Six things I could never do without
Making things with my hands
Playful exercise
The touch of caring hands
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why hide when you can show the world who you really are?
Creative process.
Problem solving.
Foolish ideas.
Oddity and beauty and their closeness.
How things go together?
What's inside of stuff?
What makes stuff stick?
Why we remember?
How we learn?
What people are thinking and why?
How people are feeling and why?
How would I fix that?
Information arrangement and visual hierarchies.
Your hand in mine.
Technical parameters.
Is my body aligned for this moment?
Can my heart open to what is in front of me?
How do I take this apart into manageable steps?
Do you think I'm sexy?
If you want my body?
Are you going to let me know?
How can I find grounding in an ever-changing world?
Is it a contradiction, a logical fallacy or a state of grace? Or should I have said 'and' not 'or'?
Getting dirty.
Starting things.
Finding closure.
Who you really are... I'd like to know!
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with close friends and my son. Chatting, playing, eating pizza, having a glass of wine, and unwinding from a week of work and school. Not very glamorous, but very satisfying to be with open hearted people.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't even know you yet! Hmmmm. You had better meet me and ask again in person.
You should message me if
A. What I have written makes any sense to you.
B. I haven't freaked you out yet.
C. You think I am crazy and hot, or crazy hot.
D. You are curious.
E. You are desperate. No, on second though, strike that. No desperate, please!
F. You are free to meet and interested in making a new friend.
G. You are looking for a new AcroYoga partner.
H. You like yourself and you enjoyed reading this.
I. You like watching paint dry.
The two of us
