My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Update:

Between working full-time and Momming full-time I have little time to give to a social life right now. That said, I identify as polyamorous/ethically non-monogamous. I joke that I am a polyamorous hermit ;) I'm not really actively looking to date anyone else at this point but I'm always open to new friends and if the chemistry were right I wouldn't rule it out.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

I am eight-feet-tall, amphibious, and feed exclusively upon Necco wafers to sustain my powers of drunken invisibility. Oh wait. Wrong section.

Oh. You're still here. Good. Okay then...

Friendly, tree-hugging, feminist, activist bleeding-heart-Social-Worker type of individual. Deep, complicated, multifarious and (I would like to think, although I joke about it) impossible to put into a box...easy to talk to, difficult to know well...with a HUGE heart.

I vacillate between having tremendous energy - trying to heal the world and everything in it...and then seeking refuge from it and going inside myself or out into nature when it becomes too much. I try to see hope and beauty in everything around me. Some days it's easier than others...but each day I feel more connected. Humbly walking a Pagan path in awe and gratitude of All That Is.

I'm very flexible and giving to others in many ways but also somewhat of a whimsical hedonist. I learned early that in order to get what I really want I had to first know what that was and then not accept anything less. I'm pretty unapologetic about that. I'm also constantly "refining" who I am and what I want out of life...it's a process as I grow in my understanding of myself and the world. I don't want to get to the end of my life and wonder why I didn't get more out of it. With that said, I don't think I'm selfish, and once you enter my circle of friends I will do anything for you. :)

I love to travel, especially off the beaten path and once lived abroad as a Peace Corps volunteer. At one point I took about three months and traveled to a dozen or so developing countries - this was probably the most formative experience of my life. I'm looking forward to doing Rotary or some other kind of international volunteer travel on a yearly basis when my son is older. I really enjoy people who don't live in a cultural vacuum.

Regarding political ideology if I had to put myself in a category I would say a radical leftist/anarchist. I hate labels, particularly the "Liberal" label. I'm a registered Green but most of my views are left of that and I would just love to scrap Capitalism altogether and be a part of something that makes more sense to me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm working full-time at odd hours (weekends/overnights) with people diagnosed with intellectual disabilities and "Momming" full-time :)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Adoring my child. Avoiding cooking. Attempting alliteration. Taking naps. Listening. Reading. Thinking outside of the box and much too much. Daydreaming. Thrift store shopping on half-price Wednesdays. Identifying what you're feeling before you do. Trying to "consume" less. Making surprising connections between seemingly disparate entities. Spending too much time on facebook and/or tumblr. Finding weird art. Amassing books in my "to read" pile. Contemplating making stuff but never actually doing it. Moongazing/stargazing. Intuiting. Attempting to be stubbornly optimistic. Wishing I were traveling alone in another random country eating their food (that I won't cook). Time warping in used bookstores. Generally welcoming serendipity and Universal connectedness into my life.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My endearing clumsiness (ha!) or the fact that I am hopelessly aloof. :D
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love to read...my favorite book is A Confederacy of Dunces - if you "get" this book we will get along fine ;) Also, Walt Whitman (Leaves of Grass is my "bible"), Heinlein, Tolkien, Herbert, Jung, Rollo May, Rudolf Steiner, Hesse, Dostoyevsky, C.S. Lewis, Margaret Atwood, Howard Zinn, Neil Gaiman, Machaelle Small Wright, Terry Pratchett. These days what is usually in my ~pile~ are nonfiction books about metaphysics, spirituality and "alternative" parenting. Titillating ehwhat?

Movies: The Monty Python movies and anything by Mel Brooks when I'm in the mood for it. Anything really psychologically mindbending (think Se7en). Foreign films, anything that makes me think or feel, especially in a novel way. Documentaries if they aren't hopelessly dull. Other favorites: Across the Universe, Blade Runner, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (original), The Wizard of Oz, Cloud Atlas, American Beauty, Shutter Island, The Princess Bride, Four Weddings and a Funeral, Curse of the Cat People, Star Wars (trilogy), Pan's Labyrinth, Chocolat, Dogma, POTC, LOTR, the Godfather movies. Oh, and anything with Kevin Spacey in it. Yum (yes, I know he's gay, leave me alone). I like other stuff too, but I'd much rather curl up with a book, or just sit outside.

Television: I don't have one. I can easily be persuaded to watch something sci fi/fantasy/nerdy online though. Also I selectively pick things on TV to be addicted to - right now it's Orphan Black (BBC) and The Blacklist. Also House of Cards (see earlier Kevin Spacey obsession). I watch these online, still don't miss having a TV...

Gaming: I'm a geek and enjoy MMORPG's when I get the chance, which lately isn't often.

Music: The Beatles, The Cult, Megadeth, Beats Antique, Coloursound, Lords of Acid, Nine Inch Nails, Gotye, Against Me, Broken Bells, Frank Zappa, Telesma, Morning Teleportation, Metal Mother, Muse, Faith and the Muse, VAST, Nico Vega, The Dead Weather, David Bowie, Of Monsters and Men, Iggy Pop/The Stooges, Bad Religion, King's X, Black Sabbath, Living Things, Godsmack, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Emiliana Torrini, Thievery Corporation, Patti Smith, Bob Marley, Tori Amos, Bob Dylan, RATM, Beastie Boys, The The, Peter Gabriel, Afro-Celt Sound System, The Smiths, Modest Mouse, Dio. Also anything involving the following musicians: Jack White, Perry Farrell, Monica Richards, Ian Astbury, Dave Navarro, Billy Duffy and Mike Patton. My tastes are pretty diverse, and fortunately my friends have great taste in music, so I'm constantly being turned onto something new. If this list resonates with you and you have some recommendations please message me :)

Food - Indian and Mexican...anything international really. American food is so disappointing. Right now I identify as a vegan, though I've been back and forth between veganism/vegetarianism/pescatarianism for the last 20 years or so. This is both a practical decision for me (I hate cooking, meat is expensive, I'm generally lazy about what I eat) and a spiritual/ethical one. I'm non-judgmental about this and you can eat whatever you want to in front of me and enjoy it. Just don't ask me to cook it or clean up after you're done if it's something I don't eat ;)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Living consciously, giving freely, being unapologetic in my passions, listening well and loving universally. Wow, that's only five. I guess I don't need much :)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Past and future lives, not overcooking my dinner, "weird" people and alternative lifestyles/parenting, what the next century will be like, transcendent sex, radical social change/activism, Africa, my next tattoo, when I will have the opportunity to scuba dive or go horseback riding again and that compassion is revolution...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working. About once a month I escape the doldrums for my live music fix or seek a change of scenery of some sort.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I never grew any armpit hair. Oh, and I'm on Fetlife. Update: I've received a number of messages from people who have never messaged me before asking for FL contact info. I'm on FL to interact with people I already know or who I really deeply connect with over a period of time, I don't give this info out by rote for a number of reasons.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are a hot Vampire Slayer or Time Lord (Lady? lol) looking for a faithful sidekick. You are local and have horses that could use some exercise. Serious on both counts.

...and/or...

You are awake and alive and feel connected to me from what you've read. What you see is what you get. Always in search of new hearts and minds to share myself with and learn from, as long as you understand and respect my current situation and know that my 6 year-old son is my world and that I'm a creature that requires a lot of space for the time being.

I really enjoy people who know who they are and are unabashedly themselves - whatever that may mean personally for them. People who are enmeshed by societal norms, don't question things, haven't taken any real "risks" in life, are enslaved by materialistic tendencies or who aren't irredeemably silly don't tend to interest me much. I also identify as a "pansexual" (not being a fan of the gender binary), but that was not an option when I signed up so I listed myself as bisexual.
