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 folks who have visionary, expansive creative
minds. 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 have the potential capacity for relationships ranging from
platonic friendship, to casual-but-sincere sexy-friendship, to
solid romantic partnership. I am in a dedicated romantic
partnership [and I'm not on here to angle for threesomes, don't you
worry]. 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 first created this account to connect on a platonic friendship
level with kindred spirits/comrades, and that goal still holds.
Romantic chemistry happens organically. 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.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a witch and I am a channel.
I am compelled to create / co-create art that gives voice to
unspoken emotional necessity, embodied empathy, intuitive wildness.
I am in a deep love affair with butoh, a practice which has
liberated my body and galvanized my artistic and spiritual
evolution. I also keep a humble daily practice in fusion bellydance
techniques and vinyasa flow yoga. I sing, and am stepping more and
more into my musicality. 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. And I write, lots.
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 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.
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.

Books include -
Imajica, Clive Barker. American Gods, Sandman, Neil Gaiman. Just
about anything Jonathan Safran Foer touches. I was raised on
I'm a sucker for a good burger and fries, ideally paired with a
bloody mary [yep, at dinner.] Big love for reubens, really good
Ethiopian, phở.... I am actually really into food / the ritual of
going out to eat, be it restaurants or food carts.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Dance and yoga, soul connection, compelling music and language,
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.
My loved ones. How can I consciously use my
voice/platform/connections/art to heal and uplift myself and my
human community. How can I be more myself.
This Toni Morrison quote and its wide-ranging applicability:
"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?
Adventure / date night, having tea with a friend, karaoke'ing, or
spending the night in burning incense, yoga'ing, dancing, singing.
