My self-summary
​Ribs of mine, often I wish you would just go on holiday. Buy three tickets, and take my shirt and skin with you. Let my heart live openly.

I want my afternoons and evenings to fill with the joy of Saturday mornings. I want to write, to drive, to sing, to flirt, to kiss, to cry, to yell and scream. These ribs feel more like a chain than a shield. Layers of clothing cake on like the exhaust on glass that obscures views.

Openly. Not stuck behind unasked questions or subdued feelings. Ebullient with compliments. Smile-giving, life-reinforcing acknowledgements of the humanity in others. I want to give that face-reddening praise the way a loving husband gives flowers.

Oh, to take people out of the rut. To gently tug up a chin as a 1950's leading man might, to make moment cementing eye contact, and to tell a man, woman, or child that they are beautiful. That they are charming. That they exist.

That they exist. Too often we forget that even we exist. We lose sight of the only truth: that we are part of this world.
What I’m doing with my life
Plants, wine, creeks, feminism, books
I’m really good at
Knowing by instinct just where on the neck and back someone needs to be rubbed
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Attenborough, Bronowski, Chesterton, Dillard

Fela Kuti, Hugh Maskela - blasting horns on steamy nights
Feist, Linda Perhacs - for gentle, precious mornings
The six things I could never do without
"In dwelling, live close to the ground.
In thinking, keep to the simple.
In conflict, be fair and generous.
In governing, don't try to control.
In work, do what you enjoy.
In family life, be completely present.

When you are content to be simply yourself
and don't compare or compete,
everybody will respect you."
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I can help, without losing my own peace
On a typical Friday night I am
Lost in deep conversation, hopefully
You should message me if
Tell me your flaws, you beautiful, messy human. OKCupid is like a job resume, but we all know we're more than what can be put on paper.
