About me? Well I will give you a Simbi-me for this site.
I want to learn survival and sustainability skills, I want to give, I want to be able to get by without owning a car or a cell phone or a house (Okay so far!) but if I become responsible for things that I didn't intend to, I want them to be shared and special and inspiring of new better ways of doing it. Too much toxic waste and greed and sense of entitlement on the planet. I feel like we all co-care for this world and we should be responsible with our power and privilege so that life is nurtured on every level.
I want to share my skills and encourage others to do the same so that technological knowledge doesn't get stuck in an elite economic sphere, but instead is shared with everyone equally to create opportunity and egalitarian situations.
I want to express myself as an artist and be an artistic supporter of dreams and optimism. So alright, I believe in maintaining a little mystery and play —put to good use, not to deceive or dominate.
To be a true optimist I must understand difficult truths and not ignore them; to develop solutions to problems with others involves constant vigilance for the right opportunities for sharing, appropriate communication, laughter, patience (with others and one's self) and not dominating with a single idea of what is right.
I mess up a lot, but that's how I learn. And I won't give up!
