My self-summary

I'm a 48 year old polyamorous bisexual woman, happily married to a wonderfully bisexual and polyamorous man, cernnunos. We've had some serious and a few not so serious relationships in the 17 years we've been together. We currently are seeing an incredibly lovely couple who are now living in the Netherlands (rev_dr_ace and eric4211), and life is a happy place. On the Meyers-Briggs tests I always come up an ENFP (except once, when I got an ENFJ; I was having a bad day at work...) I'm a visual artist, love sculpture and 3D art especially, have recently been seen making things with PMC, creating graphic images in Photoshop and Illustrator, and up to my elbows in tie-dye. I'm in a band with my incredibly talented partner, called Gaia Consort - which recently has become Bone Poets Orchestra, and I get to design the album covers, logos, posters and the like (among other things). Aside from the music and art, I work in the computer software industry (but am thinking seriously about changing fields), read voraciously, love reading aloud to children and/or adults (I've read the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy aloud, three times), play computer games (I LOVE puzzle games, like the Myst series, and adventure games like Aveyond), and drink way too much coffee. I also love to cook, though recently I've been enjoying mostly lower-carb stuff; finding it can be a pretty tasty diet, but not taking it too seriously. I find art supplies difficult to resist, and love exploring new mediums of artistic expression.

I grew up in the Olympic National Park, so the rainforest is the place that feels most like home to me. I love camping and hiking, though I don't do enough of either, and love to go into the woods and listen, and remember that trees are living beings who just have a different timeline than we...

Politically, you won't find me ranting on a streetcorner, but that doesn't mean I don't have very strong views. I'm unhappy at the political climate of my country, feel that the changes we're making now are just baby steps, there's so much more we can do - I want to be a part of that change, and I feel it's important to be conscious of our lives and actions, and how even in small ways we can affect our worlds with our actions and choices. I wish more people used their native intelligence more actively,and aspire to do that myself.

I am artistic, empathetic, and intuitive
What I’m doing with my life
Exploring art and music, working to support our art habits and hoping to find ways that the art can support us without day-jobs. Reading a lot, helping others as is possible, and getting political messages out there in wierd and wonderful ways... maybe getting ready to write that book... considering a move to the Netherlands... maybe going back to school... making more art...
I’m really good at
making things with my hands. I've been told I'm a great cook, and I love cooking and baking; I'm a sculptor and graphic artist, I love beading and sewing... I've cast bronze, sculpted in gingerbread, plaster, clay, fabric, and pixels, made wedding cakes, helped deliver babies, and painted signs... among other things...
The first things people usually notice about me
I guess my smile, or my laugh - that's what they mention...

E) Favorite Drinks (yeah, I know you didn't ask): Dirty Gin Martini - slightly 'wet' with extra olives, single malt scotch, poir eau de vie, Gin & tonic, really good Chardonnay, and I fantasize about dark, rich, velvety Burgundies because I can't drink red...

Six things I could never do without
I could survive without these things, but here's a list of what I'd *prefer* not to leave out of my life:

coffee, cheese, good music, great sex, intimacy, being with people I can talk to, and chocolate
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what's the next art project going to be, and how am I going to get the time to do it right? What's the nature of perception and why do we create religions for ourselves? How are humans going to evolve past wanting to give up personal responsibility for our own lives, and how can I help make that happen? And my loves - I think about them a *LOT*...
On a typical Friday night I am
Chilling at home, either watching a movie or working on projects with my honey. Maybe chatting online with my sweeties 6,000 miles away...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I guess I could admit that I enjoy anticipation, so long as there is *eventually* a release from the tension :-) ...and I own a strapon
You should message me if
You're interested in talking about art & thought & perception & reality...
The two of us
