My self-summary
Is there anyone on here that cares about social justice?? This is essential.

Now that that's been taken care of...

> I am very intellectual, devoted to social and political liberation for all.
> I love somatic dance, movement, yoga, and contact improv.
> I am playful and silly and whimsical, but also levelheaded.
> I tend to be introverted when getting to know people but open up once I do.
> I’m an INTJ/P; enneagram 4/5.
> I love folk music and autumnal weather, as well as snow (though we don’t get that on the west coast!).
> I love the fog, the sunshine, slow mornings and hot beverages, hopefully cuddled up with a friend or a lover.
> I am dabbling in Witchcraft/Paganism. I love the idea that each sabbat (Pagan holiday) corresponds to some modern traditions that have been transformed in one way or another to reflect Christian/secular holidays.

You should message me if
something in my profile resonates with you

you're (com)passionate, kind and socially aware (i.e. not racist, misogynist, ableist, homophobic, fatphobic, transphobic etc.), willing to learn, and have a sense of humor/play

if you know the term "neurodivergent" big bonus points to you!!
