Hi, I’m Dave Booda



This is my favorite poem
I started IntimacyFest
I consider myself a minimalist
I practice non-monogamy
I live in an intentional community and I’m on the board of directors for the FIC
I’ve traveled a lot 

Current location:
Bonsall, CA



Thinks outside the box  
Makes everything fun  
Loves improvising  
Disruptive thinker  
Makes amends  


  Doesn’t like the box
  Needs everything to be fun
  Dislikes planning
  Generally disruptive
  Makes a mess 

Favorite Quotes

The reward for conformity is that everyone likes you, but yourself.

~ Rita Mae Brown

Nothing’s worth leaving myself for. Not being on time, not getting everything done, not “getting” love. If the whole world falls apart because I do what it takes to stay right here, in deliciously continuous contact with myself, so be it. If I lose some money, lose some friends, and let balls drop like flies, so be it. I would die for this beauty of myself, unfolding at the speed of blooming.

~ Lindsay Sworski
