Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
In May I will be adding my name to the list of East Coasters
packing up and moving west in search of greener pastures and more
food trucks. A modern day Oregon Trail (without the cholera and
Mary Oliver has a quote I absolutely love: "tell me, what is it you
plan to do with your one wild and precious life?"
Some highlights so far: I have lived in lots of places across the
country (west, midwest, south, northeast, and now adding the
northwest to that list) with one year-long sojourn abroad; ran my
first half-marathon on the Cape in February 2013 (in the freezing
rain); carried a lobster we caught off Boston's south shore from
the beach back to our house; learned to square dance in the ozarks
and found an awesome community in Boston (I have high hopes for
Portland!); enjoyed (endured?) the seemingly endless snow of the
dark winter of 2015 with blizzard walks and sledding (and jumped
for joy when the flowers started unfurling)...
Among many things, I am a:
community runner, avid public radio listener, fiercely loyal
dabbling artist, loud car-singer, experimental cook, happier
occasional museum-goer, always dancer, always live music
committed tea drinker, amateur gardener, aspiring beekeeper
I expect and look forward to a life that lets me add new things to
that list (book writer? around-the-world-traveler? yoga teacher?),
and to finding a partner with whom to share that life. Sound like

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
ok. I'll play this game:
seriously, though: the outdoors. the best parts of my neighborhood
in Boston are the ponds, arboretum, and cemetery. thanks for these,

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
snow. still recovering from the trauma of this winter.
farmers, farms, & food.
where the best places are to see beautiful sunrises and
