I'm a part-time teacher, editor, and storyteller from Princeton, New Jersey. I live with my husband, one of our two daughters, two cats, and a bird. I speak English primarily but can be understood in French or German. I love theater and folk music and books - lots of books.
Even though my husband is retired and I'm not, quite, it turns out I'm the one who likes to travel. I've been doing one not-very-ambitious trip per year, on average. I like to settle in one place and go exploring. Not big on night life - day trips are more my thing.
As a guest, I'm usually pretty quiet. I do tend to get up once or twice at night, so let me know if you don't want the toilet to flush at 3 a.m. I hope to be busy enough not to be much bother. I love staying with people who have pets, as I think anything that's fun without animals is even more fun with them.
I hope you'll think of other things you'd like to know about me. Feel free to ask questions.
