Baltimore boy turned Pittsburgher. Moved to Seattle mid-September, then Tacoma. Headed back to Charm City come March.
ENFP( I can't remember what this stands for, or why I even cared).
I dig writing, painting, drawing, and reading. I've been known to wander around the city at night, meeting fellow oddballs and eating strange foods. I love punk, bluegrass, blues, and jazz( I'm not too picky about music, but it has to have balls and soul). I enjoy going to museums, libraries, and markets filled with stalls and stands.
Give me good music, a cigarette, and a book of short fiction and I'm the happiest cat in the universe.
I'm open to just about everything. What I don't know, I'm willing to learn. And just because I don't dig something, well, it doesn't mean I'll hold it against you.
I am a pedantic lay man, but, you know, without the emphasis on "man."
Dreaming of cities filled with people unafraid of police, satisfied with the economy, and comfortable with who they are and how they and others were born.
