My self-summary
I am a single mom of a 5 year old girl. My life has been consumed by raising her, going back to school and working since I moved to the area and I have not had time to meet many people (nor am I any good at it).

As my daughter moves into more independent childhood I find myself emerging from the craziness of school and caring for a baby with a need to rediscover who I was and spend some time doing the things that I love.

Mostly I am looking for other parents (single or married) of children roughly my daughters age who would be happy to sit and have coffee or a beer while the children play and we can talk about... anything... work, books, music, silly gossip, the adorable thing the kids just did. If you like to hike, camp or spend an afternoon at the river that's even better.

I would describe myself as somewhat funky/bohemian. I enjoy intellectual pursuits, but hate snobbery. I enjoy a good book, but can also consume melodrama on the TV with gusto. I do not take myself too seriously, strive to enjoy the moment and am strong in my independence.

I am hopelessly liberal and have no tolerance for any bigotry of any kind.

I love to be outside, whether it's in my little yard, at the river or a weekend camping. If I could afford it, I'd camp every weekend in the summer. I love the small, less noticed parts of nature and don't need the grandiose to get me out into it. In fact, going to over crowded places like Yosemite is totally unappealing to me, give me some secluded wilderness and I'm in heaven.
What I’m doing with my life
Working, cleaning, laundry dishes, repeat.

I've really been enjoying working in my garden this summer and am working on reading a backlog of Harpers that my daughter is apparently very jealous of.
I’m really good at
I have made it a mission in my life to be equitable and kind and see all things from all angles. Though it is, and always will be, a work in progress, I think I have become good at it.
The first things people usually notice about me
my eyes, they're blue. very blue.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I am a huge fan of Bob Dylan. I love to read and savor poetry (Williams, Whitman, Millay, Rimbaud) In my mind I am married to Sam Shepard.
Six things I could never do without
my daughter
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Smashing the patriarchy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Home with my daughter, watching Gilmore Girls reruns.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am very independent and very proud of that. I am not looking for a relationship as much as a friendship. I am not interested in someone who needs me or wants me to need them.
You should message me if
You are relaxed, intelligent, okay with children, and happy with who you are as a complete person. You don't think social justice warrior is an insult.
