My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
♫ My previous playlists have been overrun with ads, so here is an ad-free playlist on Soundcloud. If you like it, we might get along :). ♫

Genderqueer, poly, feminist, vegan, anarchist, atheist, curious about the world hippie seeks older similarly identified with no pets for primary partnership or other compatible folks for other types of relationships (including friends, which is mostly what I am looking for right now).

My health has been worse than usual lately (sleep issues, digestive issues, allergies), so I'm looking for lower energy hanging out. I am almost always up for talking, walks, slow biking (maybe foraging or a trip to the bins).

I enjoy dancing (contact improv), song circles, running, cooking, hugs, cuddling, writing, drawing, and computer programming. I have a particular style that involves simplifying complex things as much as possible while retaining their essence, playing with ideas and objects, and looking behind the scenes and at how stuff works.

I'm not into harsh or sarcastic communication, fat phobia, patterns of behavior that reinforce male dominance, violence, intoxication and drugs, references to deities, horror movies, or pets.

I came up with a brief test of basic human decency that is compatible with a wide range of ideology; to pass, you should unconditionally support (as a minimum) the following three policies: 1) Close (anything resembling) the School of the Americas 2) Release 50% of the US prison population today 3) Provide at least basic housing, food, clothing, and medical care for all people. Also you should be able to quickly name at least one other major human rights issue in the US today.

I've lived in intentional communities before and would like to somehow end up in a vegan intentional community with both urban and rural parts. Beyond the particular community I live in I would love to be surrounded by other folks who have a similar style of interacting with the world (hard to explain and I am still learning how to even think about such things; it is connected a little but not that much to "ideological" perspectives). Personal relationships could potentially take the place somewhat of intentional community connections and intentional community connections could potentially somewhat take the place of broader connections, but personal connections can in no way take the place of broader connections and I am really looking for all three to be significant parts of my life.

I like meeting most people (even if just once) but am not good at writing people online (I will try if you don't live near me and don't mind irregular timing). So if you are interested in meeting up somewhere ☕ then let me know when and where would work for you (I like the Red and Black).

If I star you profile I have read it (at least the part of it that shows up under quickmatch) and think we would get along somehow (not necessarily dating). I am hoping that you will read the above and, if you are interested, just suggest that we meet somewhere.

While not one of my favorite albums ever, if you are looking for cool new music check out JaySing's new album. Grey Echoes is one of my favorite songs and I love his voice :).

I like carefully made recordings and remixes; live shows are usually just a expensive way to hear low quality music unless there is a lot of audience participation (live music while dancing is really nice, though). I do really like music with group singing and usually care much more about the mood of the song than the lyrics. One of my favorite activites ever was a weekly voice only song circle (we would go around and everyone would suggest or teach a song), but I haven't done much singing lately :(.

Food 😋:
* Fruit (Bananas, Berries)
* Chocolate Soy Milk :/
* Kale or Bok Choy
* Potato
* Squash
* Dill Seeds
* Vinegar

First heat squash seeds on medium-low with a little salt. Cut up bok choy, potatos, and squash and pressure cook 25 miutes with dill seeds and vinegar and water to cover. Save the green part of the bok choy to add at the end. This is most of my diet these days; as much as I wish my digestive system would let me eat more stuff, it never stops tasting delicious.

Full size bok choy is usually the least expensive organically grown veggie and luckily also one of the tastiest. The secret to preparing it is to wash each leaf individually because it collects dirt really easily. At least until you get to the tiny new leaves in the middle, which you can usually wash together and taste wonderful raw. The green part makes an excellent salad too (really, it all tastes wondeful raw or cooked).

My favorite way to cook kale: wash, cut up (include the stems or eat them raw), sprinkle on a little soy sauce, and cook on medium until bright green, just a couple minutes. The trick is getting the right amount of soy sauce; you don't need much and it tastes extra wonderful! Not that it is that bad if you don't get it just right :). Since soy sauce hasn't been getting along with me, I've found salt and vinegar to be an acceptable substitute.

I have a broad view of vegainsm and will not knowingly purchase any products from these companies due to human rights violations:
Dole, Chiquita, Del Monte, Nestle, Cargill, ADM, Hershey, Mars, Barry Callebaut, Coca-Cola, Walmart.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Then capitalism means that there a few who have great wealth, but they did not win a prize, or find a treasure, or inherited from a parent. They obtained that wealth, rather, by exploiting the work of the many.
--Sixth Declaration of the Lacandon Jungle

If you haven't read the Sixth Declaration (or haven't read it *recently*), I highly recommend it. It isn't short, but you can easily split it up over a week and not need to set aside too long any single day. "This is our simple word which seeks to touch the hearts of humble and simple people like ourselves, but people who are also, like ourselves, dignified and rebel..."
