I don't put other people into conveniently labeled little boxes so
I think I will skip doing that to myself for the moment!
I am a radical feminist with a keen nose for any hint of creeping
patriarchy, the silent killer. That said, I am also a yogi who
believes that anger is an acid that does much more damage to the
container holding it than to anything it is poured on.
I try not to start grasping.
Even to the idea of putting down or letting go.
And there is one thing I know
That is that I
Will never reply
If you fill in none of the detail
Required for this kind of retail
Dating where the only shot I have
At any advantage
When a co-operator is faced with
The competitive nature
Of those sporting the y chromosome
Is if I have the advantage
Of forethought in our interaction
So no pics and not stats?
I say absolutely no to that.
What I’m doing with my life
I have no idea! I an in a place of transition and flux... I guess I would call it a midlife crisis except that it isn't a crisis. I am open to what comes and facing my uncertain future with open eyes and open arms even though it can be scary.
I have recently combined my two best girls, activism amd direct education and sat at the table with the two, as well as my obsession with food... A boon to my friends and family! I am a chef at a local organic market. No, I don't get to feed anywhere near to most people, probably not even most tourists here in the beautiful Berkshires.
And now that that part is old, I have added in the last piece of my farm to table puzzle. I am working selling wines wholesale for a smal distributor that deals only with family owned and operated wineries, primarily from South America.
I’m really good at
Connecting with people so they feel valued for their humanity, even
if they are strangers. I like to listen to people telling the
stories that shape who they are and how they see the world.
I am an excellent teacher of all things food, from production to
Looking much better than I appear in photos, I have recently
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes, which are apparently too intense for most people to deal with...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read A LOT. Urban fantasy, sci-fi, speculative fiction,
biography, philosophy, cookbooks, literary journals. I am intrigued
by all of the ways there are to be a human experiencing a corporeal
existence on this big blue ball. I have never had cable, but I like
movies. I read enough that I don't spend much time on them. I
really enjoy good, semi-professional live theater, so living in the
Berkshires is a treat. I love to cook, always have, and have a
great fondness for homemade food. I also think that everything
tastes best when it's made with focus and attention by someone
else! I am a huge Ani Difranco fan and have been known to quip that
there are times that I feel like she has written the soundtrack of
my life, as absolutely dorky as that sounds. I should probably
mention here that I love slam poetry and most other forms of spoken
word. Music is generally really important to me and I think that "
if it sounds good it is good" in the words of Duke Ellington. I
listen to a pretty broad range of styles from funk to bluegrass to
hiphop to jazz to punk. I am a sucker for a good lyric set over a
funky dance beat. Lords of Acid and Balkan Beat Box are at the top
of the list for the moment.
I disappear from the world for the month of April, annually, to
The six things I could never do without
The six things I could never do without? I try really hard not to be too attached to any things! But I guess my car... Because of the freedom it represents. And the mountain I live at the base of, for the refuge it provides. My yoga mat, because of how centered and certain I feel when I use it. My water bottle, because I try to refuse single use. My journal, around which I truly try to organize my self. And my mattress, that lets me recover overnight to get up and do it all again!
And that is not to say my kids and my critters are not important, I just don't think of them as things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whether a relationship that is full of kindness AND kink is simply too paradoxical for this life.
What is the question, since the answer is 42.
When I will be hungry again.
How far I will run next week.
Who the fuck am I?
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading a book or dancing my ass off!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am not very private... So ask me something and I will let ya
I think I find it difficult to come to orgasm with another person
paying attention to the fact that I am. It's a stretch to even type
You should message me if
My so far profile doesn't make you want to run screaming... Or
maybe if it does! Hah! But really if you are into live music, a
good conversation, going out for a coffee, taking a walk or a hike,
catching a movie, whatever. And especially if you are curious about
life, the universe and everything. And you would enjoy an exercise
