I'm a physics grad and professional computer geek who's more passionate about trees than processors. So several years back I moved out of the San Francisco area suburbs and into my own little paradise outside Seattle. It's a wooded horse ranch under mountains and open sky. I love it. I'm working on replanting the forest that was once used to graze cattle. The local deer and elk like it enough to have moved in now. It's a magical place, not just because of the physical beauty, but because of the friends who have gathered around it.
I'm strongly polyamorous. I believe that people are not property and kisses are not contracts. I have a girlfriend who lives in Olympia, and few casual play partners. I'm open to new connections in whatever form they take. Note that being poly does not mean I'll date (or sleep with) anybody. Actually, it means I'm rather picky, and am looking for wonderful people that bring something unique and different from what I already have.
I consider myself to be a very spiritual person, though I'm a member of no particular religion. I follow my own path, with leanings towards taosim and some ties to the local pagan community.
I wear jeans and a t-shirt most days, but I adore getting dressed up to go out dancing or to a party. Though I don't mean putting on a tie (never touch the things) - my idea of dressing up is flamboyantly gothic, or perhaps medieval. Modern men's clothing is ridiculously dull. Women get lots of fun choices, men not so much. I don't care, I'll wear ruffles or mesh and swashbuckler boots.
My motto is "Anything for a weird life."
And I was raised by cats.
