    Hi there - I love your name.
    I live a bit north of you, on the peninsula, but I have a cabin in the Santa Cruz mountains. There are amazing trails, creeks, redwood forests, and just wide open spaces...

    At work, I'm a leader. At home...I guess I am the leader too.
    I don't think of myself as a leader, more as just a loner.

    A poem for today

    May
    by
    A. E. Housman

    Yonder see the morning blink:
    The sun is up, and up must I,
    To wash and dress and eat and drink
    And look at things and talk and think
    And work, and God knows why.

    Most of the teachers I know have kids either in the school system or in the private school where they are teaching. I think a big motivator is that they can stay close to their kids while at work.
