Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
In a room full of people, I find that the old people are, as a
rule, the most interesting ones. That's because they're not trying
to impress anybody. I aspire to that kind of freedom.
Sometimes I find myself humming the Limbo song, or doing handstands
for no apparent reason. I will dance in any venue, including in an
elevator next to the CEO. I like to be surprised by a sudden
Sometimes I write poetry. Or, more accurately, sometimes poems find
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Most recently, I've been building a little enclosure for my winter
wood supply, and trying to learn a few Japanese building techniques
in the process. It's been awesome.
I can often be found just kicking around a little intentional
community I've been living in for over 7 years. Community living
isn't for everybody, but it's been good to me; shared meals, music,
movies, gardens, cars. Plus, all the kids come here to hang out,
and with the addition of the new quarter-pipe, it's pretty much
When life gets just a wee bit overwhelming for this uber-introvert,
I go dancing. Dancing, for an introvert, you say? Oh yes, nothing
turns off the brain like dancing - good for the body, good for the
When I'm too tired to dance, I stoke up a cozy fire in the wood
stove and curl up with a nice, relaxing book about how humanity is
about to collapse.
Finally, there are the hobbies I flirt with, but will probably
never get very good at: Guitar, sailing, poetry, climbing, violin,
karaoke, and writing the next great American coming-of-age-novel. I
am "dabbling" more than "doing" these things, but I include them
here for sake of completeness.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Apologizing. Losing things immediately prior to needing them
desperately. Forgetting. Making simple things difficult. Producing
self-effacing lists of my attributes.
"Plopping" - I found this out while volunteering at a CSA one
summer. "Plopping" is laying out the starter plants in rows for
others to come along and plant.

I've fallen far, far short of my goal to gain 10 pounds.
UPDATE!!! I ate Ethiopian twice this week, and while it isn't
exactly a permanent change, I do have a cute little "food baby" to
be proud of for a day or so.
UPDATE - food baby gone :(

Center stage is Nina Simone singing "Feeling Good." Down there in
the orchestra pit is Ani DiFranco, laying down the score and
keeping everybody honest. Andrew Bird is in the background pouring
out wonderfulness. Around them is a constellation of bands that
come and go from memory and daily life, all of whom I appreciate,
all of whom this world would be a little dimmer without. Much love
to the music makers, much love.

I'm in an open relationship. My partner likes when I date
interesting people, and as a result, she may bake things for you.
You may find this disarming. She is not above stealing my
girlfriend for her own. You've been warned...
