I don't know much about me...
Now ladies (and gentleman who may be pondering), I know most people will say that's a bad thing to put in a profile. Well, EVERYBODY asks for honesty, so that's what I'm giving them.
Here's what I know about me: I'm 6 foot tall, almost EXACTLY, my weight varies from 160-180 lbs, depending on activity and how many burgers I've had in a given month (I've also discovered I still have a metabolism similar to a hummingbird, or more likely a hyperactive bullfinch; I've gotten older.)
I am African American, I am most comfortable when referred to as black and will laugh out loud at anyone who takes that too seriously. I'm a child of the 70's, 80's and 90's and it shows. My father calls me a hippie, but he's biased. I am most proud of the fact that my fearless daughter, without coercion, really digs the fact that I am her dad (tear-jerker story, but It makes my life worthwhile!)... she keeps my heart a'glowin...
I'm a people person. I love the arts, particularly theater and music. I am caring and thoughtful, considerate to a fault... I ride a motor scooter for fun and optimized profit. I build things, program things, repair things, and hack things. I am a natural troubleshooter, and a patient listener if I haven't had too much coffee. I have been known to be the guy who'll reach down into the deepest, darkest hole and snatch you from the brink of oblivion, just because you whispered "help".
Well you may say "Wow, he seems to know himself pretty well!"... Heh... yeah...well...
Maybe I should clarify my above statement: I'm trying to re-learn me. I'm a compassionate and caring person, considerate and thoughtful who's passion has dwindled due to following the path that certain people have suggested I take. I followed that path and failed again and again. To my surprise, I've begun to realize that my passion IS my path and everything else I need to function depends on that passion..
...But, you folks already knew how that works, right?
So I'm on here with the intent of igniting said passion, stoking my fire through meeting new people. A romantic relationship isn't what I'm chasing, but I find it, so be it.
SO I call out to you, you thinkers and dreamers and heartfelt souls, gamers and geeks and romantics, storytellers and poets. Help me re-ignite the fires that proved to me that this world is just and true and worthy! (yeah that was a bit over the top, but you get the picture...)
And who knows? With all this passion for life we just may get a good bonfire going and really have a good time!
