I could toss out some of my labels (feminist, sex-positive, pagan, animist, geek, queer, etc). I could talk about my history of places (born in New Jersey, moved to London, then Tokyo, then Hong Kong, then back to New Jersey, then New England, then Seattle, but my family is from Cascadia and that has always been where my heart is rooted). I could list qualities (sense of humor, shy, ambitious, intelligent, sensual). I could toss out quotes or songs that represent me. However, none of these do justice to the shape inside my skin. I think what I'll do is hold out my hands with my passions, what moves me, what lights a fire in my head, and hope that you'll be interested enough to reach back and grasp them:
I’m interested in beauty, sustainability, sex-positive culture, paganism, animism, indigenous cultures, rewilding, riddling, cartography, Sufism, politics, game design, the outdoors, body modification, sci-fi, fantasy, astrophysics, math (although I suck at it), any cool science, interstellar travel, zombie apocalypse planning, mythology, storytelling, music (listening to), and wildness.
I enjoy reading, camping, hiking, watching movies, watching tv shows, aikido, metalworking, philosophical discussions, dancing (I recently discovered blues dancing!), finding amazing music, exploring new places (local, national, and international), going to museums, going to libraries, book hunting, gaming (card, board, rpgs, console, pc), drinking tea, cuddling, sex, learning, and listening.
I love food and consider myself a superb eater. One of my favorite activities is hunting for new food sensations. Whenever I find a new place I feel like I'm in a kids novel about buried treasure. I like most foods (although seafood doesn't tend to agree with me) and I'll try anything twice.
Things I want to take up: creating beautiful masks, hunting, baking cakes, calligraphy (Western and/or Islamic), reading aloud to people, improving my wilderness survival skills.
I am intelligent, wild, and quirky
