I'm recently divorced from the excellent derbylittle; he and I are still good friends and spend time together when we can. I live part-time in Chicago, and part-time in Flagstaff with my dear friend danceawhirlwind. I tend to be most attracted to sensitive, emotionally available folks of any gender who appreciate strength of character and are up for adventure. The decision to leave monogamy behind has already been among the most challenging adventures of my life, and I'm quite pleased with it and the possibilities it offers. And maybe a little overwhelmed by the constant scheduling challenges. And I'd be happy to answer any questions you have about it - or! I can plug Chicago's Poly Support Group (last Saturdays, Center on Halsted, 10:30 - 12:30 am. Best discussions in Chicago!!).
In partners, I value loyalty, enthusiasm, insight, curiosity, and commitment to passions. I'm happiest when I'm following my intuition through life. It often leads me in unanticipated directions, and I support others who are on - or in the process of finding - their own paths. The label I feel most comfortable claiming is that of environmentalist. To my mind, if you like the idea of humanity continuing to enjoy relative peace and prosperity, you should be one too. Or you should be working getting another planet to live on. Or both!
In somewhat less than fifteen years, I plan to be living in a much more sustainable fashion, ideally in anearth-sheltered hobbit-hole-esque ecovillage or castle with as many dear friends, lovers, and like-minded adventurers as I can convince to join me in this great and marvelous experiment of living.
Interests include: hygge, energy work, kink, good conversations, singing, hiking, adventure, playing board games, writing, backpacking, biking, woodcarving, reading, sewing (by hand, mostly), beading, travel (anywhere), practical jokes, and public transportation.
I often think in images rather than words, which leads to some interesting poems, but also means that it can take a while for me to figure out exactly what the pictures in my brain mean, and translate them back to the kind of language we all share.
I should probably add that I am among the silliest people I know. I love my laughtergasms. Does that mean I laughsterbate? Hmmm...
