But, it seems to be working.
American living in Canada for the last five years.
I love Vancouver and I want more people to share it with. Living in a city is actually new to me and pretty exciting. I love laughing but I can have a dark sense of humor. Forgive me if I seem quiet, I'm probably just lost in deep thought. Building community and relationships is the most important thing to me right now.
I like playing with paper (folding, cutting, painting, marbling), fabric (screenprinting), and making pretty things. My newest skill is basket weaving! Do you have a willow tree or any vine plants? Let's talk!

a snuggly blanket
a music player
warm, sunny weather (occassionally, and I know it's all relative, but too many days of dreary skies nearly did me in once or twice)
I have an addiction to coffee that might make it easier to meet in the real world.
