I love challenging creative endeavors, showering my friends with love and good cookin', and discovering paradigms that supplant systems of oppression. My heart throbs for art that surrounds and engages the body: modern dance, esoteric art installations, beautiful architecture, period set designs and costumes, inspired cinematography. That's if a beautiful forest, cave, or mountain is not accessible.
The project of being in a body is my constant internal, interpersonal, intersectional, political practice. I write, crack jokes, move energy, concoct herbal potions, read, and destigmatize my chronic illness through art. Dancing 24/7. Using new lenses to view my healing as magic not science.
Writing: Mating Broad City with Foucault and Waiting for Godot. Terri Gross is going to interview me and then go down on me. Or at the very least she'll let me go down on her. Then the CO2 will stop concentrating, and fascism will suffocate. Methinks;)
Dry wit, appreciating ritual, imagining traveling. Nesting. Empathy (too good). Midwestern foraging. Identifying ceramic glazing, construction, and firing techniques. Complaining about mediocrity with entitled sincerity. Ranting about how to transform porn culture with a new invention of porn.
Yeah brah I'm a magical unicorn;)

Looking for lovers and friends for deep conversation and cuddles!
You understand energetic boundaries. You are in your body.
Couples are IRL only due to the extra energetic butt-sniffing. Unless you have separate profiles, in which case, huzzah!
