My self-summary
When I was a child, I'd go out in the woods, and everything there--from the lines of branches against the sky to the shapes of lichens on stones--looked like runes or hieroglyphs to me, making up a language which was the natural world.

Nature and language are at the core of who I am, so, after a few false starts, I am embarking on a career in environmental journalism. I've also had some essays and poems published, and hope to take a stab at fiction next.

Though happily in awe of life, I'm not immune to occasional fits of darkness--but that's life really. We accept the darkness and the light both.

I am a gracefully (I hope) aging punk rocker and an aspiring buddhist. I ride my bike everywhere, even in winter, and have 2 pet birds I allow to chew holes in my possessions.

There's so much to love about life and humankind. I'm learning that what motivates me is a desire for connection--to nature, to art, to communities, to friends, to myself.

So I'd like to get out and do fun things, and if something deeper develops, that would be perfect. Cycling, kayaking, poetry readings, movies, spicy food--these are all things I like to do. But let me know what you want to do! I don't feel everyone in my life has to have the same interests as me.
What I’m doing with my life
Pitching articles to environmental magazines. Writing a lot. Doing fun things with friends. Loving my birds.
I’m really good at
Sarcasm, daydreaming, wondering how people are and calling them to find out.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have no idea, really.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
There's so much good, creative stuff out there, I really can't pick favorites. All kinds of books except romance and horror--with a devastating weakness for Scandinavian mystery novels. Spicy food with lots of vegetables, excellent ginger beer. I crave yummy desserts at all times. I like same cool tv that all the cool people like, and endearing quirky movies like the version of Romeo and Juliet with Leonardo DiCaprio. Also, documentaries on PBS and netflix rule.
The six things I could never do without
friends
the ocean
my birds
writing
delicious food
restful sleep
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm trying to learn to think less.
On a typical Friday night I am
I may go out, but I'm also perfectly happy staying home with a book or surfing left wing snark sites, or cooking dinner and watching a movie with my loved ones.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have eaten ramen noodles without cooking them.
