My self-summary
I like: Pomegranates, poets, sensual pleasures. Revolutionary politics, rock en español, rain. Dancing merengue, growing my own food, cooking you a fine meal with the food I grow.

I value: Creative, unorthodox thinkers. Empathy. Touch. Emotional nuance. Artistry. Feminism. Self-reflection. #BlackLivesMatter
What I’m doing with my life
Learning. Observing. Growing. Laughing frequently.
I’m really good at
Making people feel at ease
The first things people usually notice about me
The accent; twinkle in my eye; quick wit.

The six things I could never do without
• a guitar + music-making with others...
• awe ...
• building community, connection & relationships thru food, cooking, eating...
• inspiring comrades - folks creating alternatives to this crazy conflictual societal construct called capitalism...
• the two divine & deliciously delightful human beings who chose to be my kids...
• the knowledge that we can always be better than the worse thing we do...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
• music
• making food
• making out
• making right by the earth's beauty...responding to her true rhyme & reason...and course-correcting the contradictory, self-destructive societal habits we've unleashed upon her.
On a typical Friday night I am
Varies wildly.
You should message me if
You wanna dine, delve into deep thoughts, dance, discover dreamy possibilities.

What we share can be short & sweet...or it can be long-term & intense. Simply as long as it isn't shallow.

Worth noting: Open relationship is the current context of my dating life & I have comfortable, long-standing practice with that terrain. That said, I'm not ideologically attached to this form: closing my relationship for the right person, should they request it, is not out of the question.
