...and their trust. My friends have said they trust me with their lives. Except, of course, when I’m doing the driving.
I also have a wicked sense of humor and with friends (and passengers) like mine, I have to.
I love my life, the good parts as well as the bad. Both have given me the opportunity to experience wisdom, patience, love, and gratitude, while continuing the practice of detachment and living in the now.
As for romantic relationships, I have had two important loves in my life. Both taken from me, you might say, by disease. The love that I have experienced with them would fill a thousand lifetimes. The strength and wisdom I have gained from loving both of these women and learning to love them through their diseases and their loss have made me the man I am today.
I am compassionate and courageous and loyal to a fault. I don’t run away or bail out when the weather gets rough and I never, ever get sick at sea.

I am not a knight in shining armor. My armor has been dented, smashed, gouged, pitted, cracked and set ablaze, and though it protected me when I needed it most, it proved to be too heavy and stifling, and kept me from being truly free. I no longer wear my armor, but in spite of that, I'm still a knight.
I dream of finding a woman I can love with passion and compassion, grace and strength. Someone I can discover, who will discover me. To let go and feel free to love and be loved, completely, totally and without fear. . . every moment a memory that will last beyond time. Were I to spend millennia looking for it, only to taste it for a brief moment, it would all be worth it.
My favorite joke is:
If it wasn't for the Venetians, it would be curtains for all of us.
I also think that putting bras on cows is udder nonsense.
