My self-summary
I love plants and the smell of books.
I hold onto my past, i've got boxes of it in my closet.
I use music to explore who I am.
Creative energy inspires me. I try to surround myself with people who get it under their finger nails.
I'm not really interested in relationships that never skim below the surface. We're both worth more than that.
I'm pretty comfortable in my life and in my heart and in my skin.
I love being a smart ass and will most definitely value that in you as well.

-I commute by bicycle and love it.

The six things I could never do without
I'd rather learn to do without. I find I'm far more comfortable when I'm less reliant on having stuff and more comfortable giving stuff up.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
aesthetic beauty, internal beauty, trying to make some sort of sense out of people and relationships, and how we think and believe and wonder and create, how to listen for everything beautiful around me, how to be more patient with what I have and value all that is so easily taken for granted...
On a typical Friday night I am
pouring drinks in a quaint little bar
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've discovered through the last year of therapy that I'm far more self critical than I ever imagined.
