Some of the things i like are: permaculture, bicycle touring, photography, vegan food, reading, camping, foraging, rock climbing, sewing, mutual aid, cuddling, dumpster diving, train hopping, canoeing, thrift stores, square dancing, ceili dancing, and pretty much any kind of dancing, gardening, working out...
I've been vegan for ethical reasons for 20 years and drug free even longer. (Sometimes i say straightedge, but i've never been part of that scene.) I am an anarchist. That doesn't mean no rules, it means no rulers. We still have to look out for each other.
Consent is sexy!
For money i've been working on a permaculture project where we are trying to figure out ways to build houses and grow food more ecologically. This job is awesome because i get to learn a lot from some really smart people. Next year i plan to build myself an eco-house here.
Trying to implement "No is what you have, yes is what you can get."
I try to learn from my mistakes.
