My self-summary
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 dysentery, hopefully).

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 friend
dabbling artist, loud car-singer, experimental cook, happier eater
occasional museum-goer, always dancer, always live music lover
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 fun?

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:
running shoes
Ball jars
public radio
hot sauce

seriously, though: the outdoors. the best parts of my neighborhood in Boston are the ponds, arboretum, and cemetery. thanks for these, Olmsted.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
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 sunsets.
running. whether to sign up for a race in yellowstone or somewhere else rural and beautiful.
where i could have a little farm - or at least a big garden - with bees. maybe chickens and a goat?
