Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hmm Self-summary. I feel somewhat compressed by this. There is the
usual stuff of hiking and blah blah blah but I will not bore you
with that. What I really enjoy is passion, conversations, art, and
humor. Not necessarily in that order, but possibly in that order,
or one close to it. I can have a slightly dry sarcastic wit, but I
can also be really silly and I have no problem being highly self
I am lively, introspective, have a few brain-cells left, which I
have burning on high (most of the time). I can identify and even
feel my own feelings. I am honest and really am not into playing
games. If I like you, I'll tell you. If I want to call the next day
I'll call and I do not call repeatedly or text too often. If it is
working out then hallelujah! If not then no worries we can both
move on and I wish you all the best.
Here is the bit that is not trying to be clever or really trying to
be anything. In the end I genuinely care about people. I think too
much about art pieces yet to be made and poems and prose that have
not yet been written. I work hard but I am by no means a finished
product. I am still figuring this whole thing out and probably will
be to some extent until I expire which hopefully will be in another
sixty or seventy some odd years.
Until I come up with more for this summary that is my nutshell. I
welcome you to crack it open and venture farther down the rabbit
P.S. On the questions section I feel that there are some questions
where I would not ever think about answering the question another
way and other questions that I couldn't care less about. But here
is the thing, big John Locke fan, this means that I am always open
to the other side of the debate to either prove my point or to take
on another world view. There is always room to shift or learn
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am about to leave Atlanta to go hike the Camino de Santiago and
then to track around Europe for a while. I had come back to Atlanta
to take care of my dad after his back surgery. He is doing
wonderfully and so i am off for my pilgrimage.
When I am done with this next adventure I plan on using my masters
in Depth Counseling Psychology to practice mental health
I also draw and paint. It turns out that art is a constant in my
life and even when I am practicing counseling in the future I will
always be creating.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being me. Oh and at not being that jerk at the end of the bar.

Not that into gangster Rap but I do like some rap and I even like
the occasional country song. I prefer classical to opera and movies
to live theater but that is mostly because I have seen some
terrible theatrical productions.
Love Food and I am fairly adventurous. I think that great
ingredients should speak for themselves and I love to cook and to
try new recipes but fair warning I am gluten and dairy free. I can
always find something to eat out at restaurants but feel amazing
now that I have adopted this eating style. My joints no longer hurt
and I am not tired all the time as I used to be. Food allergies
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Air, water, food, shelter, fire, and human interaction.

sex, a wonderful novel, the earth.

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There is no typical anymore. In the foreseeable future I will be
somewhere in Europe.
