We'll see how it goes.
I'm a city girl who once was a park ranger in New Mexico and in Alaska...(really!)
I'm a wise-cracking, relentlessly honest, loyal, generous person who is also somewhat of a misanthrope. I am from New York. Lived in Alaska, New Mexico and Chicago before settling here for the moment. I love animals more than people and the misunderstood animals are my favorites. Bats, anyone?
I'm looking for a partner. Someone who enjoys life, has humor, is active, seeks adventure (not danger) and knows himself. I'm pretty content, not looking for someone to "complete" me, so the reverse would be good, too. I have a dog (a chihuahua) and a cat, so tolerance of animals (at the very least) is a must.
I'm an artist.
I'm a professor.
I'm a volunteer (at the animal shelter).
I teach yoga.
I'm in nutrition school...going for my masters...for fun.
Planning a study abroad program for this summer in Iceland. My favorite place. Should be fun as hell! Super excited.
Also, yoga...lots of yoga!
And knitting...the winter is perfect for that.
Plus reading about cell anatomy and physiology.
creative problem solving
trying new things
taking a chance
meaning what I say
saying what I mean
making delicious vegetarian food
eating said food
If it's warm outside, my tattoos (half of one leg is covered).
If it's cold, probably that I'm wearing a coat on top of a down vest, on top of a sweater, on top of a shirt (or two)...I get cold...it gets cold here. Sometimes I wear mittens on top of gloves!
I have a weakness for John Cusak in the 80s...is that SO wrong?!

I love spicy food and am quite adventurous even though I am vegetarian. I love fresh fruit, especially peaches, cantaloupe and cherries.
Also been listening to some podcasts:
Here's the thing, Serial, The Moth, Invisibilia and, of course, This American Life.
friends + pets
art + music + film

Nutrition and health...for me and for others.
How teaching and learning are the same thing.
or doing yoga
or having dinner with friends.
Sometimes there's an art opening or something.
And now there's homework, too.
