that myth is more potent than history;
that dreams are more powerful than facts;
that hope always triumphs over experience;
that laughter is the only cure for grief;
and I believe that love is stronger than death.
Points for anyone who recognizes the Storytellers' Creed. When I'm not telling tall tales I love to play games that take thought, make delicious meals with close friends, create art of all kinds, talk about matters both weighty and frivolous, go on adventures, and consume all the films and books.
First and foremost I am attracted to intelligence, integrity, ingenuity, and playfulness. Socially I tend to trek with artists, hippies, goths, punks, and geeks; there's a soft spot in my heart for anyone who is passionate enough about some part of life to wander completely off the beaten path.
I believe the best lives are those richest in experiences, to that end I try to do everything under the sun at least once. This philosophy has led to moments banal, surreal, disgusting, delicious, humbling, and sublime; even the most miserable of them I would never willingly forget.
