Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I value emotional intelligence, intellectual curiosity and
spontaneous shenanigans. I am envisioning a long term partnership,
though recognize that the most meaningful relationships happen when
I let go of efforting and flow with my immediate surround.
I tend to choose one of the steeper paths to the top of the
mountain, and am known to jump into ciphers with dudes who have a

this intention to every other thing I do as well. I am working at
being less hard on myself these days, amongst other things :)

part of the park/forest/mountain/lake/beach. I like to make fires
and burn cedar, copal and palo santo, creating and practicing a few
rituals I have learned and benefited from.
I also LOVE making contemporary art and music, though I have
precious time to pursue their creation myself these days. I drive a
lot for my job and sing along with pop radio in spite of my dusty
gem worshipping dj self.
I’m really good at
