The six things I could never do without
The people in my life
My Love Bird
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Love...All You Need is Love
How to make the lives of the people around me better and
How to improve myself
How to get better at the things I do
How to get my students to learn
The world and the injustice in it and how to improve the many
problems...climate change, the assault on education, women's
rights, and workers rights...wanting peace and equality.
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing something rediculously cool, endlessly hip, and infinately
fun with somone like you...going to a concert or hearing live music
at a club...like the Green Mill...or at a movie, watching a dvd,
working, hanging out with people much smarter than me...eating good
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
hmm...Well...er...I know...no not that...you can ask me
anything....but then it won't be private anymore...I am very open.
You should message me if
You think we could add something to each other's lives. I am open
to new friends as well as obviously looking for a romantic partner
as I do like love.
