My self-summary
Surface: On the taller side and definitely a thin guy, but fit. Dark, full hair, brown eyes.

Values: I value nature and environmental consciousness, and consciousness in general! Sensitivity and empathy win points, as do wide-reaching interests beyond (but including) American pop culture.

I love few things more than making up spontaneous songs, and would love to harmonize with another in-the-moment poet.

I am still in a late adolescence. Having been a recluse much of my life I feel a great need for more social contact but it can be challenging for me.

Qi words:
willingness to go deep
poetry, muses, song sonnets, troubadoring
candles, curries, scents and nonsense
plant medicines and mind expansion
hope and tears of gratitude
necessary noise
rhythm • melody • harmony • dance
