My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Teacher, writer, father, artistically inclined generally. Easily defeated by tiny sleds from my childhood. Often covered in paint and sawdust. I'll take the lakes, the mountains, a bonfire, and the Oxford comma any time. INFP, if the Myers-Briggs thing interests you at all.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I moved back to Maine a couple years ago after getting my MFA in fiction. Mostly I'm working and being grateful to be back home in Dirigo.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Recently: Building furniture out of lumber reclaimed from old barns. Partaking in many bonfires and much vitamin d gathering in the backyard to welcome spring and banish the winter. Consistently: Self-deprecation. Listening, conversing, thinking. Fighting my natural cynicism, and appreciating all the good I see each day. Rambling hikes. Movie theaters. Lists. Parallel parking. Breaking stuff, unfortunately. Fixing stuff, fortunately. Going down Wikipedia wormholes. Knowing the names of various flora and fauna. Being fascinated by old things, honoring them, salvaging them. History, heritage, the past (both personal and cultural)--these things matter so much, and I think we're all too guilty of forgetting. Being overly preoccupied by birds, trees, a striking swatch of skyline, etc. Understanding who I am. Being verbose in on le Internet =).

Sigh. I fear the verbosity and list-making has gotten out of hand.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Books, seasons, storytelling, a mountain to walk up or a meadow to walk through, the people in this world I love, parenthetical references (obviously).
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Honestly, decompressing from a long week being surrounded by high schoolers. A book, a movie, a beverage, a bonfire in the backyard. Maybe some time in the barn, with friends, or among the comfort of terrible CW TV shows.
