My self-summary
I'm a native of the East Texas Piney Woods, but I've called Austin home for nine years.

I'm a Pisces sun/moon, Leo rising. ENFP. I love the city, the sights the sounds, the parks, but not so much the traffic, I actually detest driving. But I love to go out on the town, and explore the city with friends. I also love peace and quiet, the outdoors, nature, water, trees, rocks, earth, the wind, etc. I'm a lover of all the seasons and the ever-turning Wheel of the Year.
What I’m doing with my life
I am currently a municipal employee. Working a desk job by day, and casting spells by night.
I’m really good at
Listening, but also talking as well. I love a good conversation. I like reading Tarot Cards, although mostly for myself. I haven't quite mastered reading for others. I love love to cook. Some folks say I'm a pretty damn good cook.
The first things people usually notice about me
My glasses. And when I'm not wearing them, my pretty green eyes.

On a typical Friday night I am
After work on Fridays, you will find me at happy hour munching on sushi or downing a margarita. Later, I'll be curled up in my bed with tea/wine and a book/Netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I HATE texting. But I realize in this postmodern/post-Marxist/post-anarchic/post-postmodern society, it is a necessary evil.
You should message me if
you would like to strike up a meaningful conversation. And possibly hang out- catch a flick, have a few beers, go out to eat- or better yet, cook something delicious!
