My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
The facts of my life are pretty straight forward:

I am a textile artist. I like to keep my hands moving, sometimes drawing, sometimes sewing. 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. Lately I've been making zines instead of textiles.

I am a mother to a 6 year old child. I live with my partner/baby papa, martince. We have a long history together.

The people I get to know 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. I'm at my best in the wilds.

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 stand on my own two feet, and it took me a long time to learn how to do that.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
noticing, feeling strongly, 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 making small inroads into herbalism. I like to make gentle medicines from plants.

I spent two weeks in Hong Kong in February. I fell in love with 汉字和汉語。 I've been practicing.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
clear communication, swimming, dancing, drawing pictures, snuggling, being alone, sewing, growing food, making a tea for every mood, getting excited, making friends with plants, planning trips

Some favorites:
Ursula LeGuin
Barry Lopez
Octavia Butler
Carl Jung
John Steinbeck
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.)

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 classic in my life.

Can we just talk about the rest in person?

I eat anything made with quality ingredients.
