Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like to think of myself as laid back but in all honesty I
probably have too many strong opinions on things for that to be
true. I find okcupid to be a little soul sucking. I'm very much a
luddite, and I consider myself social —but I'm anti social media
and I don't do smart phones well. I prefer real interaction. I'm an
INFJ, and I find it surprising how much the description fits
I grew up in a small town in the hills of the Oregon coast range. I
had space to roam. I had freedom to pursue whatever struck my
interest knowing I would have the full support of my parents. I
chose not to take the typical path of school, college, job. I
started My first real job at age 12 And have been working ever
since. At this point I'm in my second career.
My brain and my heart are the two things that define me most. The
way my brain works has dictated what choices I have made and lead
me to follow the non traditional trajectory of my life. My heart

continuity between my heart and mind. It's a daily practice.
I'm a very verbal person, when discussing something complex I have
a tendency to think out loud.
I probably dance in my room by myself more than most people.

I grew up being read out loud to on a regular basis, this instilled
a great love of books and reading. As a younger person I enjoyed
Watership Down, The red wall series, and the His Dark Materials
Trilogy. As an older person I have been blown away by books such as
The Heart is a Lonely Hunter by Carson Mccullers, Mating by Norman
Rush. Hermann Hesse is also on the list among others I can't think
of right now. I dig non fiction too such as Joan Didion, Wendell
Berry and Berry Lopez. I very much enjoy reading the Sunday times
in the morning over breakfast.
