ropes course, low ropes and high ropes, out in the woods in Connecticut. (Low ropes is about team-building while solving group challenges; High ropes is about individuals facing fear, contacting inner courage and stepping forward.) I am currently teaching middle school writing. It is in many ways my dream job! I feel very fortunate in many respects of my life.
I love exploring new places, walking around the city, getting out of the city, eating out, live music, movies, camping, playing on the beach, gardening, reading. I love trying new things. I don't do high-energy workouts, but I am certainly fit. I'm 5'6" and 130 pounds, pretty regularly proportioned. I LOVE being outdoors in almost all weather, and walking/hiking is my go-to activity several times a week, with various friends and alone (with my dog). I have done tons of backpacking and camping throughout my life. I love dancing of (almost) all types and used to go out contra and swing dancing regularly.
Please send me an email if we may be a good match.
