Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a man of many contradictions, but without any hypocrisy. Born
in a rich family, raised poor through bankruptcy. A natural
perfectionist living with the faults associated with dyslexia.
Naturally creative and loving, but with introverted tendencies.

patience, introspection, compassion, tolerance, and humor. Patience
to those who might not do things perfectly, but might have a good
point/perspective I can learn from. Introspection from being an
introvert has allowed me to see the whole picture then to act
impulsively,. Compassion for those in economic turmoil having been
for a short time homeless. Tolerance to different options, since I

actually dye it that black - not very flattering.

I have too many books. Likely somewhere in the figure of two to
three thousand of them. Most of them are non-fiction., but I am
trying to branch out to fiction. Favorite authors: Bukowski, Fonte,
Seraris, Naomi Klein, Chomsky, Ken Wilber.
Not a big movie fan, so I can't really name anything on the top of
my head. The last movie I saw in the theater was the Big Lebowski.
And, no it was not in 1996, but a month ago.

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
