Who am I? As always, it’s difficult for me to answer that question accurately. I usually feel that I do not completely know myself. By my estimation, I am a creative person, who tends to gravitate towards creative ideas and creative forms of expression that I perceive as being meaningful and at least somewhat entertaining. I am very into comic books and graphic novels, music, books, and movies. I also enjoy art museums and traveling and being exposed to different national and regional cultures. I am also a foodie. I can go on forever about food, and I am fascinated by all the variables that make food taste better or worse.
One quality of mine that may separate me a lot from the plastic people is that I feel I have a very strong connection with nature and with natural instinct. I feel that nature, the earth, the seasons, the night, the senses, sex, etc, all have powerful roles to play in our lives, if we let them.
Another important thing to know is that I have the easiest time connecting with people who are truly themselves around me, and who have actual interests that they are passionate about, instead of just being obsessed with shopping, the suburban lifestyle, or the latest reality show. I have a strong aversion to pretentiousness, as well as to arrogance and superficial banter. I prefer compassionate people who are down to earth and genuine.
In conclusion…. no, really. I think I’m a fairly down to earth guy, but I also have my head in the clouds a lot of the time. I like to think that I have it balanced, but I probably don’t. I’m a nice guy though, and I am fiercely loyal. I joke around a lot, maybe a little too much, but I never forget to stay focused on the serious stuff as well. Thanks for watching.
