I like to climb trees and rocks but always scare myself silly doing so.
I bike year-round because it's fun and fast.
I have two dogs who found me when I was living on a Reservation out West; they are fantastic creatures.
I serenaded my fellow backpackers this summer since they asked. I had four songs: two of the songs were by Neil Young, one was by John Prine, and one was by Leonard Cohen. Next step: learning how to play a guitar because it will go really well with my repertoire and with my fire pit. Can you help me with this?
In addition to all of the above, I read, I write, I run, I yoga, I save up for summer travels, and I have a thing for nostalgia and live music. I'm curious, thoughtful, and love taking risks.
Lately my students have been giving me a lot of compliments on my cardigans, so maybe people notice whichever teenage fan-club cardigan I happen to be wearing.
TV: Daily Show, Breaking Bad, X-Files, Twin Peaks, Misfits, and The Wire. Amy Goodman's pretty great too.
Movies: Solaris, Breaking the Waves, City of God, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Half Nelson, Into the Wild, Labyrinth, Children of Men, Blue Valentine, Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance...
Food: pretty much anything without a face, but I don't have a problem if you eat animals. Seriously, I'm not a snob about it. Though I appreciate ethical consumerism.
Music: Neko Case, Bob Dylan, The Roots, Silvio Rodriguez, Nina Simone, Bowie, Belle and Sebastian, Leonard Cohen, and silence... sometimes I find noise unbearable.
Smells: campfire, sage, jasmine, sauteed garlic, banana bread.
