I grew up in the Boston area, and most of my family still live there. I've traveled a lot. Most recently, I spent 3.5 years living in N. Yorkshire, England. I moved back to the States late February 2013.
I would say that I'm relatively well adjusted and balanced on most days. I'm an observer and scientist in all that I do. Life, the Universe, the Cosmos, nature... I see beauty in just about everything. My thirst for knowledge is insatiable.
I'm generally a positive person with a great heart and a good attitude. I'm very thoughtful of others, probably more honest than most, and generally very patient and kind. It's not difficult for me to see the good in people. I find that practicing compassion and making thoughtful choices works well for me, and so does surrounding myself with people who usually make wise choices.
I like to surround myself with life. I have a 70lb greyhound, Judas. He is a an ex-racer and rescue from Ireland, and just so happens to be "the best dog ever". I also have 2 children, and they have a guinea pig (Woody), a Betta (copernifish), and 3 unnamed hermit crabs (all rescued). My home is full of plants. I also think it's worth mentioning, my home smells of nag champa, jasmine, and scented candles, not a farm. I keep a pretty tidy and clean ship.
I'm a woman who is very much interested in living in a peaceful world, so I do my best to play my part in trying to make that happen. I care about people, nature, and the planet, so I do my best to make thoughtful choices; I recycle. I volunteer. I donate blood. I care about equal rights for all. I'm a bit of an activist at times, and have been known to protest inequality in it's many forms. I believe in "Being the change" I wish to see in the world. I learn from and embrace my mistakes. I'm a very optimistic, hopeful, and positive person.
I consider myself to be a 4 on the Kinsey scale, but more than anything I consider myself to be sapio-sexual. Arrogance, bitterness, and constant self loathing are major turn-offs for me.
