Reading, writing and asking questions are my favorites things, and I'm lucky enough that I get paid to do all three. I'm a news junkie, an extrovert, have a big laugh, and I'm not afraid to talk to strangers. But I also place great value on introspection and thoughtfulness.
My spiritual practice is a central part of my life. I pray and meditate daily, and it guides my actions toward others. Yours doesn't have to look just like mine, but if you’re not into pondering Big Questions, then I’m not the girl for you. Having said that, I have a very low tolerance for fundamentalism of any type.
The family home is in Austin, and, yes, I am a music junkie. I once broke up with I guy on the spot when I found out he didn't know who Johnny Cash was. (I mean, who does that?!)
I have several largish tattoos and will likely get more, but I don't think I'm in-your-face about it - I know how to cover up for work and for grandmas.
Spelling and grammar are important to me, but "superfunawesometime" is also completely acceptable. Playing with language will earn you extra points.

I run the occasional half marathon or triathlon, but I mostly like riding my bike all over places, like South Africa, Namibia, West Texas. Love that sweet little ride to Mount Vernon, wanna do the C&O to Pittsburgh this fall.
I can be pretty nerdy, and at some point I will tell you all about the French and Indian War. Seriously, I'm writing a screenplay.
I like living in the middle of a metropolis as much as I like standing on the summit of a mountain. The suburban stuff in between makes me want to die.
