Some words to describe me would be: Open, laid back, accepting, kind and compassionate, dedicated, confident in some ways and neurotic in others, good sense of humour, intelligent, not easily embarrassed.
I identify as queer and pansexual. I also consider myself a feminist, forever attempting to shake off patriarchal social conditioning.
Travelling is something I do whenever I can. I've rode freight trains, and hitch hiked across much of Canada, Jamaica, Mexico, a bunch of the US, and this summer I went to Spain. My goal is to take at least one out of province trip every year.
I went to college for two diploma programs: ecosystems management and environmental technician, and now I harvest and grow food for a living. The deep understanding of the natural world that I gained at college has caused me to grow in a way that is patterned after nature as much as possible, rather than the traditional agricultural way.
I'm into yoga, and am contemplating taking a teacher training course to eventually run classes at my farm. I owe a lot to yoga and I am not joking when I say that it saved my life. I have recently begun practicing still meditation. If I had to pick a title to sum up my spiritual beliefs, it'd be Taoist but it still doesn't really hit the mark. I think that physical reality may be some kind of dream, trance, or illusion and that we're really all part of one organism. I realize that I am likely wrong but it's what my gut tells me. No I am not on mushrooms right now...
I like the idea of anarchy but feel that humans are generally too flawed and easily corrupted for it to work, which is not to say that I think anything currently in place is working all that great either.
