Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an ecovisionary with strong leanings towards Jungian symbolism,
good food, music, farmers markets, roadtrips, hot springs, and a
good sense of humor. I'm brainy, work with my hands, appreciate
silence, like to engage in conscious conversations, believe in
healthy hedonism and sensuality, and have a bit of a mystical
streak. I'm open-minded and don't see the world in black and
white...I know there are multiple perspectives and many different
expressions of understanding, love, art, literature, music, and
life and I like to take in as much as I have time, energy, and
interest. Holding the "tension of opposites" in conversations is
something I enjoy.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am in financial recovery having suffered through foreclosure for
two years! Re-entering the workaday world with a full-time job has
been a bit of an adjustment but I love my work energy upgrading old
buildings and providing job training for people with barriers to
employment. It's a perfect blend of "green" and social justice.
Right now every day is a re-connecting with my home, my body, and
an emerging vision that I can hold onto what I spent so many years
working for. I have an urban home and a country property that I'm
founding into an intentional community, so I'm experiencing a lot
of gratitude. I'm taking long walks, soaking in my solar heated hot
tub, treating myself to bodywork, and am spending more time on the
yoga mat. Life is good!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Engaging in conversation, fixing things, humming silly jingles that
seem to make sense in the moment (especially with people who have a
sense of the ridiculous/absurd), holding space for people to
express, hanging out and making yummy food, going on walks,
massage, and kissing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Kind of tall, brainy, big nose, cute, sensual, funny as hell,
compassionate, intense looks on my face, warmth on my face, a
complex person full of ideas. All this in a moment.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
What a huge question! I'm still new here so if I don't list my
library anytime soon please don't think I don't have any cultural
interests. Do you want quantity, or quality? I can't believe some
of the lists on this site. Am currently reading "Gathering the
Desert." Cadillac Desert is one of the best environmental reads
ever. I like Lou Reed, Rhasan Roland Kirk, Frank Zappa, David
Bowie, Sandy Denny, Nina Simone, early Led Zeeplin acoustic stuff,
all of the Woodstock album, Zero 7, Eric Satie, goat cheese
tomales, Croatian style roasted lamb with pear brandy, Canadian
Extra Sharp Cheddar, Easy Rider, almost everything by Richard
Brautigan, Home Power Magazine, everything by Margot Anand (take
note!), Light on Tantra, Lane Splitter Pizza, low hanging fruit
when you find abandoned fruit trees, home-brewed beer, and of
course sushi, garlic chicken, the History of the Ottoman Empire,
Strawbale Homes. Chet Baker love songs.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My solar-heated hot tub
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Friendly ways to subvert the dominant paradigm! Existential,
psychological, ecological, spiritual, and silly satirical things. I
would like to see the world move in a sustainable direction that's
more connected to nature and less mired in classism, racism, war,
poverty, hunger, etc. While specific ways of making improvements
are important, I think we need a full-body cultural paradigm shift.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
These days I'm often at home wrapping up a full week, making yummy
food or walking to a local restaurant, meeting up with friends, but
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you feel a connection and like to engage in deep conversations,
have a good sense of humor, and/or just want to say hi because you
think I'm interesting, cool, or cute. I am very open to new
friendships and want to take steps towards that and if something
deeper, intimate, and lasting emerges then it will come from that
