Beauty is important to me. I like to go to SAM and the symphony and the ballet. I like walking through the fog on a quiet morning and the sharp blue of the sky on a cold day. I like Cinerama and SIFF. I like wheat berries and local wine and exposed brick and gaslight. I like the flower the barista draws in my cappuccino.
My work needs to be meaningful, because the alternative is too depressing. I am a feminist (of course). I cut most of my hair off in November and keep cutting it shorter every month. (It's kind of addictive.) I don't own a car or a TV but I do love my Netflix. I own two nice pairs of jeans and two nice pairs of shoes and cycle back and forth between them. I like dogs. I recycle.
I find the term "hard femme" describes my gender self-presentation pretty well. I'm uncomfortable dressing very butch (men's clothing) or very femme (heels and make-up). I'm most attracted to men.
