My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy." - Hamlet

Trying to deepen appreciation of life through community service and volunteer activities.

I work with a difficult population so I try to keep it funny and real.
Started a volunteer peer support service that serves the traditionally underserved folks in Buncombe, (i.e. incarcerated/reentering community, homeless, MH/SU)

Currently reading "Beyond Belief" by Elaine Pagels and poetry by Jorie Graham and Kate Tempest.
New (still) favorite movie is "Joderowski's Dune"
New old favorite tv includes Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, Madmen, Fringe and Outer Limits
Daredevil (Netflix series)
"The Wire" (HBO)

Listening to:
Krista Tippet's "On Being" podcast

I enjoy finding previously unknown treasures in music, films and well, people. I'm an explorer by nature, but a pragmatic thinker who prefers to live in the moment and guided by healthy skepticism. What better time than now?

Update: Love finding books at low prices at my favorite book hangouts Downtown Books or Mr K's

I look at the world with unbridled curiosity! (and sometimes hope and awe at the human spirit)

Work: Housing specialist with MCO/LME
Director: Sunrise Peer Support Volunteer and Advocate Services

Have Been: Used to be an Arabic and Persian Farsi translator for the Air Force. Moved to Asheviile to be a Wilderness Instructor at a local recovery facility, an experience I thoroughly enjoyed.

I think humor can be a great equalizer. "Groundhog Day" is a modern classic! I can accomodate gentle, (Local Hero-an old Burt Lancaster flick or not so gentle humor (Lous C.K, Amy Schumer Broad City, Sarah Silverman). I like goofy humor, (i.e. "Something About Mary". I am the sum of my parts/jobs, a former Air Force Arabic and Persian Farsi linguist (20 year veteran), an instructor for the Medical College of Georgia for communication skills, bedside manner, empathy, a tech line advisor for a range of freezer and refrigeration products (Frigidaire) and a lineman for Comcast. Currently working in mental health/substance use disorder/housing.

I'd say I've been on a prolonged earthly quest since I left the Air Force. Although I love a well told yarn. My reading list includes people like John O Donohue, Matthew Fox, Rita Nakashima Brock, John Spong, Rilke, ...Sufi mystics, Talmudic philosophers, philosopher spiritual feminist Carol Christ, and on and on. My beliefs are rooted in action, practicing compassion, deferring to humor and curious, playful intellects. I look for people who have a spiritual center and do not need anyone to complete them. I believe Joseph Campbell's words about pursuing joy through life. (or is it life through joy?)
