My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
[update: i am moving back to the west coast in a couple months]

mary oliver has a quote i absolutely love: "tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?"

when i lived in the south, i decided i would approach life with the mantra "almost always yes." try new things; go new places; learn new things; say yes to an abundant life by sometimes saying no ... the "almost always yes" philosophy has served me well!

some highlights so far: i have lived in lots of places across the country (west, midwest, south, northeast) with one year-long sojourn abroad; ran my first half-marathon on the cape in february 2013 (in the freezing rain) (and others since); caught lobsters off boston's south shore (ask me about walking back from the beach with the lobster in hand...); came to love square dancing in the ozarks and have happily found a community here in boston; have enjoyed the seemingly endless snow with walks around my neighborhood and sledding near the jp pond; and more (but those stories are better shared in person).

among many things, i am a:
runner, reader, writer, public radio listener, advocate, educator
artist, singer, cook, eater
museum-goer, dancer, live music lover
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.
i really need the great outdoors/some sort of green space in a city

life would be a little less lovely without these things:
running shoes
picnics & patios
Ball jars
Rainbow flipflops
hot sauce
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
snow. whether to shovel my car. where to put said snow.
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 (any aspiring beekeepers out there?).
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you'd like to talk to me about your answer to mary oliver's question...

you'd enjoy meeting up for a drink or tea or a stroll or something else...

you have a great popcorn topping recipe; you're a bee-whisperer; you would go dancing; you would wake up early and find some place amazing to watch the sunrise...

[this is a non-exhaustive list, so feel free to send a message even if you don't have a great popcorn topping recipe or you're not a bee whisperer (even though that would be so cool)]...
