art galleries, art museums, Tower Grove Park, live music, exploring, sculpture parks, romance, seizing Day and Night

art philosophy spirituality meditation literature poetry existentialism painting sculpture open mic poetry slam politics yoga positivity social work postmodernism

I'm sweet and cuddly, intense and smart and silly. I like to look in eyes. My life is peaceful and rich with energy and creativity. Looking for the same.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a writer writing against the world-negation of the existentialists and postmoderns.

For a living I work in a nursing home. I've got a special affection for the elderly, especially if there's Alzheimer's or some kind of dementia in the mix. I'm in grad school (GRADUATED!!!!!!!!!) working on an MA in Gerontology, looking at the social-work side of nursing homes. I'll work in nursing homes, or with the elderly in some capacity, forever.

I meditate daily.
I exercise regularly.
I practice the keyboard (baroque harpsichord), or the guitar (lydian impromptu through-composed jazz) daily (lately it's been some folksy stuff).

I love kids but I don't want kids. If you have kids it's okay.
I’m really good at
Meditation: Peopling solitude.
The first things people usually notice about me
My pretty buttons, or my home-painted shoes (pinkyellowgreenpurple and white).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Sufjian Stevens, For Emma, Forever Ago (so sweet), A Voyage to Arcturus, City of Lost Children, Tarkovsky, Kazantzakis, Gide, Breton, Beckett, Tzara, Rimbaud, Lautreamont, Sartre, Camus, Simone De Beauvoir, Mary Wollstonecraft, Frog Eyes, Sunset Rubdown, Wolf Parade, Dixieland Jazz, Renaissance Harpsichord, Jung, William Blake, Kahlil Gibran, Rumi, Erich Fromm, Philip K.**** The Autumn of the Patriarch, e.e. cummings, Sappho, Anne Boleyn (her scaffold gibe's deadly poetry), Hegel, Heidegger, Husserl, Colin Wilson, Nietzsche, St John (the latter pair, oddly enough, were cosmological brothers bound up in the word Overcome), Paprika, Amelie, Traherne, Boehme, Family Guy, South Park (the punk rock of TV), Pam and Jim (sweet love story), any virtuoso, literary, cinematic, musical, or gastronomical: God (X) bless the virtuosi and sweet little prodigies.
The six things I could never do without
The Vision of the masterpiece
The Vision of true love
Self-Vision: The Vision of the superego, or self-actualized ego
A heart perpetually modestly increasing in universal sympathy, or what the King James Last Men call Charity
The deep magic of skilled meditation
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Self-Actualization, true love, the mystery of certainty, The New Existentialism, the destiny of humankind, theodicy.

My residents at the nursing home. The Masterpiece. Self-improvement. The ins and outs of inspiration.
On a typical Friday night I am
and I am not.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The Earth isn't a planet, it's a star.
You should message me if
You're inspired.
You're not afraid of eccentric intelligence.
You appreciate a romantic, yet bizarrely, incongruously, scientific, weltanschauung.
You love yourself, openly and secretly.
You love humankind and the world and the universe with a heart beyond love-hate.
You like to let things happen naturally.
You understand it's best to be friends first.
