fantasy life

something I've been tossing around my head for a while... not that I ever expect my life to be exactly like this, but I think this is the general direction I want things to go.

I open my eyes to the shaft of sunlight streaming in the east window, filtered by the shuddering shadows of pine trees behind our house. A cat or two at my feet, someone warm and comfy next to me. I stretch and get up, mind already busy planning the day ahead.

Someone else (not the someone who was in bed with me) is already in the kitchen making breakfast - offers me scrambled eggs, which I appreciatively accept. It's a warm late September morning, so I go outside to eat on the porch in the sun. The mountains shimmer in haze to the northeast, and south I can just barely make out the imposing outline of Mount Rainier.

As I eat, I think over my daily routine:
  • a few solid hours of artwork in my studio (northern-lit, warm and spacious - adjoining the computer room so that others are near, but not distracting)
  • around lunch, a break for errands; bank, post office to mail out print orders, art store
  • after I get back, some time with some combination of my SOs doing business-y stuff - paperwork, filling orders, updating the web site
  • around 4 I break for physical activity - practicing bellydancing, or since it's really nice outside I might go for a bike ride. Once or twice a week I drag a friend or three off to the rock gym to go climbing.
  • Come home, take a shower, relax a bit with a video game or a book. Then dinner.
  • The evening varies: sometimes I'll do more artwork, others will be social evenings or playing D&D. Every so often we'll go into town for a concert or a show. I have belly dancing class one day a week, or maybe aikido practice. Another night is drum circle.

Weekend activities can include skydiving, roadtripping, rock climbing, ice skating; just relaxing with friends, doing home-improvement-y stuff, playing games, working on some project or other with one or more of my SOs. I have some personal code projects that I spend time on when I can - I'm writing an Alicebot, and also have a couple of small robots running around. Sometimes I squeeze in time to go volunteer at the cat shelter.

My living is made mostly by artwork, but I also help J with his business, doing perl scripting and the like. Unnamed SO #2 (and maybe #3) also work(s) in our businesses, or maybe they go to a Real Job - either way, it's something they enjoy and are happy doing.

We're not rolling in money, but comfortable. The house is open and well-lit, modified and decorated extensively by our family. No children yet, but we're about at the point where it would be practical to consider it.

Very nice image. :)

Now move to Seattle, that's the all-important first step. :P :P :P

Although find someone to move you, according to the tax documents that the company sent me, it cost over $10,000 to move me here with Mayflower. Eek!!

Been speechless all day
I read this when it was first posted earlier today.

It's taken me a few hours to even be able to respond. I've had a view of my perfect universe for a long time. It really never made sense to anyone and I found it impossible to explain. The fact that I've had a polyamourous view of the universe has never helped.

When I explain my views (even as recent as this afternoon) I am told. Well, you are just looking for a threesome, how typically male. And the post above captured one very important thing. It was about the love of family. There was no sexual imagry in it at all.

This is the responsibly loving story of a family. It makes me believe that there is real hope for happiness in my eyes knowing that there are others who see the world this way.

My only last comment is that I really wish I'd gotten to know you better while in Pgh.

Love is the law, love under will
