Hi. Thank you for stopping by my profile.
A bit about myself... I love reading, playing piano, going to the gym with my teenage boys, gardening, animals of all kinds, chatting with kids-- mine and anyone else's, and travel, among lots of other things. I haven't been anywhere exciting for several years but I lived abroad for a good part of my married life.
I spend most of my mornings and evenings driving my kids around town so I have become a political junky after countless hours of NPR. I work very part- time as a licensed massage therapist, and I am kind of a perpetual student, currently working towards a second bachelors in political science, and a minor in Chinese, hoping to increase grad school possibilities.
I find the idea of actually meeting someone from this website in person terrifying. It's not about you, it's me. I mostly live in fear of that split second of initial encounter. (Even now I feel a panic surge.) Much better to get to know someone in reality, but hard to do. I love writing to people and hearing their life stories, and have eventually met a couple of people, and enjoyed myself very much. I am mostly interested in finding friends and being a friend.
