Topologically speaking, I am a donut. And so are you.
I fall in love with life all over again on a regular basis. The world is wild, weird and constantly in flux. I'm neither naïve nor jaded. I have experienced the sacred and the profane, the numinous and the goofy. I think they're all the same thing. But for all of that, I am far more likely to ponder than to pontificate, because there's so much more to see than I have already. I think every day gives us opportunities to smash our own assumptions against the rocks of the unknown and find something unexpectedly beautiful in the remains.
I like rock climbing, bicycling, motorcycling, playing music, reading books for hours, having fascinating conversations with switched-on people, doing math, cooking breakfast foods, and petting cats. I am passionate about social justice, and try to subvert race and class privilege, sexism and heteronormativity wherever I find it - with good cheer and compassion whenever I can muster, and with stern resolve when I can't. I don't always succeed at this, or catch everything, but it feels worth trying.
Nerds take note - I'm a wildly unrepentant sapiosexual.
My amazing and wonderful life partner mortalgeek and I have recently (read: a couple years ago) spawned a tiny dictator. She and I are both queer, radical, goth-tinged-punk riot nrrrrds, and the sproglet makes us both make happy sounds and lose lots of sleep.
