My self-summary
I'm pretty independent but I would like to share my life with someone. I work, and I like my work. I really enjoy hanging out in the woods; it's something I need to do to be happy. I go to the beach as much as I can. I read a lot, mostly online.
I truly enjoy my child and he is a big part of what I do, though that is changing now that he is older and has his own interests. I am lucky that he is funny and nice and pretty responsible.
I do yoga, garden and try to eat healthy. I am interested in politics and favor the left-leaning. I am not a Democrat per se. I have been involved in lefty activism. I dislike Capitalism. I've spent a bunch of time thinking about things like race/class & gender. I hope that you have spent some time thinking about this, too. It makes for better conversations and more authentic connections. But you don't have to like politics. I am not sure that I like politics, either.
I am not into organized religion but I like to explore different ideas of spirituality.
I am not a big fan of dogs and motorcycles make me nervous. If you like them that's great, but that's not something we will share together.
I'd love to build a house. I'd like to set in a garden and grow soil.
--Please, if you are in a relationship already, do not contact me.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm working in higher education. I do it because I like to be with people who are exploring ideas and trying to make better lives for themselves. Plus: other jobs don't let you talk about race, class, gender, politics and the economy all day.
I am raising a fine boy. He's funny and smart and has good manners. He will shake your hand and look you in the eye. That stuff does not happen by accident.
Sometimes, I may be too preoccupied with obtaining and preparing delicious, healthy food.
I’m really good at
I explore social issues and encourage critical thinking.
I make the best out of most situations.
I am really good at connecting with children.
I can cook simple, healthy food.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall :)
People ask me for directions all the time.
I guess I look like I know what I am doing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite book of fiction right now is Oryx & Crake by Margaret Atwood. I read mostly non-fiction and read news articles. I am listening to John Malkovich read Kurt Vonnegut on Audible. It's awesome but I have to take breaks for days at a time.

I'm not much for movies. Don't know why. Favorites are The World According to Garp and Rushmore.

TV: Archer, Vikings on the History Channel. Used to love Mad men. Love House of Cards. Watched all Battlestar Galactica and then suffered thru all the Caprica. I liked Netflix's Bloodlines a lot.

I like a good funk show. Appalachian music hurts my ears.
Some really good shows I have seen: Les Claypool, The Roots, Jane's Addiction, Parliament, William Elliot Whitmore. I can't wait to camp all weekend at LEAF and see who is there!

When I go to the gym I listen to Parliament Funkadelic or a Ted talk. Or nothing.

Honestly, I would be happy with a steady diet of salad and ice cream, coffee and wine. I am not a vegetarian. Good food is important to me, I eat mostly organic and gluten-free. I use a crock pot. I love to grow food. I wish I had a giant garden. I wish I lived on a farm, though I am not a farmer.
The six things I could never do without
my kid (not really a "thing" but merits top of this list)
my glasses
a toothbrush
good friend or two
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whether I should have another cup of coffee or not.
Social issues and the environment.
But sometimes I just enjoy the sunset and make snarky jokes.
But really, I think too much about the structure of social institutions.
On a typical Friday night I am
Not much. I like a mellow Friday night and like to do things on Saturday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'd like to find someone who grows food and appreciates compost.
