I am hardworking, politically active and left wing, culturally well
informed, well traveled, athletic, humorous and extremely curious
about the world, human history and human society. I consider my
life to be a process of learning that will continue as long as I
live. Most recently I have learned to hula hoop and ride a unicyle,
proof of my earnest sobriety. I have worked in several professions
and have lived and traveled around the world. These experiences, as
well as my education and my fatherhood of a lovely daughter are
what have formed me. Although my work plants me solidly in the
middle of "the system" or "the establishment" or whatever you
choose to call the world of government and law, I believe that in
many ways I have the soul of an artist. I am a writer who has been
published in prestigious journals, a DJ and an amateur musicologist
of some depth. I am also very experienced working with my hands and
can fix machines and build structures from wood. I have even had
significant success growing organic vegetables. It can probably be
said that my conventional side is mirrored by my unconventional
side. Love me or not, I am not a forgettable character
"This time tomorrow, where will we be,
On a spaceship somewhere sailing across an empty sea.
This time tomorrow, What will we know?
Will we still be here watching an in-flight movie show?
I'll leave the sun behind me,
And I'll watch the clouds as they sadly pass me by.
Seven miles below me,
I can see the world and it ain't so big at all."
