I am an intense, passionate, determined, artistic type. A fine artist with a graphic arts sensibility, who dreams of working on a commercial fishing vessel, or a job working with a vandercook printing press. I am a logical dreamer.
I am not afraid getting my hands dirty, which might include various types of art: from the fine/creative arts to the martial/healing arts. I have studied/study brazilian jiu-jitsu, capoeira, yoga, and massage therapy. Currently I train CrossFit, which means getting my ass handed to me, but enjoying the process nonetheless. It is a most beneficial ass kicking.
In the creative arts I particularly enjoy printmaking: reduction relief is my favorite. I draw, do ceramics, paint, and do mostly anything, but I am getting better at photography. I am perfectly at home getting fancy and going to a live theater performance, and ripping a squid in half.
I might be giving myself more credit for things, but, at times mentally hitting myself because I am not brave enough.
I find myself listening more than speaking, while I might let other have the limelight, I certainly don't like being left in the dust.
I am a social being who understands the value of not always being social, a guess you could call me a social introvert. If I take the time to extend my energy towards a person or a thing, I hope that thought and energy gets reciprocated. I am not the type who needs to be attached to someone else's hip all the time. I do appreciate connection, interaction, understanding, and humanity.
My friends say I am more of a hobbit than an elf.
