My self-summary
I love getting to know people who show some sign of life - curiosity, spark, critical thinking, passion for something, and an appetite for connecting and creating.

My professional life and personal projects are fulfilling and I have a cozy home with a wonderful array of friends and family. Why mess with that, right? Well, I'm checking out you fine men for friendship, maybe romance and intimacy, and we can take it from there.

I'd like to meet men brave enough to pursue a smart, joyful, playful woman such as myself. I'm caring, kind, giving, and love to laugh. My Myers Briggs type is ENFJ, the Ethical Intuitive Extrovert, for what it's worth.

The ability to make things, exercise common sense, fix things, and play instruments are all very attractive attributes. It's especially sexy when a man uses his powers for good in the world.
What I’m doing with my life
Finishing a masters in adult learning, helping people to connect with meaningful work and see meaning in the work they do, tending the garden, refining my sourdough bread-making abilities, and other stuff.
I’m really good at
Finding the humor, accommodating without compromising, being that one that even strangers tell everything, all things, including medical maladies. (Why? Am I really THAT easy to approach?) I can handle it though. I'm also good at knowing when, in either blunt or kind terms, to tell someone to fuck off.
The first things people usually notice about me
My laugh, my smile, that I play well with others.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'd bet we have some shared taste in music, movies, shows, etc., and then some wonders we could exchange and explore.

Tip of the iceberg: Bowie, The Bad Plus, Blue Cranes, Horace Silver, Nina Simone, Mulatu Astatke, Mid-August Lunch, Man with a Movie Camera, Ip Man, Margaret Atwood, Margaret Mead, the Moth, things about the Taiga River Valley, Dewey, Billy Collins, bell hooks, the beehive in my heart.

Food? I'm a little adventuresome and a little picky - mostly vegetarian, heathy, fresh, organic, flavorful.
Six things I could never do without
my wonderfully big-hearted friends
breathtaking beauty of growing things
lifelong learning
courage when difficult action is required
great sex - there, I said it!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
work-related concerns, school-related projects, great and small adventures, types of moss, elegantly functional design ...
On a typical Friday night I am
Spending time with friends, hanging out in the garden, making things. This varies.
You should message me if
Message me if you're inclined. I'd be interested in hearing what projects you're doing, what has you thinking, ticked off, delighted, moved to laughter or tears lately. What's going on with you?
The two of us
