I love the ocean. I love being underwater and playing in the waves. Drowning terrifies me but I'm drawn to the sea, to the amazing world of life under there, and to the serenity of being caught in such a heavy and powerful solution.
I'm a dancer learning how to sing to the music of my heart. The world is loud but I'm learning how to carry my own tune. I might as well be tone deaf and I have a poor sense of rhythm so these are funny metaphors for me to use but they feel right and I'm learning!! :)
I want to build a house out of dirt and garbage, maybe old tires or shipping containers. I don't want to spend my life working a job I don't like paying for a fancy, leaky shoe box I won't have time or energy to enjoy with people I love but don't get to spend much time with. I want to have a home and share food and my life with people who are committed to honesty and openness. Wild, free, and compassionate folks. Sober vegan anarchists would be ideal.. but those are just labels that stem from my understanding of those values.
