Now that we've got that out of the way: I'm a writer, a feminist, a polyamorist, and an alien in human disguise. I like individuals more than crowds, ideas more than ideologies. I am passionate about art, love, science, and social progress.
I'm increasingly in love with the world around me. I'm continually working on myself, physically and mentally, determined to make the most out of what Mary Oliver calls my "one wild and precious life."
I've read a few thousand books and I can give killer recommendations to readers of many kinds (I love getting them too). My imagination is vivid and unique. I've been told I am a good kisser, an attentive and inventive lover, a caring friend, and a quite serviceable human space heater.

2. I was electrocuted in the mouth when I was three years old.
3. I can make people laugh, often in a milk-out-the-nose sort of way, though usually after they've grown to know me.
4. I'd rather have a deep, intimate connection with someone than a light, breezy thing where we pretend to be really close but actually know little about one another.
5. Complete strangers often turn to me for advice. As in, people sitting next to me on a bench have suddenly divulged intimate secrets about their lives and then asked my opinion. I'm not sure why this is, nor am I complaining, but it is a little weird.
if you are interested in ethical open relationships,
if you are GGG, a member of AAA, or are into OOO theory,
or if you have a book recommendation for me.
Most importantly, write me if you are looking for a close, deep connection with someone. Even my friendships tend toward the transformative, the alchemical. And my love relationships more so.
