My self-summary
I don't answer one word messages, unless it's a very interesting word. Try to step up your game!

After watching Casual, I'm working on winnowing this thing down to a select few words that say so much, but leave much mystery. I'm told people prefer mystery to being too earnest. Obviously, this winnowing will take some effort. Trying to avoid the TL;DR thing.

I once made my profile super-long with extra-big words to intimidate the faint of heart (shieldmaiden Brynhildr here, sleeping in the ring of fire and awaiting my Sigurðr, evidently), but that screwed up the Cupid algorithm. Rejiggering my fishinfly and casting out again:

I'm looking for my sweetheart, my beshert, my beloved. Is that too much to ask?

Can you find the harmony in a song? I can hold my own with the melody line, but a real musician, who is also patient and generous, would be wonderful. For our road trips!

Come with me to all the exciting African surrealist and German expressionist and avant-garde-of-all stripes films, operas, musical happenings, art openings, installations and exultations, the Venice Biennale and the Berlinale, Cannes and Telluride, as well as a sauna hut on a lake somewhere, visiting my ancestors on a fjord ENE of Tromsø, doing a three-month chuchuhuasi dieta in the Amazon, a month-long yoga retreat in Costa Rica or Thailand or Bali, and a year-long trek through India from South to North.

I am a writer, researcher, editor and filmmaker. I have possibly way too many books. Sort them with me?
What I’m doing with my life
trying to remember that I am spirit having a human experience.

I slay at karaoke!
I’m really good at
freestyling in the kitchen (but not with baked goods) and starting trees from seed, even with northern exposure. My first kapok tree is 11 feet tall, growing out my apartment window. My second is now about 8 inches and growing fast. Ideally, you have, or we can find together, a yard that needs a tree that wants to grow 200 feet tall. I'm like that tree—vast potential, but a bit root bound. I'm ready for a transplantation!
The first things people usually notice about me
is that I make them feel tingly.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I am an adventurous cook, and like to use every dish in the kitchen. I would be very gratified to find a guy who can also cook, who enjoys my cooking, and perhaps most precious of all, who loves to do the dishes.

My secret go-to ingredients are saffron, Cointreau, cardamom or Angostura Bitters. I guess that's kinda me: sweet, spicy and a little unexpected.

I like Old Fashioneds and I love cognac-style rhum.

I like all kinds of music from Tortoise to Junip to Great Northern to Joni Mitchell to Led Zep to Schubert to A.R. Rahman to Julieta Venegas to Celia Cruz to Perez Prado to Sibelius to the Knife to Bjork to Philip Glass to Fever Ray to the Doors to Duke Ellington. I listen to a lot of Brian Eno and Harold Budd while I am sitting very still and concentrating.

I'm enjoying Mr. Robot and The Path. Stranger Things was fun and The Night Of was amazing.

In the fifth grade, [charming but long story redacted] I didn't win the bike because I was disqualified for blowing the curve. Fuck those guys.

And yet, with all that reading, I feel like I have giant holes in my reading history. I need to tackle more literary fiction. The classic novels. Contemporary fiction.
The six things I could never do without
These days, dominated as we are by Internet culture and superpenetrating social media, folks seem to get overwhelmed easily. Everyone just "logs off"-- we have become mere theoretical objects that wink out of existence the moment someone gets triggered or bored. I would like to fight very hard against this tendency, and I would ask the same of you. In other words, please be kind.

I would also like some potato chips.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
quantum reality.
On a typical Friday night I am
lighting candles
You should message me if
you have a good heart and good hands, and are willing to go the distance.
