My self-summary
I am a serious person, yet playful to the point of conviction. I laugh a lot, especially when I'm happy. And sometimes I'm happiest alone, absorbed in an ongoing project, sewing, weeding, walking in the wilds, reading beautifully articulated truths.

I am a textile artist. I am intimately familiar with my loom and spinning wheels, a needle rests easily in my hand. And my shelves are full of wool, much of it I've dyed with natural dyes that I grew (or better yet, gathered) myself. My mind relaxes in the meditative rhythm of detailed work.

I am a mother to a magical little (5.5 years old) girl- truly- I have received broad consensus on this point. I live with my partner/baby papa, who continues to be one of the most insightful and beautiful humans I have ever known. We have a long history together. The people I get to know well tend to stick around, and I'm proud of that. Many of my relationships don't fit into normative categories. I believe each connection has a natural level- a portfolio of intimacies- as unique as a fingerprint. I enjoy the process of feeling for this natural level and adapting as it changes through time.

I am a forager and scavenger. Some of my best friends are plants.

If I had one day left to live I would spend it swimming in the Sandy River, like a fish. Then sunning like a lizard. And hopefully snuggling someone sweet and vibrant. My spirit is centered in my body.

I grew up fundamentalist Christian and if you know anything about that you may have realized it is a philosophy of extraction, of divorce- spirit from body, insight from revelation, instinct from action. My wholeheartedness is hard won. I won it, and continue to win it a little more everyday.
What I’m doing with my life
noticing, feeling strongly, telling and listening to stories, experimenting, thinking, reading, cooking, talking to plants, scavenging, sewing, drawing, walking, writing, and laughing at myself

I ride my bikes all over town, often with my daughter or some groceries added to the load.

I embroider old wool blankets. I can tell you just about anything you want to know about textiles.

I am studying herbalism and I like to make gentle medicines.
I’m really good at
clear communication, swimming, dancing, drawing pictures, snuggling, being alone, sewing, growing food, making a tea for every mood, getting excited, making friends with plants
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm reading Women Who Run With Wolves right now. It's basically Jungian archetypes in folk story form. So good, like hiking through the wilderness of the psyche with a field guide.

Some other favorites:
Ursula LeGuin
Barry Lopez
Octavia Butler
Carl Jung
Rick Bass
Friedrich Nietzsche
Judith Butler (Last winter I read the first 2/3rds of Undoing Gender about 3 times. I still don't think I have finished it.)

Lately I tend to read through a lot of books by one author when I find one I like. I keep coming back for more natural history, social theory, radical sci-fi, psychology, and fiction about western North America.

Non-Violent Communication, Mushrooms Demystified, and Cascade-Olympic Natural History are some classic books I look at regularly.

music- most anything with heart/struggle/flow Ali Farka Toure, Bach (esp. the Cello suites), Sinead O'Connor, Eddie Veder, Fela, Neko Case, Mos Def, Fleetwood Mac, Nina Simone, The Gits, The Wipers, the boss

Honestly, I don't put much energy into the music in my life. I listen to what I have. One day I'll get around to changing that. I like to go see my friends play shows.

food most anything with quality ingredients
