My self-summary
Recently relocated to Seattle, after 2 years in SLC and a brief stay in Portland (I still visit often). I used to be a performance poet-- maybe I still am, but lately I'm more focused on writing. My serious poetry gets compared to Lorca, my funny to Seuss, and I'm happy with and flattered by both comparisons.

I have a lot of "friendly acquaintances" with whom I get along very well, but have a hard time connecting with people on a deeper level.

Have been through a lot of emotional gut punchery in the past few years, but now bouncing back strong-- I am not as light-hearted as I used to be, but still pretty light. I am not as much fun as I used to be, but still pretty fun. Conversely, I am more self-aware and more compassionate than I used to be.

This could be slightly more illuminating, maybe:

I am intense, protean, and foolish.

2/26/2011: I haven't been on OKC in a LONG time. The most significant change in my life is that I'm now in a serious long term open relationship-- but I'm always happy to make new friends, and open to the idea of new playmates... and not entirely opposed to the idea of incorporating a 3rd person into our relationship if we really hit it off well.
What I’m doing with my life
In the short term, I'm recovering from a series of mis-steps and trying to figure out what my next step forward is. Though a long time weak-atheist/agnostic, I've recently taken up meditation, and now consider myself Bu-curious, if you get my meaning

I rarely stay anyplace long, but I'm hoping to put down roots in Seattle.
I’m really good at
False modesty and ping pong, minus the ping pong.
The first things people usually notice about me
My enormous cochlea.

Also, I get told I look like Moby when I'm clean shaven or Woody Allen when I'm not.

Six things I could never do without
The only constant is change. I could do without everything else.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The eventual heat death of the universe. That, and puppies. Lots of puppies.
On a typical Friday night I am
One of: 1) Out performing 2) hanging out with 2 or 3 close friends or 3) cloistered off somewhere alone, writing.

I don't do the "club" thing, as a general rule, but've been known to make occasional exceptions.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I try to be reasonably discrete about it and not shove it down people's throats or anything, but it's worth mentioning that I'm a babyfur. This is pretty fundamental to who I am and if you aren't cool with that, we probably wouldn't be able to connect.
You should message me if're looking for new friends in the Portland or Seattle area who lean to the eccentric. I'm open to finding a "more than friend" in any capacity, but mostly looking for friends right now.

The qualities I most look for in a potential friend, playmate or partner are intelligence, compassion and a sense of fun, all equally important. Artistic talent in any genre or medium is also a big plus.
The two of us
