chicago and milwaukee owned most of my 20's, school and doing what kids do and then some. i've been living collectively in various coordinations throughout 'adulthood' (arguably beforehand as well, chore charts run deep), and have traveled a good deal through the lower 48 on performance tickets (perpetualduskatcurtsycaverns.bandcamp.com --- for a sort of listen) and this for some dated reading (http://issuu.com/plumberriespress/docs/tiptown_-_perry). i've fumbled my way into a teaching position in (more or less) rural ohio and am constantly missing punks and degenerates. i've streaks of anarchist, activist, artist, pagan, witch, queer, poly, etc. all running through me... and miss having folks close who can at the very least relate if not teach and/or passionately volley with me.
i'm conscientious and considerate, engaging and (mostly) articulate. i can sometimes be a handful in terms of too many ideas at once... but i'm generally able to offer myself to a conversation on almost anything. i miss late night discussions that mean something. i miss parties with a purpose. i miss non-biological family and closed-loop systems. i miss. i miss. i miss.
also, to be upfront and crystal clear, i am currently in a committed non-monogamous relationship with an amazingly talented and intelligent person who has decided to keep off of this site for sake of it being mostly a wash of cis male drooling and dumb tongues. they tired of sifting the junk, but might resurface someday or other for you to bask in the glory when the essays and theses are sweetly snuffed out.
again, i am very much alien in the town i live in and long to know folks who are open-minded/conscientious/creative/driven/community-oriented in the cityscapes near and beyond... would love to hear what was happening in cincinnati/dayton/hamilton/richmond/yellow springs/covington.
i feel as though this is all over the place, and i apologize. it is difficult, as you know ,to summarize the multitudes in any one of us into these little boxes, but thus is the way --- the digital self portrait is an art of its own. either way... beyond what what i have thought to give as initial impression --- please do inquire at will. i'm actually quite articulate when the opportunity to be so seems a promising one.
