I'm playful, enjoy how I'm creative, like to cook, swim/snorkel/paddle, shoot pool, loved many years teaching public school science classes and other creative careers, enjoy Lonely Planet-style travel (not everybody's favorite), conservation-minded, share a house with U. Mich. grad students, and am appreciating closeness in friendships. Pickerel Lake is a beloved, grounding spot for me in Washtenaw County. I am a close friend to a few men, women, and children. I appreciate a sense of humor, thinking (from initial to elegant), and I realize closeness can be a good challenge to the lure of habits. I'm in reasonalby good shape, and generally shy about dancing.
