My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I guess I'm what you'd call a hybrid creature- part urban, part backwoods. I love living in the city, with live music and independent galleries and readings within a stone's throw of my place on any day of the week. But I equally love getting into a canoe and tripping into the interior.

I'm warm, and responsive, and I have a terrible poker face.

I'm also equal parts artsy and nerd/geek. I like smart, creative people.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
What am I doing with my life? Well, as a high school teacher, I'm spending a heck of a lot of time with young'uns, and that's a pretty great thing to do. Don't let anyone fool you- the kids are alright. And I teach English, so we spend a lot of time contemplating the "big questions." And teaching them forces me to think about how it is that I know how to do things. I am constantly reflecting about language and thought and the politics of power... it's an intense classroom for me too. Phew. That's an intense question. Jeez louise!

I'm also relishing my time outside work. I like heading out into the wilds, but for me, it's not an outdoor gym. I like the fact that I exert myself physically when I'm out there- it feels good. But I've always loved hiking in the woods or in a field. I stop often- listening, looking. So many things underneath our feet.

you know, given this site is what it is, and attracts the kind of people it attracts, shouldn't we be prompted to also declare our favourite websites andor podcasts?
just sayin.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

coffee in the morning...

I dunno. I'm fairly flexible- but I do love things...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

you think that all in all, life is a pretty good deal. You are smarter than the average bear, but you're comfortable with knowing that there's stuff you don't know.
