My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a curious and joyful person, equally at home wandering aimlessly through remote places at night and sitting on the front steps watching the sun & rain. i love culture of all kinds but quietly hate the city. quiet things, trees, water and campfires appeal to me immensely. I expect a lot, but will accept whatever i find.

who are you? that's not a rhetorical set up, I'm not about to describe my ideal person. i love people and their stories & idiosyncrasies, and generally feel like i have at least some things in common with most. so let's share some stories. the only thing I'm not interested in is a lot of falsity and fakeness. there really is no good reason not to be as real as possible.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
exploring. trying to balance art, spirit, and physical necessities. working as a therapist. finishing the last leg of grad school (for now, anyway).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
music. I've been studying/playing guitar (classical - bach to romantics to tangos to modern madness - jazz, folk, punk, metal, whatever) for 16 years or so. I have a BA in Music & used to spend 12 hours a day practicing. I also (almost) have a MA in creative arts/music therapy.

i'm a half decent poet, but only half. i've done a lot of poetry mic kind of things, and was a visiting poet once for an undergraduate class. but i haven't published anything (perfectionism, one day i will overcome you).

i'm not into hurting people (except in good fun) but i HAVE been studying martial arts since i was 7. Aikido, Isshin-Ryu Karate, Kempo, some Judo, some wrestling, Taijijuan (the 'standard' Yang style and, for the past ~3-4 years, martial Chen style), a very small amount of Baguazhang and a similarly small amount of capoeira. i've been practicing qi-gong since I was 12, yoga since I was born, and I meditate every day. I used to be in an amateur MMA league (read: fight club) with my friends in high-school, but I don't watch UFC anymore. i don't know, it got too 'roided out and bro-y.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
books
music
free time
open sky
oxygen
trees
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
minute details of musical experiences, psychological traps that i get myself into, complex rhythmic patterns, syntactic jokes and anomalies, whether time actually exists (pretty sure it's a figment of our imaginations. one of these days i'll figure out how to travel sideways in it.)
