I grew up in a home in which a hard word was never heard. I am
profoundly non-combative. I am an arts-and-crafts-y kind of person, happy in my classroom, happy in a book, happy in the gentle exchange of ideas and points-of-view. I spent a decade of summers caring for kids in a camp for kids with disabilities. I have a special fondness for kids, animals, non-aggressive insects, and the country. I would like to find someone who is similarly non-combative, who likes kids and animals, and whose pleasures are at least occasionally intellectual.
