radically minimalist proposal

I want to propose to my long-time partner, but an overblown wedding proposal sounds agonizing to me as an introvert. I am now thinking that I would like to aim my energy at finding the most creatively minimalist proposal
that I can. My partner is completely quirky, so the strangest ideas are totally welcomed. I'm overthinking this to the point of paralysis, and losing months of engaged bliss as a result! How the heck should I propose given all these elements?

A little more info: we are somewhat androgynous as a couple, very non-traditional, utterly committed to each other, late 30s, money in limited supply. There is a ring. A positive response to the proposal is assured. I just have to find a way to ask!
Bonus: I might like to have some minimalistically fantastic idea I can throw together when the time is right, without limited preparation, rather than having to execute a time-based plan.
Any ideas or sparks of ideas would be unbelievably helpful at this point!
