It took some doing to find just the right place to live in the Puget Sound. I'm in a good place and look forward to getting to know some new folk. I volunteer with four different organization, two of which specifically manage the trail-running population of western Washington.
When I'm not teaching, I engage in weekly Pilates and/or yoga (I'm a certified and experienced Pilates Trainer), resistance training 4x a week, and running twice weekly (7-10 mile runs; 4-8 mile faster runs). As much as I wanted to alpine ski this past season, the snowfall was ultra low and the base was crap. I still want to go snowshoe-hiking on Mount St. Helens (February) and perhaps the mountain snow will pickup in time for decent skiing in February, too.
I strive for good communication, and while sometimes fall short, I work at it. Whether my thoughts, feelings, processes, struggles, I'll appropriately share them. If you think it's TMI, then my honesty will probably take some getting used to. You'll always know where you stand with me, but it can take some relationship-building to recognize that. Zero illusions.
If I can't make you laugh, there's something afoot! Comedy is SO important! It's too easy to take ourselves too seriously, and my wit is both heavenly and hellish : it slices and it heals.
. . .and then there's the whole cooking thing. BIG Italian food lover at heart. So I work at cooking, and baking occasionally. It ALL comes out delicious! I've been working more with preparing dishes with ingredients at-hand, and I'm jazzed about the progress I've made in assembling flavors and textures. Part of living in a good place is having a great kitchen to whip up some dishes, and my emphasis (besides flavor-texture maps) is on tapas, or small portions, for social sharing. Ask me about calzone del prete, for instance.
Hmm, and I'm a brainiac. Hardcore. Totally multifaceted and cerebral to boot :).
And plants. I'm REALLY good at rearing plants. UNCANNILY good. Sursly. :0) I have tropic plants indoors, and am working on designing a garden installation for the house (spring/summer '14). I miss my 2000sf organic garden and 800sf native plant butterfly garden in Wisconsin, which just inspires me to do more :).
1) I'm quite physically fit
2) easily mistaken for a literature/English educator OR writer
4) my dorkiness
I generally don't watch television, yet do enjoy celebrating trash TV with friends. I really enjoy animated faire, yet the quality has plunged terribly in the past handful of years. I swore an oath at 10 years old that I would always watch cartoons, and here I am. Claymation falls under this umbrella of sometimes goofy, sometimes critical, sometimes awesome, approach of art & science.
Pretty big film buff, though I don't get as many indie movies under my belt as I might be able to. I prefer films that _really_ get to me and motivate me to think, that inspire me, that unlock aspects of my personality & essential being. This is why I engage film media : it can have an enormous impact on me. There is also something tranquil, calming, relaxing about cinema, whether in the home or in the studio, that is arresting.
Musicals? I can leave them. They don't do much for me. Live theater is alright, but I prefer provocative & unique (like The Wild Project in NYC, or BloodSquad and Can Can Castaways here in SEA).
Food? BRING IT! I love food! And trying new food! Er, just not fried chicken or pure eggs. Gross! :-)
