After 5 years in Arizona, returned to the Northeast 4 years ago--a wealth of strong connections here: Connecticut native, alum of Yale and of Columbia.
Vegetarian for about 25 years.
Egalitarianism in all its flavors is a core value for me.
I'm forthcoming and flexible, and really enjoy those who share those two strengths.
I'm a casual dresser. Almost always. (occasional tuxes, obvious exception)
I'd be thrilled at the rich possibility of starting a family with someone. I'd also be very happy to integrate into an existing one. At least for now—2013—I'm making that some kind of priority. We'll see how it goes . . .
Here's a lovely endorsement. A friend of mine unexpectedly lost her ex-husband Marvin and was concerned about her young son; she asked if I'd be willing to be his guardian if need arose. Here's some of what she said:
"I think highly of who you are in this world. I know of your great intellect, values, and capacity to love and nurture. I believe in who you are and what you stand for. It is for all of those reasons, I would want my son (and I think Marvin would also) to be raised by you or someone like you."
