Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Very secure with being insecure. I'm insecure with being secure. I
am authentic except when I'm nervous, because it's not easy. It is
scary and generally not recognized for anybody, by anybody.
Everybody is authentic within their own selves. Authenticity is a
privilege, an experience, a circumstance. It's related to dignity,
self-esteem: can a person be authentic without self-esteem? Women
have this gift: sexuality, and though this gift is placed on a
pedestal, sexuality itself is considered an unimportant aspect of
economic life, as though business, education, politics, is more
important, not equally important. I think this misunderstanding is
so very destructive.
I am still, still, and unintentionally loud
On a less metaphorical note, I love to cook healthy food. I just
lost my huge wooden salad bowl which doubles as my serving bowl.
It's about 16 inches wide. I just love wholesome food, meaning food
with life and vitality - the opposite of industrial food. I avoid
chemicals in my food.
I think clock radios are a terrible invention. When people were
farmers, waking to the cycle of the days was more of a natural
process. Doing it artificially becomes poison for the soul. We
ought to have 20 hour work weeks and carefully dismantle our
The more I get older, the more I only have time for meditation and
exercise, a few close friends and family, and my incessant work. (I
guess like most people I work more than 20 hours a week. But my
life is a contradiction in that in order to avoid an office
environment where I don't have a clock radio waking me up every
day, so I can sleep whenever I need, I also have to work long hours
because I'm a freelancer. But I can work from anywhere with an
internet connection and a comfortable couch.)
I don't have any chairs in my apartment except for fold-up chairs
for visitors. I have lots of meditation cushions though, and I whip
together little couches made out of futons and buckwheat pillows
laid down on my tatami mats.
I seek physical environments conducive to the best in the human
spirit. I think this is about the most important thing there

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You haven't had an easy life either by choice or circumstance, or
you don't define yourself by the life you must live to get an
education or a job (if you have either of these) and you have some
sense that your poverty (whether from too little or too much) is
not your fault (because it isn't) ... I like that phrase used in
yoga classes everywhere, "Namaste", which carries the innuendo
"peace", but I don't think yoga classes are the way to peace until
they become free of charge and less pretentious. If you agree maybe
you should message me.
