I am a quiet, gentle non-confrontive soul. I am a lover of being naturally in nature, be it woods or water. Evenings are for drum circles and dancing around a fire. I'm considered a "jack-of-all-trades". Born and raised on a farm, back when farms were family farms. By education a social worker, by trade a woodworker/carpenter, by profession a purveyor of information (not to be confused with educator). I am a vegetarian, but not vegan - who could give up the occasional grilled cheese sandwich dunked in tomato soup or the occasional pint of Cherry Garcia.
What I’m doing with my life
My current focus is working with people around rebuilding the earth from the ground up, by regrounding in self, regrounding in nature, and regrounding in community. I am very active in our local economy movement, at this time focusing primarily on local currency. I'm also active with intentional community, be it urban, suburban or rural.
I’m really good at
Procrastinating. Not really, but hope to get around to working on
The first things people usually notice about me
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I have a four page bibliography of books and another four pages of
movies - most of them documentaries focused on sustaining our
environment, alternative economic systems (think buy local),
developing interpersonal relationships, alternative lifestyles and
intentional community. I like most music. Favorite food? As long as
it's veggie and not from a superchain...
The six things I could never do without
Music, music, music, music, music and music. Music could be
classical, jazz, bird songs, my local musician friends, the wind
right now in the pine trees outside my window, osprey chatter, my
cat purring. Oops, have to add a seventh, maybe most important -
rhythm - be it drum, heart, earth, life...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I used to constantly think about what I wanted to be when I grew up. I recently realized, I no longer have to think about that. I don't need/want/have to grow up.
On a typical Friday night I am
Volunteering at a local creative/performing arts center.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You should message me if
I guess this is where I'm supposed to put in "key" words. Let's begin with nature, naturist, art, poly, open, spiritual, environmental, activist, local economy. I'll add more as I think of them.
