My self-summary
I live downtown. I like being close enough to where I want to be (work, fun, friends) that I can walk or cycle. I spend a lot of time in classrooms, more often teaching, sometimes as a student. I tend to wear jeans and button-down shirts, sometimes a jacket.

I'm looking for someone who has enough in common with me that the daily getting on with life isn't fraught with conflict and enough different that I can enjoy engaging in someone else's way of being and of seeing the world.
What I’m doing with my life
teaching
reading
volunteer work
working on my kitchen skills
taking courses
enjoying the gravy
catching up on a few things that I put on hold over the last few years
I’m really good at
playing ball with the terrier
the basics of bicycle maintenance
listening
salads
seeing the other side, but also seeing your side, because sometimes that's the side that matters
