As my tangled path through a tulgey wood has had its ups and downs, I've learned a few things, not always easily, and am hence the better person for it. I have a delightful partner in my life to grow with, learn from, lean on and support reciprocally, so I'm only for an occasional, sincerely enthusiastic and fun gal for a light, unattached, fwb situation.
At my side already is a strange & delightful dog, who eased into my life, a victim of circumstance, becoming both my shadow and my dear friend.
I'm living on a bay shaped like a saxophone
with my lovely lady and our bunnies, sugar glider, and dog. While this arrangement continues to exceed my expectations, I am poly and am looking for a new nsa sex-only relationship or two.
I'm pretty into the whole Burning Man thing, though after a
decade of going, it's turned into a much more complicated
relationship. Much like I didn't with skydiving in my 20's, I
don't confuse (as many do) my passion with hobby/community with my own identity. I find the my community essential and precious, with Participants committed to creativity, learning, sharing, experiencing, co-creating and generally manifesting a closer-knit-than-bog-standard lifestyle for each other. This affords me many opportunities to create and lead, which I do often, sometimes with abandon, and fortunately, usually with success.
I strongly believe that one should never stop learning. Right now, I'm trying to learn to Kitesurf and play the bass guitar. Both are awkward, powerful, and challenging.
And I *love* to make people laugh.

Movies: Dr. Strangelove, Pulp Fiction, Heathers, Go, Blade Runner, Up, ...
Shows: While I've enjoyed a few series like Deadwood, Battlestar Galactica, Babylon 5, and the like, my home has no dedicated TV; it is a very low priority.
Music: (I've had a strongly electronic bent for the last decade, but I am fairly open minded to most things; this list is wildly incomplete.) Psytrance, Shpongle, Thievery Corp, Random Rab, Younger Brother, Phish, Shostakovich, Dire Straits, Moxy Fruvous, Cake, ELO, Rush, Simon & Garfunkel, Indigo Girls, Bach, Postal Service, ... (divbyzero.de & Groove Salad on somafm are in heavy rotation on the streaming station front) (I admit to having a hard time with most punk and hiphop -- I'm not an angry person, and I don't sync well with music that is.)
Food: Chilis, anchovies, avocados, beets, biscuits, okonomiyaki, tamales, sushi, pho, lamb, you-name-it, really... I've been running low-carb this year, and it's been a great change. Lately, it's been all about scrambling eggs in duck fat and olive oil.
* you have something (or many things) to teach & share... I am certain to return the favor.
* you are not an INFP (meyers-briggs); my recent experience with such makes me think I need to be around E's and T's a little more, though a sufficiently self-aware INFP might be okay, because (darn it!) they are so wonderfully passionate.
* you are naturally verbally inclined (scrabble, improv, banter, etc)
