My self-summary
One day I was on the phone with my friend, and he said, “Lena, you need an intellectual. Someone with leather patches on his corduroy jacket, book in hand.”

I couldn’t help but smile. Nothing is as attractive as a man who can speak to me about Plato’s allegory of the cave and quote William Carlos Williams or T.S. Eliot during the course of a casual conversation without sounding arrogant. I guess it’s not really about the books but more about being with someone who is a serious person, who thinks deeply about life.

My other friend says that I have a Woody Allen type angst. Whatever you call it, but there is something in me that gives me unending energy while Lindy Hop dancing, something that makes me climb to the peak of a mountain, no matter how steep, something that makes me write Wonder Year like stories about my life, bittersweet and earnest, and have passionate debates with my students about Romeo and Juliet.

I am looking for someone who will share my joy for life—whether it’d be hiking a mountain, strolling down sunlit streets hand in hand, or going to the theater. I am looking for love, the kind when your head spins with the thought of the next date, when you grow and learn and change together, and when you would do anything for each other.
What I’m doing with my life
Enjoying the sunshine, reading, going on walks and hikes, writing, swing dancing, doing yoga, spending time with people I care about and trying to "habit myself to the dazzle of the light and of every moment of my life" (as Walt Whitman put it).
I’m really good at
I love teaching ... but getting 13-year-olds to sit still and discuss Lord of the Flies is a task not for the faint of heart.

I am also good at hiking, good at listening, and good at "reading" people.
The first things people usually notice about me
I will go with a cliche--my smile.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
While riding the train in Boston, I liked to make up stories about the lives of the people around me. I tend to do this other places as well... What better way to entertain oneself while people watching?
On a typical Friday night I am
Swing dancing, hanging out with friends, or home with a book.
