My self-summary
I'm interested in social justice and spiritual growth, or radical spirituality--the combination of the two. I value relating with others as a way to grow and learn from one another.

I'm up for getting to know new people and seeing what happens. If sex is your primary goal, be advised that I'm old fashioned and am really only attracted to people with whom I have some kind of deeper connection.

I'm also always looking for people who want to play board games, so definitely message me if you are into that!
What I’m doing with my life
Taking responsibility, saying yes to what is, exercising compassion, taking leaps of faith, playing with form, breathing deeply. Managing the vegetables.
I’m really good at
Making things I think about appear. Speaking truth to power. Making brunch.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I listen rather than speak.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Seat of the Soul by Gary Zukav, The Alchemist, The Work by Byron Katie, A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle, The Untethered Soul, Way of the Peaceful Warrior, Steve Pavlina, The Power of Less, The Self-Aware Universe, Whipping Girl, Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?, Thinking Class, Exile & Pride, 1491, Lies My Teacher Told Me, Are Prisons Obsolete?, Conquest, Speciesism, all things Malcolm Gladwell (love the audio versions), A Complaint-Free World, Pronoia, The Reader, The Gnostic Gospels. How Not to Die by Michel Greger. Fiction rarely excites me, but I'm open to suggestions.

Movies: 127 Hours, The Apartment, Beautiful Boxer, Children of Heaven, The Lives of Others, The Man from Mallorca, Run Lola Run, Gattaca, Shabnam Mausi, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice, Constantine's Sword, The Business of Being Born, The Corporation, Dog Day Afternoon, The Brady Bunch Movie, Iron Ladies, Bend It Like Beckham, What the #$*! Do We (K)now!?, anything that's based on a true story, and fiction typically only if it's non-US.

TV: Stopped watching for 2005 as a New Year's resolution and haven't gone back. I have seen Big Love and Morgan Spurlock's insightful 30 Days series. I watch OITNB and (grudgingly) Transparent.

Audio: Mystery Show, Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!, StartUp, Insights at the Edge, audiobooks. Old people music: Billy Bragg, The Police, New Order, Simon & Garfunkel, and yes, per the screen name, Neil Young. I also like G.W. McLennan, Bishop Allen, Fury in the Slaughterhouse and other random bands.

Food: fruits & vegetables, hearty salads, Ethiopian, Indian. This list is not comprehensive. As of 2016, I follow Bright Line Eating, which means no sugar or refined grains, and I am loving it.

compassion
personal development
am I getting enough antioxidants?
On a typical Friday night I am
Seeing a play, traveling, hanging out with friends or the bf, resting up for the weekend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am trans. (Trans like Buck Angel sans muscles and tattoos.) And a robot in disguise. That and that I have an irrational aversion to Transformers. I am, and will always be, a Gobot man.
