"Bob is a fun, wonderful guy who has the biggest heart. He cares deeply about his friends and the world around him. His life and his work have always about making the world a better place through his teaching or community involvement. Spirituality seems to be an important aspect to his foundation, but so is his sense of humor which is frighteningly abundant. He has a great sense of adventure - he is always organizing friends to explore some crazy new restaurant. I have no idea why he is single, he's a catch.
OK, so do I get a bottle of wine if you get a date from this?"
I've been a teacher most of my life, although I am currently working in the non-profit sector. I am committed to community development work, especially in areas where there is no sense of community. I make sure to balance my time with opportunities to get out doors hiking with my dog or exploring new spots in Boston with friends. I value living a healthy life - being active, eating well; meditation & yoga recharge my batteries.
Currently training for the 2013 BAA Half Marathon, which given the tragedy of this year's Marathon gives me a whole new sense of purpose. If the half goes well - then onto training for the Boston Marathon!
I am also really good at collecting a really wonderful circle of friends- that has been a gift that I cherish.
I am also really good at dreaming up the most unusual and memorable date-nights! Try me....
I love to be spontaneous - rarely ever say not to a friend who says lets jump in the car and take a drive to ______ or let's grab a bite to eat and see a movie - love those carefree moments with friends.
Also blessed with some great legs - years of hiking and biking

Curling up with my Dad on a rainy day

Family & friends
My summer camp (the people and the place - both have been home)
Sense of adventure
Sense of humor
What I would like to be doing: Exploring a unchartered part of town with someone special or date night in - cooking together, watching a movie, laughing.
