My self-summary
I grew up in Hawaii, spent a lot of time living on the East Coast and in the Midwest with periodic year-long escapes to Spain and Guatemala, and finally ended up with a little slice of heaven on a small farm 20 miles north of Portland.
What I’m doing with my life
I still keep my day job, but I spend a lot of time with the creatures surrounding me at home which currently encompass 2 dogs, 1 cat, 6 chickens, 2 ducks, a beehive, 12 sheep and a llama. Had a big downsizing last year from 70+ sheep previously.
I’m really good at
solving a problem by seeing it from a completely different angle
coming up with a completely awesome crazy plan
saving lives
The first things people usually notice about me
my hair is a lot shorter than it used to be.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books--The Name of the Rose, The Little Prince, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, The Magic Mountain, The Master and Margarita

Movies--UHF, Harold and Maude, Swiss Army Man...quirky is better. Anything but horror.

Shows--not a huge TV watcher but do watch the Daily Show regularly and PBS NewsHour.

Music--this changes a lot. Lately I've been listening to old spirituals, Mahalia Jackson and Ray Charles.

Food--mostly vegetarian. I don't mind if my partner eats meat.
Six things I could never do without
I can't imagine a situation where I actually could not do without.

However, I like the following things a whole lot:
My friends
My dogs
Chocolate and coffee
Fresh fruits and veggies in summer
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the mind-blowing destruction of my paradigm of how soil and the environment interact that started when I watched Ken Burns' Dust Bowl and has only continued as I learn more and more each day about modern agricultural practices and resource management. I mean, holy freaking cow. Amazing.
On a typical Friday night I am
cuddling creatures and getting ready for the weekend workout
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Going through something difficult has the potential to break you...but also can allow you to rise up.
You should message me if
You have it mostly together, especially professionally and emotionally.
You can handle a spunky, intelligent woman.
