Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"Relationships may grow to be exclusive but, they shouldn't
start-out that way." Every so many months these things need to be
updated. In a short matter of time we have changed and, hopefully
grown. The wonder of living to this age is how one's perspective
becomes wider and clearer. Many of the self-deceptions which caused
me to stumble in the past are recognized and corrected. The most
treacherous lie is the one we tell ourselves. Like the "Knight in
Rusty Armor", I have my flaws. By facilitating anger management
groups (also, stress groups, tobacco prevention, drug prevention,
life skills, etc.)and engaging in learning experiences, my own
hidden issues are exposed just as well as others'. But, now I am an
aware being, rather than a sleep-walker. I've held delusions about
my looks, my "intelligence", my sincerity, etc.. We all have fallen
into the "quicksand of our own mind." The good news is I'm aware of
how I am responsible for my own feelings and reactions. We are all
works in progress. And, I hasten to add, I am not a person in
recovery from drugs and alcohol (someone assumed this because of my
philosophy). However, I do believe all people are subject to
addictions of some sort. The recovery lifestyle is significant
because we all have errors of perception and fail to see our own
flaws (blind-spots) and can benefit from constant awareness that we
may need to look at things from a different perspective. Expressing
myself through writing has been a lifelong venture. I love to sing,
write songs, do massage therapy, learn guitar, facilitate groups,
share life experiences, listen...to you, life and even the silence.
We are infinite. We are here to learn...period.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
A retired Baltimore City Probation Agent, now Group
facilitating(mainly anger management groups);enjoying my renovated
home; working-out at YMCA; singing karaoke; about to re-perform in
"Jesus Christ Superstar" (4th year doing it...locally); writing;
getting to know obscured facts; being unconventional; being a
member of Community Exchange by doing massage and, most recently,
taking guitar lessons and using Skype. More significantly, I'm
eliminating the "lies" and uncovering the ego. Most of us lie to
ourselves...about our faults, our lives, relationships, weight,
whatever. One of the lies we gradually accept is that we can remain
healthy while doing nothing. Nothing from nothing leaves nothing.
Honesty begins with self. It's called "integrity". Update:
Performed in the in the Pa. Playhouse production of "To Kill A
Mockingbird" in Bethlehem. Really stretched my comfort zone; 9
performances; I loved it!! Life keeps happening. Just discovered
"Meet-Ups". Great idea for hooking-up with people who have similar
interests. Look it up in your area.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Reading between the lines. Descending into the "rabbit hole" with
Alice and imagining the infinite possibilities of existence...being
a thinker. Listening and actually hearing. Not being "that person"
the people who stereotype expect. Eliminating baggage (spiritual
& physical). Seeing through people. Just about anything I
request God force to enable me to do. Being creative; finding new
ways to do the same thing. Extracting the positive from adversity.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Reliance on a Higher Power,self-awareness/acceptance, water,
reflection, imagination and humor.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Having spent my life doing things that, in the long run, were
meaningless. And making this time, these moments, "now" much more
substantive, intense, impactful. Have you ever signed-off from a
site, tried to return and seen this notice: "Sorry but your time on
this session has ended." We face that reality everyday...with our
lives and loves. And so, we search for Ms. or Mr. Right. The
question is...is our own internal world right enough to share with
someone else? So, we're here, taking the leap of faith. If you are
here, you're a "believer" like it or not. We're all in the same
foxhole. So, I guess I'm thinking about "you", whoever you are,
hoping I'm ready and able to receive what you're ready to
give...and vice versa. As the song goes..."Will I find my love
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At YMCA and/or at a friend's or karaoke
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It wasn't me! I'm a Jersey guy.
