I try keep my life interesting, usually doing something related to nature and the ocean. I always have at least one project going, usually more. Currently I'm starting a very small marine aquarium and trying to grow a jungle of vines in my studio apartment.
Acting ethically is important to me. I do my best to stay aware of the consequences of my actions and minimize my negative impacts on the world. I feel conflicted about things like animal products and keeping fish in aquariums. I think that life is all about balancing joys and impacts. Luckily, spending time with people I feel close to is a freebie :)
I'm a feminist and LGBT supporter. If you aren't, we won't get along.
Independent and creative, I have little concern for being "normal". That person carrying a fig tree on the bus--yeah, that's me.
Also, if you own a fireplace, I can build you the perfect fire. It's kinda dreamy :)

Also, what it means to be happy, what "quality" really is, how to preserve wilderness in a world full of humans.
