My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Dreamy-eyed and divinely practical performance artist, etc. Enamored of: woods, ocean, cozy cafes, etc etc. Seeking Portland folk with whom to share tea, adventures, heart-to-hearts.


I am looking for people who have a visionary, expansive creative mind. A sense of direction and a definite sense of self. A strong sense of "play," curiosity, joy, hands-on exploration. A hunger to communicate richly, fully, and honestly. To engage truthfully with the world around you, and to see magick where magick lies. An ability to create your own fun. An eye for and a pursuit of beauty, in a multitude of forms.

I am seeking romantic partnership, but I understand that chemistry happens organically. I first created this account to connect on a platonic friendship level with kindred spirits/comrades, and that goal still holds. Let's release expectations and enjoy the sparkly piqued-interest wonder accompanying meeting any new soul. Come as you are. We'll see what unfurls.

And in case you're wondering -- I am more of a gentle dreamer-type as opposed to a self-promoting performer. No ego battles here.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I moved here in springtime 2012 from Boston, Massachusetts, with my best friend and my kitten, hardly any local connections and minimal personal possessions, compelled by what I'd heard of the confluence of creative community and outdoorsy dreaminess.

I'm forever engaged in a love affair with art that challenges the mind and the body, and defies expectations. I have been developing my own conscious and intuitive movement practice for years, and I am now studying butoh. I keep a daily practice in fusion bellydance, and keep myself rooted and rejuvenated with vinyasa flow yoga. Music - as a framework within which to vocalize [caterwaul] and art out - is a shy, fledgling dream of mine, but it's increasingly beginning to manifest. I have also performed living statuary professionally since 2005, creating whimsical accessible street art with a child-friendly focus, though I have done far less of this in recent years. Annnnd I write. Lots.

I went to university in the Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts, majoring in English with a heavy Comp Lit bent, myth-tracing from religious systems to Victorian monster literature to modern media. I believe that myth-making and story-telling is foundational to the human experience.

I work in healthcare/education. I am blessed to be a part of an amazing, compassionate team of professionals, scientists and healers doing some very heart-centered work.

I share my home with an orange kitten named Icarus. He is big trouble and the love of my life.

I am a year-round all-weather bicyclist, and I have very strong emotions for my bike, a cute little red steel 1985 schwinn named Darla. She gets me everywhere.

I am all about the creature comforts. Tea, incense, warm homes and warm blankets, soft scented skin, wholesome food, music music music, good books, good films.

I crave adventures. I love being immersed in interesting natural environments. My most favoritest adventures have been 1. a friend spontaneously texting me at 5:00am and running away with me to a Boston harbor island during a tempest in March to watch the grey dawn, standing on the cliffs, whipped by wind and rain, and 2. camping on Prince Edward Island, all brilliant green grasses, bright blue oceanwater, and red[!!!] soil. In Portland, I enjoy the wet greenness, towering trees and luminescent mosses of Hoyt Arboretum and Forest Park. I like seeking out rocky coves along on the coast that have a Pacific kind of wildness that I am learning to appreciate. I'm not a hardcore outdoorswoman - I just need fresh air, an active body, and beautiful views as much as I need good food and solid sleep in order to feel whole and healthy.

Also also, a note about relationship structures. I am not strictly monogamous or non-monogamous - my relationships take the shape that makes healthy sense for the unique connection I have with the person or persons who have won my heart. I am currently engaged in two different partnerships. I believe that romantic affection can be cultivated sincerely and wholesomely with more than one person. My interest in open relationships, as I envision them for myself, comes from a place of understanding my own abundant capacity for love, the belief that I have much to learn from and share with multiple human beings, and an understanding of the power of romance and sexuality to facilitate and cultivate those connections.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Conscious self-creation and shaping my own path. Expressing myself through language and movement. Creating safe/sacred spaces for loved ones and also bringing levity and a wry playful perspective in times of need. Bringing levity generally, really. And being a melodramatic karaoke rockstar.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My wardrobe is cute-comfy-functional: leggings or lace tights, soft dresses, combat boots. My hair is a little curly, a little floofy, a little hobbitish, a little rats nest.

I have a presence that commands attention, without being overbearing. I can be reserved on account of shyness in unfamiliar social situations, but I am confident and comfortable in myself unto myself. I don't want fluff, I abhor friendships of convenience, let's talk, let's meet each others eyes, get to the marrow, give me some truth.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Kate Bush is my true heart.

Fever Ray. Cocteau Twins. Nick Cave's voice makes me feel so safe. Jason Webley. Florence + The Machine. Jaggery. Swans and Angels of Light. Balkan Rromani music, Scandinavian folk rock, various international indigenous and traditional music with or without world fusion flair.


The Lord Of The Rings, J.R.R. Tolkien. Imajica, Clive Barker. American Gods, Sandman, Neil Gaiman. Everything Is Illuminated, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, Jonathan Safran Foer. Wuthering Heights, Emily Bronte.


The Lord Of The Rings, Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid, Angels In America, Me and You and Everyone We Know.


Twin Peaks, Six Feet Under, Firefly.


Anything we cook ourselves, Indian, Ethiopian, local organic foods. And comfort foods! I never count calories; it's all fuel to me. I'm a sucker for a good burger and fries, ideally paired with a bloody mary [yep, at dinner.]
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Compelling music and literature, dance and yoga, substantial conversation, tea, trees, space for solitude.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to improve my circumstances, my loved ones, whatever music I'm currently drunk on, how I can make-believe whatever mundane environment I'm in isn't quite so mundane, my kitten.

Thinking about this Toni Morrison quote and its wide-ranging applicability, thinking about making choices that uplift all of us:
"I tell my students, 'When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else. This is not just a grab-bag candy game."
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Karaoke'ing, at a show, having tea with a friend, or spending the night in burning incense and snuggling in a blanket reading or watching a movie.
