I have a passion for words, and while my vocabulary is sadly in need of improvement, I do manage to piece together the ones I can access to form sometimes entertaining and informative sentences; they do tend to go on a bit, though. When I read, I read for the words rather than plot and when I listen to music I do so for the lyrics more than the melody.
I spent more time than I would have liked trying to me normal but, finally, after 30 years or so of life, I began feeling comfortable and while the feeling is sometimes transitory, I am more comfortable than not with who I am but I am still learning and evolving, even though, like most people, my first reaction to change is resistance; growth and some degree of pain walk hand in hand, embracing the pain is never easy but often the most rewarding, and, in the end, pleasurable. So, I try to get the most enjoyment out of me that I can, which is good but I still miss enjoying someone else; yes, I have wonderful friends and family and never feel alone, but, and there is a distinction, I am sometimes lonely.
I love european cars, I am now the proud owner of a VW Jetta Station Wagon, yes a Station Wagon. Yay!
I once wrote, "All I need is my guitar when I'm lonely": not entirely true, but it sounds good and I do love my guitars. I have a few, I want more. I recently bought my first Martin, it smells wonderful. No, I am not a virtuoso, merely self taught for my own amusement. Yes, I take requests.
At Present, I live on a farm, a real working farm with chickens, turkeys, sometimes pigs and whatever fresh vegetables are growing in the garden. Oddly enough I am not what you would call an outdoorsy person even though half my life has been lived in rural environs. I suppose you could call me a country boy with city sensibilities, or, you may just call me odd, strange, or weird; all apply, none offend.
I have a beard, I wear a hat and jacket: these things make me comfortable. Recently I discovered I like french cuffs. Laziness prevents me from wearing a tie more often but I do always carry a handkerchief.
Apparently I do not photograph well, or at least do not photograph myself well, and have been told I look better in person which was a relief since I was unhappy with all of the photos I uploaded. (Hey, I am trying to attract someone here)
When it comes to emails I can be quite verbose, prepare yourself though of late I have been a bit taciturn as in real life.
Should we meet in person I may be quite quiet, prepare yourself; I do warm up eventually.
For all intents and purposes I have quit smoking, I use an ecig, which means I am a Vapist.
I must admit, I am a Whovian. I am a Trekkie as well, though not actively. To simplify, I like Sci-Fi.
I am disabled, though not technically handicapped and I am in NO way looking for someone to fix me! Also I am not wealthy nor am I in any debt and could care less about how much money you make or have.
When it comes to books I prefer Capital L, Literature and can be quite the snob about it, however, if you read trash I will not mind. The majority of books I read are older than I, usually much older. What do Jonathan Swift and I have in common? Both non-nihilistic misanthropes. I am not pessimist, however, rather a realist.
"Sometimes I almost feel, just like a human being."
I am Dark, Dry, and Quixotic.
