My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like philosophy, literature, poetry, classical and country music, debating, helping, laughing, art, wine and scotch, woodworking, motorcycles, walking, swimming, playing bar games (especially air hockey). I value loyalty and honesty. I still believe in both Saints and Heroes. I like good dinners, and love taco stands, and snow cones. I roll my own smokes and make my own pipes (for brown leaves, not green leaves); I climb trees a lot--I only started doing that in my twenties. I look like a Viking or a mountain man (so people mutter as they walk past). I have a robust understanding of culture, and I want more of it. I am observant and I like to pay attention, mostly to people and ideas. I think a lot--but there are times when I don't think, and those are great. I pray sometimes; I believe in God, and old-fashioned things like the Western Canon. Saint Augustine is my Patron Saint--as if he didn't have enough to do already. I listen to poets before I listen to philosophers.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
"I once saw the Lords of Heaven grow visibly furious with me when I tried to be something instead of to learn." -Holderlin

I am simultaneously learning (or trying to learn) how to read, translate, write, teach, edit, build, manage, follow, lead, serve, and love.

I work in communications for a non-profit, and as a freelance writer, sometimes in politics; and manage a nascent arts non-profit.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Telling people what they need to hear--in a good way. I'm also a good cook. And I teach well. I'm also a pretty good writer. And I build things.
The first things people usually notice about me
