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.
