About me

Introduction I read voraciously. I meditate (zen, knitting, camping, canoeing, daydreaming--all forms of meditation in my opinion). I have a long list of places I'd like to see and languages I'd like to learn (currently working on Hindi). I try to make the world a better place.
Interests knitting, books, camping, canoeing, plants, music, latin dancing, buddhist meditation, travel, indian food, bicycling, soccer, cats
