I am a pretty easy going person. I have a lot of patience which I think comes from 15 years of teaching high school. I tend to think I have a well developed sense of perspective on life: I understand losing a phone is not a big deal. I am a bit of an introvert.My friends have told me I am hard to get to know. I like to read and hang out in book stores when I am not running, walking or hiking outdoors. Not so good at talking on the phone. Would rather meet up for a cup of coffee or a walk somewhere. I own a t.v. but it does not get turned on all that often. I have a really strong set of values that can be reduced to: be kind, treat people like humans and the way you want to be treated, people and experiences are important not things, be polite, forgive quickly, and time waits for no one.
For many years of my life, I was a competitive rower, training for an opportunity to represent the US. I learned how to work hard and be a good teammate. After all the years of training, I like to sit still: garden, knit, cook, and spend time with friends and family.
I love being a mother and teaching. I think I am relatively well grounded person although that didn't stop me from packing up and moving 1000 miles a few weeks ago.
I love traveling and being outdoors. My favorite places are places you can row and hike: London, Boston, Philly, Denver and Seattle. I love music, art, and books. Outside of loud live music whether it is the CSO or reggae, I like quiet places: outdoors, bookstores, libraries, and museums.
As far a match, I am looking for a partner. Someone who is generous, patient and who is accepting of my son. Someone who likes to laugh and maybe remind me to not take myself so seriously. I value things like intelligence, kindness, and honesty. I am looking for some to share experiences with whether it is hiking the Grand Canyon, camping in the backyard, or going to the movies.
