My self-summary
I experience so much of life through touch and being present in my body- swimming, sunning, caressing, kissing, biking to exhaustion, carrying awkward loads, the cold of rain, the resistance of wind, the stillness of meditation, the excitement and comfort of looking into someones eyes, the abandon of rest. The more vividly I feel my body the more my mind holds steady.

Everyday I look for a little piece of magic, a flicker feather, a beach agate, the scrabbled song of a hummingbird, a warm patch of sun, a wild berry, an owl pellet, the glitter spot where the sun hits the water. If I like you, I will tell you about these moments of magic and bring you bits of evidence in the hope that you too will feel that upwelling, that expansion in your chest, spreading each rib a little bit farther apart. I string these moments together like breadcrumbs. When I am lost I follow them back to the source.

I believe in revelations. Information that filters through the intricate web of my subconscious to pop out fully formed, incontrovertible. Sometimes meeting a person can be like that. Afterwards all the colors look a little truer. I feel one step closer to myself. And I wonder how could I not have known them before? I am always watching for revelations.
What I’m doing with my life
noticing, feeling strongly, finding secret spots, telling and listening to stories, experimenting, thinking, reading, cooking, scavenging, sewing, drawing, walking, writing, and laughing at myself

I have a partner martince and a 5 year old daughter. I spend much of my time with our daughter. We all shine like stars, together and independently. We date others as individuals, and welcome our metamours into the larger body of our community.

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

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

This fall I planted a bunch of native seeds I gathered over the summer in a flat, and now they are sprouting. So I move little seedlings around, knowing I have nowhere to put them because my little slice of earth is already full of other plant friends. Still it is so fun to watch them grow out of last summers backpacking trips.
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, being friends with plants, invertebrates, mushrooms, and children
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I went on a big Octavia Butler binge this winter. I couldn't get enough.

Some other favorites:
Ursula LeGuin
Barry Lopez
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.)
Paul Sheppard

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 that 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. I do love to go see my friends play shows though.

most of these statements reflect you inner truth:

you love your body.
you know riding a bike is the closest thing to human flight.
you are continually clawing your way out of the pit of societal norms. you dance with abandon.
you want to go outside, even in the winter.
