I'm passionate about education, languages, current events, social justice, and building a community that we can be proud of.
I'm also camping, reading, cycling, swimming... sometimes trying to dance. I play cello but not enough.
Poetry by Lawrence Ferlinghetti, I'rene Lara Silva, Joaquin Zihuatanejo, James Dickey, Rumi,
Movies: City of the Lost Children, Amores Perros, The Big Lebowsky, Howl's Moving Castle. I just saw Our Man in Havana, and it was hilarious.

From farther afield... Café Tacuba, Aesop Rock, Neutral Milk Hotel, Pixies, Sonic Youth, La Santa Cecilia, Dvorak, Bach cello suites, Stevie Wonder, Fats Waller, Thelonious Monk, Los de Abajo, MC Solaar, Ceschi, Os Mutantes, Bob Wills...
Music, movies, poetry, and books are important to me, and I love finding new ones.
