I love to paint and garden. I'm pretty gregarious yet appreciate and relish time alone. I'm easy going and have a good sense of humor. I love being outdoors. I do love my bike and took it to Cape Cod and Nantucket, where I stayed at youth hostels and went out and painted and explored every day. I live on the earth and link up with the net, and my nickname is tallitot. I work with children at an elementary school as a teaching assistant and also run the afterschool program. I am in a paralegal certificate program and looking forward to an internship this summer and a job change. My daughter lives on the West Coast, and my son is a sophomore at Harvard. Family and friends are very important to me. I like sincere, down-to-earth people, who respect themselves and the rest of the world.
