I speak the Irish language and am currently teaching 3 classes for it in Seattle and Everett. I have a long-term dream of creating a non-profit Irish language and cultural organization in the greater Seattle area. Right now, though, I'm just teaching some classes, and some private lessons.
I am currently in a band, hoping to record soon, and eventually play local gigs and festivals. I play a Celtic harp, and am learning a few other instruments.
Since I moved to the west coast, I've gotten very hooked into dancing, especially same-sex partner dancing (ballroom, Latin dancing, Argentine Tango, Swing dancing (east, west, and Lindy), and other social dancing. I am VERY INTERESTED in finding someone queer to dance with. I can lead or follow in many dances, though I'm 5'2", so I can't lead people bigger than about 5'7". I tend to be better at following because I get more practice in it thanks to my height. ;)
I am a polyamorous lesbian. I see polyamory as an orientation for some people, including me, and have been active in poly dating for a long time. This means my natural inclination is to fall in love with more than one person at a given time, and I have many years of experience dating more than one person at the same time, both in multi-person units and as separate relationships. I think trust is sexy, and can only make things work with people who are capable of trusting someone in an intimate relationship.
I am open to gender queers and transgender people, depending on how compatible we might be in other areas. I'm very much not into assigning anything by gender roles (man/woman, butch/femme, etc.). I am very much into whoever wants to do it and has the skills to do it should do it.
I am a Celtic Reconstructionist Pagan, sometimes also part of how some people understand the term Druid. For years I was also a member of the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism), but at this point I have too many other priorities. Though I would be pretty excited to find places to dance early dances, and to throw axes (NOT in the same place ;) ). Other interests I have and want their keywords in my profile include: Gaelic, Celtic, Pagan, Early music, Pagan music, songwriter...

In the interest of full disclosure: I also live with some chronic health issues, which add some limitations that fully healthy people may not always have much patience for. I have a very restricted diet due to food allergies, which can make it challenging to find a restaurant where I can actually eat without getting sick (they do exist, but it takes some looking around). I have a few other limitations too, that I am more likely to talk about in person rather than post to an online profile. I will say, I take responsibility for my own issues and do not try to make it anyone else's problem. However, my limitations are real, and I try to be clear about what they are and how they affect me at any given time.
I also try to limit how much time I spend online, so if I'm slow to respond to you here on OKC, please don't take it personally. I may in fact think you are extremely awesome once I meet you, but I'm only on OKC somewhat sporadically.
