My self-summary
I'm GGG. I'm one of those "creative types" you were warned of. I'm a feminist. I'm a fan of Italian slasher movies & Marcel Proust, grim German philosophy & Harry Potter.

I was raised in Norway, born in New Jersey, spent my adolescence and young adulthood in Albuquerque and now live in Boulder. When people ask me where I'm "from," I must admit I have a hard time answering...
What I’m doing with my life
I've just started grad school, in pursuit of an MA. Aiming for a Doctorate in Literature/Philosophy, with an eye toward professorship sometime in the distant future.

You can read my first published novella here, at the Weird Tales website: http://weirdtales.net/wordpress/2009/01/09/renovations/
I’m really good at
Conversation, making people laugh, coming up with terrible notions, devil's advocacy, listening, reading. Some other things you may get to know if you so desire. I'm also rather good at being awkward in large gatherings.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall, and depending on the surrounding humans that can kindof stick out. Hmmm... Well, before I took to shaving my head, people would always tell me some variant of: "You look like you read alot," or "You look really smart." Which was, all in all, kinda irritating. Now they probably notice the all-black Hamlet/gothy thing.

The six things I could never do without
Books, companionship & love & sex, a means to express myself imaginatively, conversation, cats, hope.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Literature (mine as well as that of others). Philosophy, film, mysticism. The Buddha-nature. Nightmares. Sexuality, relationships and gender issues.
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading, watching my Netflix, sometimes a party or a show downtown. Writing. I try to sit zazen every night, or at least every other night. I tend to be at the gym on Friday nights because it's so dead. I also try to raise the dead some Fridays, but that's just every third week...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I lived in a four story (including labryntine basement and arched, almost melodramatically moody attic) growing up. I don't know if it was only a matter of childhood imprinting or whatnot, but that house has always (and will always) stay with me. Jung once wrote that a house in one's dreams is usually a symbol of the self and the exploration of one's manifold possibilities, and I grok that. When I was in my teens and we had moved back to the good old US that house blossomed in my dreams, growing unfathomably large and sprouting strange new fruit. I see my job as a writer as plucking that fruit.

It is also possible there is a rather more prosaic, embarrassing (probably Freudian) interpretation of this dream.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 25–40
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
Write me if you enjoy good conversations, late night walks, reading together, sharing creative projects, going out to eat, staying in to enjoy the company of a lover, exploring and expanding your horizons, or plotting to overthrow the current paradigm.

Write me if you are either familiar and comfortable with polyamory or if you feel you could potentially enjoy a relationship of this sort. My relationships tend to be autonomous, but filled with communication. They also tend to be filled with v's and t's and w's. How's that for cryptic?

While I am open to a FWB situation, I'm really looking for an intimate relationship right now. I'm into honesty, to a fault, really. Being honest blows lying out of the water any day. Unless you've got Anne Frank hiding in your attic. Then lying is A-Ok.

Truth to tell, I'm looking for a Lilith to my Sammael, a Kali to my Shiva, a companion and co-creator... Though sometimes good company will suffice.
