hello world! here's a bit about me..
music, film, the arts, dancing, biking, hiking, swimming, learning, laughing. anything really. as long as its challenging and/or fun, educational, silly, a little stupid and/or self-indulgent/destructive.
stalking the literati, coining new catch-phrases that never quite catch on, contact team sports, interactive street performance art, Pablo Neruda, digital media/social justice, cultural cross-sections, pomegranate seeds, organizing friend's medicine cabinets

"No matter how great you are. It canâ€™t work between us. You donâ€™t have leather pants. And even if you did buy leather pants it still wouldnâ€™t work. You donâ€™t have the right body for them. It wouldnâ€™t be believable. Itâ€™s not like I need leather pants all the time. Often Iâ€™m repulsed by my own desire for them. But itâ€™s beyond fashion, itâ€™s a spiritual hunger. Itâ€™s a leather-pant-shaped vacuum in my soul." - L.D. Tipping
"Love is a fire,
It Burns Everyone
It's the world's excuse
For being Ugly." - Leonard Cohen
If a traveler does not meet with one who is better or equal,
let one firmly travel alone;
there is no companionship with a fool.
- the bhammapada, sayings of the buddha
