Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.

NOTE: i'm one of those folks who views chat as the smallest way to start up a conversation. I think the biggest problem with okc is that there isn't a clear sense of what the proper order of contact is.

For me, i feel most comfortable with:
1. we notice each other's profiles, with the intention of meeting people with common interests.
2. maybe we "favorite" or "star" each other...
3. i often say hi with a chat, i'm not trying to be creepy, i'm trying to do the equivalent of saying hi at a cafe. I'm not trying to be invasive, and i respond REALLY well to "hey i'm not into chat, please write me a note"And honestly you should know that i have a ton of female friends since childhood and seek platonic connections as well as potential love.
4. if we get along on chat, that's a good sign for me that an in-person might be fun. Chat gives us the opportunity to have a little bit of a back and forth.

one apology: sometimes i don't remember if i've said hi to someone before. i know woman get harassed on here. if you feel like i've said hi a few times and you are not into it, you can totally let me know and i won't be one of those entitled assholes who thinks they deserve your time.

I want to heal the planet through Permaculture, Design, Culture-Change, Carbon Farming, and Drought Proofing. I ultimately would like people to collaborate with- seeking friends and loves who want to have our lives be giving to the earth.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
i want to put 100ppm of co2 back into the organic matter of the topsoil. Nothing else really matters in light of climate change and all of it's effects, huh?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
talking, design, patterns, communication, changing and learning, reading, harvesting plants and seeds, being amazed by everything, seeing all things as the same system, being confused, being certain
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
people usually think i got a weird new haircut. nope, it just changes it's style on it's own every day.

or that i'm so excited about something
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
i like stories that work on many levels. i like things like plant ecology, ecological design, antrhopology, economics, art, history. i like thinking about thinking. and i get excited learning about what get's someone else excited!

I like berries, i like nettles, i like peas, i like figs, i do eat meat but know that it's a life.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
watersheds, fire ecology, grasslands, succession, supercontinents, culture
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

i've been geeking out on systems theory and realizing that humans run at 100w
the average work a human does
weather turning food into heat or riding a bike
that's our energy level
if you are super-fit you can get to 150
and since it takes 10,000 hours of practice to become great at something...
that means it takes a total of 3.6 gigajoules of energy to make an expert
which is about as much energy as an average washing machine uses in a year
i was thinking about how making things and making patterns are the best ways to store that hundred watts
if you just watch tv you are basically just turning that into heat
but when you, for example, make goat cheese, you are using the milk and culture as a kind of battery to store some of your energy
and
if you want to gather enough energy in 10 years through the net productive of photosynthesis you only need 1000 square feet of leaf or algae surface
in the PNW
that's all
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
so i've generally been one for the "sit in a cafe, with espresso, telling life stories and passions." but i don't feel like that as much anymore. I am sooooo busy but usually busy with activities.

So here is a list of activities that i'm wanting to do and it would be fun to meet someone while doing them:

- get paper and pens and draw like how we all did when we were five
- build a compost pile
- sheetmulch my apple tree
- collect plants for propagation
- harvest lupin seeds along the burke-gillman
- wildcraft berries in a park
- go somewhere and draw
- visit the village sites mentioned in: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seattle_before_the_city and learn the names, layout, and stories of those places and communities
-walk between all of the hills in town

it's not so much that i'm great at all those things- i'm not - i just want to start doing them more!
