My self-summary
**update as of 11/28/15, I am planning to move back to Oregon within 2 1/2 years from now. Also, if you aren't at least a 80% match your messages probably won't pass my filters.

I'm outgoing, honest, and charismatic. Sometimes I'm blunt and funny and sarcastic, other times I can be quite serious and cynical. Most of the time I'm all of the above. I wear orthotic shoes, otherwise I'd be using a walking cane to get around, and I have other minor disabilities that are too complicated to bother with the details here, but over all I pass as able-bodied.

I'm an artiste and an artist, I see beauty in everywhere -- I am an actor, a dancer (8 years of ballet and several other styles) a (published) writer (of news articles), a candle maker, cartoonist and a copy editor. I have explored in many art forms in my life, I will be using all of them in my workshops.

I'm an activist with a passion for teaching, healing and for finding common ground. I believe in the concept of restorative justice. where both parties are healed and not punished. this is the change I want to see and be in the world. I believe strongly in non-violence in any form and peace as a primary goal for saving the human race.

My activism centers on social justice issues. I'm invested in healing from sexual abuse and domestic violence issues. I am committed to learning about and understanding racism and sexism and how they affect me. I am also committed to ongoing climate change and environmental damage. Recently I have centered my efforts around creating a 28th amendment (to end corporate personhood Movetoamend.org), and homelessness issues. As a poor, white, queer, woman with few privileges I have learned a lot in the past few years about what privileges I do have. Still I don't claim to be anything but a "po' white trash half jew from the ghettoes of west Los Angeles". I also don't claim to fully understand my cognitive disabilities fully, but I've been knocked in the head more than once and wondered about asperger's. Add the fact that I've been healed of Environmental Illness and it's hard to tell just exactly what is wrong with me. In spite of that I have an IQ over 128, the last time I looked a few years ago. A true sub-genius (points if you get that joke).

I'm genderfluid. I'm also high-femme domme. But sometimes more of a soft butch. I'm white and from a relatively lower class/mixed class background (I list this as a way of positioning myself and honoring that these things should not be assumed). I lived for three years in the Projects of west Los Angeles and later on for 8 years in low-income housing in Humboldt County. In spite of that, there has some money at times in my life. So I learned out to handle it and how it effects politics. I've had a lot of first hand insight to classism in our country which is why I work for social justice. In spite of the fact that I have been homeless off and on for much of my adult life, my activism has shown me that even a homeless person can fight for social justice and focus on change.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm looking to build my massage practice and teach workshops for Trauma survivors. Ask me about them. I wrote the script back in 1991 and it is looking like they will be implemented in the next six months.
I’m really good at
Giving relaxing, safe, nonsexual, therapeutic massages, dancing and writing, when I feel inspired.
The first things people usually notice about me
Is my big nose, and my big ass. Then usually my dimple if I'm smiling and my sense of humor. Next my sharp wit and bad manners.

Occasionally someone scratches the surface and gets to know me better, but not often. I am deeply loyal, and slow to anger, Generous when I have it to give, and compassionate to some of whom are considered the most vulnerable on earth. Lastly I'm painfully honest, to a fault.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
All you need to know is that I am not a vegetarian and will probably never be, but I do eat organically and as consciously as I can, budget allowing.
The six things I could never do without
I'm going to keep my original list here (actually 7 because it's a lucky number for me). But I'm also going to list the 7 things I could not do without in a partner, since there really seems to be no where I can list EXACTLY what I'm looking for:

1. A person who is pursuing their spiritual life with gusto. Who is open to listening to me talk about my own spiritual odyssey.
2. A CIS male partner who is genderqueer, bisexual or just not into being pigeonholed into standard orientation boxes. I like my men very feminine. My women on the other hand can be femmy, or andro, depends on the girl.
3. Someone who is looking to share a home and knows they want a place they can share with several beloveds. (preferably no more than 6 in a household). Who knows that polyamory is just a label like a hanger to put your coat on, and primary and secondary labels are an outline for framing, but not how the relationship is defined. Someone who is looking to spend space and time and practical matters (like finances) with me. Someone who understands my dreams and has similar dreams. Someone who wants to build those dreams together.
4. Someone who can show affection openly when they feel it. But doesn't need it to feel secure.
5. Someone who is compassionate and generous and driven by his passions.
6. Someone who is inclined to be submissive to women.
7. Someone who understands that I am not a barbie doll, I'm human, with disabilities, baggage, a history and a past that is rich and interesting if you have the patience to get to really know me. And that includes my health, as I've worked very hard to recovery from many hidden illnesses and disabilities and am much healthier that I would otherwise have been without that effort.

1. Clean, unadulterated air. Preferably out in the country somewhere
2. Spring water.
3. A river to swim in.
4. Good preferably organic food, but I'll settle for good food in a good restaurant.
5. The right shade of green sunglasses.
6. The right brand of lip balm.

And the seventh thing I can't live without...Love in my life!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Too damned much, like how to create domestic peace and how that relates to world peace. How to create space to teach my trauma survivor workshops. (that last one seems to be closer and closer every day.)

And what faerie kisses feel like?
On a typical Friday night I am
Time folds like an Accordian for me, so 'Friday' means nothing in my world.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I often feel like a gay man in a woman's body. I am a pagan.
You should message me if
You are a bisexual or heteroflexilbe male or bisexual female

You are crazy enough to be interested and not revolted.

You know me already.

If you are in the SF bay area of California and have plans or hopes of moving to Portland or NE Oregon.

If you don't drink like a fish or smoke tobacco (and don't even live with anyone who smokes tobacco, I'm highly allergic).

You probably should NOT contact me if you smoke tobacco, aren't comfortable with FTM's or don't understand the term BDSM. And if your under 30, don't even bother contacting me, you're younger than my own children.

If you are local, I'm looking for new friends
