I have a bit of a Buddhist lean when it comes to material possessions for possessions sake. I do have a gang of "stuff" though, but all of it serves some function.
I'm currently learning Qi Gong at home, and combining it with Yoga. Its exhilarating!
I love to make stuff, like drums, shoes, baskets, masks, rugs, shelving, polymer clay jewelry...I just love to work with my hands.
I don't watch TV (unless I'm really sick, which is extremely rare, or stuck in a waiting room) and therefore don't have cable or care to hear endless droning on about TV shows and celebrities.
I'm not into so-called "girly" stuff either, such as "shopping for shoes" and make-up. I wear make up when I perform, and occasionally heavy eyeliner.
Religiously, I consider myself pagan (note the small 'p'), with a bit of leaning towards Asatru. I try my best to respect nature and its creatures.
For me, being pagan doesn't mean that I have to accept every half-baked "New Age" concept that comes my way without some sort of first-hand proof. Some things I believe in I couldn't necessarily prove to anyone who didn't experience it with me, and so I wouldn't bother trying to convince a bunch of other people to believe in what I believe in. Hell, even with easily producible proof, I'm not going to try to convince someone. I'm pretty private about my spirituality.
I've been told I have a pretty good since of humor, though I'm sure that isn't showing very well here. It tends to erupt pretty spontaneously.
I'm really not into going to dance clubs anymore; its been probably about three years since I last went to one. I prefer small shows in intimate settings such as East Atlanta Icehouse, Eyedrum, or Kavarna Coffeehouse nowdays.
I don't like breathing in cigarette smoke. This is not to say that I won't date a smoker, or go some places where smoking is allowed. I'm just saying please be respectful of my breathing space.
I'm pretty physically active, with the dancing and all, but I'm still a bit plump, especially in the belly. Doesn't gall me a bit in terms of my self-esteem. Starving is not my thing.
I'm Black. Not "African-American"-- American. And Black. If you've just gotten a bunch of preconceived notions about me starting to eat away at you because you just learned that, or if you think that I'm automatically going to be buddy-buddy with you because we're "both 'sistas'", please don't bother contacting me.
However, if you're a racially liberated individual of any religion, size, etc., and we have a lot of common, I'd love to hear from you!
I am creative, friendly, and sarcastic
