I was a firefighter who volunteered his life and safety on a regular basis for people that I never met; I eagerly embrace the handicapped... As is sung in Moulin Rougue "We can be hereos, forever and ever... we can steal time if just for one day..."
I am the one who people call on to save the day in time of need. I ran into burning buildings when others were running out. I didn't think much of the self-sacrifice it took to serve the needs of my community in times of danger. As a firefighter I have been in fires which completely scared me to no end, yet I vanquished them. As Ghengis Khan once said "In the time of need, a handfull of men can shake the world."
I am a very easy going and relaxed individual until the time I feel called to stand up for those who can not or are afraid to stand up for themselves.
I am a connesseur of the arts, be they paintings, musicals, operas, symphonies, or whatever. I have dabbled in oil painting yet am too afraid to try my hand at watercolors.
I believe there is someone out there for me. Yet for whatever reason I am afraid to look for her more aggressively ~ perhaps it is a fear of rejection.
I have read some of the great works of the masters and have studied some of the famous art pieces. Does this make me a male version of a literary whore? I dabble with amateur archaeology and I have a fascination with trains and locomotives.
Speaking of amateur archaeology... my study of some 200 + year-old maps has led me to find some artifacts from the 1750s.
I am afraid of roller coasters yet I will ride The Phoenix, which is the top ranked wooden roller coaster in the nation. Go figure?
I enjoy hiking, Shakespeare, Mozart, and AC/DC. I can marvel at the poltical perusals of The Clash one moment and casually discuss modern marvels the next. And yes, Monet is a true master.
I have travelled throughout Europe and North America. My favorite places include Boston, Wildwood & Cape May, Vienna, Luczerne, and Gettysburg.
I researched my geneaology and learned that I am a descendant of 14 Scottish Kings. - Still, I have to buy my own coffee just like everyone else.
Lastly, I am fun loving person full of wit and energy yet I found it veryyyyyyyy difficult to write my self summary. It is as if I opened a window for others to look in at the inner me, the me I keep hidden from the world.
I am confidant, romantic, and couragous.
