My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
whoa was my profile in need of updating! OK, here's the low-down- I'm moving to Peru at the end of the summer to help build a shamanic permaculture retreat center/eco-village. I'll be living totally off the grid for a year! And I'm a girl who likes her comfort, so this will be the most challenging undertaking of my life. And I'm so ready for it.
Sooooo, that means I'm probably looking for a casual romance or a new friend to enjoy my last summer in PDX with. I'm looking to share presence, laughter, affection, caring connection and adventure; a Beloved for a season. I'm the type of person who can drop right in to sharing authentic self with the cashier at the grocery store or the person sitting next to me at the coffee shop. Nothing forced; just self awareness, compassion, presence and authenticity.
I'm not interested in a hook-up, one night stand, or friend with benefits, as those types of arrangements are not nurturing to my spirit at this time in my life; I want something much more relational, even if it is casual and short-term. Does that make sense?
Help make my last summer in PDX a swan song to remember.

Nature lover, Music lover, Animal lover; I am learning how to communicate with both plants and animals. I love to dance, cook with love for people, garden, spend time in nature, make ritual and make art. Interested in cultural creativity, healthy living, sustainability, taking care of Mama Earth, creating community, and traditional foodways including fermentation.

Friends say I'm deep, heart-centered, creative, joyful, funny, connected, quirky, enthusiastic, and wise in uncommon ways.

Other words to describe me are: Good communicator, passionate, compassionate, playful; Strong, independent, community-minded, environmentally and socially conscious, capable, yet flexible and able to compromise and co-create; giving, loving, affectionate and caring partner and great cook;
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Making major heart-centered changes! Currently, I am trying to learn how to live more simply, move away from the gross commercialism that pervades our culture and move towards living my authentic values. I'm in the process of selling 90% of my material possessions so that I, my cat and my dog can go volunteer in Peru to help build a consciousness based transformation permaculture eco-village retreat center (that's a mouthful!)
This summer, I hope to spend much more time in nature, explore swimming holes of the area and go camping, at least a few times. Would love to explore some areas of Oregon I haven't visited.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Re-wilding myself; helping animals become balanced and express their highest selves, growing vegetables, making homemade pickles, kimchi and saurkraut (lactofermentation), cooking super healthy food that tastes amazing, self-expression, weaving together disparate ideas, people, etc, nurturing relationships and compassionate communication, dancing from the inside out, and getting stray wild birds out of enclosed spaces with a minimum of fuss (bird whisperer :), dispensing with or stretching the rules for a noble purpose, and not just for the sake of breaking them.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
my animales
homemade lacto-fermented food
music-all of it
dance- all of it
green things like moss and trees
natural bodies of water
natural beauty
mindfulness and concious breathing
exclamation points and parentheses
re-defining '6' to meet my needs
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
nature and beauty, my animales, what I'm going to cook for dinner that is both delicious and nutritious, and what we need to do, to transcend our current global predicament and evolve, both me personally and the human race
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
being atypical. trying to figure out how to dismantle racism and the corporate machine.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
that I sometimes catch myself thinking about my life as if I were telling my story to Ira Glass, host of This American Life
and am easily disheartened when it comes to dealing with technological problems (see favorites above), although not easily disheartened in other areas
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
a) Because it's Summer!!! Wouldn't it be more fun to spend it with someone?
b) you read this and were like, "whoa, she's kinda different, I'd like to get to know her more" or you felt a sense of anticipatory excitement from any part of my profile.
c) you appreciate a curvier woman with an apple-shaped body who is comfortable in her skin, engages in healthful practices b/c she wants to, not to lose weight, yet you don't have a fat fetish nor do you believe that more zaftig women are desperate-- or-- body shape/size is a non-issue.
d) you're impressed by my grammarliness and not dissuaded by enthusiastic use of exclamation points!!! You understood what I meant by grammarliness even though it is a made up word; you appreciate my varied and lively syntax and your'r not put off by loquaciousness.
