My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am many things, much of which can only be hinted at here.
Healer, mystic, warrior, naturalist, joker, ever evolving and growing into greater awareness and actualizatuon.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living. Breathing. Loving. Fighting. Creating. Destroying. Healing. Laughing.

Finishing an MS in Asian Medicine/acupuncture, or as I like to put it; delicately stabing people with sharp objects to facilitate healing and downloading several millennia of herbal wisdom.

Organizing fire ceremonies.

Unravelling the PTSD of our patriarchal, rapist, war-ridden culture.

Delving into a mythos of magick and sacred warriorship.

Embracing paradoxes.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Archery, climbing, being real, getting to the point, lighting things on fire, annunciating, poetisizing, making shit up, jumping into new things, rolling with the blows.

I love all things botanical and fungal (well maybe not all things), and am very versed in California native medicinals/edibles as well as a fairly handy gardener/permaculturist.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I show up and not afraid to be seen. Some say I'm a smartass, I say that's better than a dumbass, or worse still no ass.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm a big Tolkien geek, and love anything with a far-away, long-ago fantasy/sci-fi/romance theme. Also real into permaculture/ecology non-fiction, sacred geometry, holistic medicine, ancient history, and very into my Celtic roots so anything with that kind of twist, so to speak, is great. David Deida's works. I also read a lot about the prevailing international drama of our species. We live in interesting times.

Movies tend to follow the same pattern.
Not really a tv person. I hadn't really watched Game of Thrones till this past spring, and then I binged and caught up to season 4 in about three weeks. I think John Stewart is a god and deserves a Nobel Peace Prize.

Music- when I want to dance/zone in: beats antique, glitch mob, opio, lynx, etc.
When I'm feeling soulful: Loreena McKennit, Wendy Rule, Sarah McLachlan,
When I need to stomp some orcs and/or Romans: Eluveitie (Celtic folk metal), tool, Black Sabbath
Most other times: U2, Led Zepplin, Crosby Stills Nash & Young, Pink fucking Floyd (pre-Darkside), also with my Arizona upbringing I can get into some good classic country (Jerry Jeff Walker) and bluegrass now and then, plus you can't go wrong with the Dixie Chicks.

I love food from all over the world and will eat just about anything. But I'm really pretty strict about it being organic, local, and ethically raised. I've a background in ecology and sustainable agriculture, so this is one of those things that's real important to me.

I love to cook and firmly believe in the statement "women belong in the kitchen, men belong in the kitchen, everyone belongs in the kitchen, kitchen has food."
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Oxygen

Asian/Holistic medicine.
Sex & relationships.
Food and sustainability.
Water sovereignty.
Sacred geometry.
Where are we going (as a society), and why I am in this handbasket?
How and where I'll manifest my dream eco-community.

Why Jon Snow and Ygritte couldn't have had a happier ending.

The difference between flirting with intention and "hitting-on" someone, the later of which is an incredibly mysoginistic term.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Not being a typical Bay Area atypical type, whatever that means.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes I stay up late at night, gazing into the liquid crystal display monitor, answering prodding, bizarre and sometimes irrelevant questions in hopes of finding a lover.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You feel called to do so. (ie, if you "like" my profile)

If you think the tale of Luthien and Beren is the best love story evar!

If you're open to the possibility of a real connection through this medium and know that true love happens not by analyzing someone's profile and sussing out the details of their life (though important), but rather by interacting with them as two embodied human beings discovering the Divine in each other's reflection.

Also I think it's important to mention, I am philosophically open, but monogamous in practice. I'm dating someone now who's in an open relationship. She and her partner have been good friends of mine for 8+ years and everything is above board. And she knows that at any given point I may pull away sexually for the sake of a relationship- maybe with you- which is my deeper yearning. I want a deep and lasting committed partnership. Monogamy is how I tend to roll when I find some one I really love, but I also know how to do the poly thing because I have ample examples in my community of it working. It's kinda like being bi- I can go either way, though I'm mostly looking for a primary partner.
