I love tidepools, and tracks of various things in snow. I adore snails and colourful slugs. I'm unfazed by most creepy crawlies(with the utterly irrational exception of moths), and will pick up caterpillars and garter snakes without a second thought.
I'm adventurous in terms of sampling experiences, but not a risk-taker. My best memories are more a feeling of quiet awe or the comfort of friends than adrenaline and wild-and-crazy. I once said to my sister, completely seriously, "I can be spontaneous! I just need a minute to revise the plan". I research like crazy and then make decisions from my heart.
I enjoy off-the-beaten-path entertainment&art like the Banff Mountain Film Festival, the Ignobel Awards, small venue live music, modern dance performances, open studios, the art gallery at the library, low-budget theatre productions, and am always happy to explore whatever someone else is excited about.
I'm analytical, curious, creative, responsible, independent, indecisive, optimistic, idealistic, stubborn, impatient, a little snarky.
