Hi, I’m from California and have lived Washington state. Spent a good part of my life in the Sierras and the SF bay.

Lots of wonderfully community minded people here.

I haven’t seen anything I would call a mountain yet and not many coniferous trees. But, the landscape is pleasing. There’s great hiking and the summers are unbelievably lush. Nothing is that far away compared to Western standards, blink and you’re in Vermont-blink again and you’re in New Hampshire.

We have world class museums. The Gardner, MFA and MassMOCA are standouts. The Edward Gorey house in Barnstable is worth a trip.

I live the Pioneer Valley in Western Massachusetts. it feels like home. High concentration of Universities and Organic farms.
