My self-summary
In a relationship now - just keeping profile online for yucks.

Artist, explorer, writer interested in culture, landscape, structure, social economic issues, zoos, film, and music seeks smart, passionate, creative woman who will explore with me- the world, locally and beyond; someone go to art events with, and see trashy summer movies.
What I’m doing with my life
Being an artist, writer, museum professional and working on various other projects.
I’m really good at
Painting pictures. Art criticism. Noticing trends. Listening. Packing trunks. Petting cats and scratching dogs. Filling my social calendar too much. Growing beards. Dr. Mario.
The first things people usually notice about me
I suspect the beard

Six things I could never do without
People mention sometimes that this question is dumb. Dumber than the other questions. I think they might be right, then again they are all designed to just get you talking about yourself, this is all just designed as a replacement for first-date small talk, right? If that is true, then why is it that when I meet folks from here we still have to do all the fist-date small talk? I suspect that reading comprehension has something to do with it.

So, what did I say before, oh yes -
Studio space
music to live by
an audience
opportunity to explore
my friends laughter
and good sleep
(I'm supposed to say "my friends and family of course" or mention the basic needs to survive, but well, this question really is dumb, actually.)
(plus proper medical care is helpful)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Tropical beaches. I do. Oh and art. And why I keep waking up with the Dave Matthews Song "I eat too much, I drink too much...too much" even though I haven't been a fan of the band since like 1998?
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
my cat has fleas. Okay, she had fleas, I managed to get 'em taken care of. But it was still private, and embarrassing. Although it's not like I had fleas. At least I dont think so. Although that would explain why i keep trying to scratch my neck with my foot.

Update: I had to give my kitty to my sister:(
You should message me if
You can't summarize yourself in this format. Okay, of course you can, just as well as in any format! Basically, you understand that this is still a crapshoot; you enjoy some of what I wrote.
The two of us
