Life is a tug o' war between harmony and conflict, both of which are good teachers; I believe in being the harmony you want to see in the world, while i don't believe you can do that by turning your back on conflict.
I'm a blend of the domestic and the wild, with the wild taking a slight lead. I'm as comfy fishing as i am pan-searing fish, as comfy making a fire as sitting by one. I'm really a country bumpkin at heart, with fantasies of log cabins and running with wolves and bathing in cold streams, but i'm steely enough to adapt to the concrete jungle until opportunities arise to make a change toward fresher air.
I've reached a point in my life where I've now assigned true value to certain things and tend not to commodify or rote-ritualize them or take them for granted: friendships, romance, fresh air, fine wine, tantra, mental and physical fitness, coffee (i just had to add that in), cuddling, meditating, dancing, taking in a thunderstorm, NPR podcasts, poetry readings... If you value one, some, or all of these, let's chat.
